OK, first post here, so...hi everybody, I guess. Anyway, I got here thanks to Tracy from lackadaisycats.com (my avatar is from a picture she did), who gave me this URL. OK, so I did this picture and I'm ready to CG it, but I need some critiques first. I have already fixed the cartoonish feet and the blocky knee, but any more ideas on how to make it better are welcome. The background is also not detailed on the sketch, because I want to make it mostly CG. I haven't used Photoshop to make some serious colouring in the last two years (most of my pictures aren't worth the time to get coloured, I don't tend to finish what I start), so I'd like to try to make this look nice.
The idea is...well, Anacharsis is some sort of dream creature. He lives trapped inside the best part of the dreamworld, the lucid dream where everything works according to your wishes. Anything you want is there, which can hardly be considered paradise, as there is no effort required for anything, and it makes satisfactions dim and reality- or unreality- pretty boring. The only means to enjoy himself he has is write poetry or paint pictures, because that depends not on his wishes but on his creativity, and even though he can create anything he wants around him, he cannot just be a genious by wishing it. Of course, how to get poetic inspiration in such a perfect world, where time does not exist and nothing perishes, is the complicated thing...
Also, this is how the CG looks so far:
