Hello there. Your concept is very funny in a mildly disturbing way. This should be a fun illustration to work on. I look forward to seeing your progress. Good luck.


#8

final sketch and composition.


#9

He guys, thanks for the post. I’m glad you like them. I will be posting more tonight. Going to try to crank some of it out.


#10

Hey guys, thanks for the feedback. I’ll post more tonight.


#11

some value studies of the piece and a little bit of a composition change.


#12

Thanks Megan and Kris, I really appreciate the feedback. I’ve decided to change the posing of the arm and the left candle. Also, I added color to the piece.


#13

That chicken really seems to be enjoying himself. Funny stuff. And I definitely like the changes to the arm position; it provides more visual clarity.


#14

That’s funny! Good progress so far - you may want to push the drama with more contrast in your darks and lights - excellent work!


#15

Thanks for the comments guys. I will make those changes.


#16

Hey everyone. I’ve popped some of the lights and a little more contrast.


#17

I put some more mood into the piece and add some vegetation to the plate. I thought it looked plane. I still have a ways to go, but this is the fun part.


#18

some of the fun detail work…


#19

opps, double post.


#20

So, I looked at my painting on a different monitor and found out that my image was way to bright. I adjusted the levels and I believe it turned out much better. (thank you Cliff for the comment) I also poped a few of the highlights and added a little more detail. I think it’s almost done.
