Hi everyone,

Thanks a lot for all your feedback. It has been a little while since my last update, but here is the next one. Only a small one and there is still lots of stuff to do. I changed a lot in the surroundings and camera perspective. The houses looked a little bit strange in the background so I thought I give it a try without them and I will think about something different for the background.
Now you can see, that the droplets are coming from the hairy guy and I made the girl's hair more readable against the background. As well as I changed the colour of the grass and put some flowers and shamrocks in there

I will definitely work more on the expressions, posings and textures of the characters.

Have a nice day everyone and feedback and critics are as always very welcome

Hey everyone,

just another update on my image. I changed the light, so that it is now coming from the back and gives everything a warmer, shiner, more yellow look. As well as I changed the grass. I hope it looks much more believable realistic, although I am not 100% happy with it. So if you have any hint, how I could improve it, I would really appreciate it. I added some flying leaves and dirt to make the whole image more lively.

I am still going to change the textures of the hairy guy's legs, the right arm of the blue guy looks also a little bit off, the over lightning of the yellow guy, where the texture is breaking off and the bow of the flying monster. Currently I am also thinking about, what to do in the post. But I want a really nice rendering first and then only doing small things in Photoshop. Like a little bit colour tweaking etc.

It would be great to get some feedback and have a nice Sunday evening.

Thanks a lot

Hey Anna,

It looks much better now IMO.
I think though that the blue guy's hand - the one that is trying to block the plant - is somewhat twisted and does not look natural.

Also, perhaps you could make its drool less thick. The size should diminish quite rapidly from the main blob (if that makes sense ) (at least with my drooling moments)

I really liked the finish line thingie. But if you want to have the scene without it, maybe you could try having some paint of the pavement (like a big white line) saying finish line or sth like that.

thanks a lot for your feedback. You are perfectly right about the arm. I changed it already and it looks much better. I took the finish thing out, because it was really disturbing and covered too much of the characters. But maybe I go for the line on the ground

Next update is in work

and another update. I changed the arm of the blue guy, put in another character as well and a finish line too. I am still undecided about the finish line and will try some more variations.
I put some eyelashes on the girls eye and depth of field in as well. I tested out some postwork, too.

I am still working on some little details, like the hairy guy's legs, putting more structure on the wings of the flying monster and so on and on.

Have a lovely evening

I finished the image and it can be seen in my portfolio in the link above. I think it turned out really nice and I like it a lot.

So thank you so much for all your help and I really appreciate it, that you took the time to look at it and make suggestions how to improve it I learned lots of thinks, so thanks a lot and the next one, is already waiting

Have a nice evening
