@TessaW Jake’s “how to draw everything” perspective section hurt my brain, but I felt like I learned a lot practicing those shapes in space. The next perspective class is definitely on the list, I just haven’t done perspective in so long. Only one class in college. Thanks for the tip!
@yuriqart That's really cool, but how does this character feel about it in this moment and what personality traits do you want to convey? A shy, happy person will have a different pose in reaction to a magic ring and fire sword, than a confident, weary person, or a silly, scared person, etc.
Personality: If you could pick one word for the personality of this character what would it be?
Emotion: If you could pick one word for how he feels about the sword and ring in the current moment, what would that word be?
@demotlj Thank you Laurie! I’m so glad you are liking the little rabbit. I’ve been experimenting all day and cleaning up edges and lines. I think I will be going with the addition of a lantern next to the little rabbit ...was thinking this was early evening and the lantern could give me a more believable way to add some warm color in and around the rabbits ( the chicken’s comb should get a bit of color too as you have pointed out ) - Thank you for the feedback!
Before I start adding color, does anybody have feedback on the composition and/or value-structure of this piece? Also, does this illustration need an additional element, like maybe a mystical creature in the background? Or is it interesting enough on its own?
@carolinedrawing thank you for sharing your process too Caroline. It seems like I might be the only one who isn’t starting off with a good written process. I sometimes involve the odd word but it’s more ideas generation than keywords, concepts and story. I think writing as a regular thing might be helpful for me too, it’s something I’ve always been weak at.
I’m thinking that the written element explored early on would give the rest of the process a more solid base.
@nadyart Hi Nadya, I kept thinking about this piece in the days after you posted this final version. I'm sure that means I really love it and wish I had created it. This means no feedback is necessary but I wanted to tell you that I kept thinking, what if the bridge is the wolf? The wolf and the bridge echo each other because the log is curved like the wolf's body and the branches of the log look like legs, and what if he is slyly looking back at her as she crosses?
This illustration is part of a book project i've been working on. A wolf keeps sneaking into a little girl's house, and she tries to scare him off by dressing up in different Halloween costumes. Eventually they become friends and it ends with them going trick-or-treating together.
@jdubz I watched a few of the YouTube videos shared up above, and from looking at them, they look kind of similar to water colors (which I'm not a huge fan of.) I think I still lean more towards India Ink, so I will hold off on playing with this particular medium. Besides, I just spent about $250 on Faber Castell pastel colored pencils (I've only done a four pieces with them so far. One I shared here with baby Groot, but also baby Yoda which I really like the results of. I will share attached Love vibrancy! And I probably should invest more time in them before jumping into more mediums LOL
Hi All, this is an illustration I've been working on for a while as part of a book project. I've stared at it so much that it's hard for me to see it with fresh eyes, so I'd be really appreciative of any thoughts or feedback. For example, is it too dark? Is the color scheme working? Are the characters' emotions coming through clearly? Thanks!!
