@TaniaGomesArt LOL yes! I think we need to write to someone to complain! I might create the character in this style, even though tht was for the prompt. I need to explore this style more. Thank you for your encouragement 🙂
Thanks for the comments! I ended up throwing in one more goblin and darkening the ones in the foreground a bit as well as adding some additional highlights to the otters to bring some more focus to them. If anything else really sticks out or could use some improvement please let me know!
@Morten-Christiansen Ah yeah, good point... I'm wondering if because I'm using mostly markers (not-so-fine nib/chisel tip) it might force me to keep the details at a minimum as I keep going... I'll keep it in mind though, thank you for the heads up re: your experience 🙂
@Melissa-Bailey-0 Thank you so much for the help! Such good feedback and gives me lots to think about! I was trying to build tension with the expression; like the elf is going to fight to protect but I don't think I have pushed that story enough in the sketch. I have some work to do 😉
I worry that the details of the drawing will get lost a bit. Just tried copying it into the competition template and it is just so small 😖 I think that the textured look might work against me at that scale.
