[WIP] Mr. Elephant

on: February 11, 2007, 05:39:55 am
His name is Bob. He is my elephant. I posted early while doing the lineart hoping I could get some crits if there's anything wrong with the lineart. Animation coming soon. C+C Please.  :D

Cropped. And tried some shading...I'm just so terrible with it and have no clue about or how to start shading. Anyone have some pointers?

Your palette needs much more contrast and should not have a saturation 0.
Elephants are not pure grey ^^

Also, you should pick a lightsource before you start shading ^^

The front legs look wrong, you should move his front legs a little to the right, and his front leg that's most behind the elephant should be placed a little behind his other front leg

I hope you mean to the right. The legs are already too far left.
