feedback/critique on imaginary thing.
First sorry for the bad photo with glare and everything, this is a WIP so some spots are wet and others sunken in. This is something done without reference, im mainly interested in if you like it or not and after that technical aspects. During this painting i learned about composition and shapes and design but it was too late or cumbersome to incorporate what i learned.
So after some consideration i went with Muniz suggestion. Dont know, is it better now? Photo still a little bit bad, had to take it in a low light enviroment (bathroom).
Looks cool! I like the strong blue lighting you've got going on the creature's head--I would recommend continuing this level of light as it extends towards the arm muscles, the tree trunk, and the rocks, both to keep the consistency of the light source and to continue the composition as it leads downwards to the people. By this I mean extending the light further across the top plane surfaces rather than keeping it to a small rim light. I would also recommend adding a strong cast shadow for the creature across the tree trunk, for the same reasons as above, and darkening the background forest area underneath the trunk to be consistent with the area visible on top (behind the creature). Last thing would be to add some texture to the trees--you have a good bark texture already but it's consistent to the point where it can look flat. Try breaking it up with even larger grooves with strong shadows and breaking up the cylindrical shape into a more organic/asymmetrical silhouette. Showing the breaking point or roots of the tree as the creature moves it can be a good way to do this. Hope this helps and let me know if you have further questions :)
