  • Super cute! One observation--Rudolph is a bit hard to read--his nose at first glance is like a third eye (both my children and I were confused and thought Rudolph was a three eyed creature). I think his eyes need to be more flush into his face--and his nose might need to be bigger as well--but I think the nose will read as a nose if the eyes are changed. I also think that you should find the midline of Rudolph's face and head and figure out how the form of his head works with that midline--and how the eyes would look as they sit on the sphere in a three quarter's view. That's something Will Terry talks about in one of his drawing videos. Anyway I hope this makes sense--I wish I had the technology to do a drawover to show what I mean.

    I love your simple, cute style.



  • Thanks anthemsweet. Your comments are so helpful. Thanks to your children too as they are great critics! I didn't see thet third eye but now you mention it I will resize the nose, also with colour his red nose will become clearer. I will also check the midline of Rudolph's face and work on the form.

    Thank you :)
