14 juillet by cloudmilk 14 juillet by cloudmilk
French : Défilé du 14 juillet reflété sur un casque Franck 1912. Le timbre du fabricant est une création personnelle.

Anglais : Reflected french national 14th of july parade on a 1912 helmet. The stamps is my own creation from original manufacturer Franck & sons.
For my first competition at least 300 drawers. Whatever the result is and despite few errors, I'm quiet glad the way the global rendering turned out.
Hope you do too.

Edit : corrected perspective on the parade reflection and on the blurred part, thanks to ~xStelmariax constructive critic we always give to eachother. The objective feedback is really important for improving, as you may know that it's quiet hard to be really objective on our own art. It's the state of mind I try to develop with some deviant friends.
I'll upload the final version soon.

Wow. Just wow!
Brilliant work on the refelcting surface, you really captured a very three dimensional feel here. The leaves on it looks so real! :faint: I also have a lot of respect for these tiny men in the refelction, that must have been a lot of work too.

The tiny men were not that hard to draw. Sometimes drawing is illusion ;-)

Très bien fait, je dirais qu'il manque un peu de contrastes, notamment au niveau des noirs qui sont trop clairs.

Une petite question : où trouves-tu les noirs trop clairs? Dans une zone ou plusieurs en particulier, ou bien partout?
Ta réponse me sera précieuse, merci d'avance !

Plutôt pour la crête. Globalement les reflets métalliques ne font pas d'ombres noires dans la réalité comme ils sont très réfléchissants et réfractaires à la lumière. Tandis qu'un enchevêtrement de poils plus à mon avis. Après je n'ai pas le casque sous les yeux, mais à mon avis c'est bien la crête qui a besoin d'être assombrie. Aussi pour faire plus ressortir les poils les uns par rapport aux autres et leur donner du volume.

Merci pour l'avis. La numérisation change un peu les contrastes. Mais ce n'est pas faux, car je me sais timide sur les noirs, toujours peur de faire trop foncé.
Many thanks. :)
