Grin by Lefice Grin by Lefice
Well, I wasn't expecting to, but I colored it. I'm really pleased with how it turned out, too!
I couldn't think of anything to put into the BG, like always, so I just kinda thew smokey gradients and a few halfassed clouds on it. It seemed to fit, and kept it nice and dark so it wouldn't hurt my eyes. :B

Newmoon giving everyone a snarly grin. (this time in color!)

Download it if you wish for the full size. :)
Please do not take or use the character or the art, thank you!

The background gave him wings on purpose, didn't it?

nicely done, is the bg a seperate layer? if so I would most definitely try putting a background behind it (nothing distracting... just something to help tell a story) that would make this piece complete... very nice!

Thank you!
Backgrounds are my bane, haha, but, yeah, I see what you mean. I just have no idea what I would put back there. That's usually my problem. I'd only get the character to pop up in my head, but nothing surrounding it.

I normally ask myself something about the character, you know, like what is it's personality, would it be in the wilderness or city, if so, what type? Maybe you should take the finished piece, shrink it down to a small thumbnail, and paint the background in... do multiple different settings and explore with it. I might even try putting him in a setting that you would think he most definitely would NOT be in... just to make sure your not excluding something that could be the perfect match.

I normally don't have characters pop up in my head though, mine stem from a shape (normally and oval or circle) and come into being... and then depending on what they are, the background compliments them. I can't speak with TOO much authority on the matter though, I am more of a sketcher, I rarely take my characters to completion, which means a lot of them lack background :) unless I sketch it in... and then the sketch looks 10x better :P

here are a couple questions I would ask myself:

What type of environment do they live in?
- What type do they hate?
- What type are the weak against (sometimes the same as the hate one)

What is their emotion in the picture? Why?
Do they like pie?
Do they feel like the world is against them?

;P ask you can see, all those are questions you can elaborate on, they allow you to deeper think of your character and figure out just why they did what they did, feel how they feel, yearn for what they don't have.

This is a rather long comment, sorry, I think maybe a lot of this one is actually talking to myself and not so much to anyone else :) . I would suggest thumbnailing your pieces, don't go for tight detail, just go with impressionistic thumbnails that give you a mood, and once it is done, you can say that is what you had in your head from the start XD.

The teeth and eye pop out perfectly! It's all subtle and awesome and mysterious! Definitely a good coloring of the sketch.
