Any suggestions? by XGinaTonicX
Any suggestions?
Hey guys, I'm stuck on this picture. I feel it's a little bland. Where can I go from here to make it a bit edgy (and more my style)?


Hey zusammen, ich stecke schon eine Weile mit diesem Bild fest. Habe es vor einigen Monaten wieder hervorgekramt und mühe mich seitdem ein wenig damit ab. Es wirkt für mich recht fade. Es ist mein erster Versuch den illustrativen Stil auszuprobieren, zunächst mit Bleistift, und es dann per Photoshop zu kolorieren. Aber wie gesagt - bisher finde ich den Entwurf noch recht niedlich und langweilig, aber ich weiß nicht, wie man den Stil hier etwas brechen könnte.
Habt ihr Vorschläge?

Art often takes strange routes, don't you think? ^^

Yesterday I had a truly beautiful experience and that's the reason why I'm sitting here and typing these lines which, by the way, can be sometimes quite difficult for me, because English is not my native language.

"What does she really want to say?"
Thank you for asking this question. :bow:

To make a long story short: I've submitted an artwork yesterday and the result of it is a short story written by a young man who felt inspired to "translate" my drawing into words. I was completely aghast because I had never expected this "type" of resonance. I can't describe what it feels like, really, I can't.
In any event, I've promised to give him a feedback so I started to search for words and expressions but I don't think I can find good enough words to express how special his work is and how much I like it. So, if I can't say what's on my mind then I have to find another way of expressing my thanks and paying tribute to the artist. For example by sharing his short story with other members on my own page and invite you to read this impressive story.

In my opinion the magic of storytelling is painting pictures in the reader by using no more than subtle allusions. It creates a mind movie with amazing power and provides scope for imagination. At least this was my experience. ^^

As I have said previously - I'd like to keep a long story short (haha :D), so: Ladies and Gentleman, curtain up for "Till death do us part". :clap:

Den werde ich haben - sobald du mir gesagt hast, ob du die Ameise vorher ausgetopft hast. Das ist unglaublich! :D

Na dann will ich mal nicht der Spielverderber sein... Das war ne Plüschameise vom Rummel und durch die Perspektive... :rofl: Ne Quatsch, ich hab einige Versuche gebraucht um mal ein paar interessante Fotos zu bekommen. Ich hab da locker ne Stunde an diesem Ameisenpfad zugebracht und immer mal wieder abgedrückt.
Vielen Dank!
