Work In Progress: more alien colour sketch

I changed the head of the mother alien character so she is more engaged with the rest of the group (and less symetrical). I'm going to start tighening up the main group next, and adding proper lighting and shadow effects. With only 25 days left in the contest I might have to lose the two outside characters. I may leave some of the ink outlines showing, depending on how fast the painting goes.

Work In Progress: lighting and colour sketch

I've started to block in the lighting and shadows for the main group of characters. The background is still rough and will require a lot of overpainting to clean up. I'm still working on the contrast levels and colour saturation, but I'm glad it is starting to take shape.

Oh lovely scene, it lools so warm and peacefull, wich contrast with the somewhat rough enviroment of a stone cliff, I like that....
I feel the next steps will be really exiting and crucial, right now some areas are alittle off with the lightsource, the guy standing right in front of the fire, by contrast, could look darker and outlined by the light.
The big projected shadows, like the one from the alien rising his finger are a great detail and help a lot for the mood, great work!!

Thumbs up Nice work

Yeah, the mother is part of the group now. Though the characters on the outside are really cool, I know how you feel about time, probably a wise choice for now to leave them out. The expression on the mothers face is priceless. Keep going.

I enjoy looking at your sketches very much. As for the colorings, may I suggest stronger, warmer and vibrant tones around the fireside and reflected areas. The shadows a cooler shade.

If you ask me, I wouldn't want to have a picnic in that spot. Its too scary and dangerous. What if the child or the baby falls off?!!

This has really developed nicely, it has a lovely atmosphere and a heartwarming theme - it brings a smile to my face Looking forward to the finished work now.

Work In Progress: painting progress

Thanks to everyone that has left feedback on my image so far, the comments have been helpful. I'm working on painting out most of the ink outlines now, and bringing the colours together. I've started to increase the contrast of the light and dark areas as well, and I have added some highlights here and there to show a difference in materials.

It's come along great. The characters tie in better now and the composition works quite well. Good luck

How beautiful

Fantastic work. I love your colour choices, they make the picture very balanced. The characters are also fabulous. If you were going for "diverse", I think you have it in spades. Great work.
