I'm following Jake Parker's advice, and have set out to draw 100 hands. Therefore, I am requesting your feedback at every 10 hands I draw. Any critiques and advice are highly appreciated! Thank you! Below are Hands 11-20.
If you have all the pictures on the cover, I feel like they have less impact when the reader comes across them in the book, so you might want to save something for them to discover inside.
When I saw that the theme for the Contest this month is Travel, I thought of my brother, who hates to travel! So I thought I'd try a contra-concept.
Here are my thumbnails so far. It's looking like it could be a sticker, or on a mug (or travel mug?---ha, ha).
Please let me know if you think this design works in the first place, and whether you like the first idea with words about travel & adventure, or if you like the landmark silhouettes idea, or if you think I should try something else. I was also thinking of possibly having a light background of a global map inside the circle.
I would appreciate any comments / critiques (both positive & negative)! Thanks!
I love the colors, was this done on textured paper or did you simulate it digitally? Either way it's cool. My only critique is that the heavy black line on the flag to the far right wants me to believe its in front of the green flag when it is the other way around. I would soften that edge a bit to drop it slightly behind the green one. All in all, love this.
@gary-wilkinson - good point!! I should have added some people into my thumbnail sketches. (I'll have to save the zombie apocalypse for a later date) I have gotten into a bad habit of not roughing my sketches all the way out and then jumping into the artwork before taking it to the next refinement stage. Thank you for taking a look and sharing feedback! It's much appreciated.
@kathrynadebayo thanks for the feedback! I have to confess the little fish was a bit of an afterthought. but I see what you mean about it being a distraction. Will consider cropping or maybe play with scale/colour. Thankfully it is on a separate layer 😀
I signed up for the forums here last fall, but I cannot for the life of me figure out how I logged in. After sending password recovery e-mails to both my e-mail addresses, I finally just made a new account. So..um, hi again!
Annnnnnyway, I wanted to at least attempt an image for the travel theme. Anyway, here it is so far:
I came up with this because I asked myself, "What would happen if you stuck a chinchilla in knight's armor?" And then I thought the chinchilla should be riding a llama. And then I thought he should be with a wild cavy riding a vicuna and they should be Don Quixote and Sancho Panza. Not that I've read Don Quixote (yet), but I saw that episode of Wishbone about it (#old).
Thank you both for your feedback! I was going for it being the father figure, but it's probably best not to have any confusion... I kind of like the idea of simplifying the image and just making it be the lady and the boat. Maybe I was overthinking things! :) Thanks again...
Hi, everbody! It’s been a long time since i’ve posted a work in progress for a monthly challenge. I’ve been so busy lately with all of the school requirements and stuff.
Before i share to you my sketch for this month’s challenge i’ve got an announcement....
Thank youto everyone who has been a part of my journey.
Anyway for this month’s challenge, here is my sketch. I’m not sure if it will win anything but i just had to draw this. It’s hilarious for me. I’m planning to create at least 2 more illustrations featuring this snowman character.
The stor is that this snowman and his wife have always wanted to go to the tropics for a vacation but each time the transpotation companies always don’t allow `them fo r obvious reasons. That’s why this snowman comes up wi
