Four years ago I did some Steam-Punk style anthro work, this is one of the images. Though it turned out alright for the time I created it, I have since gotten better with my lighting and detail work. In the original seen here, three companions are setting out on an adventure together. Since I wanted to get the image out quickly at the time, it suffered in several avenues. The overall scene resembled a theme park ride more than a group of characters heading off on an adventure. Posing was alright for the most part, but without a more complete set of props, again looked like a theme park ride. The lighting turned out flat and gave no shadows or highlights. Post work helped a little, very little, but again, no real life to the image. Though I wanted to go back and rework this image, I didn't get around to it until this past weekend. The new image is posted after this one.
