Hi everyone, the prompt was somehow really challenging this month. No original concept here, just tried to experiment with style and colors in short time (not sure how it worked).
Hi, here is my take on this month halloween prompt
Hi, here my try on this month prompt with a very rainy vacation..
It was supposed to be fun, but Lisa didnt really expect her robot to be a board game winning machine.
Hi, here is my picture for this month prompt. Take care everyone!
They used to call them the "Ink fairies". They striked in the foggy nights. After numerous succesfull "shoppings" for ink supplies police finally managed to stop them. Thanks to a local insomiac Ellie Dickins who also appeared to be an amateur photographer.
Hi Joshua! The image is very sweet. I like the grandma character a lot.
I think the biggest improvement would be better value structure. Just more contrast and better silhoullettes, value consistency within bigger shapes, clear edges will help a lot. Comparing adjacent colors : is it darker/lighter , is it warmer / cooler color?
Maybe just thinking, what time of a day, weather and light condition you want, might help. And get reference for it if needed. To me it feels like there is a wet, foggy weather in the park, which doesnt corespond with the storybeat.
The limited color pallette is a nice idea, but the colors feel a bit incosistent for instance in the girls hair (i suspect you used red to attract more attention).
Some other ideas to try:
Some experimenting with poses (grandma's more opened arms; grandpa more next to grandma, maybe kneeing, waiting for hug...; the kids feet make quite a tangent there, just showing a little of girls face)?
Creating visually clearer path of running characters with big bush shapes?
Putting the grandparents characters a bit up hill with overexposed bloomed light behind them to make them more heroic?
A little scribble to see what i mean
