Yes! Try not to use a static "front" or "side" view, and make sure to use your perspective and foreshortening. :D
You could do that for the background, or I'm not sure how, but emphasize how hot it is. If it's still night make sure you see those freaking bright lights.
Eww, I have memories of going to the dirt races that my cousin (or my father's cousin, some family member) entered in. Muggy hot, stale dirt in the air, super loud cars and pain-splitting-headache-educing lights.
At least I went once so now I have reason to skip when they come around again.
Have you taken art in school? (Have you finished school? owo)
:3 Like I said it's still rough. I'm just trying to get things down, because I usually get discouraged if the thing I'm currently working on doesn't look good, so this way I can look forward.
It really doesn't seem like it's night. Is it moving or stationary?
It's a nice car. But nothing feels special about it. It's just there. Nothing pops and makes you go "this is pretty cool!", composition is what I'm saying.
You've got more room, I really think you should use it. I know that the summer races sorta counts as a summer theme but you've not captured any "summery" feelings.
This is a very strange thing to say, but your car has no emotion. It's not organic, and it's positioned dead center. As a general rule in art you avoid placing things "neatly", as it becomes boring.
With your actual pixeling technique, the only thing I can point out is that dither does not have to be 50% all the time. I know it comes from a doll site, but it works.
Your skills are good, but this doesn't come off as a piece of art. There is no feelings, messages, or anything to be conveyed. It's a car on a race track with some fans on the side.
anatomy wise, she looks great! Shading wise... it's a bit choppy...
Anyhow, originally i shaded mine just how you are, with layer shading, but with the differences between the two colors, the distinctness just stood out too much... with the diveting, it gave a nice toned and blended look...
your layering looks nice, especially in the hair and the swim suit... but the skin's a bit distinct in color change... it definitely stands out though...
i like the pose, and the whole imagery of her holding the ball in front of the sun...
i just think the skin needs better work with the shading and the white is a bit off...
I can't wait to see the finished product with the background and all...
Vişne Tanrıça is Turkish for Cherry Goddess. (o_o You commented earlier and I didn't notice.)
:| I guess that people just don't know how to word things or can't find flaws. Even so they could do what I did in FireTears' thread, and really post why I liked it instead of saying "looks great!".
I'm really really in the rough stages of my entry.
Everyone else is using dithering to create more colors, so I'm going to do something different. :3 (The spray paint blending is just to get the look in my head. That won't be the way it connects)
