Hope this pic can make more people donate som of their money to starving. Most of us have way more than we need! But some have nothing...
Tell me what you think of the drawing, please.
as for your other images, i think you either focus on what's your point in a illustration or put something of what's you feel important: that's not ingenuous nor stupid, no matter how the subject may be light or even childish. that's something i value the most, if it's not just a trend, it will help you largely in way.
for the image itself, i think that the composition is good and the rendering, if quite careless, it serving the shadowing and lines in the right places. i think that being that you want to state something with this image, you should study more how you may say your message with the medium at hand:
how can you render emtyness with lines? how bold and decise are to be your traits to state desperation or need? this sort of things, so that you can make different tries.
for instance the kid' face is not much compelling (i'm sorry as it sounds little rude, not my intention)
Hey there Aurora. your probably getting tired of hearing from an old grandpa like me,But I know you got the stuff.This piece is one of your best IMO.and it does look like you might have rushed here an there a bit.
You got lots of heart Kid'o, this world is under that Evil prince let's keep that chin up.
I want to see more from you.at your age the sky is going to be the limit on how much you grow,remember the more you do the better you will become,and the better you become,the more you will do.
( practice is your ticket )
Oh no, Bryan, I canŽt get tired of replies like that! Thanx for the advices, both of ya. IŽll keep practicing!
it's pretty decent, but it seems to be missing a lot of emotion and drama. It's a good start, but does not go further than what I assume is a picture reference. I think you could push it further and in differnet ways. I suppose it depends on how strong you want the concept to be
I agree with Joel. While I appreciate the message and the spirit behind the piece, I think maybe you've missed an opportunity to really play up the drama.
In keeping with Marco's suggestion, how about trying to render a piece like this without ANY rendering on the child, whatsoever, except for his face and eyes? And maybe think about putting more details (and much finer hatching) in the background, while leaving the majority of the body of the child stark white ... that might convey the "emptiness" by, in fact, NOT rendering any lines, except on the eyes.
