Coloring WIP: Wolf cub



the light over the mountings emphasizes the purpose of the path. the mammoths are leaving and the people have to follow them. grievous face of the child is smoothly lighted by a fading fire.

I like her expression, but her shoulders are naked... at the ice age?

It makes your intention more clear, Oz, but those people are still nomads travelling all their lives with no beginning and no end. They set up a camp for night, just to take it down the next morning.
You can make one cool picture out of it and i really like it, but in my eyes, it doesn't fit the theme.
I don't have to judge about it, but if you try to win a prize i guess you better have to face this problem.
I've seen a lot of people in here with real strong skills and also perfect fitting themes, so i guess somebody has to paint one scene you cannot misunderstand.

I know, its hard to throw this really cool picture away and start from sketch, just because there is one person don't think nomads are the right think to establish a "journey begins"-feeling. But in my eyes this would be the professional reaction.

Anyway, i don't care, i really like to see this one finished and for me it doesn't matter if you perfectly fit the challenge as long as the picture itself is good.

Nice concept and i likethe composition because it focuses so heavily on the face whilst still showing the start of the journey behind her.

The palette works nicely too.

Good luck!

thank youl all for your comments! they are important for me!

Duracel, thank you for your very constructive explanation of your seeing my work! you are completely right! regular migration for a tribe of those period was a necessity, caused by circumstanses. but this is the background idea. the main purpose of my picture is to show the feeling of a child, for whom this journey is for the FIRST time!!! she doesn't know, even don't clearly understand what is waiting her there - over the mountings. here is her birthplace, her home, her only world. the only the thing she can take with her is her only friend - a wolf cub. and for him it is a first time leaving the homeplace. it is the very beginning of HER journey,to a new camp, to a new life - that is why only her fase is showed and her feeling is important. the start is not always funny, and not always the hero is ready for it, even in case something better is awaiting at the end.
if i'd show how the tribe prepares for the journey, the girl and her friend could lost in a composition, which could look not dramatically.anohter thing, if i could show my idea in an appropriate way!
wait for your next impressions!
