    Jungle WIP

    Early this year I sketched a little claustrophobic jungle scene of sorts, and I finally got around to laying down some colours. I'm using this as a practice piece for environment concepts and colour use, because they're both areas that I haven't drawn/painted much before and I think I'm pretty weak in. :/

    At this point I'm just starting to work on adding a bit of detail to the tree trunks, but it's mostly just base colours.

    There's either a bright light reflecting off of the water, or the water is actually glowing somehow, I haven't decided which yet... and I know I'll have to decide before I get more into the details. :3

    What do you all think? I really appreciate any input on this.

    Awesome drawing! You have to decide on where your light is coming from. I think you could try both light set ups and decide which you think is best or post both and see what reaction you'll get.

    Immediately the water itself struck me as being the light source, which is nice. Makes for a very eerie and lovely light setup. As it is the light source seems well defined as being the water, so you could run with that and develop the scene more with more refined light and shadow block-in.

    The light appears to be sufficiently bright to introduce (in small amounts) other colors that could help act as story tellers, let the viewer see something interesting happening in this mystical forest scene.

    This is nice! It's a little narrow, but that's okay. I hope you lose the outlines soon as you paint in detail. Get this to a point where you don't know what to do next, then post it again.

    Thanks guys!

    I will run with the water as it light source. I'll post again as it develops. :3 (I should post an update here, not in a new thread, right?)

    Oh and yes, I will be painting over the outlines.

    Yes, continue posting updates in this thread.

    A note that might help you out a bit.

    I have found it helpful to include the date of my most recent updated image upload in the title of the thread, so that people will automatically know if when they load your thread they will be looking at an update that they can crit, or just looking at old posts within the thread.

    For example
