brown leaf
[Image: i03u.jpg]

Done around October 2013 with tempera paint.
This was an assignment I had to do for school -- a magnification. I snatched some ye olde leaf off the internet and painted it at that point.

I do not like this artwork. It feels like it could be done much better -- and it could. I was running out of time so I rush with the shadows, and that's why I believe it's the primary reason why it looks like garbage. I also did not get the chance to add more detail, which it righteously needed. Because of that, it doesn't feel realistic almost at all due to its absence.
The most of what I like from this painting are the roots, which I still feel it could be done a bit better (kind of going back to the detail complaint). If I did some very thin black line across the roots, it would look much more realistic.
Nice!
Thank you.
In school, I am now painting on canvas of a self-portrait with acrylic paint. I don't know if I'll be able to get it up on view for the internet, but we'll see in the future.
That is really good, keen to see more Smile
Here's my fan-art to one of the Lucio Fulci's most beloved horror films.

Here's my other painting that is kinda more personal to me.

I get what you're going for, but this type of art just looks so trite..
If you get more original ideas it would definitely be better.
That's just my opinion though Big Grin

Can you at least show me what you did better? i do not see the point in trying unless if doing it unconsciously.

I never painted so I never did anything better.. I admire people who do though! Just keep trying and you will strike gold one day
