a collection of work by 1st and 2nd semester sophomores
This piece is drawn very nicely and I like the way you drew the guy into her hair, but I am confused on the meaning of why he is like a part of her in a way, it makes me think he died or something sad. Maybe include more detail to explain what the relationship is between these two characters.
I really like the idea in this piece, but I have to say I like the way he's intergrated into the hair in the top piece much more than the second, He's much more natural in the first one. The handling of the media is beautiful! I wish there were a little bit more background or even just a solid color because the white seems a little empty or unfinished. Beautiful concept!
I do enjoy the top piece more, and I think it is a clever way to convey your concept. I also wish there were a background, whether it be a solid color or subtle pattern. Also, your line quality is very well done, especially in her face.
As other people says, I also enjoy the top piece more because the guy blend with her hair more naturally. it is really nice idea of making a guy out of hair! awesome:) I hope to see more colors or background in the piece, too. maybe pink or some other Valentine-ish color?
I think the top piece is more successful, so good job on doing two! I do wish there was something more to the piece to give more information about them. The drawing quality of this is really nice though.
The line work in the top piece is fantastic. I'd try taking it to a light board or light table, and tracing it on another sheet of paper with ink to make the lines even crisper and cleaner.That being said, to fulfill the requirements for the piece I'd like to see some color in that top piece, Maybe a red background, and do the linework in white ink. That would really stand out.
The first one is really great! second one is little bit confusing because girl and boy looks together on the first one but second one looks they are in the different worlds.
"differend worlds" meant... they looks unrelated, saparated.
I also really like the top piece, the color is beautiful and I really enjoy the texture in the hair, I think the concept is really strong and the more simply solution allows us to marinate more in the depth of the concept and her expression, awesome piece.
The simplicity of the piece is a relaxing thing to view and your line work is spectacular, however i feel the lack of color in the first illustration makes it seem more like line work and anatomically the hand looks a little off. The unique idea of the girl thinking of a boy is well rendered and easy to read.
The first piece is a lot more stronger than the second one, also the line work is really nice. The concept is a little confusing for me, it seems like she is thinking about her lover and that he's a part of her which is why he is in her hair? It also feels a little unfinished because of the lack of color but overall it has a very relaxing feel to it.
II do agree with others about second piece being more interesting. I can tell that she is happy just thinking about the man. However I also enjoy how the realistic the woman is colored at the bottom piece. I think if you combine best idea from the each work.
I like the first piece much more. The silhouette of the male figure works really well into the hair. The linework is beautiful. But the one strand that's supposed to be the eye looks random. I feel like it can just fine without the closed eye. I would've colored the face just a little, like the cheeks, just to have some interesting color.
I like the way you draw hair, it looks so precise and pretty.And just like everyone, I think the first concept is a little better, but the second one looks more finished. The second one also look like something that came out of Pocahontas. The wind, the flow of the hair, the whisper... I don't know, I like your ideas. It's very sweet.
It took me a minute to see the man in booth images and then to understand what the concept was behind it. I like the way you illustrated her hair in both and the way you were subtly able to integrate him into both, but ultimately, I'm just not getting a Valentine's Day vibe from them.
Interesting idea of doing a diptic instead of just one piece- I really like how the boy's head fits into the girls hair. Since it a double piece I would like to see them relate more- there needs to be a connecting element - maybe in the media or color. The bottom piece gets more detail while the top feels more empty/neglected.
This is a clever idea, ou only smell the hair of the ones you love! I am drawn to the bottom composition more because of the contrast and color, but I feel that the man's head is squeezed in. I might also extend the color of the womans back more to the left, so that it doesn't look too small.
These are both striking and lovely pieces, but I'm honestly more drawn to the first one because it's so much clearer and has a less tentative nature to it.I think the concept is really great, and you can draw a lot of conclusions from it, depending upon your own view of romance. The way you creatively constructed the profiles out of hair is really ingenious and nice; I just wish the first piece had gotten the full color treatment as well.
Hey there, I can see that you're still working with things. I definitely like where the top one is going right now. At this point, I'm still fairly unclear of the concept. Your line quality is pretty nice here, and you're experimenting with taking something simple and making an interesting composition. But as I said, as of right now, while I feel that while it's love, I'm not sure the narrative behind it. She's thinking of him, but there's something else that it's missing.
Agreed that the top is more successful. The one on the bottom looks to me more like he's a creeper smelling her hair without her knowing…. which… i guess could be a valentine card. for creepers. no, but really. the top one is drawn better and more interesting compositionally. Conceptually they aren't as clear as they could be, though the top one suggests "daydreaming" a little better. Maybe his head should be more the same size as hers? Or, if the composition were different, her hair could be swirling up above and behind her head, like caught in a wind and his face can be in it up there (since we think of thought bubbles typically being ABOVE people's heads)??
I think its great approach to draw two people connected. But not like the first one I am not surethe person behind woman's hair is a man or a woman. and I wish the woman's face is colored.I find simple and clean on the final.
