Much Better. No?




So I critiqued myself, since I didn't give anyone else much time to do it before I plowed ahead. I think the values are working better , but it still needs a lot of work. I feel like maybe I bit off more than I can chew. I plan to do a header for the top of my blog to greet you. I think I'll post some mock ups and get your opinions.

I would recommend choosing a light source and working from there. Is she supposed to be spooky or is the place supposed to be? You may try pushing it one way or the other.
Great composition, though. Good luck! :)

I really like the long format view a lot for the whole composition. I like the expression and the head gesture of the character, but her body gesture especially her arms are kind of weird, I'm kind of confused as to what she is doing.

yeah... you guys are totally right on both counts. I dont' think I really thought this one through. I totally suck at making up poses. I can do faces okay, but adding a body really stumps me. I think I might put this one on the back burner for a while and let it simmer. I just want to be prolific! Ya know?
