Rated 5 / 5 stars

Nice could you take a look at some of my art and maybe give a few tips?


Rated 5 / 5 stars


Nice work on the eyes, I love eyes and how they reflect, but hard to draw and make them feel realistic well done


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars


Nice realism to it, kinda funny too. I'm not sure why, but it almost seems complete with the background at least shaded in (though I have to say, the concept's pretty simplistic)... Anyway, it's fairly cool looking (you did a nice job bringing out the gradual shading too). There's a bit of unsymmetrical angle to the eyes (though I know how hard it is to get them almost perfectly straight, so it's fine), but what sorta bugs me is that it looks almost too dark, like it's in some wierd shade... But I still like it, so I'll give you a good score.

Oh, and I think KirtTheGreat's talking about some program you use on a Mac though (it's this photo filter that pretty much lets you blur out everything outside a small circle...). I get what he's saying, but then again it's sort of stupid to think you'd need to use it for reference (especially since it doesn't look the same).

ornery responds:

yeah working eyes is a strange because contrary to popular belief they aren't symmetrical on anyone really. But its a big challenge to get them to be the right degree of asymmetry.

And figures I wouldn't know what that program is, I wouldn't be caught dead using a mac, or maybe I would, because they are so horrible that I have wanted to shoot myself in the head in lieu of using them.

Great work!

It looks pretty good to me! Did you use that light tunnel effect in PhotoBooth for a reference? Because if you did that's awesome haha. :3

ornery responds:

What the heck is light tunnel or photobooth?

The eyes are good, but I think you've paid too much attention to the expression as it is a bit wonky. If you add some darker lines and more developed shading it will bring the expression out for you.
