Thomas - WIP 1 - Starting to Add Color
Here's the latest update to Thomas. As you can see I have started to add color. I will be toning down the yellow in his fur and adding more color to his face. These layers of color are only the preliminary layers. There are more to come.
In the photos I have taken of Thomas, he has some yellow/gold in his fur on his back and a little bit on the side of his body. However, when I saw Thomas, I don't remember seeing that much yellow. I have asked his owner to take a look and make sure the photos aren't lying to me.
I have also decided to darken the background on the right side a little bit. As you can see, I have chosen to have the main lighting source come from the right side at an angle. However, I do think it is a bit harsh as it is. I won't start on the right side of Thomas's face until I get that darkened just a little bit more.
Next I will be adjusting his colors and doing more to his head.
