I decided to go with D, and I just launched into it. I'm hoping folks can tell me if things are pulling focus and interest. I"m worried there's too much texture in the tree, perhaps, and I need to do something a bit more substantial to the path he's standing on...
@aprilshin I decided to change the boy's facial expression a bit, and have him looking upward with a "sorta" grin... I think that was stronger than the "I'm lonely" vibe I think I was going for... Does that make things a bit clearer? Or at least less complicated?
@chrisaakins same to you but there were lots of great entries I was surprised didn’t make it, I guess when you have a 150 to go through you’re gonna have to make some difficult decisions. To next month
@MarksByMallory thanks! yes I do know of the classes too that are linked to all the old critiques but I’m trying not to look actually I don’t really want to be influenced in any way from them but at the same it would be nice to see what’s already been done!
@Kayla-Groening this composition is much more successful! Love the footprints and the improved scale. Something to mention that you may have already fixed: if you're changing her expression, remember that the eyes and eyebrows will change with the shape of the mouth. Try smiling and frowning with your eyes at the same time -- it feels impossible to do AND you'll make the most hilarious faces!
hi everyone! So I was going to submit this piece as seen below but @rubeda made a great point about adding smoke effects so I decided to add a last minute mist and I really like the new look. This is it for the medusa piece. I'm tired and really stressed but so relieved it's over. thanks for all the help everyone!
@Coreyartus thank you, it was still blurry even in the new window, but I eventually figured something out though it did give me a run for my money! With a combination of resizing canvases and duplications and little tricks from all the helpful red rabbits, I think it’s all squared away!
@Kayla-Groening So my initial approach with this illustration was to just visually connect 2020 and 2021 and visually differentiate the two years by making 2020 fairly descriptive and defined and making 2021 simple and undefined in terms of detail,
I was just thinking about the visual interpretation and wanted to get an idea of what people see when they look at my illustration, I wanted to leave it open ended and let people see what they see and so far so good , I've gotten a bunch of responses and none of em have been the same, and it's great to see what people think of when they visually see the two years!
@xin-li said in Our SVS Virtual Studio DECEMBER 2020:
@VeronicaMui It is a challenge created by Scott Mccloud: a Challenge to make 24 pages of comic in one day.
@Braden-Hallett Funny coincidence: Lately I have been thinking about a 24h comics I did some years back, thinking about turning it into a short graphic novel. I have not draw any comic for years, would love to pick it up again.
Nice! 24 hour comics are always really neat. There's something about being forced to write and illustrate it all in that little window that really makes them something special!
Nice! I just watched a character design class on SVS (forget the actual name, but it was taught by Will Terry and Jake Parker), and in it, Jake stressed using 3/4 view a lot with character design, as that allows you to see most of the character and get a good read on them. For those two poses you're having trouble with, they are both head-on view -- what if you tried them 3/4 and see if that helps?
