Re: need help with background - red robin

Looking good. All of the colors and tones are working together really nicely.

Re: need help with background - red robin

really love the depth you have got with the background. that little bird is so well done and the seed adds to it. I do have to wonder if your going to work on the halo around the bird. Isnt it amazing how different parts of the world have completely different colors to the same bird.

Re: need help with background - red robin

Thanks everyone for your comments. Laurie, yes I do planning on toning down that halo around the bird, my husband commented that he looks too "holy". We don't have red robins like this in Australia, I'm using a photo ref from a photographer in the UK. I think I may have made him more red than he should be, I think they are more orange?

Re: need help with background - red robin

They are more orange, like the orange/red bit in the highlighted area. But to me that looks fine for a robin.
