Imo needed a bit more work on shadows on walls. Still looks cool.
Francoyovich's avatar
Thank you.
Do you have anything specific in mind when you say the shadows on the wall need more work?
Joe-4-Kerr's avatar
Yes. You didn't draw shadows from frames near portal. I mean those ) shaped things. Also you don't concider light from a portal on opposite wall on bars.
Left portal's position is a bit higher and overall perspective is skewed a bit.


Here I marked all I think is wrong.

Hope you find my comments useful.

Really usefull indeed!
I think you have marked your point quite well, I'll change it as soon as I can.
Thank you!

Also you need to change the color of light inside portals. You see light emmited by orange one inside the blue and blue light on floor inside orange one.
Francoyovich's avatar
Well, I won't change that one. I wanted to create some sort of ambiance using those color masses to make some sort of halo arround the Portal. Technically it's not supposed to be that way, but I like the result better since those colors pop-up more.

I don't agree with absolutely anything that Joe-4-Kerr suggested. I do however suggest he works on his illustrations quite a bit more before critiquing such a masterful artist.

This painting is just weird, but I guess I must read the above-mentioned story to understand. Stunning work, by the way.
Francoyovich's avatar
Well, If you are not familiar with the universe of "Portal", I understand it's not easy to get, I encourage you to play the game though!

Just scanned through it on Wikipedia, so I have enough of an idea what it's about, thanks.
