BACKYARD by donmalo BACKYARD by donmalo
Started this one yesterday and had a lot of issues. Wasn't happy with the composition, the look and - well - the entire image. Took a break and rework the image today.
Kind a like it so far. If anybody have some suggestions - feel free to hit me hard with it.
Cheers

About how long did that take you? I bet a lot of people ask you that, but its always fascinating picking at pros art to unlock there secrets :)

No prob - just ask:)
Well, this one was roundabout 4 - 5 hours and another one for the final touches and color changes.
But it depends on the theme and the style. Some of my images are done quicker and some of them are a never ending story.
The thing is just to find a good balance between loose and detailed areas. Guess thats the trick:)

Thanks thats great advice :). One last question though: can you spend that long when working in house on a project?

you're welcome:)
well - in case I do just freelancing its a bit hard to tell.
I guess yes. But it depends on whats the illustration for. Is it just for conception, I presume that you'll not have that much time.
Is the illustration for marketing or promotional purposes, then I believe you have enough time to finish a highly detailed in the time you need.
Hope that helps a bit:)
Cheers
