Some groups on dA have different critique games and stuff and I was thinking maybe we should do one?

How it works is you say one thing you like and one thing that could be improved in the piece posted before you and then you post one of your own things!

So

Person 1:

Person 2: I like the emotion but it think it's too busy.


Anyone wanna give this a shot?

YOU AND YOUR AWESOMENESS NEED TO GO AWAY YOU'RE NOT PERMITTED HERE
I love your style :B Your drawings have so much personality. I think one thing that would make this better is if it were more contrasty- but not too much. Just a little.

SHUT UP YOU'RE THE ONE WHO NEEDS TO GO AWAY BECAUSE YOU AND YOUR BRILLIANT WORK BELONG IN SOME KIND OF PROFESSIONAL GALLERY

One thing that I really love about your photos is the way you handle the lighting and how it affects the subject(s). It never seems awkward (well except for that one thing with the apple but never mind about that), and it always brings out some kind of distinct characteristic like the pattern of spines in the leaf of this photo.
You're excellent at capturing sunlight, specifically, and all of your nature shots have this essence of brightness, and with this photo, warmth.
Maybe you overdid the bokeh just a tad, but really I think it works in most of your stuff because, especially with macro shots, it highlights the focus of the photo.
You've probably already experimented with all kinds of different shots, but I'd love to see you post some landscapes or panoramas. I would love to see how you handle the composition of a piece with a focus on multiple subjects and just more stuff in it.

(Save me I'm starting to write like Charles Dickens. Please excuse the thick sentences and overuse of commas.)

Silver interesting style. She feels a bit blocky but that could be what you're aiming for. I would make the shoulder a little more rounded though. I like how you did the face. -wishing I had more to say after your critique-

I like the colors and the leaf is pretty sharp. ^_^ The composition is a bit odd though. I think the branch should either be further into the frame or have more of the leaf. I think the leaf would be a better choice because the color is so eye catching.

oooh I'm gonna mix it up a bit. Here, have a drawing of mine instead of a photo

haha don't worry about it, I didn't think you were copying me at all. Besides, that's what art is all about: doing a really good job at copying


message 9: by Silver (new)

Silver wellll Nightshade linked me to the rule of thirds XD so I've been trying that.

your drawing's interesting. Personally I can't stand drawing patterns (maybe why I'm so bad at doing hair) So I think that's amazing. And the patience! It's a really interesting idea and I think it would be awesome if you colored it.

[Edit: oops, Silver you beat me to it...I'll add your critique]

Mhm so.

[SAAAAARAAAAA]
Like: I like the design overall and the little nit-picky details (derp. No one says nit-picky anymore.) The little details compliment each other to form an appealing design.

Critique: Although the three leaf things are good by themselves, I think the composition could improve. The one on the left seems a bit too low. If you had more space, you could have moved it further up and tilted it slightly upwards. This would make more of a symmetrical shape.

[SILVEEEEEEEEEER]
Like: I like the concept. Personally, I used to have some bizarre thing with eyes too o-o so this is pretty cool

Critique: For the golden tear concept, instead of simply changing the color of the skin, I would suggest to digitally draw over the eye for opacity. Then you could add shading and it would amazing.




message 11: by Silver (new)

Silver I'm a bit confused about what you mean on the critique... I think what I did was take away some of the color of everything except the iris and then tint the skin but not the iris and then make the iris more vibrant. What exactly are you saying? XD btw on my ipod will write more later

Gorgeous photo...I like how it just fades into the distance. I think you could also bring out the walkway more if you saturated its color in an image editor or something--but not worries about that.

(First time I've actually drawn a dragon since I was about six. So.)

I was just saying to draw over it for opacity, not just tint the skin, to look more like a tear, ya know?

yeah... I keep trying to get a picture of an actual tear but I always miss it :P

I love how you didn't make it some cliched classic dragon, but some utterly bizarre lizard dragon thing that is amazing. Hmm try making the scales on his back bigger because they are hard to see, and maybe add something on his head? It seems a little empty.

First off, I would like to just take a moment of silence to revel in the beauty of that pocketwatch.
Okay.
I love how pristine the focus on the watch is in contrast to the background. The sepia color fits the picture and it doesn't seem artificial. The only thing I would have to say is maybe balance out the composition a bit, like having the watch where there's emptier background. Overall it's absolutely lovely. :)

Silver o.O that photo is stunning. I love the focus and the GREEN-ness to it o.O It looks like something that you'd find in an illustrated children's book. I'm not sure I can come up with any helpful things to improve >. It feels a bit odd to me because I instinctively want to focus on the face but can't see it XD

I think the purple is too saturated. Overall it's pretty sharp though. Good job ^_^

We should put it more up near the top, so it can be more visible to the general public.
