Here’s a project I’m currently working on that I’d love to have some feedback for. Anything would be good, but since this is still pretty rough I’m especially looking for advice on composition and colors/hues/values/whathaveyou. It is supposed to be a “red” theme, so any advice on how to make it seem more red while still keeping the coloring realistic would be nice as well! Also I really suck at rocks and ground, so I guess advice on that? I don’t know, I need it all. :P
Thank you very much.
I’ll give you some advice on the composition here. Since that’s the biggest issue here.
One thing that should always be considered is the well known “Rule of 3rds” which I’ve mentioned in previous critiques. The rule of 3rds isn’t that complicated, it’s a lot about where you place the “focus points” in a painting. Focus points is basically what you want the viewers eye to first look at. Therefore you should avoid placing key objects and focus points in the centre of an image, since we want our eyes to wander around the painting.
This is my so called “redlining” or paint-over of your submission.
One thing to remember is that there’s a reason why canvas dimensions are called either “landscape” or “portrait” - pictures that shows a lot of environmental elements work best on a canvas with more width than height. On your version, you picked a “portrait” dimension of the canvas, which makes the environment feel cramped up and too tight.
A sunset/sunrise is a typically serene scenario, using a wider canvas helps you increase this feeling.
Now also note that I placed the bunnies on the area where the red lines meet, as well as the sun on the opposite cross. Whenever you have an image with two objects looking/facing each other it’s always good to use this “diagonal” placement after the rule of 3rds. it’s classic and always work.
I decided to not go too much in to the rest of the picture, because I think that just by fixing the composition you have already improved the picture a lot.
I hope this was of any help. :)
