[WIP] Avatar for a friend

on: March 03, 2008, 12:40:52 am
Was working on an avatar for a friend of mine lately, wanted to get some feedback.  Its a hyena-type character, like a gnoll or whatnot.
I found fur to be very challenging to do, after about a dozen different tries at it I came to something I think looks okay.

There's no background yet.  And ignore the reds in the palette at the moment I was considering using reds as part as the background and just threw down some base red colours into my palette to start from.

good stuff, the eye doesnt look natural though, i think the fur should move around it better, atm it just looks pasted on top of the fur.

I think his face looks rather flat. I think more shading and highlighting wouldn't hurt.
I think you concentrated on the fur so much that you lost track of volumes, no?
