What a fantastic, dynamic piece. I really love the PVC/ leather; it's painted so well and is probably the most photorealistic texture of the piece in general. (I bet it was so much fun to paint.) The abstract shapes of the fire juxtaposed with the tight rendering of Mystique make for a great contrast. My main criticism would be that the fire is reflecting off her clothes, but her skin appears unaffected by the flames. In reality, I think the firelight would reflect off her skin to some degree. This would have looked great on her belly, and perhaps if you added some warm tones to her arms they would "pop out" at the viewer more and add to the 3-D effect and the perspective in general. Possibly some rougher texture on the arms, to suggest skin/ scale texture, would also help the arms come forward more (although they do already). In addition, though this is not a criticism of your technique, I think you could have cropped the picture in a graphics program, to eliminate the border and make a neater presentation overall. Anyway, I should also mention that I love the flying hair, and Mystique's expression is awesome. There's not much more I can write as your skill outstrips mine, but I can say I enjoyed your work thoroughly! Wish I could paint like this! Best wishes, Donna.
Why has Mystique (covered all over in natural blue skin as she is) pink gums?
Strikes me as extremely odd. I don't know why, but I would have envisioned her with pale/light blue or even white gums, not the strikingly "normal" colour. It's for this small detail that I can't quite shake the feeling of a spray-painted "ordinary girl" (with big guns. Okay. That's not quite so ordinary. Granted.)
EXCELSIOR!!! lol excuse my nerdiness if you dont get the reference, that means your sain
ANYWHO... Your X!treamly X!traudinary piece of of MARVEL art has been featured in Part One of my Three part MARVEL Featurette, quite obviously its X-Men Here is the link [link] Feedback is allways greatly appreciated thats just my sugarcoated way of saying demanded ^^
Now... If You'll Excuse me I have to send this EXACT!! same message to 114 other poeple!! YES FORM LETTER!!! IM CRUEL, INSENSITIVE AND COLD HEARTED!!! *thunder clap*
absolutely amazing work! I absolutely love it! The shiny surfaces of the clothing and the weapons really have great detail on them as they reflect the explosion!
Only thing that slightly bothers me is that the skin color is maybe a bit too flat and not vivid enough. It doesn't really show a reaction to the explosion, by that mean there's no lighting on her skin reflecting the fiery background (needs a smidgen of warmer coloring here and there?). It's like she was having a scene in front of a green screen. There is lighting on her but it's more like...as if someone had taken a shot of her with flash on. I dunno...I'm so not good at critiquing xD
Anyways, that's some awesome job done right there! It's a beautiful action filled piece. I can only hope to one day be able to draw or paint things like that
I am big fan of his and their work, and I love this illustration, I never worked with this type of material but I think the fantastic, and their pictures have been a great inspiration to me! Congratulations once more!
Utterly superb! An incredibly smooth, pin-point perfect proportional image....awesome! My only nit-pick (although not something quite in-depth enough for an official Critique!) is that in order to link the charachter to the background, you'd need to give her a flame-coloured highlight around her edges from the where the explosion would back-light her. Having got the reflections on her latex so painstakingly correct, it seems a shame not to add this detail too. But that's as much a stylist choice as a technical one. Really enjoy this....so pretty!
Did acrylic when i first learned to paint. Imitated Sorayama's tutorials in the back of his books. Now I like watercolor for the ways you can play with color. Might be incorporating more gouache in the future.
waw..... mike thanks for reply my question i really appreciate that thanks a lot.... right now i used photoshop n painter for painting but b fore that i used sama teknik with u but not acrilic i used water color n touch up air brush can u check my art work sir.....

Whoa, easy tiger! I'm no speed demom. These are paintings from my career since 2000, so they've just been adding up. In fact, I should probably slow done to keep a better pace of having new stuff to show.
