Kraken + Draw 50 things! All in one?
I would be very happy about some critique of my artwork for both challenges.
Can you recognize 50 things or do i need more?
Is the Octopus the focal point of the picture?
What else can I improve, for example regarding lighting, colors or textures?
I'm happy about every feedback!
Its awesome to see your work in progress as well and share mine with you

This is really great. The attention to detail and use of color are amazing. I hope you don't mind, but I thought what if this piece had a little more punch of color, and brought up the brightness a bit. Also, there is a lot going on in this, what if some areas were blurred out to bring the focal point to the characters interacting. Just a few thoughts. Again, this is really amazing, love it!

@mathewgrubb Since this piece is for the "Draw fifty things challenge" I don't think that blurring out the objects is appropriate

@johanna Looking great. The situation reads well and the greens and reds make the octopus a good focal point. I do second what @mathewgrubb mentioned about making those colors punch a bit more, but I wouldn't just push everything. It might help to add some more light to where the sun is hitting, especially around the van, but only a little bit and also you might try to give those shadows a bit more depth. (i'm not sure if your cast shadow on the sign by the bear's head is correct and there are a few other cast shadows that may need to be fixed to be consistent with the lighting.)
Also as mentioned I wouldn't blur anything due to the nature of the draw 50 things challenge, and it looks good as it is. Most of what I said is just nitpicking as it looks great but could be pushed a little more
Thank you both very much. Yess, i agree, the blurring out could be nice, but then you can´t recognize the things anymore.
Great idea with the colors and some more intense lighting, I will totally improve this!
@johanna Looks great
So i tried to push the light and contrast in this. I'm not sure, is it too much now?
Already postet in in the contest thread but maybe i can repost it if you think it got worse

@johanna-puhl I think it looks great. Not too much at all, IMO...
This one is my pick to win the contest!
