    Inglourious Vermin WIP

    So I am working on this piece and I decided I would go ahead and share it; I wanna see what kind of feedback I get before I continue painting. I really appreciate any constructive critiques you might have. So far this is just the initial sketch with some flat values. I plan to do an overpainting, eliminating the line art and adding some finishing touches.

    I like the work you have so far, it's a really cool idea! The only thing that I can think of is a slight change in composition. The tail of the Squirrel in the middle fills in space between him and the mouse on the right, but leaves a space with him and the rabbit on the left. It kind of makes one side of the image heavier than the other. I suggest moving the tail a bit or making it smaller.

    I don't really have anything to say as a critique as I am a beginner artist. I just wanted to say that I can't wait for the final piece! Looks badass.

    I want to thank everyone who took the time to provide feedback on my Inglourious Vermin WIP. I have taken the suggestions and applied them to the artwork. I think the suggestions have made this a much strongerpiece.

    Here is what I changed:

    - Elongated the otter’s neck and changed the shell logo to something better.
    - Reshaped the squirrel’s hands, repositioned the tail and made the tail slightly smaller
    - Slightly changed rabbit pose to feel less stiff
    - Reshaped and better defined the wolf hand

    There was also the suggestion of using a gradient to enhance layer separation. I haven’t included it yet but when I define the lighting I am going to add that to the piece.

    Great characters, love the way you handled the anthropomorphic anatomy. I'd try making the local values of the background characters much lighter. Right now the front one's sillouhetteis getting lost due to the similarity of the values.

    So this is what I've been working on for the past week. As always constructive critiques are welcome. I still have to add some texture work, but I wanted to see what y'all think of it so far.

    I have made the following changes to the character:
    -changed knife position so that it was less perpendicular
    -redesigned the gauntlets so the hands were more visible
    -adjusted the left calf and ankle to feel less bulky and redesigned shin guards.
    -adjusted the fabric in the arms and scarf for better and more consistent fabric definition

    In addition to the changes above, I have also added some textures and patterns and other small details to the piece. Some of these might not be visible in the web version but in the full resolution 18x24, they are. For the moment I am considering the value stage of this character complete, next will be the color stage. However, I want to get the rest of the characters caught up to this one first. So check back soon to see which character gets the value treatment next.

    Got this guy far enough along that I thought I would go ahead and share my progress and see what you guys think. I still need to add a final pass adding textures and other small details.

    While waiting for feedback on the bunny I decided to go ahead and flesh out the value painting for the mouse character. I still need to do a detail pass, but enough is there to show it off for critique.

    Well, I got the wolf done, but instead of releasing his value stage I decided to just go ahead and put everyone back together again in the one poster. C&C welcome.

    Well, Chester has certainly come a long way since the first sketch.

    Capt. Elenore Seabreeze is just about ready to take over the seven seas and if you absolutely need a creature dead you might wanna call Scarlett Primrose
