Hi Jonatha! Nice concept! I don't know anything about machinery or much about cross-hatching (so they both seem good to me).
I had a little trouble actually finding the right arm at first--my brain was trying to read his suspenders and belt as his other arm (but I also really need to be sleeping right now, so there's that...). The lines for that arm seem to be thinner/lighter than the rest of the body and seem to blend in better with the machinery, so maybe if those lines were thickened a little and the connection to his body made more clear. But once I saw the arm and the hand, I got his mood and the tapping of his finger right away.
Great character design! His expression reads very clear
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?
Thank you all for your kindly advice, it is fun to have others eyes to see.
I think kind-a got a little fixated on aspects of technique, and if I'm honest, that tree image on conformed to flag was the impetus for the work (at least partly). @TwiggyT @Miriam @RHirsch @Sofie_designed Thank you
From a quick image search, it looks like the Skottie Young style also usually has the eyes a little lower on the face. In some drawings, the eyes have a little bit of a diagonal slant & are slightly pointed at the corners--esp. the inner corner of the eyes, but in other images they are more rounded ovals.
@artwithashley - you found the easter egg yay I needed to bring them out of the trash and give them a new owner (damn kids with smartphones!)
@lenwen - thank you! I put the final piece on the contest page. Hope you like it
@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).
Any feedback is welcome.
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
