@kaitlinmakes I thought about the full face, but when I decided to challenge myself I thought it would be easier to do just the half and to use a brush I never used. I also try not to "color" but to actually make strokes and if I mess up I don't undo. I wanted to capture all the aspects of traditional but save tons of money on supplies and do it digital.
I do watch American Horror Story, actual Twisty the clown is on my list of characters to paint.
Feeling kind of ehhhhh about my illustrations lately. Pencil sketches are fun for me and relaxing most of the time. Illustration is hard. Trying to keep my chin up but getting really discouraged. I know it’s that artist brain. We probably all feel it. Anyway, here’s a recent sketch.
Really nice piece. Interesting elements throughout the space. Love how the music leads you through all the little creatures. Great styling of your subjects. Almost makes me not hate alligators and crocodiles, almost. They are terrifying. Great job!
@laura-yong Draw a bounding box around your more complex objects to see it as a basic form. That will help you see how the perspective of the object should be. Also it looks like the majority of your buildings are parallel so that means they should each go to the same v.p but at the moment they dont, some go to the center whereas others go more to the right or left. Use the line tool and extend all the lines you have already drawn to see where there v.p's are and it will help you fix them
@heather-boyd Yes! I love Peter Rabbit and Beatrix Potter! I really appreciate the tips!! I’ve been out of art school for over a year and I really have been missing the crits and other arty minded peeps.
Also, love the suggestion about the tree branch. That would also add some tension to the drawing too!
I agree on the Squirrels hind legs, I redrew them several times and still not happy with them.
Thanks again girl!!
Cool, thanks for sharing! Is it actually a WIP(work in progress) though? It looks like it might be finished?
If it's finished, please post it in the contest thread with everyone else's entries and make sure your name and info are somewhere on the actual image. All the images will eventually be put into a slide show format for review, so you want to make sure your info is on the image itself.

@heather-boyd Ooo I love that advice, Heather! I'm wondering if "uncertain" it's a little different than what I'm trying to achieve for her though... I'm wanting the female character to appear carefree and in control, and the gentleman behind her to be more menacing (possibly curious? I'm going back and forth on how I want him to end up at this point).
As this has developed, I'm reminded of the story of Muses. Maybe this gentleman has stumbled upon his muse and he's about to take some furious notes? Maybe he intends to capture her. Thus me going back and forth on him, and his just general "crouching" pose haha
Here's another update! I'm going to double check her twisty legs...
Thanks again :)
Thank you All, @chrisaakins, @Whitney-Simms, @Art-of-B, @TianLian, @lmrush, @cam-royce, @djlambson
I appreciate your generous response. I've been crazy busy the last week, but I hope to do more art soon! thank you again --- Cheer's
