    Tentacle horror last update today

    I've been noodling quite a bit on this one, and I think it turned out kinda decent. There are WIP's in here as well.
    The jpg turned out a little blurry, so I'll include a closeup as well, so you can see some details.

    Comments and crits are very welcome!

    Hey Dcept, it think it's really nice but you really got to show some more underwater movement, because the male figure position looks almost impossible

    First off, I'm having trouble understanding what it is thats holding the boy. Is it a monster with tentacles or is it a tree? Additionally, stay away from using white straight out of the paint tube altogether. Everything is too dark and muted as well. Give us more color, less mud and establish a first read. Right now your first read is not only the light but the light bouncing off the clothing and the reflections off the tentacles. They all appear to be the same exact intensity. If you work from darks to lights, I think you could make a much better image. You also want to go tighter with repsect to the drawing but then again maybe this is a sketch. Keep up the good work.

    Movement of the boy isnt so good. Try to recreate composition in portrait format.
    Using pure white is dangerous. Try to rich it a bit.

    I think the anatomy's a little strange too - the head looks too big. Much as you might want to be conveying movement, this is a really static image. You could generate more sense of movement if the boy/man?? was in a more dynamic pose. He's very stiff right now.

    I also think the monster's eye is too close to the top of the image and I agree about the "don't use white for highlights" commentary people have already put on this thread.

    haiku: Thanks for the comments man! I realized I made a grievous error.. It's not supposed to be underwater at all.. hehe... bad colorchoice.

    FIG: Yeah... good point. It is supposed to be a monster. I'll rework it dark to light, and see where it goes.

    Danilo: I suppose by portrait format you mean the height would be the longest side? If so, I see what you're talking about

    BMunchausen: Thanks for the critique! I'm going to rework it soon. I spotted the head as well... it's a bit too big. Look out for a more dynamic pose coming to a screen near you! heh...

    Thanks a bunch you guys!
