[WIP] Fantasy Log Hammer (C&C needed!)

(Autumnpioneer) #1

So i'm working on a hand painted hammer made out of a tree trunk, and need some feedback based on the composition of the piece. Most of the painting is almost finished apart from a few small things, but I'd like to know which of these 2 compositions you think is the best. Thanks for your time :slight_smile:

Choose the first one for several reasons:
- as you have a claimed geometrical style, it's better to use strong perpendicular lines in your composition;
- it looks less natural but more dynamic;
- it creates a more readable silhouette.

Otherwise, it's a fresh piece. I like your style :slight_smile:

Thank you for your help! I'll try and see if there's any other possible compositions too as my current vote for the compositions in now even (3 - 3)! Haha

Small update (should be done soon!) I need some thoughts on the background colour and the overall piece, if anyone has time :slight_smile:

The hammer is more readable with a lighter background, so it's good!
However, the composition is not optically centered and it's quite disturbing.
Last point, perhaps rotating the light to create larger shadow with rocks and grass could add a better sens of depth (it's a personal point of view, maybe I'm wrong).
