@MichaelaH and @KajsaH Thank /you/ for stopping in to check out the work. Since you guys are watching my process, I'll try to explain a little more about the decisions I'm making
Benny's (the boy) arm was proportionately wrong, I shortened his limbs a little more because these characters aren't exactly..normal human proportions, and his arms ARE short, but his legs were crazy long compared to his arms so...I'm still working on him honestly.
Simplified the wave because I didn't like how distracting all the white foam was. And because we're seeing it at a distance, better to make it simple and clear as possible.
Still working on Mr. Pirate in the background. Taking colors from the cave walls and putting them into the characters so that the characters blend in.
Darkened the value where the sand meets the cave walls because I felt the contrast of the light sand/dark rocks created too much contrast and drew your eye to an unimportant spot in the image. Hoping to get a lot more work done on this tonight.
