WIP July book cover - feedback on composition
@Griff Thanks for your input!
I tried to get rid of most of the tangents (however it's still a little bit early for me to cover them all... so there are still some left maybe )
@korilynneillo I also tried a variety of different poses for Dorothy... it's so difficult to make her look like she's in a tornado, without the Alice in wonderland feel to it.
But I tried and for now, I'm happy with it, I think.
I've also made the bubbles in the corners smaller, so it's little bit more airy.
Next step: character design!
Sooo, I really do hope I’ll make it till the end of month!
I have my characters ready and drawing for the whole illustration finished.
Tomorrow I’ll be doing colour studies.
And I do have a question for anyone willing to give me their opinion ... in the drawing, I made Dorothy smile, but in the sketch, there’s a hint of more or less surprised/scared look. What do you think would be better for the cover? I want the cover to have a “happy” feel to it, but also with a little bit of an action...

I like the happy face! Her and Toto's pose gives plenty of action, so I think the expression works well if you also want to keep things "happy". Toto is so adorable!

@mag I love your characters! Toto is super adorable I think a happy face would be more inviting and goes well with your style. My only critique is the tangent with Toto's tail and leg--but other than that they look great! I'm excited to see it finished!

Stories are built on conflict. The smile waters down the implied conflict.
@TessaW Thank you! I love little cute animals, so it was great fun drawing him

@mag so cute!
I did it on time!! Sure, there are still a couple of things I want to change, and there will be a plenty of them once I submit the final image... but for now, I'm pretty happy

@mag So beautiful! Love the textures and the colors, I keep noticing new layers as I look at it. That little dog's face is just so precious.
