I am new here and wanted to start things off by submitting for critique a piece which I have struggled with for awhile now. I have a few things that I've figured out to address on my own (it's amazing what you see if you take a break from a piece!) and so far have come up with this list of things to fix:
1. The highlights; too soft, too messy
2. The shadows; needs complementary colors added
3. The environment; figure out a way to make it look like swamp water?
These are things I've come up with on my own, and would appreciate anymore suggestions, as well as advice on how you think I should address these. The basic info about this little guy is that he's amphibious, bio luminescent, and very small (frog sized).
Thanks in advance!
