Here's the finished piece!! From the Julike prompt: a favorite superhero hero as what you wanted to be when you grew up (or something to that effect).
'Wonder Woman's Green Thumb'
@Nyrryl-Cadiz hm. . . I'd thought about portrait, but then I couldn't figure out how to keep his leg fully extended and still in the frame. . . but maybe I'll play around with it a little more. I've been finishing a different piece, so this one's been on the back burner this past week.
@holleywilliamson interesting! I wouldn't have guessed! That sounds hard to convey though. . . it'd be more fun to give some far fetched crazy explanation, like a juggler practicing with flaming objects nearby, or someone/something with fireworks, or maybe the kid really wanted to go camping all along, and he tried to make a campfire on the boat but didn't realize it'd get out of hand. . . hinting at some sort of backstory would really compliment the drama of the moment.
@Aleksey I like the brook, but I see what @MichaelaH is saying with the bridge! It does kinda get dwarfed by the characters. I wonder if changing it to a different kind of bridge would help. Maybe a couple of boards or just a fallen log. Maybe it's the railings that throw it off. OR maybe just adding a smaller animal, like a mouse on the bridge would make it work. But I just love how much is going on in the comp overall! I'm looking forward to seeing it in color!!
K! I haven't had time to work on this till today, but here's the first sketch, added to a little. Also I did a quick thumbnail with his whole head included. I'm finding it tricky to get the lady with the hose far enough away to fit framed between the legs, yet not so far away that it stretches the space out. . .
