Here is something I am doing for a client (my first). I was left very open on it, but it just had to do something with the University of Arkansas/razorback of some sort.
The compositional aspect I don't know if this works by having the hog in the middle or even the color pallet. Obviously I know the colors of the razorback will change I was just keeping it close to the reference as I was painting it. And the building is supposed to be our famous architectural piece on campus, Old Main.
Any help/suggestions would be great, thanks.
