I thought it was a real big change in style if you were to be the same one.
I guess you know him but just in case. He's been one of my favorites of all time:


Hope you like it if you didn't know him.

Nevertheless, great work you have up there.

Juan Jimenez is a very common name in Spain and other spanish speaking countries (as I think you know due to your name). As common as John Smith can be. Also notice that THE OTHER JUAN JIMENEZ is not spanish but argentinian.

I like very much the style and overall look of the illustration. My only crit is that the main character is a bit overexposed for my taste (as someone said before).

Thank you all guys!

First time in 2D choice award gallery, i'm really excited! Didn't expect it...
No, i'm not that Juan Gimenez. Note that his surname begins with letter G, but it's a nice coincidence, and he's actually argentinian.

About the crits:
- the mouse is too bright, but in part cuz i did it purposely. It could be better integrated in the image though.
- i already 'fixed' those tangents, and the 'new' version is available at my blog omegus.blogspot.com, but you won't find much differences on it

Thank you again for the feedback!

Good Job ,i really like the colors, but for me the face of "rat" (or rodent) needs more shadow.
Because the contrast is too-much intensify between face and background !

I'm sorry in advance for my approximately english!

The bottom of the giant ape and those points on the wall are barely touching in various places. (plus I'm not sure why he's holding that chain)

Finally the spear flying above the mouse towards the screen is forming a bit of a tangent with the ape's loin cloth, plus the value/colors are similar. (and it looks like the ape is looking at the spear as opposed to the mouse)

It's so amazing, but my eye keeps going to those spots as they break up the flow a bit. Otherwise I'm just blown away, I love the rendering, poses, faces, just great work all over.

your gallery is pathetic to be giving anyone critques
