Here is another update. I have to finish this by tonight, but I am not satisfied with the colors and lightning. I do not know what the heck to do about it, any advice are much welcome!
You are welcome! And thanks for your input on the screens
Your image has really improved. With regards to the hole painting thing, I think we have the same problem, I need to work on that as well. One of the things that has helped me is realising that, in the beginning, it just takes a sh*tload of time, no matter how you cut it. Get into the habit of painting on a new layer above everything else, while this gives you certain limitations and, at times, complicates things, it gives you the possibility of hiding the layer once in a while to see the improvements. Personally this motivates me quite a bit, and helps me to push on. I do not know if it is completely useless advice, I hope not!
Sad to see you miss out!
Interesting design, it kind of reminds me of a jellyfish or something. Does it have something sticking out of its eyes?
That is a nice end result! I am curious to see if you find anything to improve
Is it me, or is there something funny going on around the outline of the rock in the background? I know it is not the main focus, but I just noticed.
Too bad about the background, but time sure is a b*tch sometimes
I like improvements and the saliva detail, it gives it character!
Great idea with the full composition
I hope you have time to finish it, you are off to a great start!
Thanks for you input on the screen contrasts! You are/were absolutely right about the separation, I still have a way to go! I just find it hard to make the design stand out, and at the same time blending the creature into the background in order for it to look natural. I want it to sit in the image, like it belongs in the environment.
It definitely looks better! I do not think it would hurt to seem out evenmore. And I think it could be a good idea to get rid of some of the flat grey parts on in background, instead beginning to add some value variation and atmosphere
Thanks for your input regarding the screen resolutions, I appreciate it
I know about the mouth thing, and I realize my current pose does not illustrate is very well. The mouth is in there, one of my earlier sketches shows it, but I should think of someway to tell it with this version. I do not know if I have the time for it though, but thank you for the input
Thanks for the input! I would really love to purchase one of those, unfortunately I do not have the the budget for it. Maybe some day, I will definitely keep it in mind
Ahh, now you design is showing through. I like how it looks kinda of cute, it is not like the other designs in this thread. I do not know what you have planned for the groundplane, but no matter what, I think a dropped shadow would greatly improve the readability of the image. I am looking forward to see your finished result
