Critiques would be really loved!!
Only took 7 hours! It's nice when a picture goes quickly, but it makes me worry I'm doing something wrong.....

Pencil sketch from observation while I was in Hawaii + PS colors from imagination (and obligatory animu kid added in)

Oh wow the colors are gorgeous! The only thing I can think of to critique in this is that the lightest tone isn't very light. I suppose you could add in some lighter parts to push the contrast. 
But really it looks amazing.

subtly reminds me of the Lilo and Stitch coloring style of Chris Sanders (but not so vibrant or stylized). It feels in a way more antique, like vintage Pan Am ads.
So here's a challenge. looking at old Pan Am travel posters and Lilo and Stitch watercolor "art of" work, make a "poster" that combines evoking the antique feel but of an exotic and unexpected subject, like, I don't know, Pele the goddess of volcanos reaching up to snatch a Pan Am clipper plane before it leaves the page, or some Tiki- exotica jungle girl surrounded by tiki warriors but at first it looks like a beach scene at night, or how the whole beach cliff and waterfall actually resembles a woman lounging on the beach looking at the plane.
All your work is very complex, scenic, perspective and compositional- show me what or who lives in that setting using those beautiful strengths!

I really love your use of colour!
The only thing I would suggest would be to sharply define the things that you want the viewer to focus on more? I like the sketchy quality but I think it would be nice if you could emphasis points of interest using that method?
Keep up the great work. 8D

Oh good idea, I'll try that. thanks for the help!

this is really nice! just a suggestion as you said critiques would be good.. i thought that maybe you could put more detail near the girl, and blur it away the further away you get from the girl, if that makes sense?

also maybe make the shadowed area towards the front more shadowy.. not darker, but less colour? - more dull? if this makes sense...

love the piece though! your work is really inspiring :)
Reluin Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2013
Oh thank you for the help, that's a good thought, I do need more soft edges here (: I understand what you mean for the shadowed area, I'll try it out!

As always, it's a really great work we have here!!! i think the thing i like the most in your paintings are the colours *__* the way they interact together, the ambicance they create, i just love it!! some parts of this one make me think about the impressionism !!! i've probably already asked, but, did you studied art in a school or by yourself?
Reluin Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2013
Colors are always what I struggle with the most, thanks very much ;v; This was a really bright place and I didn't think photo-realistic colors suited it, so it's kind of a silly color scheme. Impressionism is such an amazing style, I really want to do some pieces inspired by it! Thanks so much.
Nope it's self-study, I wish I had a chance to study art in school! (I have art classes, but it's not a class like I'm being taught, but that I have a place to sit where I can work on my projects like I do at home.) Hopefully I get into a good art school though and I can go next year.
