•Zee's Art•

I figured I would get more attention if I made a thread in the "off topic" section. (NO! I'm not an attention whore! How DARE you!)

So, THIS is will I will be posting my wonderful "Works In Progress" (do you feel the sarcasm? So do I. Its great isn't it? <3) up until I finish a piece, and then I will continue posting the works in progress of the next piece and so on and so forth.

It generally takes me, like forever (ok not really) to finish a piece because I'm so busy changing it. But I'll post whenever I've made major progress on something.

Anyway, enjoy my ever changing artsy fartsyness (and constant sarcastic remarks) due to my lovely ADD (I'll change subtle things ALL the time. Prizes will be given to those who notice them. Ok not really. )

All these pieces will go on my new DeviantArt page.

Yay! You all get to look at this pic again! (I know. I'm tired of looking at it too. But its the piece I'm currently working on. )

I made her eyes brighter and added some feathers.

Very nice! I like how the colors of the feathers reflect her eye color.

Thanks very much!

I just realized though, that feathers, are a pain in the a$$ to draw/color without them looking too unrealistic XD

I see, but you did well though. It's gorgeous to see the color pattern, anyone who would be able to find such a great match for her eyes would be insanely attractive in real life

And the lips do that too of cource.

I think your art would benefit from less saturated colors, Zee.
In my opinion, it's all too colorful/bright, I'd use more subtle, paler colors, would make the feathers more realistic for example.

Nevertheless, great stuff.

But I think the saturation is actually a particular style of art, in close harmony with as much or realism as can go with it.

Its supposed to be a little saturated but maybe it is too much?

I agree making the feathers paler would look more realistic, but if that's your style and you don't want your picture to be that realistic, You should keep it the way you like it... besides, we can't really judge by an unfinished screenshot

In my opinion, a piece of art is finished when the artist says so...
And because it is the artist who decides their style, I don't think it is too much of anything, unless I need to compare it to something else.

I guess I can't play the critique there

Is this better? (I'm not sure if I'm feeling that leaf though.)

The feathers certainly look more natural, but the leaf kinda looks out of place

You're truly an ARTIST!
I like the original feathers better... don't know why. Certainly the new ones look more realistic but I still prefer the old ones.

I love the new feathers! The leaf though, I guess it needs some touches to look more on place.

EDIT: Is it normal for me to look at the eyes... constantly? I love the expression of her face ^^

This is awesome! You're really good Zee!
I've got to say though, I prefered the old feathers. The new ones just look too photo-realistic, and that makes them look out of place here, like if they were copy-pasted from a photograph or something like that. Maybe they will integrate better in the finished piece... I don't know what you're planning next...

Do not succumb to pressure zee! lol

Nah really your style is great, I liked the first one more personally. But whatever you choose is fine, cause you get to draw it, and it's the feeling you put to it what matter isn't it?

You own girl!

(I'm still waiting the lba family portrait tho).

The 2nd feathers are much better but, as it was said, the leaf is too out of place so it kinda looks weird.

Also, I'm not sure if its only me, but I think the feathers are a bit too big. It would look much better if you could lower the size, to make it more proportional. Could you try it?
