Ok, I did this for school just now. It's already finished, but I would love for people to tell me what they think. It's my first ever photoshop painting so of course it's only mediocre. But I am actually aspiering to become an actual artist, so c&c everyone c&c!

    Sag? You talking about the breasts? Because they've got silicone in em'.

    I think the painting is pretty good for your first time (better than what I could paint!), but your magazine layout is lacking.

    The use of typography is very boring, I mean you just used on type face. Not that you should use 100 fonts, but you know... bold here and there would make a big difference. The placement of the type is also lacking; the words are either too close to the model or too close to the edge of the page. Text needs to breath.

    But the one thing that stands out to me the most is that huge gap above the Playboy logo where it reads - GIRL MEETS GIRL.

    Yeah, the text isn'r really done properly, I should have probably done it without it at all. Truth is, the text takes a lot more attention than it was supposed to.

    Am I gonna be the first to ask to see the reference?

    ...

    But ya, looks decent enough, though in all seriousness it would be helpful to see the ref, it seems a bit plastic/smooth which is often a result of too much copy, not enough ref. Either way, it was hopefully a good practice for ya, but the result, a lot of it the face, doesn't come off as interesting in an art'ish way. And if care at all about everything around the girl, I would definitely listen to MagicToaster, he seems to really know his shit in that department.

    It's good, but boring. Add some color, add some hue, and add some contrast to the lighting, or add a better background.
