Help!



Ok, so I went sketch crazy last week and I colored them all w/colored pencils. They look super nice in person, but when I put them into the computer they looked quite trashy. xP So, I decided to just upload them as line art and color them in w/my neglected tablet.

My problem is that I cannot decide what is wrong with it...This is my first attempt...



I don't know what's wrong, but it just doesn't feel right...Too busy maybe? Anyway, I decided to give it another go, and totally changed the style of it.



Now this one looks crappy in thumbnail, but I like it when you can see everything. *shrug* it doesn't feel finished either...I'm so frustrated! :(

  2. Design is an on-going process. Your jaw would drop if you saw the early designs for some famous characters, they don't look anything like the final approved version.

    The only things I could spot that look weird are the light source on the creature does not match the direction of light shining on the cliff. The grass also looks like it's receding instead of advancing, and there's a seam line between the sharp grass and the soft cliff. Hope that's not too mean of a critique, I generally don't like appraising someone else's work.
