View Full Version : "Angel" - Need Critiques for Developing Artist!

03 March 2006, 05:26 PM
Hello, I am new to this website and hope to learn a lot from this inspiring community. This artwork was created based on a photograph of one of my custom 1:6 scale dolls. If you're not familiar with doll customizing, feel free to view my website at

The image was created in PS7 using a digital tablet. Any constructive critism is welcome!

Hi, I've seen the dolls in your site, some of the are really nice and realistic!!
Your drawing is good, only the hair could be better, also if so they're similar to the dolls' ones ;-)
Try to look this nice tutorial at ( , and there are some others good tutorials in internet.
Good work,

The hair seems a bit too stark, bright and vibrant compared to the smoothness of the rest of the work. I suggest looking into hair ref. photos, and try adding some more volume to it with greater ranges of tones then just the tones of violets and blues you have between the hair strands. Try actually including shades into the color of the hair itself where it recedes back. I think it would really help to liven the piece a lot, and make it a better quality artwork overall!

i agree with dEDa, the hair definitely needs some work to bring it up to the level of the rest of the painting. i find hair to be the most awkward part too, its just a matter of practice really. also, theres a very heavy line around her face which shouldnt really be there. also the hand, handle, and rope could do with some tightening up, maybe add some more depth

This reminds me of The1stAngels work so much I'd think he was your hero, if so, nice work. Features detailing are very much his style in my smoewhat stupified opinion.
