Oh Hi my name is Alyssa and I don't like this. You're wrong! This is awesome! I loooove your background oh so very much. I'm glad you used the spnoge tool on the waterfall it adds a great texture. The people look really well put together and proportionate. Maybe if you played with textures on them too? Add a lil somethin to their clothes?
I think your solution for working with the foliage is great -- that is, adding more flat/graphic leaves and branches in the front -- when I saw it I was like "aw, I wish I'd done my foliage more like that". It has a quirkiness that does more for the illustration than realism would.I love your characters as well and that you chose a kind of strange or unfamiliar topic. I think some of the props/decorations could be just a tiny bit more rendered, because since the culture is unfamiliar it's a little bit confusing. Just the tiniest bit more detail would solve it, though, it's really close.Also I love the softness of your colors and that you drew attention to one character with the red clothing.
Neat! The background is beauuutiful. I think it'd be cool if you lowered a part of the cliff-type thing and show something that is even farther away in the distance, or maybe have someone stand at the top, near the waterfall//someone really close up near the foliage in the very front.
NIce work, the characters fit the environment perfectly! All of the colors play nicely and I like watching them interact.
this looks really great. The color is great, the composition is great. I can't say much about it. I do think it may be interesting to try putting something in the really close foreground, just for a different sort of design. good job
This is super great! I love the brushy textures, and I think it adds to the organic theme of the piece. Great color choices, and narrative. Although the narrative is really simple, it's not boring and it's super easy to grasp which makes this piece really enjoyable. Great work!
The textures in the plants and brush strokes you used to create the waterfall looks great. Also the detail of the marking of the faces of the characters look great as well. The foliage you created looks nice. I think you should definitely add more.
This is an excellent illustration all around. Your people look like they belong to the background they are in, something that I find hard to do. Everything looks equally rendered and correctly proportioned. Great job!
I really like your entire image a lot. Everything looks very believable, as if it were an actual space that people could go to. I also like the way that you rendered your characters a lot. They look like they are alive and moving, despite being still images. The only thing I could think of to improve on this scene would be to add more images to it. I think this is a really great piece and I can tell you put a lot of work into it.
I think that doing an illustration about these people is really great and super interesting! It is almost like a fairy tale because we don't often paint our faces with cool designs :) The colors are really nice... it reminds me of The Lion King, actually. The detail you put into the faces/paint is really awesome and they have a lot of personality. I really like how textured this is because I really get a sense of dirt and misty water. The one thing with the rock wall and water fall is that I think there could be some highlights and shadows and then it would really pop!
These earth tones are awesome. I love how subtle these are! I think you definitely captured a lot of depth with this piece and I don't think you have any thing to worry about with the foliage! Like always, doing it a couple times will make you hate foliage less! (right???? ;) ) I love the topic, I love the cultural spin - this seems really telling of the culture, almost like a national geographic study or something (do you ever read that magazine?) I think it could be fun for you to try also adding some fun textures to a couple things? Maybe dirt liek textures in the back wall? or maybe some spray from the water misting about further? I also think that you could add a couple more pieces of foliage or rocks or stumps or things in the foreground so it really seems like we're voyeuristically looking through the forest at a clearing!AAAANd, I just wanted to say thanks for an awesome semster. I loved having class with you and I'm super happy we met! I really hope to see you in patterns class (eh? eh??????) and it would be awesome! It is awesome having really positive people like you in class- it was amazing, really!Thanks again for everything, I hope I get to see you again soon!!! keep in touch for real!
