u GET LOTS AND LOTS AND LOTS OF COOKIES! this is really amazing, it's detailed and beautifully made. U must have put hours into making this. the pose, the fur, EVERYTHING is gorgeously done. Bravo! IN OTHER WORDS,
I honestly don't like the lighting. I saw it and was like "oh, look, lion's chest. Oh, wait, there's his face." So everyone saying this is the best piece you've ever done is wrong, I've see so much more awesome out of this gallery.
the color scheme of the character and backlighting really didnt go well together xD; its what i get for shading before doing the colors. haha. i kind of agree, im not super happy with this, i dont know why people like it so much xD but i think your computer screen might have different contrast than mine, since the the face isnt totally obscured on mine.
That is possible with the screen color, I know that my laptop is off as far as colors go. The face isn't completely obscured, but the light definitely drew me to the chest first. XD; These things happen.
im looking at it on my dad's now (he's a photographer so he's got a super high quality one xD) and its even lighter than on mine actually, almost a light brown/orange where the sun hits XD; and here the backlighting is almost too bright, the attention goes straight to that. damn computer monitors, all being different xD; but yeah, the commissioner asked for the lions face to be in the shadows otherwise it changes colors or something. i dunno xD odd character ah well, what can ya do~
This picture reminds me of Prince Komali from Legend of Zelda Wind Waker Not in a bad way of course xD It just looks like him to me for some reason Like mabe an older version? And of course its different because its a lion too xD Well anyways its a beautiful picture
