Just looking for some critiques while I work on this piece, let me know what you think!
looks like it’s coming along well, i dig it. maybe you could try making him both classy and instinctual by adding a half eaten worm hanging from his beak – i dunno, something to give it that raw hawk/bird feel. i’d make the monocle more prominent. the shading and colors are nice but play with some more!
Really like that worm idea, i’ll play around with it. I’m thinking maybe the monocle needs to be gold, it really gets lost in the blue now that im staring at it. Thanks for comments, i’ll be sure to update when I get some progress done!
Worm added,changed monocle color, more feather details around nose of beak. Maybe add feather in the brim of his hat, a little chain running from his monocle to behind is neck, opinions?
i’m digging the changes to the monocle and addition of the chain. i like the bowtie too!
in regards to the eating thing, hawks aren’t quite that glam:
