Tranquility by DjamilaKnopf Tranquility by DjamilaKnopf
I started this piece in December and finally got around to finishing it today. Originally, I was going for a kind of postapocalyptic doomsday feel. But it finally turned out to be a calm scene, as if the two characters are waiting for something to happen. Whatever that might be is up to interpretation.

There are some things that bother me but overall I'm pleased with how it turned out. I hope you guys like it! :la:

These two really remind of Vin and Elend for some reason, I love it. The shading and the way you rendered the clouds, fantastic work!!

This pic is great. It has the comic book feel, of course but without a hint of Marvel or manga!

This turned out awesome, great job! Is this a book cover or just a random scene? It definitely got a book cover feel!

I love the feeling I get from this-- like a calm, almost solemn moment before something big. The colors are fantastic, and the perspective for both the characters is amazing. I love it. Beautiful work!

Thanks! I'm curious what you mean by "not right". I'm trying to improve my compositions right now so any concrete feedback and advice helps. :)

Hi, there are a lot of different compositions types and a lot of composition rules, but the main mistakes that I can see - the position of the main characters. It'll be better not to "cut out" the legs of the woman and make the center of the composition, for now you have two centers - two faces, that look in different directions, that's why there is no attention to the main idea. This is my little advice to you to make composition more with general rules - it'll help you have attention when you need it.
