city of love. by sugarmints city of love. by sugarmints
It's almost Valentine's Day~ I hope you are all spending it with a special someone. And if not...well there's always ice cream and movies :D 

Paris is known as the city of love and it's a beautiful city, so it's the perfect setting for a couple to spend Valentine's Day. ^^ 

Entered this in this contest:

Again, I'm very blown away by your artwork. I love how you connected Paris, France with a relationship between to lovers. I'm not in love, but just thinking about being on that hill in the sunset with someone to hold my hand is a warm and delightful feeling, and seeing how you brought that into just one frame is amazing. You really know how to bring the emotions into your artwork! In every piece of art I've seen of yours, you make everything feel alive, and I congratulate you on this!
Thank you for a heart thouching piece of artwork.

Really pretty drawing. I like where you were going with this. I have some suggestions to improve the piece, hopefully.

First off: The people look like paper cutouts. They look really flat and depict no depth. In general, it looks really flat. The grass is laid out in a really linear fashion from one end to the other which saps the dimension.

This might just be a personal preference thing, however I think it'd help the composition if you added a gradient overlay kind of layer that darkens the figures. That would further help them "pop" out from the background, and more importantly, the grass that they're standing on. A gradient would help ease the transition from the figures to the grassy hill.

As for the cityscape, it lacks variety and feels artificial as a result. There are a lot of short/small buildings and then a really huge-scale tower. It's the only thing remotely big in the background. Even though I see what seem to be skyscraper, office-building type buildings littered all about. The problem is they're all a square shape, and all about the same scale.

What's strange is that the buildings in the front row are smaller than the ones in the background. This reverse-perspective is really odd, and it makes it seem like they're shadows being cast upon a wall, which is an interesting effect, but I don't think that's what you were going for.

I really like the colors in this piece. They're basic colors, but that's the kind of color transition you might like to see in a sky. I like the romantic feeling of the figures. It's like a scene from a movie. The thumbnail most importantly looks good, too. It caught my eye, and here I am.

So in a nutshell:
Things to work on: Less uniform, more contrast, better sense of depth, improving the composition.
Things I liked: The color temperature, the idea, elements used in the composition.

Omg the view of the city from the top and the Eiffel tower, along with the lovely sunset is deeply sensational! The content is really heart warming and sweet, the whole picture of this makes you happy, giving this deep inner feelings of happiness, joy, and calm. The colours that you have use are just so harmonic. The lines and figures are amazing and the clouds are so realistic. Well done! This should receive attention by an expert!
