Truth by DavesPineapple Truth by DavesPineapple
Uh...went for something CRAZY here ^-^

...loving the fact that I'm also improving my editing should see the original scan of this thing...or maybe it's better if you don't...

Whatever, I'm really happy about this ultra-fast painting, done in only 20 minutes, as usual with watercolors an' stuff. The black center is entirely painted with china ink...aaand I probably shouldn't have used a normal brush with that particular kind of ink...but who cares, it was a crappy brush anyway!

...oh by the way there's a rabbit inside the eye if you managed to miss it...derp...

so, yeah, opinions on this piece?

I'm not gonna tell you the meaning of it, mainly because I'm evil, but also because I love reading your comments ^-^

so comment, please, or else I'll keep these cookies for myself!

ok, so......

The greens of the eyes make the deep black of Dave stand out! you've fit the light sparkles on the eye around him so it looks very natural.
there are a lot of images on Da including eyes! But i have never seen one as close up or detailed as this! the close up view make you look around and search the image for more!
The black of the ink is dark and lovely, it looks very smooth and fluent! you did that all with china ink!? woah!
Altogether it is my favourite piece of yours so far! Really good detail and technique with the brush strokes of water-colour and the light that you have edited to look like it is shiny.
i think you should do more of these eye thingies, experiment with different colours and patterns and stuff! :) it leaves a very good effect!
i can't believe this only took you 20mins!! It would have taken me hours! :D
What do you think?

I have not yet looked at any of your other art. This piece caught my attention because, frankly, i have hated with a passion every single picture of one eye that I have seen simply because of this


Yours... I did not hate, it's quite original actually... somehow.. and for that it has my respect.
But as soon as i read the description i quickly fell out of love with it's artist. you should try not to blatantly brag about your own skill with a piece like this. it's creative and well executed but the fact that it took you 20 minutes is really what i would have expected. its a very simple piece. And the reason you shouldn't explain the meaning behind your painting is not because you are evil or want to see what people will guess, it's because the piece should speak for itself or it isn't doing its job.

things i like
-the shadow around the iris, i love the black ink surrounding the edge of the iris, you did a great job of making this feel 3D, it gives it a sort of wildflower look that is really aesthetically pleasing

-the detail within the pupil is really neat, i would not have guessed it was a rabbit but it does have a sort of sinister, animal look to it that brings your attention to the center (a good place for it to be in this piece) and it makes the overall piece more interesting

-Color use. It can be a challenge with watercolor to use the color well when you have the ability to put so much of it into the picture. the fact that you only used greens and blacks shows a practiced amount of control

things i didn't like
- I do not enjoy the fact that this was digitally edited. I dont think it is always a bad thing to mix traditional and digital art but in this case it only made me wonder what you did with a brush and what you did with a few clicks of your mouse. it made the whole piece less impressive to me, knowing that the more challenging parts of painting in this piece might have been done on the computer.

Alright, so, since I absolutely suck at writing critiques (and I mean it :nirvana:) I'll just give a friendly comment! I can see the rabbit's ears in the pupil, which is just out of this world! I also love the way you blended the greens.... and the fact that it only took you 20 minutes! I'm deeply impressed! :wow:
