    Thanks for any feedback

  • I think this flows really well. I like that I'm looking down on the horse, but up at the pig. Your composition seems very strong to me. At first, I thought that what is in the wagon was a tree; upon reconsidering I'm thinking they are sunflowers? I'm sure with color this would be more clear. Also, I have horses and so when I see one there are little things that stand out to me. With his ears down, he looks more like a donkey, is this what you want? I would add in his tail, too. I think you would see part of it hanging, or swooshing, behind his back right leg and even a bit of a bump on his rump. Love the detail of the straw in the pigs mouth and his hat and belt...nicely personified. I like this drawing! I'm a little biased as I love all farm things 🙂

  • I really like this drawing! The composition sits nicely to me and I like the annoyed characters, plus doing this in color seems really fun. I just had a little problem with the wagon. It felt a little off to me and I hope you don't mind I drew on it. I like the idea of bringing it down just a tad, but if you want to keep the extreme angle the back of the wagon goes too wide. Hope that helps 🙂


  • @bharrris I don't mind at all. I guess I'm thinking too much about the weight. But the shifts looks great. Now to finalize and color.. I get terrified of this stage since is very difficult for me.
    @Carrie thanks for the vote of confidence. I was going for a donkey I knew that adding more detail will help the viewer, thanks for the tips.

    Pretty nice. The position of the wagon makes me feel that the animal (horse?) is not applying enough force. I think his gesture must be more expressive.

  • The composition sounds great! 🙂 I felt very immersed in your illustration. Maybe you could use transform tool to make the horse´s back leg a little smaller, So we can see more the perspective in it.
    Also, I think @sergio is right about the effort the horse´s putting on it.
    It´s getting pretty good. Keep going!!

    I really like this composition, and your characters are really fun. I think this is a really fun piece in the making! The horse/donkey's back leg seemed a little off to me though, so I sketched in what seems to me a bit better. Its a hard angle and I'm no expert, so feel free to take this or leave it. 🙂
