I would like some feedback for my recent SFM images.

So I'm still pretty new to Source Filmmaker (as of now I've logged 12 hours?).  Here's the two images I've done, if you're willing to take a look!

Any and all constructive feedback would be greatly appreciated, since I'm just starting out.

Good, average, generic, are the first words to pop into my mind.

Thank you for the feedback, I understand they're pretty basic so far. I'm looking into making better poses and more dynamic lighting for the next time.

For just starting these are really good. Simple yet clean. Keep at it!

Pretty slick! I know it's a weird thing to focus on, but I like the framing on these, nice shots.

Thanks for the positive feedback! I'll definitely do my best to keep it up, and do even better :)

Saying they're decent would be an understatement... It has good lighting, resolution/image quality, and I see the use of aperture and focal distance which are all a big thumbs up.

 

IMO, adding particle effects would bring the posters more life and make it look more appealing overall. Maybe also doing post-edits in Photoshop would make it look better 😉

 

Other than that, keep up the good work!

They're great considering you're newer, but decent all-around, it probably won't take you long to make some seriously high quality stuff man. (You're doing far better than all the people on r/tf2 that post "my first sfm! :D" and it's a Fullbright image of a couple hatless characters in default/taunt poses)

Thank you again for the comments! The cosmetic choices are just people I find in public servers that caught my attention because they were fun to play with, haha!

 

I'll try to play with particle effects more, and possibly more Photoshop editing (I really just painted over major clipping and drew some rimlights+increased the vibrance.)

Tried to go for something a bit more dynamic; I'm not 100% sure but I liked working on it. (15 hours in SFM now! Wow!)

Friend asked me for some renders for his upcoming RoA workshop submission, so I tried painting over a bit and really paying attention to lighting.

Thank you for the input! There was a rejected win-screen render that maybe I'll clean up at some point and post here too!
