Gotta Have a Hook Challenge pt4 (the done-en-ing)

I think this will be the final. I played with the palette some and added subtle details and changes to fine tune it. I feel like I've gone about as far as I can with it before I overcook the pasta. Unless you have any other ideas I think I'm calling it done. As DaVinci said, art is never finished, only abandoned.

nice evolution rayford- I think this came out really nicely.

The only crit I have is the dwarf guys hips/upper legs seem odd anatomically. It doesn't ruin the image by any means, just seems a little strange is all.

I'll echo what Nate says about the legs, but also add that they overall look a little long. It kills the "dwarfines" of the figure a bit, so that viewed from a distance it's not clear whether he is a dwarf or just subject to some severe foreshortening.

Oh Man! This one's amazing. I have just been working on mine and started looking for more info about the Hook Horror (not very familiar with the creature I've been) and stumbled upon this killer! Awesome.

Fantastic!
Although I feel a little sad for the orphaned Baby Hook Horrors. A boo hoo.
Did you ever finish that Moby Dick piece from down the page?

Thanks everyone! Ian: I'm still working on the Moby Dick paintings. I should say I'm building my studio so I have a space to actually work on those Moby Dick paintings. I plan on doing those in oils but my studio space is more of a storage space for toddlers at the moment. Hopefully I can find some time in the next few weeks to really get in there and set it up. Thanks again!
