Magnificent Moto

3 finished drawings down, one to go! I think I surprised myself with this drawing with the amount of color I used, especially in my shadows. I usually have flat, dull shadows, but I think I did alright with them on this one. I think I should focus more on that. Also something to work on is not making my darks so dark! I don't know what everyone else thinks, but sometimes I'm afraid my images are too dark. Most children's illustrations are bright and happy and colorful...not that it has to be that way, but I think there is something in that, and I would like to capture that a little more. However, in my own defense, this image is meant to be dramatic so I think dramatic lighting is appropriate. I like dramatic lighting sometimes and I don't want to lose that, but I also don't want dark images that you can't see very well. I need to find a happy medium.

Incredible work. I wish I could draw things like that. I guess I'll just have to stick to typography. :D Anyway, love the work, (and the lion's totally punk rawk hair) keep it up!
