...What have I done!!, Juan Jiménez (2D)

Title: ...What have I done!!
Name: Juan Jiménez
Country: España
Software: Photoshop

In this piece i accomplished some things i had learnt from great illustrators and i wanted to try out. I think i've made a step forward on lighting and texture :) Still a long way to go, though. It took me endless hours but i'm happy with the outcome. Crits welcome!!

Overall the painting is incredible, but there are a few tangents bothering me.

The tangent from the mouse's screen right cheek and the ape's fist.

The bottom of the giant ape and those points on the wall are barely touching in various places. (plus I'm not sure why he's holding that chain)

Finally the spear flying above the mouse towards the screen is forming a bit of a tangent with the ape's loin cloth, plus the value/colors are similar. (and it looks like the ape is looking at the spear as opposed to the mouse)

It's so amazing, but my eye keeps going to those spots as they break up the flow a bit. Otherwise I'm just blown away, I love the rendering, poses, faces, just great work all over.

Thank you guys! Very nice critics Actually i wanted to add a stolen treasure in one mouse's hand, but it didn't work although i tried at least 10 different spots. I'll check out those tangent elements to improve the flow!

You are not THE Juan Jimenez, are you?
Not that I'm saying that your work isn't amazing, it's just that it was such a coincidence that you have the same name, are a talented illustrator and are Spanish...

I thought it was a real big change in style if you were to be the same one.
I guess you know him but just in case. He's been one of my favorites of all time:


Hope you like it if you didn't know him.

Nevertheless, great work you have up there.
