I wanted to do something a bit comical, can you see the part that is not what it seems? Nice relaxing day, but fear might be lurking around.
I messed around and approached this painting using Correction Layers instead of Multiply/Overlay. Definitely different, now I don´t know which I like better, hahaha.
My first impression was... Wow, it's a really beautiful painting! I love the way you colored the foliage. The colors are also vibrant yet not overpowering. Then I read the title and looked again and I thought that was such an interesting concept! I really love the way you portray the crocodile (alligator?) in the darkness. I thought it might be cooler if there was someone on the beach being unaware though haha. One thing that I thought could be improved is the netting of the hammock. It looks a little blurred and unclear, as if you weren't sure how to draw it (I don't blame you at all if that is really the case, these things are difficult). It might look better being as clear as the rest of the picture. Also the rope tied to the tree on the right side of the picture shows a little bit of the tree, which I think you might have overlooked.
Overall I still really love this piece! Please keep it up and I look forward to more works from you. (Gonna give you a watch because I love your work; feel free to watch back xD)
First, off I'll say what I like and oh my god this is gonna be long. I absolutely love how the light and 'safe' beach contrasts with the darker side, how the crocodile is just hidden enough to give the viewer long enough to give comfortable before they notice what's off and how absolutely stunning your lineless, painting-like style looks. Everything is done so, so well from the proportions to the depth and the general theme. I. Love. It. The way you color and shade is probably my personal favorite part of this piece, it's at the perfect spot between realism and softness.
As for what I'm not so fond of, some shapes seem a little too blurry and the crocodile looks more like a decapitated head than an actual living creature, showing a tiny bit more of its body would help fix this problem without making the crocs location too obvious. Oh, and the fact that this doesn't have more faves and comments
This is DEFINITELY going into my faves, 8.8/10
Thanks so much for the support, it´s so nice to read comments like these
