Artist Description
ElementorCookie one of my chars in a story i'm writing... experimental colouring again ^^' i think it turned out quite good =3
dano 2007-07-08 18:56:49 Looks cute, but if you want your character to pop out, use a deep sea blue in the background.
ElementorCookie 2007-07-08 19:01:08 she's sitting in a tree... blue would make her pop out, but it would also make the picture rather strange because trees are green ;3
dano 2007-07-08 21:40:22 Not true. The color of the character is red. To make red not blend in with the background (and not have a christmas theme) you need the color that is on the opposite side of the color wheel, and there are not leaves on the branch she's sitting on, it could be fall. Sure you can have green, in photoshop, use your selector tool and select shapes that look like leaves or what would look like green clouds. Look at the comics you have, no comic artist gets by with just drawing a cool character, you need to have a little less than equal background to balance it out. Don't get me wrong I see your side of the logic, your illustration is good, and your color work is off to a great start, keep up the good work. P.S. You don't have to be so defensive, for years people told my art was crap, but I got over the frustration and now I can learn from every critque.
Def Character 2007-07-09 05:11:13 Try working in layers to get more control over the BG you choose ^^
Wicked_Lady 2007-07-09 05:31:33 Hey, I really like it :) Nice experiment. And don't mind about dano, he doesn't know the colors of the color wheel, it seems. Green does happen to be the oppisite color of red. If e thinks it's not, well.. XD just ignore. I like the char, is she the one that's gonna die?
dano 2007-07-09 23:37:32 I have a color wheel hanging next to my computer!
ElementorCookie 2007-07-10 07:11:25 okay calm down now, i know i need to work on my colours, anything about the character itself that's wrong that i should know? ^^'
dano 2007-07-10 08:55:25 The character is fine; nice big round butt, nice curves, cheast area is around the right size.

Heyhey everybody, it's been a long time (as usual) I'm sick at home now, so I have some time to draw. It's a pic I wanted to do since autumn started, never had the time.
I hope to do some more, but school and work are kind of in the way.
So, any critics or comments?
very hard
just the sketch work that went with the other picture.
