Well, I`m stuck.

on: January 18, 2015, 11:11:51 pm
This year`s Secret Santa was a messy thing for me. As a result, I failed to finish my present in time (I showed part of it), but I ought to finish it at last through thick and thin. At one moment I realised I couldn`t come up with any way to make it better, and the picture, unfortunately, was faaaaaar from perfect.
Suddenly I got a couple of ideas just before posting here, but I`m going to ask advice nevertheless.

You may comment on everything you consider deserving mentioning, although I`ve decided to solve some general problems first, such as overall balance, composition, palette.

Here is the original version I had:


Version #2:


Version #3:


Made #2 & #3 in a minute, so they are super-rough, but I hope that`s enough to point out general problems. I think the balance is pretty nice in the 3rd one.
I don`t like the current palette. Some colours are pure waste.

May be this photo will help you to understand what perspective I`m going after.

Nice art! The stars very well painted! About your problem, I believe the version #2 is more natural.
Also you could try a version #4, a more circular shading if you know what i mean.

Nice art! Stick with this one and i would love to see your final piece! :y:
