dsg: Thank you! Yeah I thought about something like that, but I'll save it if I'll make another similar picture. DanielC: Yeah, it is. And thanks! Dan Valkar: Thanks! And second best isn't that shabby. joaKimArt: Haha, tack. Kul att du gillar dem.
An update of the winter festival. This is actually a themed picture where you have to fit in a couple of elements in the picture, like a dragon, a robot and a couple of raccoons.
Aw, now I have to stop recognizing you as the strawberry fish. I suppose it is good to stay fresh, though. I really oughtta get an avatar of my own going soon. Your new one has me only capable of thinking 'orly?', due to my perception suffering from Internet Owl Syndrome.
Man does that final Skull Collector look awesome. Like the guy before said, the texture's great, and you really bumped that aspect up between that other and the final. I really need to start learning to paint with texture in mind.
Your grandfather was a wise man. Or hypothetically would have been.
I tried to glean some things from your style in my recent WIP, blocking things out instead of sketching, refining from general to specific and trying to use my brush strokes to textural advantage. Thanks for the inspiration, eh. :D The stuff goin' on with the Ganesha's exciting. Incidentally, what's the brush like that you're primarily using, just out of curiosity?
I like it a lot, but I think maybe its missing something more in the foreground? maybe another character closer to the viewer, like racoons pokin out looking at them or watching the firework or something.'
edit: maybe on the left there, because theres an empty gap sort of

Doodles they may be but they've got real character. I like them a lot. Your creatures are excellent - putting in all those highlights was definitely worth the time it must have took! Mr Delicious makes an interesting point - another silhouette in the foreground could look good as long as it doesn't take away from the main action. I look forward to seeing the final piece - not long to go now from the looks of things
