Picasso was a cubist. There's a reason he used those shapes.
Different art has different goals. Abstract water in an otherwise realistic scene just reads as bad water, not as intentional abstraction with a specific goal.
If those women looked like Les Demoiselles d'Avignon, I might be more inclined to agree.

Picasso did a lot of different things based on what pleased him, so do JinnDevil...  Art is but the thing you can feel with your senses and no one has the right to tell you to do something because you're not cubist or whatever...

EDIT : the worst artist are those who waste time talking about art instead of making art IMV

Anyways, art discution beside, I kinda like the whater splash the way it is, but I would change if someone show how it can be better (an edit would help, seriously).


Well, here's the most recently wip. I'm still stuck with how to shade the ground.

Hey Jinn,

One way I've learned to employ 'good' composition is by drawing thumbnails of the scene before any work is done to the main picture. Each thumbnail should vary in perspective, light source, values, etc so that when you have completed 20 or so, you can choose the one that is most fitting. Once you select the best one, draw it out on paper and see if it holds its integrity.

Conceptart.org is a great place to learn about what makes a successful drawing.

Thank you very much, Mush. I'll sure take a look on this site.  ;)

And thanks for the tip too, It seems a clever idea.

Water should reflect the legs a bit.

Since you've detailed the girls entirely as if they were on a perfectly flat and horizontal ground, it's probably too late to add uneven ground or grass.

I starded a grass, but I don't know if it is the best way to do it.

Honestly I feel the background is sort of... off. Not necessarily clashing, just off. I think the cause of this is that each of the women seem to have their own different perspective. The middle one is viewed as if seen from head-on, while the one on the right seems to lie on a plane that faces us a good deal more. The left-most woman's perspective seems to be somewhere between the two. And judging by the progress you've made since you started this piece, fixing this is probably going to be tough.
