Progress on Flying Pigs


{Work in Progress, 2009}
{My Palette, 2009}
If you regularly read this blog, you have probably seen some of the stages of this illustration. There were several areas that I wasn't happy with. For instance, I didn't like the background; it looked too cheerful. I didn't like the standard lighting on the characters; didn't evoke the sense of mood I want to portray. Due to my unhappiness with certain compositional elements, I have been reworking areas and I wanted to share my progress so far. I also included a photo of my palette, because it is always interesting to see all the little colors I've mixed during a painting session and I don't even realize how full the palette is until I am cleaning up.

From the bother-inlaw critic. Looking good but the wings need some work look too different. Maybe listening to Pink Floyd's Animals CD mite help with a mood.
