Some sketches for my November contest entry
I had an idea that I thought would be fun to go with the prompt of STAR. The first image was where my idea started, the other two come from the first with slightly different twists trying to improve it. The idea is the moon spreading stars across the night sky, like blowing dandelion wishes. Does this come across okay and is one better than the other? I know it's super sketchy, but layout of the pictures or potential to be more interesting? PS The ball in the top right corner of the second picture would be the earth...
Edit: Also, I have gotten feedback that the faces look to wide... Do you agree?

@Frogpunzel maybe it's my sleep deprivation talking, but I'm super digging this concept. Personally I have a hard time formulating a composition without laying in the darks and lights. I do think the concept works better when you don't show the moon guy's body. I wouldn't worry about the anatomy specifics in the face at this point, it'll be easier to focus on the composition by itself and worry about the drawing later. But if you lay in some value in your thumbs it will be easier to see the visual balance of your design.

I would definitely agree with @Matthew-Oberdier that some thumbs would help you get the design figured out. Value will be an important component for this one as the moon typically has a very light value vs. the night sky.
