critique - Nelvakre by CosmicUnicorn critique - Nelvakre by CosmicUnicorn

Critique of: [link] by ~Nelvakre


Sometimes I get the spontaneous urge to do in-depth critiques.

I like Nelvakre's painting a lot, but to try and type out my critique... ugh... Too many words. Painting is visual.
So I did this quick edit. Entire correction took maybe an hour.


List of edits:

-Changing the temperature of the scene from yellow to blue.
-Raised the sky to expand the scene and add scale (and add balance to the composition)
-More atmosphere to create scale
-Unified values
-Unified color
-Touched up Rarity a little to match her to the scene



EDIT: lightened the foreground a little extra.

And looking at it, I may have accidentally connected the ledge in the foreground to the mountain behind it... though perhaps it wasn't intended to be part of the same rock structure... Ohhhhhh the perils of painting over someone else's painting... it's hard to notice everything.
I suppose I wanted it connected so that it looks more like she just found the valley after walking through the mountains or whatever...
Oops.



Light is always the most important thing in a painting. Always pay attention to the light.


:heart:


Peace.

If you'd like, to satisfy that urge to do spontaneous critiques we've got a community of pony artists over on reddit: [link] that would be happy to have you for whatever random time you choose.

Spot on tutorial.
