Although, I am feeling my sketch more:
I need to go back to the drawing board. My sketch composition is working better. In part because the cat is looking to the left and there is the danger, helping the eye to rotate around the page. In the full color piece, you are left hanging and your eyes are fighting between the cougar and the kayak. The sketch’s monotone palette allows the eye to better take in the action. Also there is more character in the animals in the sketch. Finally the pencils work better on the crappy paper I am trying to draw on. Lesson, free blank paged books are not always the right material for drawing in.
I will redo this one, when time allows. The idea is adorable thanks Evan! Perfect week to chime in, Matt never gave me a theme this week.
