Color test - Towards the heaven and beyond by IRCSS Color test - Towards the heaven and beyond by IRCSS
I was testing a new color scheme, i spend about 1 hour on it. Constructive comments are very welcome, since I feel like there is something wrong with it but I can't figure out what it is.

I like the range of colors that you used here. I don't really think that there is anything "wrong" with it, but it definitely feels like you could polish it up a bit. Some of the areas look like they could be smoothed out a little bit more, like the birds body, the wings on the girl and the leaves and bark on the tree. Right now they look a little bit rough and scratchy.
Also, I think there are definitely ways to improve the birds feathers. Right now, the line strokes you have give off the appearance of fur or hair, not feathers. If they were thicker or fluffier I think it would help. Or else, if you could find a feather brush or something, I'm not quite sure.
The clouds in the front are very nice, you have a lot of shading and highlights, and the contrast between the dark clouds on the right are nice when put up against the warm yellow clouds on the right. However, the clouds in the back look incomplete when compared to these. There's less shading on them, and some of them are too translucent. Plus the moon/planet in the sky doesn't have enough shading or craters in it for me to distinguish that it wasn't just an oddly shaped cloud.
I hope this helps!

The colours give this piece a very tropical feel. I really like the composition as well, it draws the eye. And since you asked for constructive comments, I think that there's a lack of focus. Perhaps playing around with the saturation of colours could help with that?
Overall, its such a fun piece :)

Very nice! The shading is fantastic, and the colors all blend very well!
However, I do think the picture is just a little crowded. I can't pinpoint a specific part, but I feel that there is just one item too many.
That aside, this is a fantastic painting and you should be proud of it!

Thanks for the comment, I too feel like there is something (actually several things) fundamentally wrong, and I have to spend time on it to fix it, however I don't spend more than one hour on a painting, solely because it gets boring ^^
