Hey, assclowns, "This didn't take ten hours" is not a review. That's a facebook post. There's a 12,000 character limit for reviews for a reason.
Anyway, while the colors of the subject are pleasant enough, there are quite a few problems here.
The biggest one is the blurry edges. The edges of objects lack definition, and are rather bumpy.
I would recommend not playing with opacity til you have the base shades and tones down. Otherwise, you get this rather flat effect, as if somebody put dirt on a paper cutout. Trying to put down base shades and tones by layering opacity is not a good idea, generally.
While on the subject of shades and tints, shadows have more color than a straight grey. Shadows outdoors are blue, while indoors they are orangey. Implementing these colors into your shadows makes a drawing look a lot prettier.
With the grass, the way you drew it, this looks like it's somebody's lawn. If this was meant to be a shot of a natural enviornment, the grass should be in more varied lengths, with different plants interspersed with it. Not a veritable garden of different plant species mind you, just some variety. It makes a scene look a lot more alive.
The clouds also ought to be a lot more solid looking. I've never seen Cumulus clouds appear blurry to me. Unless they're cirrus, put some definition into those clouds!
A more competent artist would have a lot more to say in better ways, but that's all I have to say for now.
Although with the detail poured into the facial features, I think that the style used to color the hair looks a tad out of place.
Is this the Michael that does Rage Quit for Rooster Teeth?
Yes it is.
I don't enjoy doing hair much. It's easy to over detail it. Better to leave it a little less detailed so it's not so distracting.
I'll have a glass of Sparkling Octopus
I really like the Octopus and everything it's associated with. I think the background really doesn't match it, though. I can tell they're supposed to be out of focus, but the style difference with the background objects isn't as appealing as the mollusk in the glass with a boat. I think that would really come alive if its background was as meticulously detailed as everything else.
So that's my two cents. Great job.
Yah, I was bothered by that background as well. Although I can't think of any other background that would fit. I even had help from Tony. Thank you for reviewing.
I wish you could have colored it, though...
I find it odd that it has four "fingers" on its right front paw but three on every other one. Is that intended?
The bottom of the tail has an odd square shade fill-in that bothers me. That's about all that bothers me.
The expression is priceless. I recommend coloring this in, or at least putting it up in the collaboration thread.
Oops, suppose to be hind feet or what ever you call the back end of the feet is.
Sorry that it doesn't has color, didn't had the last minute time to try and make it what I really want it but I may go back and color it ^,^d or put it in the collaboration thread to see how it'll turn out >3>.
Most part of the smoothing are there but some a rigid, like the tail, heh heh befor I knew it time was closing up for me to clean it some more.
Otakus could have existed!
After all, you had Astro Boy and Star Blazers.
Yes, but those shows had hardly any feminine touch to them.
Just gonna say what I notice.
Her left forearm is thicker than her upper arm region, which is rather odd. Also, the scarf thing looks odd in that it seems to get pulled into her hair and clip onto her neck, instead of wrapping round the neck.
Other than that, pretty good, I guess.
Lol thanks. Yeah I think this picture was more focused on color than on the drawing itself. I agree with what you said lol. :D
I sure hope my ears don't turn into miniature heads.
Nothing really looks off to me. Nice work.
Soldier looks ready to mongle your cock
This is honestly the scariest thing I have ever seen with two faces.
