[C&C] Horse

on: May 28, 2011, 03:38:00 am
Here's the line-art of a rearing horse.



And that's how it looks after hours of trying to shade it.



To me it seems that the lines are quite decent but I'm not really happy with the shading. And it's not the wierd palette, alone! The horse looks flat and the outlines messy...

Ideas how to improve?

That actually looks pretty good to me.
The only thing I can really say (and I am not by no means horse expert) is that the back looks a little short,  like a pony.

I did a quick edit.  Im not really the best at pixels, but i tried to add some volume using colors already in the piece.  There are a lot of colors that are really similar and could probably be consolidated.  I tried to get what i could, but it was kind hard to see.  I added darks to some areas that would receive shadow that weren't addressed.  I could do a lot more, but i didnt want to spend too much time on it.  Im sure you would be able to push it more.
