    If you want help I would be happy to give it a shot - we're supposed to be deciding on a direction for our artistic practice this semester and I have no idea how to choose between 2D digital painting, animation, film, etc. Some experience working for a client would be great

    I suppose there's no harm in doing so.

    How about you give this a paintover to make it more wartorn and atmospheric. I'd be interested in seeing what you make out of it.

    Awesome. What are my limitations? Do you want the exact same lighting/layout/camera angle/etc, or can I change some things up?

    chromatic abberation only really works if you're trying to emulate low-quality camera shots


    just makes it difficult to look at for more than a couple of seconds

    like misregistered newspaper prints




    It's a good painting but unless you're trying to make your viewers feel uncomfortable whilst looking at it (horror genre, etc) then you may want to rethink that specific bit
    i like it, its not hard to look at at all

    Do whatever you want with it.

    EDIT

    Well, keep the map's layout the same, because that's how it's been playtested. You're changing the aesthetic, how it looks and feels.

    I find the nose just a little tricky to look at, that area just to the right and above the nose

    Painted in Sai, colour levels adjusted in Photoshop.
    Original, non-colour-corrected image here

    Edited:

    Unsure of the gameplay of this map, but I assumed that players could approach via the bottom right area. The smoke from the fire/shell provides the cover that the trees previously did. Radar station balconies undetailed.

    Edited:

    Actually very unhappy with how this turned out. Not enough imaginative alteration or understanding of colour, especially in the non-colour-corrected version. May give it another shot.

    yeehhh "wartorn" doesn't really mean "varying shades of brown"

    i like it, its not hard to look at at all
    it's blurry as fuck for no reason and i can't focus on anything without spotting misaligned colours

    You're making concept art, not a fully finished art piece. You should treat it that way.

    Lay down the art direction, the feel and the colours. Forget about details.

    Thanks for the input, can I ask why though?
    Oh and before I had it in CMYK and I didn't realise the colours would be that fucked on the web, they're RGB now.

    blue/orange is boring

    green/red for the top one is way more interesting

    You might also want to try working smaller, make them thumbnails. The ones I did were scaled way down from the original screenshot size, so I wouldn't get too caught up in the details and could totally focus just on the atmosphere.

    I haven't done much in the way of art for a while. Here's a skeleton caveman named Gabbro.

    First time really trying out animal print stuff. Also tried to practice skeletal structure (he's supposed to be very sturdy and stocky but I think I need to work on the general shapes of bones n' stuff)

    I think you should try experimenting with more contrast. A lot of your pictures kind of have a muddy feel to them, and it flattens them out a lot. Give it some atmospheric perspective, add some fog to separate things, or make bigger changes in value between the ground and the sky.

    I had a dream where I had antlers. It was me alone (and naked) in the dark with a sink, a light, and a mirror. The area had no walls that I could see. I looked in the mirror and saw the antlers, and I tried to shave them off with a razor, but bled profusely.

    This is a vision people tend to get when they might become future drug addicts. (I had the dream before learning this)

    Holy shit. I was painting this on my eMachine netbook and I just saw it on my desktop LCD.

    The colours are flippin' mental. Way too green.



    Thanks for the feedback everybody. I'm gonna do a bunch of colour studies from photographs similar to those ones I did awhile ago:





    (only this time I'm gonna limit myself to 5 minutes). Realistic colour palattes elude me

    this literally is a thread for your own art. there are many people online who improve tremendously, that's not what this thread is for and i don't see why one person's progress that isn't you matters any more or is worth posting in this thread more than any others.
    make a thread for other peoples progress, that isn't what this is for

    This is great, I remember you posted the bottom panel ages ago

    The river/waterfall are very weird and the perspective to horizon placement is off, but I kind of like the fisheyed look it produces in this case

    We've been working on portraiture in my drawing class after doing hands and feet
    This is the first time we had a model come in

    Only had about 50 minutes so you'll see that it's not finished in places like the ear
