Line Art or Model: Cut & Shut

Cut the middle out, as Goro suggested. That's all for now, back soon :)

Beautiful colors- you are blessed with a great colour sense! One thing I was considering though- do you really need the fish on the left? The triangular composition might be stronger if you didn't have them there, then you could focus on the farmer and the fish, with the farm leading your eye around. Just an idea. I think what you have right now is beautiful.

amazing mood! but i can't figure out if it's a rifle or a fishing pole. my suggestion is to make it more clear so that stupid ppl like me won't have problems reading that

This definitely ranks in my top favorite concepts right now. You always use such great colors, Simon. I dig it. I think the edit you applied, as per the suggestion of Goro, helped a lot. It feels much more unified now. The composition with the fish does still feel a bit difficult for me, which doesn't make sense since it's such a simple design really.... but oh well. I don't know what I'd toy with in order to make that flow differently. Not that it matters a whole lot - I know you're not pushing overly hard on it in respects of it being a quick fun one

As far as quick fun pieces go? I think it's snazzy.

paperclip - Cheers, although I admit to getting the purple / orange / green colour scheme idea from a photo I found so this time it didn't all come from my head I know what you mean about the smaller fish, I've already subdued their colours but probably what I'll do later is make them small and bring them closer to the farmer. Thanks for the advice.

fellah - Cheers. At the moment it's just a black line, it will become a fishing rod, honest. I'll be adding it last of all (I'm not looking forward to painting the fishing line - curves are not my forte).

Yrindale - Thanks v much. I'll make a few changes later and hopefully, when everything's done, the focus of the piece should be more clear. Note I say "hopefully"

Vahn - Now that's a good question. I've always had a thing for flying fish, ever since I saw some film when I was a kid (was it Reanimator? I can't recall)

Steampunk - Cheers, glad you like it

beelow - I knew you'd be here somewhere! Good to see you, good luck!

draldede - Thanks a lot, good luck to you too

icedeyes - Cheers

TomGodfrey - Glad you think so, it makes a change from some of my recent stuff that has been a bit dark!

MrFreeman - Cheers, good to see you around, best of luck
