    Following Tutorials

    I am new to ArtRage - great software. Have been attempting tutorials to work through the program. One is the portrait tutorial posted by Dali, the other a landscape tutorial posted by Khalid.

    All critiques of my attempts greatly appreciated. John.

    Welcome to ArtRage and the forums! I have to agree with coops: youŽre off to a fine start. The best advice is to simply jump in and start fiddling about with the program and its features. IŽm sure youŽll be posting regularly in short order. Have fun!
    The only problem with humor is that no one takes it seriously.

    Welcome to the forums John

    I have say one thing about the nose, on the little girl which is a fantastic painting otherwise, the nose needs just a little more work

    Off to a great start indeed

    Since this is a critique forum, let me offer my 2 cents. The light seems to come from the right side and over her left sholuder. Therefore, the highlights should be on the hair on right side of the picture and the shadows should be on the hair on the left side of the picture. I wonder if a little darker shadow needs to be where the hair meets the right side of her face. That would be the left side of the picture which is of course the girls right side.

    Where the hair touches the left shoulder some shadowing might be done to make it no so flat.

    I like the way you textured the skin of the face. There is a great expression there with the mouth, the turned up nose and the eyes.

    Where the white of the eye meets the skin, would a little narrow brown line outlining the eye help to give more depth to the eyes?

    Remember, those that can paint, paint, and those that can't critique. Wish I could remember who said that.
