Realism Digital Painting from imagination: Finishe by Dex91

Let me just start off by saying. I've never written a critique before at least on art so I hope that this can help you. Overall this is...

This was a speed paint with no reference. My tablet stopped working right for a while and so I stopped with digital art and could not post anything. This shows a bit of improvement though. I am happier with this than some of my older work.

Let me just start off by saying. I've never written a critique before at least on art so I hope that this can help you.

Overall this is a very eye catching piece. I think you did a wonderful job with the eyes and I thoroughly enjoy the colour. The first thing that I noticed though is that the ears are off. One is higher and slightly longer than the other the higher one is a little bit blurry as well. Perhaps it would do you good to look and study references looking directly at a person like you have here. I have seen some of your studies and correct me if I'm wrong but I haven't seen any from that direction. (As good as your studies are)

The second thing I notice is the hair. It in my opinion looks rather flat and body-less. It also lacks a lot of the detail and style of the face and so doesn't really fit. It looks kind of like a piece of paper that was cut out and placed on the head. Perhaps try to paint it without the custom brushes as it makes it look far less natural. I really hope I don't seem to harsh I really do like this picture. If I seem mean please forgive me I am not trying to be.

I love how bright and detailed the eye is. It is very gorgeous. I know I keep going on about it. The third thing I found is that the picture has to much of a glow to it. I see the effect you were going for but I think it went just a little to far. It is really bright and detracts from the face. Perhaps try less of a glow in the skin and maybe a coloured background? Instead of glowy wight?

I hope this was helpful to you. I really like this picture and want to see many more like this. You are far more skilled than me at this. Keep up the good work! Still can't get over they eyes! Thank you for sharing this lovely work and have a wonderful day. :)
For my first journal on here I've decided that I want to give away some free art. I'm trying to improve drawing people so I want to draw people's characters. Basically you can come and request a character and if I get to it I'll draw him/her. I am only drawing portraits at this time. Keep in mind just because you request it doesn't mean you'll get it. I will try and do as many as I can though.

How it works:
Post in the comments with a request and link to a picture of the character.
I will message you if I've chosen you.
You will then send me what I need. (see below)
Also if you like what you get it would be much appreciated if you would feature this journal so others can also see it. Thank you!

What I need for your picture.
I must have at least one photograph of a real person as reference. If not I won't paint you anything. Sorry but I need a human reference. You may send me a few different ones saying you like perhaps the eyes of one pic but the lips of the other etc and I'll try to paint that in.
I also don't mind if you send me drawn or painted work to. Those are really useful as well.
Basically send me all the info you have of your character.
You may post up to 5 characters this may change if I get to many requests. I also can't promise you you'll get them ALL painted. You may only get 1 or none at all if I don't get to it. Don't be offended but I do have a life. (Full time student, part time employee) 

What I won't draw:
Basically anything pornographic or overly sexual. I just want to gain experience drawing portraits. Also at the moment no animals because that's not what I want to learn to draw at this time. Perhaps in the future though.

Remember by posting your characters here you are giving me the right to portray them as I see fit and all artwork remains my property. You may post it on deviantart and other sites with credit to me as the artist and you may not profit from it in any way. I reserve the right to ask you to remove it from any site for any reason. Thank you for understanding.
