Sworn Brothers by iancjw Sworn Brothers by iancjw
“We three, though of separate ancestry, join in brotherhood here, combining strength and purpose, to relieve the present crisis.”

- Luo Guan Zhong

Had a lot of fun painting this, though it was a little outside my comfort zone...

The separation between foreground, middle, and background is very nice. The composition is good, and color is solid. The perspective on the table and items on the table seems off- it's as though it's rising into the air as it moves back into the scene, and the items on it should slide off the bottom of the page. I think that's a horizon issue- the table seems to have a different horizon line then the rest of the scene has. The character on the right has anatomy issues with his left shoulder- the arm is awkwardly high up for that position, and start lower and angle upwards. Also, that same character is too large compared to the others. If he were far enough from the other characters to seem that much larger in comparison, his arm wouldn't be long enough to reach the center of the table where their cups meet. Overall it's quite nice. I especially like the detail and color on their clothing. Well done.
What do you think?

If I could bring these three back to life, I'd use them to bring democracy to China!

Great looking work! I might suggest you do not need so much at the bottom, move the jug and pots closer and crop it maybe?
