critique - storytelling problem?



  • So this might be it... the colors are laid and that is the final touch for me.

    any comments on that before I call it done? I basically am, but I would like to hear some opinions on the colors first !! πŸ™‚

    anyways this whole process was really long so far and loved working on that and I am so thankful for every advice and comments I've got for it so far. It is a really supportive group here... ❀

    Personally, I love those colors. It has an old-fashioned sense about it that hearkens back to old-school illustration and their printing processes back then--the texture/noise you've applied to the color is right on the money!! It really communicates a sense of elegant simplicity and straightforward storytelling somehow. I love it!! Gorgeous!!



  • @Jonas-Zavacky This really turned out great!! The colors, values and composition are really working for me and I love the sketchy, storybook style. Looks amazing



  • @Jonas-Zavacky I love this. I’ll own that the style of this one is much more to my taste. I love the colors and the sketchy line work (I’m totally envious). But aside from that, this image much more tells a story than the earlier beautiful one. Score!

    I agree with what others have said β€” beautiful line work, and the colors are perfect with that style. It certainly conveys a story because of the feeling of anticipation you get from the character which makes me want to know where he’s been, and what good things are awaiting his arrival at that house. Wonderful work.



  • @Jonas-Zavacky Oh man, this is gorgeous, and it really is a vast improvement from the start! I can see it working beautifully in a children's book. Echoing the others: I would just keep all the sketchy lines in just as they are. They add a lot of character. The colours are working so well.

    Thank you! πŸ˜‡
