final illustration

Still need to fix up some things on this one, but here it is! Critique went well. Everyone enjoyed the piece itself. I need to focus more on the fire and the anatomy of the body. I also think I need to focus on tangents and realize when I make them!

illustration 3 reference

Ok so the story goes, Fernin (short version of name I can actually pronounce!) is the son of Loki( God of mischief pretty much!). It was foretold that Fernin would help to destroy the world and kill Odin during the time of Raganok, "the end of the world". The gods were scared of Fernin as a puppy and they could only imagine how afraid of him they would be as a full grown dog. Tyr, the god of war, decided to look after him. As he grew he continuously broke the chains the gods put on him. So the gods made a magical ribbon that could hold him. Fernin asked if he could break those ribbons, even though he new he would have no problem. The gods told him yes he more than likely would. But Fernin made the gods promise that one of them had to place their hand in his mouth to test if he was trust worthy. Once he became bound by the ribbon He couldn't break loose. So Tyr was the only one brave enough to stick his hand in Fernins mouth. Fernin bit it off because of the lie. In my image I want to portray the hand of Tyr in Fernin's hand and in the other a spear with the teeth to represent the biting.

Ok so I am leaning towards 6 and 21, 6 isn't a very good shot so i think I am going to go with 21. 21 looks a little more "wolf like" to me as well. I should have taken time out to get into character more lol.

communication arts critique

I worked pretty hard on this piece and the feed back I got back was great but there were a lot of mixed feelings about certain things, like the facial expressions, and the red on the face, but I am just going to work some more on it and hopefully pull out something great!

Communication arts project

this was the preliminary sketch and color study:

critique on Metaphor

Overall I really just need to clean it up and think more about my compositions, but luckily everyone liked the deer one, which was my favorite as well!
