It's been awhile since I've posted a piece, but I have been continually working on new stuff and trying to tighten my skills. I wanted to share my latest and by all means, critiques are welcome! I want to improve as much as I can for my next one.
This is a piece of my character, Mr. Bearis. He's a dumpy, good-natured, pie making bear who has heroic visions of himself (think Walter Mitty). I'm working towards a graphic novel on this and am currently writing the manuscript.
Also, I'm attaching my inks and the final illustration. I'm more pleased with the inks, which isn't to say that I'm entirely displeased with the colors, but I took it as far as my current skill and knowledge allows. Thanks for taking the time to have a look!
@lee-white That's absolutely understandable! It's a bit of a passion project so I'll absolutely keep working on designing it but what you said about taking in account all the costs of production, I'll definitely put that on hold until I am able to figure it all out. This was incredibly insightful advice! Thank you!!
I agree with @IanS. the only thing that confused me was the road! However i love the style and the direction of the piece! What could also tie the composition together could be some distant rolling hills in the background on the right side of the piece!
