The image below includes all the final sketches I plan to color for my illustration portfolio. But, before I start, I would appreciate any comments or suggestions on any of the number illustrations. I don't expect everyone to inspect every numbered image, but if something stands out, let me know. The image is fairly big as I did not want to upload 14 individual images here. If you click on it, you should be able to view the larger image. Thank you in advance!
Hi Tom. This is looking so great and you have a solid collection of sketches to work from. It's pretty cool that you are doing a whole bunch of them before you start painting. Seems like a pretty good way to work.
I'd say if you took them to finish as is, they would all be great. I do have a suggestion on where I feel you could improve as a whole- and that is with exaggerating your gestures a bit. This is perhaps a personal preference, but I think you could nudge your gestures a tad more to really illustrate the feeling of each character.
I've manipulated your images to hopefully illustrate what I'm talking about. I mainly used liquify, so they may look a bit distorted.
Thanks for sharing these, and I'm very excited to see these come together as finished pieces.
@tombarrettillo these are fantastic I love the emotion you can convey- nice job!
Thanks, @TessW. I appreciate the tips on the poses!
These are great. I especially like the elephant in different poses. I also like the different POV's in 10 with the two different chicken coop images. Look forward to seeing in color.
