really like this one, refreshing concept. wonder if the latest update is a part of the first composition, or a new one. cuz the first one seemed really humorous to me

Coloring WIP: Mouse Trap

Thanks everyone for your great suggestions. I need your help on this one. Do I leave the characters out in the foreground (as here) or do I keep them in.

Keep them in! Now there's a real hole in the foreground. Second thing I would like to point on is the colour of the light. Where does the warm, orange-yellow light in the foreground comes from? It's a little too simple to use cool colours like blue in the background and than warm tones in the foreground. For me, you establish a kind of barrier between the different space layers (sorry for my English, I can't express this more precisely ), a "border of colours" so to say. The problem is most obvious if one looks at the rope. It's colour changes in the middle of it's lenght. That's not convincing for me.

In the moment l like the backround better than the scene in the foreground, the ships are great, how they are partly coverd by the fogg.

Thanks for the suggestions. The warm light is coming from off screen (foreground right). That is why the rope transitions from warm to cool. I wanted to use warm as a contrast to the cool night, this creates a better focal point. In much of my work, I have the light source off screen.

Just starting the detail on the mice. This one is almost done. I'll be posting a few more ideas soon.

Nice update Cliff, looking good so far, but one thing I must mention, I am having a hard time understanding why the mice are just occupying the bottom left corner, making it a little bit uninteresting compo. Maybe u want to fill more of the space at the bottom just a tad more. I still like the painting, a lot though, don't get me wrong! Good luck dude! Will drop by later to check the progress!

It's getting realy awesome as detailing up . I have just one tiny suggestion anyway. That rope leading to the ship is first realy nicely curved but Iater, when closer to ship, it gets perfectly straight. I dont know if it is right or not, actualy, but it doesn't work with me. I think it shouldn't be so straight...

Keep it up
