Closer by ElkeCanus Closer by ElkeCanus
My work to February 14. I'm late as always>< Oh well...

Personally, I don't really like lovey-dovey stuff with kisses and all, so I made something different. What can be better than big friendly hug?

Ha-ha, such coincidence! It's very beautiful place. It's a reason why I choose photo of this city as example for background.

Thank you for comment! :heart::heart::heart:

Hello,

I am from :iconfeedbackpaw:, and I am here to provide you with feedback, helpful tips and hints, and also redlines and greenlines. All based upon your request about feedback on this specific drawing.

The first thing I noticed, and also what I like the most, is the characters, the city, the light rays, and their clothes.
The characters:
They are working really well together, and I’m impressed over how you’ve made them hug. A lot of people struggle with making it looks like the characters are in the same picture, but you’ve managed to do this very well, and it’s easy to see that these two characters care for each other.
The city:
It must have taken a long time, that’s for sure. It looks amazing and the details are breathtaking. You have all the reasons in the world to be proud of the work you have put down in this picture.
The light rays:
I’m a fan of how you’ve made the light flow in this picture. In the front we can see those tiny circles of light, almost like when you’re taking a picture and you get this awesome effect. You’ve managed to make just enough of it, so it’s still visible while I don’t take the attention away from the characters.
The clothes:
I like the way you’ve shaded the clothes. You have made the folds visible which makes it easy to get the feeling of clothes, and not just a paperbag.

What I think could need more work is the shadows.
Shadows:
Now, they look really good, and it seems to me like you’ve placed them more or less exactly where they are supposed to be, but the picture looks a little bit boring because of the flat color you’ve used for the shading.
It looks like you’ve shaded with gray on a multiply layer, but have you ever thought of trying to shade with different colors? Personally I’m using red, blue and purple depending on the effect I wish to get. Red = Warm. Blue = Cold. Purple = Neat mix between the two.
I found a tutorial which explains a lot of ways of shading: [link]
I think your pictures would pop out a lot more if you try to shade and light with different colors. It makes the pictures more interesting to look at, and once you’ve mastered this you’ll be able to create breathtaking pictures.

I hope this was helpful. Thank you for submitting your lovely artwork to our group. We are looking forward to your submissions in the future. You are a great artist, and you will get far with your skills.

Have a great day!
