ah...ya, I was not really happy with those aspects, but just tired of the entire piece (except the lions) sooo doubt I'll re do it... thanks for the imput though..I totally agree... I had wanted the pants to be a dark grey...and in fact in the final LARGE version I had lightened up the black so it shows the texture...you might want to click my link for that version...still I agree... about his pose...I was very frustrated trying to make it work for the terrain (from the movie image in my head) and all.. oh well onward and upward... ie: this one:Great to hear, Lyne! Those were made from photos taken around this time of year, too.
Very nice image. I love the grass you used with the ground texture. The lions look great and relaxed.
I hope it's okay that I make a suggestion. The black pants on the male figure are confusing to me because there isn't enough contrast to see which leg is which. And the black texture doesn't seem to fit the scene. This combined with the stiffness of the hand on the left leg/knee. His hands, and perhaps his neck and shoulders, should be as relaxed as the lions posture to complete the story his face is telling.
Thanks so much for sharing here!
