@evilrobot Took your advice and added a foreground of sorts. The plan for the three picture frames in the back will be some other octopus themed pieces I did. I will put them in there. I just love tentacles!!
@djlambson Nice! It's been a while since I have been there, but I have also been to Fort St John as well. When I was a kid, I think that I visited every city in B.C., as we always did a lot of road trips. I do miss the mountains and the coast now that we're in Alberta. There is nothing quite like a B.C. forest!
@sean-p-guzman Thanks Sean, good suggestions I appreciate you all taking the time to reply. I also like Jason's example of the small cloud. I'll post up the final when I have incorporated those changes. I agree with everyone's suggestions. Just need to get those clouds feeling right.
Wow, thank you for the input! I think I'm getting somewhere now. I started this in November and I've been stuck fussing with it off and on. Probably should have given more about the character. Funny thing is @smceccarelli she's actually undead, but the eyes were bothering me and you figured it out. She was kidnapped as a child by a cannibalistic lord but escaped and now she's on a mission to kill him. Her entire storyline is sad and nothing ends well for her.
Gonna keep working on it. Does the side that's farther away seem right? I flipped the canvas and nothing is jumping out...
Well, I don't know about procreate, but in a program like Photoshop you can adjust the opacity or flow, and how much texture is coming through on the brush. If you feel the canvas texture is too similar across the entire picture, you could adjust it to have more in certain areas than others.
@Lee-White Loving the Dream portfolio class. I've been at this since SVS started but, you know sometimes life gets in the way. I've had to take a few breaks from illustrating. I'm back in full force now and starting with your class. The first image is my Fav. artist. Charles Santoso, Renata Liwska, Corey Godbey, Gris Grimly, Brian Ajhar are my favorite's of all but I love everyone on my list. They all have that sketch quality to their work. You can almost see how they started and finished at the same time.
The second image is my work. I need to work on my values and bringing more life to my images. I would really like to start focusing more on color. I have zero painting skills so I'm not sure if I should go digital or traditional with adding color. I'm leaning toward traditional. Next is a master study but I like them all so much it's hard to choose.
Hi, I like the drawing in the sense that you have nice line work and shapes but from a composition standpoint I'm not sure what the story is because the girl seems to just be standing there looking into the sky. Is the monster dangerous? If yes then the sheep would be very noisy and active and that would make the girl take notice. Right now it looks like they are waiting for something to happen but I would consider drawing the moment when something is happening
Orgosmhurs are strange beings that resides on the peaks of the Sea if Cains many hills. Each hill a grave to some ancient king or warrior of valor might now be more than a place for ghouls and ghasts, but a home to this wanderers from the different plane, sitting unmoved upon the hilltop, strange, sweet scented mist surrounding them, as well as a curious sensation of a distant whispering. Despite their grotesque forms, they seem lulled and calm, never harassing the brave adventurers who dare to cross the vast graveyard... That is, until some misbegotten soul raise a weapon against it. It might be true, it might be not, for if anyone indeed tried to attack the otherworldly beings, none claimed it to be so. Perhaps because no one survived such an attempt. Or perhaps no one tried. Yet.
@awall I really like the direction you took the piece! I would like to point out the lighting on the pillows though, I understand there could be some reflective light but shouldn't there also be some light on the top of them? I'm definitely not an expert on lighting, that is just how I think it would be to me.
Keep it up though, it's looking good!
