“what the heck’s with geck?” continued…
I received valuable feedback on my first try at a gecko. These are my changes, I reversed the color to be dark on the edges and lighter at the center, made the eyes less scary, and made the gecko skinnier with smaller back legs.
On a technical note, I also changed the outline to the pen tool which gave me a consistent line weight and nicer curves (notice the tail)
I was playing with different layers and noticed that the gecko doesn’t look to bad when I just use the outline with the body color layer turned off. Also I liked the solid body color.
