hello everyone :)
I don´t really know what to say. I like to paint but I don´t speedpaint very often and scribble and sketch mainly traditional. - but I want to do that more...
(so I can post something :D )

I very 'creatively' titled this one "grass" and it took me about 15 mins... :) I want to learn how to paint environments... so my poor charackters don´t have to live on plain white.
Thats excactly the problem I have with the second pic.
I don´t know what to do with it. The creature is nearly finished (I uploaded it big... there are lots of details already on the head) but I´m not sure if I will finish it. The way it is now it looks just lost in the format and all BG´s I tried looked stupid... It would be nice if anyone had an idea... or maybe something I can do better next time...
(oh and it´s not a speedpaint... ther are maybe about 5-6 hours in it already...)

so thanks and greetings to everyone :)

For the animal, if you keep the head detailed and the rest less, it would be a good focal point.

Add a blurred background, suggesting something but to blurred to make something out of it. Some highlight in the BG also to get the focal point out better and it should be fine.
