Painting Practice


Piece I did (of my character Arthur) to practice painting. Trying to get a better handle on lighting and textures.

Done in Paint Tool SAI

4.5/5 because It's not as detailed as it could be. just bit more touch up to make a full 5/5 :D

I like his ginger hair but I wish the background wasn't black it pulls the character down a bit. Otherwise, this is pretty great!

hot damn! love the pose of this one, got great gesture, lots of energy. also the painting is awesome! you really like purple dont you :D

I find purple works really well for a more natural feeling shade.
Black is too harsh, IMO.
Thanks for the input! :D

Very well done, good lighting and texture. I like the general look of this character. Maybe it's just my eyes, but the arm that is farther back looks like its a bit out of proportion compared to the leg that goes back in space. I personally would have drawn that part differently, but besides that, i feel the rest is very well done.

A nicely rendered character. The detail is really thee. I feel like it's a bit flat, though.

TopSpinThefuzzy responds:

What do you think I could do to improve it?
