Refining the look

Here's yet another experiment in nailing down the look I want for the artwork. This is Ollie and Snarz trekking across a sandstone beach.  I'm pretty happy with how this turned out, it took about three hours and I could probably invest another two in cleanup. But I don't really mind the rough edges here and there. I have to be mindful of my scale as the eroded crater features would be even larger relative to the characters.

Detailing the lighting on the sandstone takes a while, but all that detail is what gives sandstone such an interesting look, so there's no avoiding it.

I'll need to come back to Ollie at some point and make some decisions on her clothing and color scheme.
