Your pepper looks lovely Garrett! I like your interpretation of her, and the salamander/dragon she's riding is awesomesauce.

Just a suggestion. Maybe if you vary some of the colours on Pepper just like you did on your dragon, it will help to unify the overall design of the piece. Maybe a touch of reflected light from the blue dragon bouncing onto Pepper will create an added touch of realism too. =)

Keep up the awesome work! ; )

ooh I can see what you mean about the mix feelings to the edit. Red is usually a tough colour to make work for me as well. I wonder if perhaps the saturation in the blue reflected light on pepper is too light. Perhaps a more greyed tone will work. The saturation of blue light on her right now appears to be just as strong as the dragon. I think the strength of colour and saturation tends to get diffused the more surfaces it is reflected from.

hehe if you have time to try that out, it'll be cool to see how it goes. If not, it's ok. Looks like you've spent a good amount of time on this =)

hey thx for the comment on my cloverfield post. I personally thought the last 10 minutes of the film didn't live up to the film, esp. after the (SPOILER!!!!) helicopter crash happened. And yea i missed when the comet thing crashed but one of my friends saw it and told us about it. Apparently it could also be the satellite of the japanese company that rob was going to work for....a possibility you find out through all the viral campaign info that abrams gave out through diff. sites. Btw did you know they made fake myspace pages for the main characters too? They went all out

hehe thx for the clarification on the backstory. Btw how'd you know I was the one that wrote that post? I didn't realize til afterward that I was signed in under my friend's blog since I was using his laptop.

Hey, thanks for stopping by my blog! You've got some really great illustrations here. Especially like the ones from the Royal. I'll definitely keep an eye on what you're posting. :)
