Lazzhar, tx for taking a look I really like the night scene that you’ve come to, the rim across the back is especially good. Jeremy’s point about the light tone on the horizon makes a lot of sense, I wonder about the flower on the left being in a warm colour and that near the front of the frame. Since it’s warm in a cool comp with a complex shape it really seems to pull the eye back into a small section of the piece.
kevb3D, nice and dreamy feel. Really good work on the foliage, great variety etc. As per what Jeremy said the inside of the ear jumps out at me.
Great critque on my trials with fur guys, thanks.
As the eye is very small in this I went with a straight white highlight, it seems to read ok.
To combat the darkness of the rabbit I added in a soft warm light from camera left, it gives a hit of definition to pull the leg out of the shadow and add a light line at the front of the chest. I also turned the model a smidge and got a better highlight on the left cheek and the barrel of the body at the back leg.
I’m doing a diffuse glow and keeping everything pretty warm – I wonder if it would be more effective to have the rest cool and the rabbit warm. I hope to be able to get the rabbit unwrapped tommorow tommorow and play with some variety its his colour – tried to drive them with a quick vertex colour system earlier and they were extremely blown out for some reason. Looking at it now the SSS on the ears is over the top, and the defintion on the front leg and chest could be stronger as well. Definately one more time round I guess
