Hi carrieannbrown! Thanks for sharing your image. I like the direction of your illustration, trying to achieve a dynamic narrative. Respecting your request here are some elements worth looking. First is considering in looking at the anatomy of the legs. You made them considerablly thinner compared to the upper body and the arms which are more well toned. Legs from a design point of view have to have certain level of rubustness to support the rest of the weight of the upper body to attain stability abnd balance, and especially the feet you gave your character are very small, How will your character walk? I think that the neck and the position of the head. While I comprehend you want create the notion that the head is looking up but you made you made the neck very bendy, thin and long like a giraffe. Maybe that could be ressolved by bring the head closer to the body and the neck thicker. These are just suggestions from what I understand. I liike your colour palette. Hope that this helped. Best of luck.

RE: Portrait help! Why is this so bad?
Original concept of ideas
I was influenced very much by your discussion of exploring concepts and narrative in your 1s December 2020 Podcast "Making Great Art". Recently having decided to explore caricature, I wanted to explore the idea of a protagonist acting out of character. What are your thoughts on this? You made very powerful points about characters require action to demonstrate their character. I like Will´s idea of exploring the character responding when things go wrong. How do you consider this image holding up in terms of character concept?
