Here's my entry for this month. Hope you like it. So many great entries again! Good luck everyone
Hi all. Been following all the amazing work for a couple of months and couldn’t resist entering the contest with all the ideas this prompt generates! Loving all the different interpretations of this tale (tail?). This is my first ever submission, I'm a bit in awe of all the wonderful work! Still trying to get to grips with watercolour. I was partially inspired by the “Jaws” poster for this one.
Really enjoying all the feast fiascos this month! Here's mine. Happy Halloween!
This was tough! Great fun but definitely had my own journey with it, including a bit of a battle with lighting towards the end. Just have to let go and submit it now, so here’s my entry. So many wonderful covers! I love how different they all are.
Very cute! And I love the little girl with her hair in rollers. I agree with @Lovsey about them sharing a moment, some interaction/eye contact with the mum would really bring them together. If there was a clear connection between them, then I think the way the other woman’s face is hidden behind the newspaper, making her feel separate and anonymous, would accentuate the togetherness of the mum and daughter. I guess you can make her a less prominent character through your use of colour?
@Jeremy-Ross Thank you. Yes, it's incredibly tough! There's so much amazing work each month. Congratulations to you too!
I'm trying to focus on a much lighter, brighter piece this month
@marek-halko oh wow! Thank you! This looks great. Yes I see what you mean about the light and separation - the dark witches definitely read better against the lighter background.
I love your work by the way, and congratulations for winning this month!
@seelliott I've just realised the little pumpkin mice were yours. I really loved this piece! It was one of my favs!
@seelliott Thanks so much for taking the time to give me some feedback.
Yes the whole image seemed a lot darker when I uploaded it as a jpg than it looked in photoshop, and I thought afterwards that I should have taken the time to brighten it up a bit, or at least certain elements! Its a good point about the werewolf, he is a bit lost.
I see what you mean about the witch on the left. My idea was that it was a bit of an 'uh oh' moment for her, but I struggled with her expression. I think you're right about her pose being more energetic and in keeping with the other characters. I'll experiment a bit with that and see how it changes the dynamic.
Hey all! I was in the final 16 yesterday which I was really excited about! But I missed out on a critique as things were moving pretty fast at one point. I would love to get some feedback - I feel like I’m moving forward but slowly and any pointers or advice any of you might have would be hugely welcomed. Thank you!
