APRIL PROMPT "THE MOMENT BEFORE"

@Amber-Lynn-Benton . Yes! That is my image. I thought the cymbals were obvious, but now I can see they were not. They definitely need more detail but since I wanted to keep the room dark, I lost a lot of information.
Something to think about in the future.

@Lee-White Thank you for the feedback! I am glad you liked my image
@burvantill After listening to the AWESOME SAUCE critique yesterday I have applied most of @Lee-White 's recommendations. I have removed/lightened the pencil lines in the mountains, increased contrast throughout and changed the colors of the boys clothes in the back. The reason they were all the same is because they are boy scouts in their type B uniform, but the masses don't know about that so, since this is not a BSA illustration it is wise to have their outfits be dissimilar. I did not move the "boy on the hat" because I would have had to repaint it, but I will keep that type of juxtaposition in mind moving forward.
Before & After

@burvantill Great changes! I got the scout references since I wash about a dozen class B shirts every week, lol!
Right! We are out of scouts now, but ah the memories!

@Lee-White - I didn't submit to the April contest but greatly appreciate the feedback you provided the other artists, as it really helped me develop a criteria for my own work. I always appreciate the extra time you take to mentor, thank you!
@djly thanks! it's always my pleasure to see the work you guys do!

@Lee-White sorry i might have missed it. Was there a winner for the “Moment Before” prompt? Or because our gift was the great collection of critiques it was decided that there will be no winner announcements for that month?

I just saw this post today about your video critiques of all of the submissions.
I was captivated by your suggestions to each image and watched the whole thing through.
Thank you very much on the critique, I do use traditional mediums as this point and I am investigating digital formats to bring my work to the next level and hopefully increase interest in my work for children's illustration.
