I really like this one, even though it is a bit undefined on its bottom part xD. How did you choose the colors for your "limited" palette, I'd like to try this exercise...Greetingsdrawingcode
I would love to try this as well. How do you select a limited palette that still allows for such great definition. I like that it gets undefined towards the bottom. It makes it look like it's in a fog.
@drawingcode, @Ivan: Thanks! To leave the bottom part much less defined was absolutely intentional - I wanted to keep the focal area close to the creatures head.Easy use of limited palette: Create a relatively light background first and then pick a similar color, but with a darker value. Try to keep focusing on silhouettes with using only that one color. When you finished the general shape, you pick the color for the areas hit by light and slightly darker in value for the shadows. The best is, if you choose a warm for the light and a colder or more neutral color for the shadows - it helps to read the forms more.Try to keep focusing on the key areas. This technique is not about detailing, but more about experimenting.Hope this helps... :)
This extremely helps! Thank you Mark!!
