a collection of work by 1st and 2nd semester sophomores
Looks like a romantic first date! They both look nervous and embraced. You did a really good job showing both of their emotions with their facial expressions and body language. I like the way you drew your characters too.
Wow I love this piece so much. His butt gets a little funky and jiggly towards the bottom so I'd say to really pay attention to his anatomy under that snug little red shirt hes got on. Great environment and beautiful shading!
Really cute, and I love the way you handled the water. Also, the red outline is very successful in color and where you placed it. Nicely done! I agree with the butt comment, but otherwise really nice.
This is an awesome piece. You made a great choice by using warm colors for them and cool colors for the background. It really brings the focus to them and gives overall depth.
I really love the expression on her and his face. it is such a cute moment of their date. I am little confused about the upper left part though … are they going through tunnel or something? if it is, maybe you can make this runner out of bricks or some sort to make it more clear?
He isn't wearing any pants is he? Like... Where's the shiny bubble buns? Haha, it would be really interesting if he was just butt naked. It would make this piece different and special. Heh, the girl is staring right at it too... But overall I like this concept and the romantic atmosphere you created. Great coloring too!
This is a really romantic scene. I love the colors you used for the boat and the couple. But I wish the boat and landscape had a little more detail. I think if you darkened the wall of the tunnel/bridge they are going out of, it would help the man come front more. I can't tell what the white cross marks are on the wall. Are they graffiti? Other than that, I think the whole mood of the illustration goes well with our assignment!
I love your style, way to watercolored is really good. i like the water handling and trees. But I am agree with another people..."butt issue." But I love this! Maybe the one of my favorites?
I really love the style of this piece and the selective palette you used in the foreground, my one suggestion would be to bring a little of that orange or red into the background to help carry the eye through the piece.
I love the coloring and how you rendered the water. The only thing that is really bothering me is the anatomy of the guy. His shoulders are huge, and his back and butt are all lumpy and wobbly. The girl on the other hand is really, really well done! The hourglass shape and how you drew her arms and head are killer. Nice piece.Side note: I'm also confused as to what's going on on the underside of that bridge. I know you're trying to imply something, but it's just not really connecting for me. Is it the implied outlines of bricks on the underside of the bridge, or is it implied reflections off the water?
I love the sense of light and vibrancy you were able to achieve with your use and placement of certain colors and their temperatures. The asymmetrical composition is also working really well here and it guides you eyes though the entire piece. The man's butt is looking a little wonky, that for me, that's the only issue.
The color vibrance and the idea comes off really well. It might help to darken the shadows on the figures and underneath them to really show that they are going under a bridge. I guess I would say that the butt is a little off as well, but it's not a huge issue to me. I also love their expressions, they are really cute.
I love the color choice of the piece. I like how she is blushing and looking towards the bottom. I think you should add little bit more dark tone (not a lot.) Underneath of bridge and guys pants (folding of fabric) could have little bit more darkness
I like how you chose to unify the couple with their red color scheme, and it stands out against the blue. However, the couple and the background seems disunified. I feel like you spent more time on the couple and made them stylized, whereas the trees look less stylized. The same thing goes for the markings on the well. They're incredibly distracting, and if you wanted them to look like bricks or something, you could've made them darker.I was confused about the side of the bridge they're going under. Maybe you could've made it darker to show that they're actually just coming out of a tunnel, and maybe make the couple as well have a few dark shadows, especially the male.
I love the color choices as well as the use of background and foreground none of these distract from the focal point of the piece which is think is great.
I think the concept of this is tried-and-true, while it avoids cliche. The handling of the media is beautiful and i love the limited red palette for the characters. Still, I am SO distracted by the thing on the left. I thought it was a sail but realised it wasn't within the boat. I think its a tunnel actually, but I think more apparent shadows and greater continuation on the other side is needed to sell it.
Nice use of colors and composition/ details, great expression on the girl- I'm really getting that romantic mood. I find it a tad cliche- reminds me of the little mermaid. - Still good work!
This is really, really gorgeous. The figures and the way the y curve along with the boat, in particular, works really well. I only wish the background's blues and greens could work a little better with the main red of the drawing; they just seem really really flat in comparison. Maybe add some soft light layers in hot-temp. colors?The way you suggested the pattern of the water reflecting light on the bridge had me confused for a moment, but now I'm convinced you're a genius.
Very sweet, Kyle. Nice classic image and lovely facial expression on the lady. I would definitely fix dude's jiggly butt (and make it clear he has pants on… Ying, by the way, you are cracking me up tonight)… maybe a textured pattern on the pant could help? or just deepening the color to brown or blue grey to eliminate confusion. Also, I want to see the girls hand-- if she's resting on it, flat on her palm, we'd see at least part of some fingers. Play it out if it helps-- like draw the boat 3Dimensionally and continue her arm as if the boat is see-through. It would have to be super tiny to fit in that little bit of hidden space. Right now it looks like when you hide hands behind your back or feet behind a rock to avoid drawing them-- you don't need to do that, so don't make people think that. Also agree with others that the left side/ bridge tunnel interior is distracting/ confusing. Sara K has a good idea.
I can feel valentines in there. I really like the way you use watercolor. And red, color of love, makes eyes focus on them and the line on the figures works well but feels too separate with surrounding.
Very sweet and touching!I think that what they're wearing here definitely sell the concept of the date. Really love you use used the watercolor to make their articles of clothing look so textured and interesting. I'll have to agree with Dana about what she's said about the booty. Mayhaps a place to put her hand could be on the lip of the boat? It might jostle her placement a little awkwardly but she wouldn't have a ghost hand.Something to help the man's pants read as pants could be the faintest hint of pockets? Right now because of the color tones and what was said above it looks like he's just wearing flesh leggings. Or if he's a proper gentleman, he's wearing a belt, right? HahaI definitely agree with Sara about the bridge solution. Perhaps as opposed to marking the texture and "bricks" under it in white, you could go over it with a lightly darker color. Since it's in shadow (being underneath), it's rather startling to have something so bright. But very cute concept, and their expressions are great.
