Chicken Chicken

Rated 3 / 5 stars

Brush work is good...

...the image still looks a bit flat...and not 3 dimensional.

you might be able to add a couple of extra shading layers in photoshop on top of this to help bring the image out into space a bit...

hope that was helpful

Thanks for the review!
It being flat is one of the biggest recurring problems I encounter in my recent drawings. I think it has to do with being really focused on the drawing, which makes you see a lot more difference then there actually is, or than someone else will see. I sometimes made a duplicate layer on "overlay" blending mode, but I try to keep away from doing that.
Thanks for the advice!

I love Yoda...

...but his seems down right out of character for him, using the force in a display of power to pick the mushroom...

...the lighting is awesome though :D

Actually he is encourging growth of the younger mushrooms to replace the ones he already picked. Besides Lucas kept Yoda in a lot of mystery so who is to say what he would or would not do.

Looks Time Consuming...

Gotta give you props for the amount of detail, not just in the colored works, but also the pencil drawings...

I get the feeling of Video Game Art or Concept Art going on, not quite at the level that you normally see for such things, but keep at it, it's the only way to improve.

...It would be nice to know the back story or more about this character to asses his personality posses, but perhaps I missed that in another of your submissions in which it might be stated...

hope that was helpful...

It's a good pencil sketch...

...It's a pretty good pencil sketch. Personality and Character do come out in the drawing, I feel like you could push it a bit more, with exception of the face seems a bit sketchy.

...I also get the underlying first impression of "Western"...could be your color choice as it kind of resembles a wanted poster theme, and the dress is both time appropriate and character appropriate, like he's a card dealer.

...I know it would take away the dramatic effect of his white eye's which is what you're obviously going for, but he's gotta see...pupils?

...All in all good drawing, but challenge yourself to push it further and you'll find that you become better at a faster rate...settling for "good enough" won't get you any better :)

It's not too bad...

Normally I am against the overuse of gradients...but because she's metallic it sort of works for the illustration...the breast seem a bit high on the chest, but that may be due to the fact you wanted to show the bass and treble bars...

I like the hair best in this image...


Occluded responds:

Thanks. Yeah lately I've tried to get away from the soft brushes in photoshop. Even when things are supposed to be smooth.

I was really proud of the idea for the hair.

Nice color work...

...might be a good idea to incorporate your signature or something hidden in the image on something like this to identify it as your work.

...the only complaint is the texture on the trash can, while the coloring suggests metallic, Oblina looks more shiny than the trash can...

...the lower boil seems a bit out of place as some have suggested, but perhaps because it's not translucent, perhaps play with it's opacity and coloring a bit more.

Don't skip out on important details...

I find myself sometimes not taking my own advice on skipping out on important details...having spent much time on a piece sometimes makes you a tad lazy on certain things about it...

getting to the point, you spent some time shading the body and doing the color tones...yet the ground shadow which should have just as much attention seemed rushed. It should somewhat emulate the mass above it, yet it's a messy monochromatic blob totally taking away from the overall composition of the piece.

Very true, I never REALLY finished it. Devotion isn't my thing. Thanks for the comment!

You can do better...

I'm not entirely sure your intended message by composition is shining through here...looks a bit experimental with repeating brush patterns. There doesn't seem to be any purpose other than complete abstract and even as an abstract it's unbalanced.


Zake1 responds:

yes, it is indeed abstract art. I'm not a cartoonist like yourself.

And yeah I do think its a bit unbalanced, i couldn't decide if i wanted the white there, so i just went with it.

thanks for the feedback

Color Compoisiton Is Fantastic...

...This is a fantastic color piece. I like the fact that you don't see any grey's or black's used anywhere in the piece...

...It has a very painter feel to it, despite it's vectorness...

Time And Effort Well Spent

...This is a really cool background piece...perspective is slightly off, not sure if it's designed to be a background that pans seeing as you have 2 vanishing points, 1 the horizon the sun is on and 2 the one where the trees disappear near the ground...

...The sun is a bit distracting as a whole piece, but if you break it up as if it were a panning shot, then it fits in quite nicely...

...Hope that was helpful...

LeafWorthy responds:

Hahah, funny. The thing is, it was designed as a panning shot, from the top to the bottom, but then I sadly found out that it lagged terribly once played in the .swf, so I changed it to a still shot (see "2 - Story of Khale"). Thanks for the crit!
