Hi @StudioLooong , yes, when opening in a browser, it looks good. Thank you for the advice, I've looked all over adobe forums, but nowhere found a specific solution. I will try to post there as well.

RE: Is Adobe PDF Viewer Colour Managed?
Me too, losing my mind overhere . For anyone able to help, think I should mention that in Acrobat XI the document colours look right, but with the newest Acrobat (which is kind of logical to use, as the XI was ''cancelled'') they still look dull. So I'm not sure whether that is just the way Acrobat is now, or if I'm doing something wrong.
Is Adobe PDF Viewer Colour Managed?
I'm having a bit of an illustration problem, and couldn't think of a better place to ask for help than here.
I am making a PDF Portfolio in InDesign - only for web viewing, but there is a colour shift between what I see in InDesign and when opening that document in PDF. In PDF, the colours are a bit more ''dull''. I am not sure if I'm doing something wrong, or the Adobe PDF Viewer is just not colour managed.
In InDesign, I am placing JPEG images with an embedded colour profile (RGB), and in InDesign I've chosen an option to ''Preserve Embedded Profiles''.
When I export the document, I tried different options for Colour Conversion -''No Colour Conversion'', ''Convert to Destination''...but nothing seems to work.
- I also looked at the options for Colour Settings in Adobe Bridge
RE: First piece for my new portfolio - would love some feedback/suggestions?
Hi @hannahmccaffery! I think the piece is absolutely amazing. The persepctive is briliant, and adding the stairs in the corner just frames the picture perfectly. As the illustration being too busy, there are a lot of elements indeed, but the simple colour palette and having a clear focal point, make it really easy to read. My eyes are immediately drawn to the boy, then I'm following the ray of light that goes into the room, and start to explore everything that is inside. I really can't find anything wrong the illustration.
RE: Character Practice
@evilrobot All the characters look pretty amazing to me! I have the same problems with drawing faces/full body in perspective, but what I've found extremely helpful (beside reference pictures) is to search for a 3D model close to what I need and then rotate it to understand better the perspective I am going for. This is one on the websites I think is great for that https://sketchfab.com/ . Hope this helps!
RE: How do you decide which style to develop?
@Peter.Jarvis One thing that I noticed is that most of the images you uploaded here seem to be a bit dark in color. I'm not sure if the bright, and more colorful illustrations are more desirable by the publishers, it's just my observation. But the 1st and especially the 5th of the illustrations above seem to be going in that direction. I imagine the 2nd one in this way (without the black outlines), and I believe it could perhaps look much better.
