Joe, guess what? I digitally painted today! Check the BYUIA blog; it's linked on mine. It's just a fun piece. But it is digital, huzzah. Your blog changed! Nice. As for this painting, good work. Since you asked for feedback, here's what I'd say: 1) Nice color scheme. It gives a specific mood. I also like how you added bits of red-- almost complementary colors. Maybe add more red in different parts, to make more stand out. Not tons, but a little more here and there, just really subtle, to tie it all in.2) I like how it's vignetted so that the focus is in the center.3) The silhouette thing is cool. Maybe you could think more in terms of shape-making. Instead of just scribbly stuff (which are cool, too) make shapes as well. I think if you did, it would help design it a little better. Like this: http://www.jonfoster.com/#goto=illustration-new&viewimage=39 notice the background: no detail, but distinct shapes that tell the story. Just a thought. 4) Do you know who Jon Foster is? If you don't...you NEED to. Go here...now: http://www.jonfoster.com/ He is amazing. Notice how he thinks in value and SHAPE. He doesn't just paint; he designs his compositions really well. 5) You should also come to his lecture and demos on December 1 and 2. He's coming to BYU! Like...this is huge. Ask me for details. You really should go. I'm so excited to learn from him....or you can disregard all this. :) keep up the good work!
