    @Naters-Calderone It reads so nicely, and my eye moves through it effortlessly. Unfortunately I don’t have any critiques to offer, I don’t think I would change a thing. The characters are adorable!

    @Naters-Calderone I always enjoy your work! Only thing that popped into my mind for this is scale. Possibly having the pig be a different scale than the rooster.



  • I agree with Kevin. Also, what partially makes your picture flow so well are the hills in the background that lead up to the pig's eyes, and then the eyes point you to the rooster's face, which then leads you back down the hill-line to the rooster's foot then across to the mouse's eyes. So, if you change the size of the pig and/or rooster you may want to keep that in mind to keep the flow. Great job! I can't wait to see how it turns out!



  • @Naters-Calderone It looks like you may have used three fonts? I'm not sure but the text feels off, like there is an inconsistency. I like the design but might change the font on the sign. It feels a teeny bit off and maybe not fast reading enough.



  • @ThisKateCreates @avfarrar Thanks for the input, I totally agree with you. Fortunately the text is just a place holder for the clients clarity, I won't actually be adding the info text, the space on the wooden board will be left blank for the playhouse to fill in.



  • @Kevin-Longueil Thanks. Now that you mention it I think the thing bothering me about the the scale. I'll make the kitten larger and maybe the three characters will fit together better.
