Deepen the dark areas behind the figures and add a lot of brightness to the highlights and she's all done.
Bad Dwaggon! Oil Paint on recycled panel 24" X 30" SOLD
One of the more gratifying things about this picture is that I was able to re-use the entire image as a page in my coloring book. Although I did give the elf girl a little more clothing.
I also offered the original painting as a pledge level during my Kickstarter campaign. When the guy bought that particular level I found out that he lived in Phoenix but didn't have a car, he rides the bus to work and had no means of coming to get his painting No problems, I packed the painting in the car, and picked him up after work and drove him and his artwork home. This kind of thing helps me worry a lot less about failures such as contests which I have no reason to be entering in the first place.
