so what`s this?

Ronald has moved to a nearby city to be an Artisan everybody! Right now he is seeking guidance from the local Artisan, an old Polar Aqrion that had been in this city for years, and to start an Artist must learn the properties of their materials and how to craft them.  They must also study the many properties of differing items and which their ideal uses are

    omg, why can you draw gems and shells so good?
    i also really like the expression of them both!

    I like the variety in the shapes of the different materials, especially the big red one, as well as all the different shell types. A thing about this that comes across as odd in this is the inconsistent use of lines- most of it is lineless, but the serpentine dragon and the oven door have rather thick, purposeful lines. Both styles work well, but I don't see much rhyme or reason to why those 2 subjects have lines while the rest do not- they aren't closer to the foreground, not all of the other subjects glow, it isn't restricted to characters... it is a stylistically jarring as a viewer. Again, I want to emphasize that both approaches are done nicely, but they aren't worked together in a way that meshes well. To fix this, adding more consistency to the use of lines would go far. For example, I use distinct lines in my art as well, but I leave it for foreground elements and characters, having it fade out as things become farther away. That certainly isn't the only way to do so, there are many creative uses for lines in art.

    The lighting in this came out lovely, especially considering how many light sources there are present. The table in particular shows this strongly, the way you painted it so it fades into the darkest tones at the middle is satisfying to look at. Ronald has some lovely patterns, the tones of brown work together with the glowing red to make a earthy and pleasant design.

      Oh I completely forgot to do that for this piece. I was rushing in an attempt to upload more things for my Dieviantart. As a result I sorta cut a few corners to make this in time. As for the line art I was trying to draw the focus to Ronald as -he isn`t the brightest shades so as a result I try to make him stand out using line-art.

      Thank you for giving me this constructive criticism. I will gladly apply these to my art as a way to improve. Again thank you!

        That's a mood! It's easy to miss details when you're taking your time, so it's almost inevitable when you're trying to apply speed. I do see what you were going for with the lines now that you mention that, but I feel his distinct patterns and the glowing red portions already draw the eye- even though the polar aqrion is paler, Ronald was what had most of my attention. Playing up the glowing parts and his inquisitive eyes work very well towards those ends, so I wouldn't worry about him getting overlooked Smile
