Fantastic coloring! Particularly the lips; most of the time I find it hard to indicate lips without them looking like blobs or a "kiss emoji" but you have a perfect balance in the coloring and shading to pull them off! Man, this style and the tactfully laid-out shadows and highlights is something I aspire to at some point with my art~
Really cool!! I love the effects you're using; they're scattered about but at the same time all of the movement doesn't detract from the central focus of it (which is your character) which is really nice! And the edge is a great touch. If I have any critique to give it's honestly a really minor one, in that the second tree trunk from the right seems to have an odd tangent with the thinner dark tree behind it...? But like I said, very minor. Awesome!
Hey, thanks a lot! Ah, I always manage to miss a tangent or two. I'll keep a better eye out next time.
Ha, awesome!!! I love the texture on the fur; even better than I pictured it! And ESPECIALLY the DJ panels, ohmygoodness, the detail is PERFECT. Then of course there's the lighting, the mask...just awesome. Awesomelicious. Did we ever figure out who won for this contest? I kinda stopped checking after a while, but there were several cool pieces and I'd love to see who was picked!
But again, amazing, you took this to a level that I totally wouldn't have thought of on my own. :D
Huh, I like it! Although I did think it said "Beauty is shin deep"...which actually wouldn't be bad; it was kinda funny. :D Love the watercolor/pen look; actually done in watercolor and pen or on the computer? OOOOH, and I just saw what you did with the oranges and blues, switching them and such! Very clever! Nice!
Thanks a lot, glad you like it! I did all the watercolour and pen traditionally, but I fiddled around with it in Photoshop before submitting (mainly colour correction and adding the muddy texture on top of everything).
Awesome job! This was a great competition, and I must say you did a better job than I did with shading and texturing and such. Just sayin'. ;) I really like her hair and how the hand around the leash is posed; it has a really strong grip, which kinda contrasts with her delicate complexion and benevolent glee? So something there just really works. Nice!
I was actually a bit displeased with some of the shading and texturing, haha. Thanks a lot!
This is pretty ACCEPTABLEEEEEEE!
Sorry, Lemon Grab kinda made that mandatory. ANYWAYS, awesome stuff!
Especially like the character from the thumbnail and the girl with the highlight; cute!
I shall call you Cut-and-Color, and so it shall be.
Ha! No, lets get down to business. It sorta is Cut-and-Color in my mind? But not in a bad way!
I love that style of art that takes simple shapes (or even not so simple shapes) and gives them
this cut-paper look, like it's a collage or paper art. Your style's really cool! Especially 'cause there's
a lot of room to overwork this (too much glow or light, too many things going on, one misplaced
shadow, one misdrawn line). Your work excels because it hangs in the balance of simplicity and clutter, and the end result is kind amazing! I'd love to see more, and I shall.
Cool concept and composition; I especially like the mountain in the back, how you shaded it, and the moon and the valley floor (based off of Death Valley, perhaps? It has that cool, endless look).
A critique: the robot's proportions? I don't mind that he's sketchy, but it looks like somewhere around his arms and hands he gets disproportionally skinny. It just seems to contrast too much with the size of his torso? If the size of his arms and legs were changed around a bit, it could even him up and make this even cooler! Especially with the shading you use; it's like he's sorta translucent, reflecting the night and his inner potential...
yea i know what you mean with the proportions but actually it was meant to be that way, maybe I didnt get it exactly as I wanted to illustrate it but it was sure meant to me unproportional. thanks for the review btw I like to know what people think when they see my work.
Nice job! I think one of the more difficult things to draw is strong fighting poses, especially holding swords, but you nailed it. The whole composition is really concise, and it circles in on the action (the actual sword fighting). The shading is pretty cool, as are the little details (the water droplets on the boots, the bits of rock); nice!
First thoughts before reading the comment? "Woah, this picture is so long!!! Where does it end?!?" But on a serious note, really cool! Nothing's overworked (like too defined or too fuzzy). If I have any critique, it's that his upper half is lighter than the bottom, but that might just be how the photo turned out? It's still awesome, and it all fits together. Love the shading, as well. :)
