"PAINTOVER PLEASE" - painted crits on demand - with Steven Stahlberg


bri-marie sorry I was late, I finished it on Thursday but couldn’t upload it until now.


Hi Steven, I am a big fan of your work and it would mean alot for me if you could do a paint over of this painting I am working on as I am struggling alot with it! :slight_smile: Thanks so much!


ok how’s this? I addressed some proportion issues and tweaked the lighting a tiny bit. Hope it helps.


Hi, thanks so much it helps alot! :smiley:


EDIT: I dropped this. Might come back another time for another critique :slight_smile:


Hello! It’s about this painting… I know it can be pushed further but I can’t find the way :sad:
I’m really curious to know what you would do

thank you very much!


Hi, here’s the latest one, sorry it took a while again :slight_smile:


Fantastic!! Thank you very much, this helps a lot! :buttrock:


What a great idea to offer these paintovers. Thank you!

I have this idea and I’m a bit stuck on the atmosphere and the lighting. Is it interesting enough regarding composition and lighting? The idea is that she’s on a sort of scouting the hangar with her giant robot friend. The light in the hangar is supposed to be dimmer than the bright outside.
The outside should be light, but with a lot of nebula. Hence the atmosperic perspective. That’s what I intended at least. Please let me know what you think.


Put some changes in there myself… But please let me know your suggestions.


Ok, I did it, sorry about the delay. Hope it’s clear. I straightened her trigger finger, because we never ever ever ever ever put it on the trigger unless we plan to shoot something within a few seconds. :slight_smile:
And a few other tweaks, perspective on the mecha head, her chest, etc.


Hello! I’m totally new to this site, so I hope I’m not doing anything wrong. I was really hoping to get some help with a painting I’m working on. A problem I’m having is likeness, as this is supposed to be Margaery Tyrell, but I’m unsure whether that’s obvious enough. The painting itself also just seems off, but I’m afraid I don’t have the skill to recognise what exactly is wrong with it! I suspect the jaw is a problem, as is the unnatural-looking hair. Either way, I’d appreciate any pointers you could give. What you’re doing is really great!


Here’s Margaery, subtle changes but important ones, because it’s where this actress “deviates from the norm” so to speak, another way to say, these are the things that make her recognizable.
When you find those deviations, don’t hesitate to push them, you can’t go wrong - if you go too far, it simply looks like a skillful charicature. :slight_smile:


Thank you so much, that helps a lot! :slight_smile:


Hope this thread is still alive… mood I think is that oh crap moment when a bit huge thing just destroyed everything in its path and is coming towards you. This is the most I can get with it, I feel that its missing that finished or polished look. the lighting seems kinda shady too, thanks!


I’m looking for a job right now but I’ll get to it asap


sweet thanks, i look forward to it!


Hello Mr Stahlberg,

I’ve been working on this for a while and confusing about lighting and composition. At this moment I don’t know how to fix some problems that I did not realized .
Thank you very much indeed for your suggestions.


Here’s this one…
