This is in response to this painting?
I can see what he's saying, but he has no idea to describe it. Such as this gem:
It does look like an intent of make a train in movement; now, while the train tries to be in movement the kid is just stand there with out any movement at all, it looks like a fucking stamp
I agree. For what reason?
why? again, because of a really bad use of this style.
Style has nothing to do with it. The pics on Google follow the train, and the background blurs since it is moving rapidly away from the train. There are also lots of lines which suggest the path of the train.
Now to the next, and probably the WORST fucking thing about this picture: the bear....more specifically the smile, it's more than a disaster, it's horrible. Don't know why but you just decided to use the pencil on it... very bad decision, it doesn't match at all with the rest of the picture.
The smile doesn't nuke the picture to make it an abomination, but it could look more like it was attached to the bear, rather than a scribble over the painting. You could try using a softer edged brush, or draw it on a new new Multiply or Soft Light layer.
Of course nothing's more reliable at getting your message across than a good ol' insult at the end.
Particularly since the artist is the only person who's going to read it ...
