Critique Plz - Sorcha's Gift - 2D

had hoped to get some critiques on this while I was painting it but not many people responded, so I finished it for now.Finished product: would love some honest critiques especially with painting style, lighting, color and composition.

I can't really say much but forget I said anything about a green light source your painting is absolutely incredible! My drawing, doodles and canoodles are no where ner your standard! I'm just inspired by your art.

Updated based on other feedback



Would love to hear something back on this from you guys here at cgsociety. :(

I changed the hands and fixed the hair... and minor things.

Very nice overall. You've captured the mood very well.

The area where the clavicle ties into the shoulder looks a little flat.

Fixed some more things...

I want the hands to be realistic with the lighting and stuff but still fit... and I'm finding it difficult..

Beautiful

Very beautiful!

My feedback would be to change the overalll lightning, make the light from the hands more stand out and keep the oposite side of her hands in the dark. The source light is in the hands of the girl, right? No other side light nor front light is supposed to light the scene. If that's your intention, consider it similar to photography. When you take a picture of your palm and there will be sun in the view, the palm will look like a black siluet. This picture is similar, the sun is in her hands, so the back of the hands should be very dark with some overglow on the sides of the palms. And maybe some streaks of light coming through the fingers that are not so tightly put together, as an interesting detail. Check the picture of the wizard I took from google search just to ilustrate what I mean. The wizard's hands that are not facing/touching the sphere are much darker.

However, that is when you are going for real visualization of the scene. But that doesn't need to be the case with you. Sometimes different, non-realistic, but still interesting view of the scene is even better.

Just my 2 cents.

I originally had the hands dark under the light, but because the light is so bright, and because its so close to her hands I was informed that I needed to have something like this effect.


I assume it has to do with the strength of the light. However I did not use quite as red and saturated tones because it messes with the color scheme. I opted for more light seeping through the cracks to lessen it. I don't know if it was convincing.
