Mushroom Village WIP



  • Updated my sketch based on your feedback, I'm feeling pretty good about it!

    I noticed that giving myself several days to develop a sketch (taking time to walk away for a bit, think about it, get your feedback, and add more details) has been working really well. I'm much happier with my drawings than trying to rush something out in one sitting (like when I feel pressure to create something for social media). It may be slower, but the results are much better.

  • @carriecopa Wow I love seeing the progress of how you improved the piece with everyone's feedback 🙂 It's much clearer to read the image now. Looking forward to this in colour!



  • @carriecopa I think it looks great! I started to sit on my larger pieces as well. Give a day or two and come back. Then on the weekends I will knock a quick one out in a couple hours. I feel it really gets my imagination flowing. Looking forward to how you color it.



  • Hey all, I have color tests and would love your feedback! One is a cool blue look (which makes the red fox stand out more), and one is normal autumn afternoon. I'll be doing more with lighting and line coloring.

  • @carriecopa I prefer the warmer pallet to me the blue is too blue and feels a bit cold



  • @carriecopa I love the warm color scheme more.



  • @sweta-roy-choudhury @rcartwright

    I did the blue one because I wanted something different, that didn't have the traditional red mushroom that often comes to mind. But the feedback here and elsewhere is hands-down the autumn one, so there must be something really working there! Thanks for your input.



  • I prefer the cool blue one.



  • I like both. You've done a really great job. I do think it would be worth it to play with the cool one a bit- maybe warm up the oranges of the fox and foreground character a little and possibly add a few more orangy touches or even a few warmer greens here and there. Not enough to overpower the overall scheme, but just to add some variations.



  • Now the votes coming in are about even lol. That makes it so hard to pick! I do think adding some warmer elements in the blue one will make it more cohesive, and maybe add some light coming out of the mushroom windows. Ugh, I'll probably just end up making both and picking one at random for the contest. Might be a useful portfolio item at least!



  • Another vote for the blue scheme here! Just coz like you mentioned - it’s not the typical kind of colour scheme for this theme. Which makes it more unique. The autumn warm ness is beautiful but more expected/familiar.
