Okay heerreees my final sketch. i pulled him out a little and added lots more lilypads, but i really wanted to focus on him, so i chose closer rather than farther out. if hes still too far, i can make him smaller but i'd still like the emotion on his face to be visible. :) what do you guys think? any obvious anatomy errors i should consider?
I should note im not going for utter realism, there are some things (like his eyes) i would like to exaggerate. but in terms of relative proportion i am open for critique :)
