I am very happy to find this forum - emotion is my weakest skill in art (closely followed by posing and composition - also quite weak!)
This image is quite typical - fairly interesting content and a nice finish but devoid of action, emotion or purpose. I want to change the two female characters to give add some story and emotion to the scene - and will almost certainly remove their masks to show some facial expressions, as well as giving them poses (rather than the flat standing pose they currently have)
Ideally I would make the image say “exciting and mysterious exploration by talented scouts”.
I am looking forward to your ideas!
