gorgeous, si! i especially love the water splashing. the glowing atmosphere really evokes the rainforest. super work!
I'll echo the above comment about the glow! I really like how you made it so in the background. The amount of details you put this one is pretty amazing.
Thanks guys. I'm pretty damn happy with this one's turnout. It speaks well for things to come using CS4 instead of Elements.I've got a few new concepts for drawings in the works, but I'm going to break things up by doing a little character design, to break things up, first.
some of your best work f'sho. the lighting effects are perfect and it's really cool to have so many steps of your progress on this one. good balance and good bear anatomy/weight analysis. it feels like it's charging through the river!
