Hi everyone!
This is my first time here at CGSociety.
Nice to meet you all!

So, this is my ideia for the challenge: A toddler needs to loose his diapers. Outside from the security of his diapers everything looks terrifying. In the end of his long journey he will need to face the always hungry.... Potty-Monster!

Colour test

Hi, Thalita, welcome to the challenge!
Great concept, this made me laugh out loud.
I hope you'll get to experiment with the coloring more... maybe you could try something that emphasizes the child and the toilet more than the diaper? You certainly have plenty of time!

Good luck!

03 March 2006, 06:21 AM
Very cute Thalita, nice drawing and idea.

Muito bacana ver uma brasileira aqui. Parabens. Vou acompanhar de perto

Bjs e boa sorte.

Walrus, thank you. Good advice.
I started the coloring, I'm working the baby first.
I'm still new at digital stuff, so I'm going slow... I'll post another color test today, hoping for everyone's help!

I'm gald you all found the concept funny! That was my point. Thank you!

Sturmkim, the baby wants to do something, but in the moment he is thinking about never to pee again in his life, because he is too afraid of the toilet... He won't be able to stick to his plan for too long, tough... :)

Schaal, is always good to see a compratiot!
Are you on the chalenge too?

03 March 2006, 10:44 AM (

I just started to color, from the toddler...

I ask for advices from you all, because as I said I'm still new with digital tools.

03 March 2006, 11:08 AM
Haha! Awsome idea. This looks great!

Good luck with the challenge!

03 March 2006, 11:24 AM

03 March 2006, 12:43 PM
Very cute indeed. I like the idea. You started just fine with the color. I'm curious to see the progress of this!! :)

03 March 2006, 12:43 PM
nice idea.... have fun

03 March 2006, 01:06 PM
mmm...very funny...hehe

looking forward to see how this is handled...i think it will be a hard slog bet if you pull it off it should work out excellent!!

the idea/concept is very sound..


03 March 2006, 01:09 PM
I think you can capture the intensity better, with a closer perspective of the baby's face with a more imposing toilet seat in the background

03 March 2006, 05:17 PM
Schaal, is always good to see a compratiot!
Are you on the chalenge too?

Kisses and good luck again.

however.. to give the baby a more cuteness feeling.. what about trying to make the eyes bigger ??

03 March 2006, 06:53 PM

I will keep my eyes close on this one.
Good Luck!:thumbsup:

03 March 2006, 08:04 PM
Nice concept, cool idea and a fine probability of getting the job done. This "veronese" girl is a real runner! I bet my chips on you, Thalita! Now, KEEP THIS PEN MOVING!!!

03 March 2006, 10:30 PM
funny one...
great start thalita , looks pretty cute and funny...
looking forward for the coloring , ur doing good digitally, keep going on... :thumbsup:

03 March 2006, 12:31 PM (

I'm sorry I'm going slowly but this part of colouring is what I find difficult.
Those are my basic colours for the landscape.
Than I'll mix the landscape with bathroom tiles and walls. Still don't know how to do it, but I'll try...

03 March 2006, 12:44 PM
Thanks to everyone!
I'm so glad everyone is enjoying!

Sorry I take so long to post, but that's because I don't have internet at home.

03 March 2006, 01:10 PM
hi Thalita, I really like your idea too, and the colors are looking good so far. Keep it up! :)

03 March 2006, 07:56 AM
What a lovely idea. Way to go, you´re doing fine.

03 March 2006, 08:17 PM
Keep going, girl.
Up to here it looks fine. You are doing good with digital colors.
I wonder how are you going to do the transition from the bathroom tiles to the path that leads to the "monster".


03 March 2006, 02:20 AM
Ha! that is too much! hahahahahaha! LOL....

keep after this one this is just toooooo good of an idea to not finish out...


and also your Artistic Style is really amazing too!

03 March 2006, 08:33 AM
Clever idea, and really lovely vibe. It's great to see something a bit different. Looking forward to seeing the result!

03 March 2006, 01:27 AM
Thanks everyone!

I started working on the bathroom tiles, I'll post it here tomorrow.
I still don't know for sure how I will make the transition from the bathroom to the landscape made of imagination.... we'll see....

03 March 2006, 02:47 PM (

I started working on the tiles, as I said.
When I finish this basic colouring of them I will start trying to merge them with the landscape of imagination (I don't have a clue about how I will do this....).

03 March 2006, 05:24 PM
nice concept

03 March 2006, 07:20 PM
The young Thalita had a dream.....

very cute and original concept, I love the baby's expression...

Keep Working !

03 March 2006, 05:29 PM
Maybe your should use a fading effect to make the transition...

Try different things.

The tiles... are they going to be all in different tones?

03 March 2006, 05:26 PM
beautiful thalitha, :bounce: it looks good... :thumbsup:

04 April 2006, 09:47 PM
So funny, so cute. Excellent work so far Thalina. You capture the childs vulnerability and emotion nicely. The color should be fine as long as you keep in mind you values, warm and cool colors and points of interest.

Can't wait to see it done. :thumbsup:
