    Anyone Remember This One?

    I last posted this sometime in what, February? the lack of light on my AV's been bothering me, so here's a bit of an update. Any and all advice appreciated.

    Hi
    What medium is this in?
    I don't really have much to crit. What are those lines of lighter color in the background? I'm pretty sure the right top are supposed to be sun coming down but what are the ones all throughout the back?
    The piece is missing a middle ground which is making it lack depth as well.

    this piece is missing alot of things, and I have no idea how to continue. I'm not sure how to sharpen the lines of the drake and leaves. The background is poor - it's from imagination. Those are supposed to be trees in the background. Somewhere in my head I know I should just really draw all over it, but I'm just scared to screw it up or something. I'm a total beginner to photoshop.

    "I'm a total beginner to photoshop."

    I think it'd be a REALLY good reason to re-start. You've got a basic idea, a color scheme, and pretty much a composition (that you probably want to work out a little). I mean... the only thinking you have to do is in the painting, so now you can spend your complete time on that.

    If I've got my brush on too low a hardness setting, my edges come out looking somewhat flocked, if you know what I mean. Give this painting a whirl using a harder brush on the drake and see how that looks to you. On the drake itself, I really like the head and neck, but the splayed hind legs bother me because they don't have the convincing sense of volume that the upper legs do, due to foreshortening in the latter and not in the former. Also, reduce the amount of loose skin on the wing. It seems as if those poor thin muscles would have a devil of a time supporting all that! You can study how birds wings act in various stages of flight too--that'll help decide on the best position for your drake. To me, he looks as if a hard blast of wind just hit him in the chest and he's spreading his wings to slow him down. I'm not expert on birds, but if you wanted him to be taking off from the ivy, you'd need a totally different body and wing posture. Try again and have fun!

    thanks for all the tips. The look I was going for was just kinda hovering/flapping in place.
