DW IV Final Illustration by kidkidkidkid DW IV Final Illustration by kidkidkidkid
My final illustration for Dominance War IV contest. Some may think it's good enough but I'm still not satisfied with it cuz I'm not skillful at drawing surroundings and background. I had time to upload this and request comments and critiques before the contest ends, but I didn't do so. It seemed silly but I just wanna see how far I can go by myself.
Anyway, it ended and I can draw something new again :). Feel free to leave merciless comments and critiques.

It's good that you are hard on yourself, because it pays off. I don't see anything wrong with the picture. You did a good job with where you put characters and point of view, making the closer things blur. As far as color, it looks phenomenal. The details you added are awesome. You used the same color pallet throughout the entire picture, and that is something other people struggle with. It has good levels of brightness and contrast, so overall it's a 5 out of 5 in my book. My favorite part would have to be the detailed eyes in her wings. :heart:

First of all, I'm afraid to give you a critique (as everyone should be) because this is such an amazing piece of art that it made my jaw dropped in awe.

From far away it was hard to tell what was going on because the focus is unclear due to the tight colour scheme. The picture didn't pop out and it isn't as attention-demanding compared to your other works.

In the fullview there's a lot of amazing details but it made the picture too busy.

A solution to make the surroundings less noticeable but still keeping the details is to lower the opacity. With a lower opacity the colours become less eye-catching and it pushes the images to the back. If some images needs to be closer than the others (i.e. the monster that is attacking the men vs. the monster to the girl or the blue beams vs. the purple swirls) then you can easily select that area, add a layer mask, and do a gradient dissolve. This is just like lowering the opacity but with this gradient only parts of the area is pushed back more to create depth in the middle grounds.

As an result with a non-vibrant surroundings it should open up the picture and it should be clear on where the focus is with a glance.

I hope this helped. :)

I know every artist is their own worst critic, but I must say the first word that came to mind was "wow." The entire piece feels very chaotic, but in a good way, the world is ending, and the main character is loving her work. I know what you mean about surrounding images, I do the same, Ill focus alot of energy on the main focus and the rest feels like an afterthought, but regardless... This in incredible, insta fav.

You seriously have improved a lot with your new Queen art submission. This is nice, but Queen is so much cleaner and the value scale was taken up a notch too. You're really good, and getting better.
