So it has been awhile since I was last here, still getting use to this new design so apologise if I mess up somewhere. Still a beginner and been reading a few art books a long with James Gurney's Colour and Light. I've also been tuning in to LevelUp each week and have bought some Gumroad tutorials while also checking out Concept Cookie.
Anyway, I've been working on this piece now for a while on and off, at first I was practising hard lines within the painting then I kind of lost my way and started experimenting with different brushes; so you could say this entire piece is pure experimental but so far I'm proud of the out come but this is where I need your help... How can I make this pop? Is there anything I should fix and where could I take it from here?
I thought I should also post the last piece I worked on so you can get an idea of my progression so far.
Thanks to you all who take their time to view this thread.
