RE: looking for critique
I'm really loving the style and subject of this piece so far, also the values and the technique. I'm having the most difficulty reading which planes the various characters are on. The rhino seems like he's right in front of —maybe stopping—the car, but the straight side view of the car is visually at odds with the slight 3/4 angle of the rhino's head. Anybody else having visual confusion there? Plus, the guy on the bike in the foreground is tangental to the driver's arm which I think might be flattening this out a bit.
RE: March Contest WIP critique welcome
@demotlj Great job so far in your reworking. I'm having trouble judging if the cool green color scheme works better because that foreground bison is soooo dark. How is this piece matching up with the value thumbnails from your planning stage? Also having trouble because the black working lines of the background details are so stark right now in the all-brown version Maybe you'll have an easier time deciding if you temporarily tone down the line drawing a bit? I love your characters' gestures BTW.
