Juggling - the story continues...



So you've already seen the above image - the only thing is, thanks to a last minute comment (thanks steve!) I thought I should try and push the panda's expression a little bit...so now he's looking away to help show his disinterest in juggling balls...




So I posted this - part two of the juggling story - to ask if it works. I originally had a chainsaw in the place of the bowling pin, but it was just too big and didn't fit in the space well enough...so a boring old bowling pin took it's place...also, it seemed to clash with the cat, and we all know that cats and chainsaws don't mix! But let me know what you think! Thanks for all the comments so far! I was able to push that first drawing way further than just by myself!

That's awesome. I love the objects you've chosen! So random - so effective!

I think you could push the lighting from the torch some more...allowing some of that yellow light to hit the cat's underside, the jester hat, more on the skunk's head, and the floor directly below to enhance the shadow underneath. But maybe not - its really not that close. I was also thinking about how it would look if that torch was less typical in it's position (inverted?).

It's awesome!

I do actually have some lighting from the torch (like on the cat and the skunk and the bowling pin) but it doesn't show up as clearly on the smaller picture...I wonder if I should exagurate it more...?

Okay, I see it now. You could try and see, but I'd hate to have you push it to far. I may be somewhat pyro after my last painting with firelight!

I think it looks great.

I also added a little more color to the cat (he was a little desaturated)...and I added a tiny bit more fire light...not much, but a little (I haven't posted it, but trust me, I did it...)...

Ah yes, making the panda look away really helped! Great idea.
I would say give the cat a bit more color as he's kind of disappearing into the bricks, but it sounds like you did that already. I am sure it's looking fantastic now!
