When I was a kid I spent hours listening to the stories my grandfather told...and from this stories I was inspired to create this piece...I used not only Photoshop but also a bit of Paintshop for some of the lighting and effects

Thumbs down

It looks like you used some type of filter in photoshop to simulate lighting, but it doesn't seem to work too well. Try to plan out your lighting and then paint it in steps onto the entre piece. That way your paintings will appear seamless.

funny you didn't read about politeness...but then again you can't really expect much from someone like you......A person is not born an artist...they are born with the talent and it takes time and dedication to get great on yeah maybe my work is not the best...but at least I don't make others feel crappy about their stuff I try to encourage them to keep trying...really sad that you as a so call artist can't grasp that concept....Nevertheless you should look at your own work because sadly it's not that much better

Jumbo_Spaceman and Morverlyn,

Just to refresh your memory about some simple rules that you have to read before to post in this forum:

1. Be courteous and polite. Show respect to the opinions and feelings of others. Use of the forums is a privilege, not a right.
4. Critiques and responses to images are to be constructive and related to improving the quality of the artwork.

Try to make constructive crits next time. What you can tell her in order to help to improve this work?

I don't want to close this thread. So, keep it in a good level, ok?

This isn't bad work at all.
Besides, improvements are achieved by getting conscious of more and more things.

Getting this statement as a starting point, in my opinion, Morverlyn, you should start to develop your work in WIP Forums, they're great!

What I sense from your work is that you were too worried on finishing it. You should tweak it more. As an exercise, I think that you should forget masking and effects, try getting the same results only by painting. Or instead, by improving this technique. I think that they are good to be used, but we shouldn't abuse using them.

Be perfeccionist. Show your work and listen what people say (when they're helping you, of course ). And start looking the world more carefully, it's light.

Nice start. You should be more patient, though.
luv [*]
Art serves conciousness.

Don't be discouraged...

Hey Ana - This is not bad at all so don't let one persons opinion get you down. There is a nice warm feel to the artwork and you did a good job at conveying the story. I can't draw/paint for nuts so I can't crit this. :0]
