I took some of your advice and updated the Loch Ness design , What ya’ll think now?
Nessi moves somewhat unnaturally on the water.
I would divide the background with the water where Nessi swims and draw the lower part of it over Nessi’s layer and the upper part underneath. Then it looks more like Nessi is swimming.
Oh, and the edges with a soft cut-out.
Thanks for the tip, but ive spent enough time on this one, Ive moved on to a bee 1 that i posted in community and need help speeding it up if you could have a look at it.
Just once more on the subject of “Nessi” and the liveliness…so roughly done on the fly it looks a bit livelier.
