Gloomy darkness

Hey MasterMerol,

--Production--
I can see that this painting might be relatively connected to your other one, in that the sand angel with her friend being taken away, cries. It certainly looks like she's crying with the thick, blackened eyes and her sombre posture. The combination of pastel-like textures and clean-cut lines portrays a sense of an urban fantastical myth.

--Experience--
There is the sense of doom and gloom as the air starts to surround the crescent moon. The shape of the clouds is almost akin to the sand dunes below, like little baby eels swimming through the sky. Everything seems almost myth like. I also like her curls. :3

--Style--
I am still not sure what texture you're using, but it looks like it's on some sort of bumpy paper. Ah, yes, and then I read one of your tags: Pastel. Golly, I don't really know that much about art at all, then, do I? Anyway, I do my best. Her slumping position is reflected by her looking at her knees attached to the ground, wishing to be able to fly away to save her friend.

--Wow Factor--
This brings emotion with it as we realise we feel compassion with the angel in her plight. If you connected this one with your other pic, "Angels", then it would make better sense for the viewer I think. There's a lot more darkness in this picture rather than the other, which was more of panic and despair.

--Personal Tilt--
I couldn't find much to flaw in this one, it's a very great piece of doom and gloom within the angel's soul. She is sad and gloomy, and we feel her pain. And if that's the goal of your illustration, then you've succeeded.

Hello again CurvyPixel!

--Production--
Yes, it's connected to the other one.
She's just staring at the moon waiting for the sand to "eat" her completely!

--Experience--
Thank you, I'm glad you like her hair :)

--Style--
I used Canson paper, it's thick and has a lot of texture!

--Wow Factor--
That's what I was attempting to.
I put the link to the other drawing in the description, so I think no one will have problems realizing what's going on :)

--Personal Tilt--
Thanks, I'm glad I reached the goal!

THANKS FOR THE GREAT REVIEW AGAIN!!

Like a Fable

Hey MasterMerol,

--Production--
The textures very and are really nice contrasting. It seems like an old painting, one of like a lore of old times. However, it has that modern, almost emo feel to it (I hope you excuse the word) and it has emotional ties to it too. There's a mixture of clear cut lines, and smudgy paints, which I think is good.

--Experience--
There is the one angel, who seems to be tied to the ground by sand, and the other angel, who seems to be tied by a rope round the neck, wings burning. The sand angel is trying to save the roped angel, but can't seem to reach. It portrays a kind of love lost, an emotion that is universal, and allows us to connect with the character.

--Style--
Very fable-esque, like telling a story through a painting of what happened in myth. The nudity I don't think people will find offensive, since it reminds me of the old Roman and Greek paintings (or whatever) when they had gods who were painted naked but not necessarily with erotic desires.

--Wow Factor--
There is the sense of professionalism that draws you in, that this is a well polished art with a story to tell. I felt the X factor mostly because of the above reasons, and the atmosphere that these elements, fused together, generated.

--Personal Tilt--
It's a great painting with large emotional tug along with it. Some people might find the nudity offensive; I myself did not, even though I am particularly keen to shun that kind of sexuality. It helps portray the story of two angels ripped apart of their friendship with an almost-chance of hope, diminished. Thanks for sharing with us your beautiful art.

Hello CurvyPixel!

--Production--
Hmm, I wasn't attempting to making it look emo, but I respect your opinion.
Thank you!

--Experience--
You got the idea :)

--Style--
Yeah, the nudity I really don't know why would they find it offensive since I wasn't going for anything erotic.

--Wow Factor--
Thank you, but i'm not a professional at all!
I'm glad you felt that way.

--Personal Tilt--
I don't see anything wrong with nudity. I'm ok with it as long as it's not free.
Thanks for saying it's beautiful!

THANK YOU FOR THE AWESOME REVIEW!!

Improvement needed, but hey

Hey Spysociety,

--Production--
It's fairly good, with some minor difference between the quality of the lightning bolt, the tower itself, and the other elements. I like the clear cut lines of the tower, but I feel that the rest of it should be that way, since the lightning is a bit blurred. It even seems as if it's moving in front of my eyes. (Gotta stop drugs :P)

--Experience--
Dark and gloomy, with an epic fantasy feel to it (and I'm not talking about the game). I wonder if there's even people living in there, and if they would need to evacuate since the lightning is getting dangerously close. Nice light and smoke effects make this more ambient and atmospheric, as if at a great height.

--Style--
The mood of the piece is dark and well portrayed, however I think there's a large contrast between shadows and different light effects. For example, the light band diagonally across the bottom right doesn't really seem to fit in, unless it's a cloud really close up. There isn't much detail in the tower, either, it could be improved by some texture effects beyond a simple light gradient.

--Wow Factor--
I wasn't exactly excited about this art, but I wasn't repulsed either. It's fair art that needs a few tweaks, and perhaps something else interesting to look at. Because right now it's just a tower and some lightning, with a lot of empty space in the bottom right corner. You could possibly have a plane or helicopter, or even a guy parachuting. It would make things really interesting.

--Personal Tilt--
I like it, but I think it could be improved. You could add some elements, add texture to the tower e.g. stone bricks, put some more interesting and logical light effects in, and it would be extremely professional. It's still professional now, but I could see this reaching the sky with potential. Excuse the pun ;)

Well, I think you're a bit right, I thought adding a bit of light in the building sides but it would be a bit too colorful, I prefered to have the things a bit more dark.

Hey thanks! Glad you liked it! :) As you can see, there are some windows "yellow-ish" which probably means that there is someone using light there, so there is people inside hehe :)

Yeah I guess that I could improve on it ;)

I think that the bricks aren't necessary at all, isn't a "poor" building, he is more well constructed so the bricks like "out of place" aren't at all necessary but the light optics effects could improve it more.

Thanks for review!

Nice and peaceful

Hey Joshsouza,

--Production--
I would just like to say first of all: this painting is great. It really depicts a peaceful scenery. The reflection in the water is accurate, and brings along with it a peace inside. The variety of textures that you paint with is very wide and broad.

--Experience--
I look at this painting and I immediately feel a sense of peace. I know I've already said this word "peace" three times already, but I'll keep on saying it. The depth of the bushes in front, to the water, to the trees beyond, to the mountains far yonder, and the clouds, just portrays a real depth of a true scenery.

--Style--
I like acrylic. It has a real "antique" feeling about it, the thickness and vibrancy of the colours. It is different to digital art because it has that realness that digital can never encompass. The reflection in the water adds to the already peaceful atmosphere, a sense of stillness.

--Wow Factor--
This has a real X-factor, that of peace and a real sense of calm. I would like to have a picture like this on my wall, just one of scenery and the blessed peace that comes from admiring creation. (And it's OK if you're evolutionist it's still exquisite :P)

--Personal Tilt--
So you already know that I love this painting, what else is there to say? A sense of peace is conveyed through scenery more than any other type of painting, I believe. You have portrayed this well and I love it. Thanks for sharing.
