This is amazing! I LOVE your cell shading on this! Th only think I was would say to critique it, is I think some of the anatomy is a bit off, The back comes up a bit too high right behind the neck instead of flowing upwards, and I think the pelvic area is a bit too thing and meshes right into the tail. Otherwise the pose is awesome, the way you painted the ground is amazing, and the cell shading is amazing! I'm trying to get better at that myself, any pointers on your process for cell shading that can help me would be greatly appreciated! I think I do things a bit the retarded way hahaha. Also how did you get that painterly effect on the ground? was that done in painter or did you use a smudge brush in photoshop?
Thanks very much! Yeah I'm also seeing all kinds of anatomy mistakes here and there now that I look at it after 2 years of making it xD I painted the ground in photoshop, with different types of custom round brushes :'D I never use the smudge tool for drawing/coloring, because it doesn't make things look good in my opinion.
haha I totally know how that is, when I worked on Seraphim for the first time in years, my other pics of him that I thought were so awesome, I think are just so messed upnow hahahah. I dont know if you saw my newest progress of him. Did you make the round brushes yourself? I really would love to know how to get that painterly effect like which brushes to use I have been attempting to do it, but it never looks right to me.
