Newborn - Waking knock
First and foremost, thank you Roxette for making all those great music I listened to while finishing this off.
Oh goodness. I forgot to level check. hmmmm! [I'll add that to the list also].
*smacks forehead with a banana.
I'm still reading about composition & doing value studies, but, what ever I'm learning in how to make good pictures, I'll be applying here. 1 hr a day, I should at least have 1 finished.
-2 waywards & twin brothers (background)
Enlightenment: Sometimes all it takes is that one little flash, in this case, a pebble.
-For the noobs like me. F1+F2 are binded to horizontal and vertical canvas flip.
-I like to create resizeable composition frames before I copy all layers and paste as a small thumbnail into a secret PSD document.

anyway, the prizes are worth going over your allocated time.
Besides, it's those moments when you really get into a drawing or painting that are so rare that you should go with the flow and keep working.

Ctrl+J for quick duplicate of selections
Ctrl+Shift+C to copy merge all layers
Values. Lasso shape and apply gradient. Is that ok to do?
Colour picks. Uhhhmmmm. I'm reading still up on it still. Advice welcome.
I'm still trying the colour overlay over the grays, but I'll end up covering it all in the end with full opaque colours. [I still find it hard to see the values in the colours. I can't see it still.]
I'm not sure if I should keep that dark apparition behind the boy that doesn't wake up. I love to.
-I'm trying to get the treet to grow out the 'Awakened' boy's head.
-2 paths. Bike path as waves. Walking the simple curve.
(Still thinking about how best to use 'em. I was thinking of using it to split the characters. The directions in which they will leave after this incident.)
-The twins in the back. One nursing his knee, while the older twin throws the pebble. They're a tough one. Facial expressions maybe, but there's got to be more.

I Like how you have several different versions, each one altering something different.
And I still love their expressions

hala: They're quite small, so it's not much work/time to mock up. [Although, I still can't figure out why I did the gradient on the arms as they were, it doesn't even make sense] Anywayyy...
My third step/update as Barron starts his third piece. Ha!
Comments/directions most welcome.

blog post .... funny. teehee.
Does the illustration make sense though? (everyone)
I want to use the sparks, and maybe a few cartoon motion lines, but it feels like cheating.
[I'll do more mirror-acting, but I'm all out, my face muscles are cramped, and I want to age gracefully. No age lines thank you. yeck! ]

Maybe if they were holding an apple each but the one the taller brother holds has a bite out of it
June 28th, 2009 #12
Apple ??? [I'm embarrassed, I don't get the metaphor :redcheeks:]
uhhm, just in case, that's a pacifier falling out the tall one's mouth.
and next to his left ear, is a little pebble thrown by one of the twins from the back hitting tall boys noggin.
oh nooo ... [I might use the motion lines like a Bugs Bunny. I'll work onnit more though.]
Thank you BSpot.

Like in the Garden of Eden, but forget it as I was still on my first cup of coffee then.
