    Prehistoric creatures - critics appreciated!

    Hello there!
    I just finished two bw Photoshop paintings and would like to get some critique before I put them on my website.
    Any improvement suggestions are very welcome! Thanks for watching, folks!

    well i cant really say anything about these because they are very well done, it least in my point of view. it would be cool if you colored versions of them as well^^. i suggest that you spend another 1-2 hours on them and push them a little bit futher! it would be a great learning experience!

    Well at the moment they are the same value from front to back, so maybe you could lighten the values the further back they go to create some depth and distance. This might help in determining their scale too, which is another thing you might want to think about, adding something to help create a sense of their scale, but I'm not sure your aim in this work is, so their scale may be irrelevant. Did this real quick so you can see what I mean.

    Agree with aeceko, I would sharpen the edge at the foreground part too, to enforce that depth impression Currently you used a blurry brush everywhere, that do not help to make some part "pop out"

    * Sketchbook page on CA.org coming soon...

    Have a good and creative day !

    Thank you guys! Thatīs very helpful! I will post new pictures as soon as I have time to work on the dinos.
    In the future I would like to make them coloured, but at the moment I will let them remain in b/w till I have the feeling that they are done.
