An experment with eyes :D
corel painter essentials 4



Your colouring and shading is awesome!!
I especially like the way you can see the strands of her hair ^-^
Im not too kean on the highlighted bits of her hair tho, it kinda looks like its done is the wrong places in my opinion.
But overall good job =]

It's a good start!

Your art is good, but not terrific. But then again, it's not bad either. It's perfectly okay. But it's a good start!

One thing I have an issue with in this piece is the composition.
Why is the face covered? This would have made much more sense in a full body or half body drawing, where you can see something covering the face.
Now, from the looks of it, hair is covering the face. First I thought it was some kind of thick blanket, and that is not what you would want hair to look like.

Also, the blending tool is not the answer to everything.
Your blending is, again, okay, but I would like to see less blocky hair, and more flowing strokes with the brush.

Now, over to the eye. I think it's pretty. Slightly better than okay.
This is because the eyelashes are completely covering the eye. (Okay, so I can see the eyecolor, but you get my drift)
So, this may seem beautiful, uses SPARINGLY. Try drawing the same eye 3 times. Cover all the 3 eyes with eyelashes of varying length. Just to see the difference it can make.

So, as an experiment it's fine, but as an artwork it's okay.
I would suggest you practise more with how to use the different brushes in Corel Painter. I have Corel Painter X myself, and even though they might not be the same, there's an assload of brushes there. And blenders. Coarse blenders may work better on skin, giving it a more realistic look, and smoother blenders might work better on fabric, depending on the type of fabric.

So, good luck, and i'm looking forward to seeing more than an experiment from you!
