    Adding Story

    Hi there, this is a piece I'm currently working. Hopefully I've got most of the anatomy right. Anyway, right now I'm focusing on adding story to this piece, I've got a few ideas in my head such as adding people and cars at the back, but I was wondering if you guys have any other ideas that I should add? Thanks!

    I like this a lot, although the perspective worries me slightly, and the background trees look sloppy. Instead of adding a story afterward, I suggest you work out a series of thumbnails to nail the composition before you start...

    Generally, you should have been thinking of a story way back when you sketched the thumbnails for it. (You did sketch some thumbnails to plan the composition, right?)

    Adding major elements to a nearly-finished picture as an afterthought... let's say it's very counterproductive and should be avoided. Plan first, not last.
