Nice! With the defined shape of the shadow, it's clear that they are all looking up at a huge bird. Is that a lake on the left, or more shadow? I probably can't tell just because it's a WIP and no color, so please excuse my idiocy

RE: Frustrated about colors
@carriecopa, thanks for those tips! Good idea about warm focal point, cool colors in the scene, and also the limited palette. Too many color choices may be a problem for me. I tried a color layer over everything yesterday, but probably chose the wrong color because it just looked dull. I have to keep trying, and hope I'm learning something from the effort!
@Braden-Hallett , I'm so glad I'm not alone LOL! I'm def going to try Chip's tip about movie screenshots, and then pick colors from the image. Maybe find a good one with limited colors like Carrie suggested.
Frustrated about colors
I'm about ready to yell "uncle!" with my BIG image. I just cannot seem to pick good colors to use. They seem to be too garish like bad clown makeup, or too dull, or the values are too close, or the colors look ugly next to each other....ug! It shouldn't be this hard.
I started reviewing some SVS videos on color, so maybe that will help with my mental block. But any further advice, tips, youtube videos, websites, anything at all would be appreciated. I really want to get past this problem and have an entry for January's prompt. Thank you!
RE: BIG WIP - Feedback please
Here's my thought, FWIW. I like what you've got so far, but I'm not seeing the bear as scary at all. If this is the first look at the bear, he looks rather curious and friendly. In comp #1, with the bear's mouth open, he can look much more scary and more easily lead to the confusion about if he's nice or scary. If you prefer the comp you've already got some time invest in (understandable!) maybe give him a scowl?
RE: BIG idea
@nyrrylcadiz Thank you! I loved Clifford when I was a kid.
@inkandspatter , thanks, mine do that too. I'll have one in my lap and another will try to squeeze in. Husband call her a weasel, trying to weasel in on the attention.
@LauraA , thank you so much!
@evilrobot , mine too! Well, one anyway. The second one is a bit smaller. I love that they want to sit with me!
RE: Best website building services and best platforms to be on
We use Wix where I work. Super easy, just drag & drop elements Nobody here wants to work on code, so we are fine with whatever limitations there are, which we haven't really run into anyway. We've been able to do pretty much what we wanted with our website.
Personally, I don't want to work on code either, so whenever I get up to having a website, I plan to use Wix. I've tried the Wordpress route in the past, but it was just too time consuming for me, too much fiddling around trying to customize the templates.
