Been fixing this even more and think I’m going to get to a state of color soon. I said that a few weeks ago but I keep becoming dissatisfied with a lot of elements of the image so I continue to work things around. The tree is officially ditched. It was one thing that I hated a lot and it’s only function was to fill in a spot I deemed too empty. Honestly I think it looks fine without it and just some sparce foliage instead.
Mental note to self: Detail birds, fix horns on front shelephant, tweak clouds to push eye flow, foreground foliage detailing.
