    Pumpkin creature meets Easter Bunny

    I not sure where to post this, i like loose and sketchy work, so to me it looks finished, but i'm also a newbie in digital painting, so i can imagine that for a professional i looks like stage 3 in a long chain of painterly refinements !
    The problem is that if i try to "refine" it..my paintings look stiff & dead !
    I would love to hear from all of you on this great forum...what do you think, what are the weak points and how to improve on them..its painted without reference images ,so anatomy can look a bit dodgy .

    Yikes! What happened? Did he skin the easter bunny!
    I liked the first version better, when the highlights weren't so white.
    I think you put too many white highlights on the pumpkin and the body.
    The body has lost some of its form and looks much flatter because the way you have lightened it.

    Try using light oranges and yellows on the pumpkin, and just reserve the white hightlights for certain areas.
    Put back some of the "flesh" colors in the body and make sure to describe the form (like in the torso).

    best,
    emily

    Yepp Emily ,....the Easter Bunny got skinned...so there will be no Easter Eggs !
    You were right it about the skin and pumpkintones...when i started the painting it was very sketchy and i was not sure how "humanoid" the Pumpkincreature should look, the result is a kinda lumpy ill drawn anatomy..i made some, i think, improvements on tone and anatomy .
