I remixed my palette, so the orange, though less saturated, is a bit further away from my red now
Thanks everyone for the input! The poll showed overwhelmingly #3 though I kept a spot of the blue.

@Heather-Boyd the tongue would have been fun! Oh well, next time...
I understand the intersecting of the windows. I also needed to pay attention to the snow not filling the whole depth as it would only be on the outside of the pane of glass. I hope that made sense as well...
Color test in Procreate. This may never make it into the contest because I’m going to try to paint it traditionally in watercolor and I never know how that’s going to go but then, “never give up, never surrender!’ We’ll see.
Fairy 66/100 of my 100fairydrawings project. Inspired by the big full moon we had this January. This fairy is practising changing the colours of the firefly's lights.
This is a practise illustration with the digital watercolour brushes.
I wanted to do something different, and then I thought of ski tracks.
When you see the image, what comes to your mind?
Do you think this image works, or it needs some tweaks before I finish it up?
Any comments or feedback are greatly appreciated!
I tried to scribble in the text for fun in this one!
@nadyart I Illustrated my first book through an Irish publisher last year and will possibly be doing a second and third book in the same series. The publisher contacted me and asked me to submit a sample to see if I was the right fit for the project and they liked what they saw I suppose. I must add that it was 14 month after I emailed them my portfolio that I got that response and by that time none of the same images were still in my portfolio. This is why I would suggest getting out there and making contact and even if its a rejection, politely say would they mind seeing new work in 6 month or something to that effect and if possible get feedback.
I think your work is lovely, I would imagine publishers would think the same. It is about you being on their radar when a specific project pops up for them, that they feel would suit you. The first line of the email I received from the publisher was 'We finally have something that might suit you...' I was totally unaware that they were even considering me as I had never got a response after my initial email, only the offer 14 months later.
I had my my January contest WIP here for feedback but since I didn't get a response, I lost my nerve and would rather take it down for now. Deleting the post didn't remove the topic from the forum, so apologies for clicking to nothing.
...besides fixing some of the foreground bike!
But for real, I’m really having a good time with this piece, but I can’t decide if it’s a good idea to bring in colors, if it should be kept really loose, or maybe if I should tighten everything up? Possibilities are endless but I’m curious to see what you all think!
I think removing the bottom right tail left a nice space for the text. I like both images you have shared! My only critique would be that the foxes and the dog look like the same brownish color on my screen so at first it wasn't super clear to me that Will was a dog. But I love the texture of whatever brush you're using. It's looking really wonderful.
I checked out your website. You have great character continuity in your comic. I really enjoyed reading about each character, it sounds like a really interesting cast of characters preteens/teens would enjoy. I think what you may be noticing that's off with Walters face on the sketch you attached is that his eyes are set on his face just a bit high. One thing I did notice on walter on your color version of him is that his freckles are a very high contrast to his skin, I would either darken his skin or lighten the freckles or do the freckles more transparent. Keep up the good work on your comic, and definitely share here on the forum!
3rd one! I completed this colouring pretty fast since there’s not a lot of detailing here so my brain is making me doubt that It’s still incomplete.
One concern I have is that The koala’s face is in the shadow. But is it easy to read that it’s in distress?
