    Second color work

    My second completely digitally painted work.
    It was fun but also hard, I used to draw black and white.
    But I've learned a lot with this one.
    I hope to speed up because this took me way too much hours.
    But that's part of the learning stage

    PS5, wacom4 m, standard brushes

    I see some things that could be better but i spend too much time on this one.

    Critiques and comment to help me improve are more then welcome!

    Some things to work on in general...
    1) Anatomy
    2) Perspective
    3) Showing anatomy in perspective
    4) Lighting

    Don't worry about getting faster. Faster comes naturally with experience. It doesn't need to be a goal by itself. Practice good principles regardless of how long it takes.

    Thank you for your time to watch and comment.

    What you do mean exactly with anatomy? proportions or?

    I need to get more perspective int background and creature.

    Lightning...indeed, very hard

    You need to spend some time first thinking about the internal structure of creatures in order to make them credible. Start with the skeleton. What bones does a creature of this type need? How is the skeleton put together? Then the muscles...Same questions need to be asked. Finally the surface anatomy...same thing.

    When planning a new creature, spend time studying real life examples. For example, in this one, you are combining elements from snakes, humanoids, crabs, and alligators. You need to study the elements from those creatures that you are using, trying to understand how and why the natural design works. The more of that you do, the more plausible your hybrid creature will become in the end.

    Thank you.
    Indeed I need to study real life examples and use references more.

    Never did that before as I thought artists didn't.
    Only the latest months I do, when I started to pick up drawing again and watched tutorials and life streams.
    I actually thought that was not done.
