tribute to Bobby's style:) practice assignment

Hello again peepz! I've tried out a painting of a creature, using Bobby Chiu's style, and allready excisting features of some of his creatures, so im not taking any credit:) (hope it is ok:) ).

I have become better at freehand paintings, but im still struggling a bit with the realistic parts. on this creature for instance, im having a hard time with the shadows is the face.
Can anyone of you fellow students help, or give me a hint? =) Thanks

To me the over all painting is looking flat. The lighter areas in the bumps are popping out of the page, where as the body feels like it's a flat surface. I'd work a bit more on the body so that it has more volume (kind of like the tongue - that's looking like it has more of a 3D feel to it.) Also, if you follow the lighting direction of the tongue, then parts of the body that are in shadow should be a lot darker (like under it's neck). That will help give it more shape and might be why you're having trouble with the shadows on the face. Good luck!
