Hey man, love this pic! One of my favs of your work for sure! It's actually influenced a piece I'm currently working on. My pic is totally different to this but the inspiration came from your work. Keep up the awesomness!

I actually feel that colours are your weakest area. They never seem to do your talent justice.

I'm sure you could improve this to give your characters and drawings more life and depth. I think you could benefit considerably by studying some colour theory... BTW I am a big fan of your work and your pencil drawings are simply fantastic. I think your anatomy and 3-dimensional understanding is phenomenal. I absolutely love the amount of detail you put into all of your works.

I am not saying I think your colouring is awfull - you clearly understand light. That isn't the issue. I just personally feel that the colours come off flat and a little dull and I think it spoils your lineart and original work. What works on paper with a pencil doesn't always work filled in with colour on photoshop.

There isn't much contrast and you use fairly similar values in your shading, giving the whole drawing a flat appearance. It might be interesting to see more dramatic lighting and really being daring with the lighting/textures/brushes/shading etc. I can see you've made a sort of gradient on the backdrop of this piece, but it's so suttle it barely achieves to establish itself as a convincing background nor is the girl really lit up enough to establish shes the foreground. It's all sort of blended into one and although colour has been carefully and consideringly applied, it has nearly lost all of the appeal/life/emotion of the original pencil.

You clearly understand the concept of digital painting but I just wish you'd really get knee-deep and start learning how to turn your fantastic pencil work into dramatic, atmosphereic and emotional pieces when taking your linearts into photoshop. I see SO much potential.

I apologise that if you find this offensive and don't care what I have to say. I know you didn't request for a critique at all. In which case you are welcome to ignore me.

Lovely work, keep drawing!
