  • this is truly amazing! to be able to pick something up that quickly, even as chalenging as painting... my really only comment is maybe for you to adjust the rocks arround the base of the house (the yellow and brown ones) they seem alot brighter than everthing else. but over all really awesome job!

  • It is very well done. If the fish is going to be that close, add a little shading to it in some areas. You did good by making the water in the background darker. It flows nicely overall though. Great job.

  • I think that the fish isn't really incorrect it just appears that the head is closer than the bottom of the body. which isn't incorrect it just comes off as a bit strange to some. I think you are leaps and bounds ahead of most starting painters If your going for super realist photo like paintings you need work but If this is the style you prefer then you are well on your way.

    The only problem I have is that the koi doesn't look like it's jumping close to the viewer - it looks like there is a ginormous monster fish jumping out of the water. So, depth is wacky, but I have no idea how to fix it. D:
