    Red Channel

    New piece I've been working on for a while.

    http://www.flickr.com/photos/airtigh...or/4133377430/

    (Photo of a cardinal by John Benson.)

    I'd like to add a background (so much of my work is objects on white, and I'd like to expand from that), but I love the flatness of the yellow dust. Any suggestions?

    for the background you mean? a junk yard? some sort of arena, a floating city? I love the style of the piece however I am very confused as to whats going on. is this robot thing standing on the bull creatures head? or is the bull getting ready to ram it? perhaps my confusion will inspire you to create an environment that eludes to the event at hand looks great so far tho!

    I think the line work on the bull needs some weight variation.

    As for the background, it feels like this bot belongs in a scrap yard. The dust cloud reminds me of Wall-E.

    The photos don't fit in with the universe you've created. That being said if you'd like to keep the photos, the one you borrowed doesn't match the other quality of the other photos.

    Keep up the good work.

    I'd tried to establish depth with the difference in ink weights, but forgot that the bull's back was a receding plane. It was a dumb mistake.

    (You can find all sorts of things on TV!)

    Thanks very much for the feedback/takin' a look.
