Pushing Back, Pulling Forward

K9 King

Working Up to Details

With only five days left until submission, I have to ensure I’m using my time wisely.  Spending time on the most important aspects first and ensuring that the piece as a whole is unified.  Already I see that the character isn’t the main focus and the image focuses more on the moment and not just the K9 King, but it’s too far into the challenge to start over.  Finishing the image takes priority.

Fleshed out the crowd slightly, just to give them a little humanity and lend a bit of atmosphere.  Also got some good feedback about making the bear a bit bigger and the king smaller, lending weight and power to the grandeur of the scene.  I like how it turned out.

Next I’ll be tackling the armor, making it more kingly and softening the values on the flag and creating an insignia.
