Take 2 - WIP

Here's where I'm at on the monster piece today. I'm having a bit of trouble with the background. The color I was planning for didn't look so good after seeing it on the final piece. I think the one I have now is coming forward a bit but I'm not too sure about greying it down too much. I could add blue to it like there is on the left - light or dark grey blue - which would seriously change the mood of the piece. I wanted to keep it light and cheery.

This is going to be just fabulous Nicole :)

I think keeping it light and cheery is good :) tho i do adore that darker shadow area you have going on there :)

Just wondering are you drawing this as you go ? i cant see any type of line drawing happening there ?

oh no :-) - there is a contour drawing, mainly outlines, on there in white. They tend to get rubbed off as I progress so I do lose a bunch of the lines, but if some show it really helps out. The pastelbord is really weird with colored pencil. You can rub off the pencil very easily.
