WIP for a scene from Æsop's Fable "The Owl and The Grasshopper".
Here’s an update to my illustration. @juliepeelart made some great suggestions that I couldn’t pass up so I got rid of the little dog and replaced it with the dog house and tools he used to get floating. I also expanded on the story to show that his target is a comically huge steak cooking on a grill. Thanks again @juliepeelart for your great suggestions!
Hi everyone! So I’m having trouble finishing this piece. Im trying to keep it simple, but I feel as though it’s missing something. Should I add dog houses near the fence? Im not really sure where to go from here so any and all help would be very much appreciated!
Hey all, I posted the start to this painting about a week ago and got a lot of great suggestions from you guys. Here is what I have so far but I must admit I’m not super satisfied with it and am not really sure what isn’t working about it. Again, I need your guys help to lead me in the right direction. Thanks again for any and all help.
I think it depends, ultimately, on what you are going for. Maybe if the overall thickness of the line was minimal then it wouldn't be as noticeable. I think Jake mentions varying the thickness to go along with the way you are planning to light your illustration, which might minimize it even more.
@drawnbyshawn I agree with @jennyeickbush that a few adjustments could really sell the image. I definitely think a nervous expression would help out. Also, maybe have a lot of the already eaten apple cores lying around to show how much he buys in to the superstition. Something along the lines of " if an apple a day keeps the doctor away, what would ten or twenty do"!
