@Chip-Valecek that looks like a Ray Harryhausen style dog.
If you’re still after critical feedback I wondered what would happen if the blue of the saliva was toned back so it was less saturated. Would it make the flame on the tail look brighter? Would the saliva still look wet? Is this the effect you want?
Or is the saliva glowing and giving off its own light? If it is how would this bounce off the mouth and teeth.
Cool pick Chip. Love the concept and the cold blue flame and the glowing eyes. Now I have to try and sleep
@eric-castleman I think adding more illumination from it helps it a bit, but it's more because of the angle and shape of it which is an issue to me. I usually imagine a hand lantern to be more cylindrical, although there are box shape ones which is fine. However, with most lanterns though the light does not come from the base and the lack of seeing him holding the handle could be where I see an issue.
Hi Guys. New one for today. This was done for Inktober too. Can you find the easter egg?
I will paint this as I think it would look great in color. At least it looks great in my mind. Hope I can live up to it
Let me know your thoughts. Thanks,
@djlambson I’ve been working on paying more attention to values in my paintings but now I also have to learn to pay attention the interplay of warm and cool. I’ve heard Will Terry say it enough but hearing it and doing it are clearly two different things!
I wouldn't sweat it too much, these are all great pieces. I especially love the beehive and coffee shop illustration. I could see those being really appealing to the illustration market (beautiful work all round though). GOOD LUCK!!
@djlambson thanks ! I draw every day it's not easy when your are not in art school, i don't have time to finish my robots for the marchofrobots because i work on my animation skill, but i think im going to post one soon !
Thanks for taking a look!
I think actually identifying value is one of those skills I'm still really developing. My brights need to be brighter, and my darks need to be darker (except when they don't, but that's the problem, isn't it? XD)
@TessaW Hi Tessa..you're wonderful to do the work over to show me. I like it, as well as the added wispiness..it heightens the dreamy mood. Thanks so much!..I'll work on it some more with your advice in mind.
