Looking for feedback on the poses for a Children's book illustration
The coloring isn't finished by half, but I keep looking at the two characters below the big guy and find that their construction needs to be fixed somehow. Since I'm already taking too long on it, I thought I would show it to you guys and continue posting updates to my progress. Context for the piece: it is a scene of a gadgeteer girl planting an apple core under the guidance of a forest giant and her goblinoid sidekick. The setting is a garbage world and the background will reflect this once the key characters are hammered out (I wanted the characters to be able to be made into a spot illustration in the event that works better for the format).
Just to clarify my goals: This is an illustration I want to make part of a young adult story catered to ages 8 and up. I am illustrating it in a pastel style similar to Will Terry, and I am currently working on the manuscript. While I do pretty well when I'm asked to draw cartoons fast (in the context of a storyboard or comic) for some reason I go OCD with this sort of work, and I think part of the remedy for that is to be part of a community that can provide a new pair of eyes. I also have always liked Penny Arcade's artist's corner's culture and robust critique, and I'm looking for a critique community to be a part of.
