@BichonBistro Nice, I'll have to check out Affinity, glad there is a stabilizer on there. Only started using stabilizers recently and wish I knew about them long ago. Never used procreate, but I don't have an ipad. I drool over the timelapse feature it has, I really wish other programs had that..
They are still being finicky about the logo? Any updates you would like to share?
I'm done with this one an moving on. I am happy with the second one. I know there is not that much of a difference, but I like it more.
Time to do the next page. This one is going into my portfolio.
So from the Dino I shared in June Virtual Tour - I made my Dino a bit more boxy to work on cleaning up my edges and then prior to @Braden-Hallett telling me how he uses the colourise layer in Corel I gave a stab at it. I did note that greyer greens didn't show up.
Any suggestions on how to improve him or work more on this style -I am playing around with more shapes/forms created by colour and value over line and then adding line as description rather than defining form like I have done a little with Godzilla.
I am really happy how far he's come lols.
I agree with @theprairiefox also because your characters right in the middle. I’d also suggest moving the kids left leg more on the angle down towards your second character and also relate towards us so that the kids leg might collide with the second character and not over and beyond. But I like the idea of Godzilla character cowering in the corner, lols.
@MichaelaH You're right - I didn't notice her legs were so long. She'd be very tall if she stood up from that log, haha.
I have her legs dangling over the log now, so the feet no longer touch the ground. I think I will have to explore the gesture some more, if this is still not working.
@Nathalie-Kranich The change feels much better! Night scenes are challenging but I've heard Will and others say that the values don't have to be very dark even for a night scene. One thing that might help is to lighten the wall behind your character because there would be some light that gets there from the lamp as the character isn't completely blocking it. That might also help the silhouette pop.
So I have these edited ones. I am going with the more purple one because it is warmer/lighter and I wanted yellow and purple (complementary colours -I rarely use).
Thank you for everyone who assisted my blunder through colour -both Corel E5 and PCS6 helped me.
