It's not suicide by DanielAraya It's not suicide by DanielAraya
Another painting, SDCC's just around the corner!

Gotta thank :icon3nrique: :iconjhstuart: and [link] for their feedback on this one, this painting was a turdpile of colors before they helped me make sense of it.

*edit* and :iconnerfcommie:

Your work on backgrounds is really impressive, they're not the sole focus but they carry a great deal of atmosphere with them. I just wanted to say that. Aside from that the perspective here works really well, love how she's reaching out to him.

The subdued colors work really well here. They really make the reds more intense!

Yes! I love the focus on the man with the scarf. I've tried, and I just can't keep my eyes from focusing on him. Great stuff.

If you're ever interested in collaborating, just say the word.

...And if I already said that to you recently, don't say the word you're thinking of. ;)

Cool. I'm always looking for people to short comics (1-2 pages, or 8-10 pages) or pinups, for my indie projects.

Lookin' good. I especially like the mountain peak (top left) and the girl.

Funny thing about you liking the mountain peak is that this whole painting started with that mountain peak, and that mountain peak is a mutated study from the plein air cheaters blog that I failed HARD at. It also makes me laugh that you like everything around the actual focal point, lol.

hahaha, sorry about the fail. Which photo were you studying? Also, I think it would help to have some colored, glowing eyes on the best to help pull the viewer's attention. Of course, I can also understand if you were trying to avoid that. If that's the case, may define the creature a little more?
Reply
:icondanielaraya:
DanielAraya Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
yeah, colored eyes might help. I've got a few other tweaks I need to add to it too.

This was the pic I had been doing a study of : [link]

I did. I was jealous. It was really the foliage that gave me problems, I had no idea how to tackle that.
