"Improve Portfolio's Style" Experiment Week 3

Even after making an improvement on my crab piece last week, I got some great tips on how to push it even further:

  • Removing some debris on the antennae
  • Lighten the contrast on the ship
  • Break up the seaweed and make it smaller to make the crab look bigger
  • Make the shadow more looming
  • Add a shipwrecked crew member to add scale and size to the crab
Sometimes you just want to move on to the next piece, but it can be good to stick with an illustration until you learn everything you can out of it. It will be a better piece in the end!

Have you reworked a piece to make it better? Post before and afters in the comments!
