Personally I like the first and the third option, but texture in your last one adds a bit more interest so that probably edges it to the top

RE: Can I see your Holidays/Christmas Illustrations? Let's share our work!
It's not Christmas but new years is holdiay-ish right!?!
And for January I'm trying to post a sketch sort of like this every weekday in the same vein as that 100 kids challenge.
RE: Illustration Feedback?
I'd agree with Jonas's comments above on the value not reading real well, the other issues I had was on first glance the hand holding the umbrella appears to have extra fingers, so I would get some reference if needed and redraw that. You've got a lot of good stuff going here though.
RE: Would really appreciate some feedback
@lucy_gow First off I like the concept, and the colors help draw your eye to where it needs to go.
So just 2 simple things that stick out to me, first are the paws of the tiger. I'd say find some reference as they seem to be the weaker part of the drawing here. Also, if they are supposed to be pushed against the glass we could probably see some of the padding on the bottom of the paw
Secondly, the tiger is getting larger as it goes back which makes it look a little fat or just a little strange. Usually you think of tigers being more sleek so I'd taper the back of the tiger as well.
Overall a great start!
RE: Illustration podcasts (besides 3-Point Perspective)
@hannahmccaffery I used to listen to this all the time! I'm a little bummed it seems he's not doing it anymore though.
RE: Poster Illustration—Watercolor + Digital Process
I haven't been on the forums for quite a while but I wanted to login so I could just say this turned out great! Those colors are fantastic and I think that'd be a fund method to try sometime in the future. Thanks for sharing
RE: Looking for constructive criticism on some dinosaurs
I've used copics but not a ton. I would say for the yellow raptor though, it looks like you've used a cool gray for the shadow, but maybe use a a cool light blue or something which could give it a bit more dimension? Just a thought.
