    Ballerina

    Hi All

    After some time away I am getting back into art, and again trying digital art. This is my third finished piece and it was a steep learning curve, I can't look at it without seeing the mistakes. I found blending particularly hard and gave up on the neckline working. I am here to improve and would love a constructive critique highlighting main areas to work on, and if possible any links to good online tutorials. Thank you

    Beautiful and powdery-explosive. I really feel the dynamics of her pose and balance point. Good one!

    Nice composition. I love the pose and dynamic of the background elements - I would even push those further with some more faint dusting trails for extra movement. I think the blending is fine, it looks natural but I do agree with you about the neck. The head looks a little awkward and the neck is rigid, detaching it from the rest of the form. I feel the right shoulder shoulder should sit back more. Maybe loose or soften the highlight under the chin to allow the head to sit down more too.

    One of my favourite tricks, that my art teacher taught me when I got stuck was to turn the painting upside down to allow you to look at it with fresh eyes. (Or in digital you can flip it side to side - ArtRage has a nifty little shortcut for this. Just press and hold "H" for a quick flip view)
