Beachcomber vs. Mini-kraken

MY IMAGE(S):



GENERAL INFORMATION:
Title: Beachcomber vs. Mini-kraken
Year Created:
Medium: Watercolor
Surface: Paper
Dimension: 13 x 18
Allow digital alterations?: Yes!

MY COMMENTS:
A female Eustreptospondylus while beachcombing, encounters a beached ammonite that is still alive. Scene takes place in the Jurassic period on an island that will become present day England.

Same as before, I'm looking for feedback on the artistic side of this composition.

MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
Like my other works posted, I would like to receive feedback on color choice, lighting, scale, etc.

Scientific critique is unneeded, but is welcomed.

Re: Beachcomber vs. Mini-kraken

IMHO your contrasts need to be stronger. I've included one in gray scale and one in gray scale increasing the contrasts. You might have some fun trying acrylics to get more saturated color, but that's just a suggestion. It looks like you are having fun creating these.

Thanks for the critique and I will consider remaking this in acrylics. It seems that in a lot of my works, contrast and values tend to be troublesome and I agree that it something I need to work on. Yes, I do have a lot of fun in making dinosaurs "come alive."
