WIP. Love yourself and love your dessert. Critique/suggestions please.

  • Hi all, this is my third entry for the monthly contests.

    The idea here (if it isn't obvious) is that this woman is happy and loves herself regardless of those around her being coupled together.

    Any general feedback and/or tips would be great.


  • Hello Rotub! I like your drawing but I am not convinced by the concept idea. This is the feminist in me saying : why should it be a lady sitting there and not a man "in love with himself"? To me, your drawing can potentially call for controversial discussion 😉

  • @Julia true, this did cross my mind. Thanks for the feedback!

    @rotub You could always add another table with a guy alone eating the same dessert and they notice each other being single and enjoying the same thing. You know Love at first sight type of thing. I would also keep the couple's tables as well to sell the point that they are there alone.

  • @rotub i would exaggerate the cake a bit more, if they gonna feast on a cake, give them a cake! Embeleish it! I’d also add some things around the restaurant maybe some valentines day things like hearts and stuff, perhaps a couple in the back being escorted to their table by a waiter and they’re staring at the cake to fill that empty space? The only thing that told me the other diners are on a date were the romantic candles. Theres a lot of negative space up above the scene too.
