Some feedback on my art

Postby Petzi » 10 months ago

I'm not an artist and I rarely draw, but I made this in MSPaint. I want to add a few things before calling it done, but first I'd like some artist feedback. Are there any things that stand out as not feeling right? Someone told me the lake "looked weird", but I don't know what I can do to improve it. Thanks!

My honest feedback would be try a different program (GIMP is free and has lots of features, if you can learn it), because if you can manage that in MS Paint then you could probably do a lot with a more advanced software. You have a really nice style, and I'm not sure how much of it is from working around limitations, but I'd like to see more!

The lake seems to be using a totally different palette and lighting to everything around it, that's probably why it "looks weird". It's extremely bright in an area which otherwise appears shaded, and draws the eye away from the focus created by the path and the sunlit sea.
BOB is an acronym for BOB is Only BOB etc.

Thanks for your replies, sorry I missed them!

Thanks! I didn't expect it to become so elaborate, so I didn't bother to actually choose a proper program. I do have some experience with graphics programs like GIMP and Inkscape.

Oooh that makes a lot of sense. I was thinking it was the perspective (which also isn't perfect, for sure) but the lighting sounds more reasonable.
