Started this as an entry for the challenge over at cgtalk,but scheduling of other work knocked me off-schedule, so now it's a personal piece. I'm a little worried about the anatomy of the puppeteer's leg, so I may lower it or scrap the leg entirely, not sure yet. I plan to have the strings wrapping around the puppeteer, and having the leg out like that would make them more obvious.
Just looking for a little CC as to any trouble areas I've missed on the marionette, and maybe on the anatomy on the figures.
The lady's right eye is too far away, and her chest is kind of flat. The lighting on the dress is rather confusing, hard to tell the lighitng souce there. The puppet master on the side is nicely draw, although more details and contrast would be better.
stage lighting is a wonderful opportunity for dramtic shadows and pumped up color!
dont be timid.
just a thought:
