The orange on the left is taking away from the character because it is a stronger and brighter than the rose.
Your art is really beautiful but I often notice sudden bright spots which do not fit.
It looks great. I would just recommend to bring out the eyes more, brighter colors / highlights, since the hairpins draw a stronger focus. The green note on her collar is a bit distracting as well.
im still experimenting with the whole "galaxy eyes" most artists do. haven't found the right method yet
The line art seems well done. However, I think, there is too much happening in the face area and the face is generally unappealing. The head hair is spiky and strongly pointing down, while the mustache is curved and elegantly pointing upwards, that contradicts. Also, the eyes, added together, have the same size as the mouth, which is off putting. For that I recommend you this video from Sinix Design: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZluGXgpdJj4
Plus, the pupils are slightly off, looking towards different locations.
I just looked through your other art, which looks good, and realized your anatomy is occasionally off. especially your girl characters tend to have oversized heads and your arms tend to be different sizes.
Sorry, for seeming harsh. My English is not really good. I want to add that I am not good at art, so, please take my advice with a grain of salt.
All solid criticism, thanks man- anatomy especially :)
This picture is stunning!
Though if I may make a suggestion: Please use stronger contrasts. I altered your art a bit, made the red pop and the background had a strong bluish tone; it gave the picture a stronger effect. I would want to show you the altered picture but I don't know how, so I hope you still know what I mean...
Keep up your great work!
thanks! i know exactly what you mean, this is a dimmed version as i normally go insane if there are bright colours :D and usually that ruins everything. for others anyway, i love my eye-bleed acids xD
The colouring was done well. Concentrate more on shading, muscles, posture and face, so that your art becomes more expressional.
Thanks for the feedback.I just got back into art and I'm just now realising how complex the human muscles and face really are.
You could participate
Huh! Perhaps I shall! :D thanks for letting me know!
Jazza said that the art should be detailed. Your piece seems just a bit smoother than the original one, try to remake it with more detail and your chances to win will be higher.
And give credits to the original creator of Yoshi (Nintendo).
Yoshi debuted in 1990 and I Jazza said the character should be pre 1990.
