Here are her OCs, Momo and Mewchi, making a strawberry cake. I don't really know anyone who uses iron cast ovens like this, but I wanted to draw one, so...
Momo and Mewchi belong to
I hope you like it!
For anyone interested, I will be announcing a 200 Watcher Kiriban whenever the time rolls around, so keep an eye out!
here on behalf of
Your picture stood out to me for it's humor and story telling. I immediately have at least an idea of who these two characters are without having to read their OC sheets.
Your color application is very structured and it gives this picture depth which the majority of cartoonishly drawn pictures simply lack. your shading is visible, consistent, maybe could do with a bit higher contrast, but that is up to personal taste
I'm afraid I can't say too much about proportions or anatomy of the two characters since cartoons play around with both to accentuate and exaggerate. But what I can say is that they look cohesive.
The kitty lady and her kitty look like they would belong in the same show (or comic XD). One thing you may need to keep an eye on though is readability. It took me a minute to figure out what part belonged were on the left side of her body and the right lower back with the bent hand. One way to fix this would be to up the resolution of your picture, if your drawing programm allows you to.
And something that I find very hard to draw - a mess XD I love the little mess they made with the eggs on the counter. It adds live and believability to it. Maybe one could have even ended up on the floor XD or something XD If there was one wish I had, it would be to see more spilled a bit in that area XD
anyways, I really love this image and I think you did a great job and what makes this even better is it being a gift
Hey, from ProjectComment.
Let me start by saying I love your style. The lines, lanky proportions, overlayed textures convey a feeling of a modern western animation. Your skewed perspective and crosshatched shadowing really adds to the overall environment/ feeling.
As I stated earlier, I love the skewed almost 2-dimensional feel you have in your perspective. For the most part, your perspective feels really consistent and adds to the vibe of the picture. Just a couple of suggestions to increase that consistency: There are a few things stand out and distract from the overall experience. The top of the book seems a little high, even considering the volume of the pages. At that angle, it would probably fit more appropriately if the right page more closely matched the one on the left. The flour sack works really well, probably because it's next to the wall, but the strawberry container is a little high in angle for its position. You could probably remedy this by changing the angle to be more similar to that of the pan (or bag) that the gray cat it poking out of, since it's closer to the same point in terms of depth in the scene. The glass's angle is close enough to the remainder of the picture, even if you tweaked the strawberry container, it probably wouldn't need to be altered to still match. One last thing on angles- the upper left corner's cabinet is off just enough to be distracting as well.
The shadows are nice, I like the line-y feel they have to them along the edges. I can see you put time into the shadow of the character, as it fits the proportions nicely. I would suggest that the shadow of the character's top half would fall closer to the character on the counter, only because they're that much closer to the counter-top than the cabinets below. You might even angle the shadow of the legs slightly counterclockwise to better indicate that the legs and hips get progressively closer to the cabinets, since the character is in fact leaning against them.
Color-wise, while the character is the center of attention, the colors tend to distract negatively. Specifically, the colors of the hair and apron. I think the blue and yellow, even the orange of the tail tends to fit the overall unsaturated earth tones in the remainder of the picture. If the hair was the same color (or closer to that) of the tail, and the apron the same as the strawberry container, I think that would help the continuity of the image as a whole.
All in all, this is really nice work, and a lovely prize for a kiriban. I'm sure the winner absolutely loved it, because it's clear how much effort you put into it.
Indeed, your art style is one of those one rarely sees, at least with the amount of dedication i see. I also noticed that you made a greate job with Momos`s OC. I dont really know this character so i hope i nail something about her... A kitty with a love for strawberries. Back to your art, i see that you have managed to make everything your own way, shadows, textures, objects of the background, and many other details. This is how you make sure you are leaving your mark on everything, good!!.
I might not be able to point out mistakes ( if there`s any) so I`m going to tell you what else i see. So i noticed that on many parts of the drawing there`s this lines that go all over the floor and furniture, it´s interesting how each line has a complementing color for the object it is over, unique to your syle but visually, not so much, at least that s my opinion, you are free to follow the sugestions, it´s your art after all.
I will like to know how you made some of the textures for the kitchen table( the one she is leaning on) I´m intrested on how you made it or where to get such textures.
So, this is an amazing pice of art, keep it up!! And have a good one.
I find royalty free images of textures that I think would suit the object, then I put the imagine in my Paint.Net program (like Photoshop for babbies who have no money). I mess around with a few of the effects, like blurring parts of it, making it look more like an oil painting, and so on, until I get something I think goes well with the scene. Then I'll put it in my drawing program, outline some parts, change the hue and colors, put it back in my Paint.Net to use the "Unfocus" effect on it so it doesn't look as sharp (it's distracting otherwise), and then I'll put it overtop of the piece on a new layer and use the free deform to get a shape/perspective that makes sense. It's a bit of work, but overall less so than hand-drawing it and I can also get more interesting textures that way.
It's quite a process using my two programs, but it works. Hope I explained it well enough! Free free to ask if you've anymore questions! ^^
That's the only way I think you can get a decent not so legal copy of your program.
Actually, let me do a little research
I love all the detail you've put into the kitchen, it looks super cool
Thanks for doing this for me~
It was no problem at all. I had a lot of fun drawing this! ^^
Since Momo is usually drawn in a bright environment, I thought it'd be interesting to
see her drawn in a more... "Grunge" art style. I think you pulled it off very well, with
a good balance between the two!
I think I have a problem. XD
