goodluck to ya andrew:thumbsup:


I really enjoyed your image. The colours are composition are great and I really like your brush stroke texturing, it’s very oil/acrylic feeling and very fresh on the digital medium. The hands down best thing about this image has got to be the eyes. They are alive and very emotive.

As for criticism to make the piece better. There’s not much I could say that I don’t like. I really liked your use of field of view with the travellers blurring into the distance. The woman in the foreground is really pulled to your view and focus, especially her over exageratted eyes. Though I found the grass patch to the left was very white, bright and crisp and it distracted my eye a little bit from the girl. Possibly a little of the same field of view effect you used around the piece there might pull away from that area. That’s stretching to find something though hehe.

Thank you for posting!

Oh yeah! Could you possibly quickly explain or detail your design/drawing process and the applications and brushes used :wink: I really like the feeling of your piece!

Keep up the great work!
