I just wanted to give a quick update on my progress. I'm moving forward with this piece for the time being. I spent some time thinking about my character and costuming and spent a few hours last night taking some reference. I'm pretty happy with it. It still looks cut out and needs some color balancing, but I like where it's headed and will start painting into it.
I'd appreciate any feedback or ideas! Going to work on it quite a bit more before class.
I'd also really like to see everyone else's progress. I'm so excited about how this class is going.
I've refined a bit and added more elements back into the painting. I was doing a line drawing overlay in pencils to focus on design when it became clear that there might be some important scale issues with the bores in the background. I shrank the bores and added more while also increasing the size of the character a bit.
Any advice on how to improve the scale and story read? Keeping in mind it needs to read on a small card.
