Sorry for the long review...
first off the drawing style is awesome really nicely done, plus its traditional graphite which is a plus.
I have a theory on this drawing though, that this was doctored, because I found it strange that both faces had the exact same proportion, especially in the eyes (one eye is lower then the other). Despite the fact that is easily done when using tracing paper, you got it exact down to the very detail. The hairlines are different, but the faces and hair objects are EXACTLY the same, give or take some minor differences in lighting and dirty surfaces, which makes it more convincing. The part that got me were the ghosts in the hair match each other perfectly.
Not gonna throw any accusations just some observations that 90% of both images mimic each other down to the pixel.
Even still you didnt mention whether it was photoshopped or not and you still achieved your main goal of creating a nice looking artwork. Brilliant composition, you pulled it off nicely with the loop the hair creates with the face. besides one of the eyes being off the only thing I see that I disagree with is the background.
Usually I critique hard when it comes to works that look divided, however this looks very smooth and nicely executed. The stroke difference when it comes to the skin, feathers and background also makes it more interesting.
The only problem I see is the rotation of both of the hands, both rotations seem impossible in comparison to elbow placement, you might need to show more rotation in the fore arms.
Besides that, awesome work, definitely gonna fav :D.
That dinosaur has one hell of a bicep!
overall this work is pretty sweet. its pretty clear that this is probably one of your more faster works that gets the main focus accross, in which you did a good job on.
The only problems I see falls under a matter of opinion, such as some of the awkward proportions in the dinosaurs arms and legs. other then that, brilliant work :D.
looks awesome, especially for traditional work. I think you can go a bit further with your work, probably clean it up a bit and add more color blends.
I also noticed the rocks, I know you want to give the perception of distance by making it look less vivid, however the best way to recreate objects such as rocks is by understanding how the flat surfaces manipulate the shape (aka planes).
overall though, nice job, keep going with your work :D.
missing some elements
overall the light and color looks great no question about that. The texture one the ground is very finely detailed as well. There just needs to be more then just a tree, an ocean, and the sun.
I know this is not a new work based on your authors comments, but when it comes to landscape pieces, its best to remember the concept of: foreground, midground, and background. a subtle mountain range, a boat/ship, or a land mass in the background would probably help.
Thank you for your detailed review. I agree with you about the depth, I should've made the horizon line farther away, and put something on the background for depth.
Thanks for your review, very helpful.
The way you managed your light and color is probably your strongest point, If you had a bit more clarity with the character in the foreground it might give a better illusion of depth, however thats just a personal opinion. Oddly enough the lack of detail on the character in front is complimenting the amount of detail on the characters in the back
Everything is also very well placed, nice composition. The only flaw I see is where the robots arm overlaps the drummer, it seems like its just cut out.
I like your technique and style, its very well developed :D
