Just a small update.
First, I hid her lack of underwear
I also tried to narrow her eyes a little. Not sure this is better: I find that she looks somewhat weird now.
I started painting the boat. Well, it’s actually almost finished, just lacking some little tweakings and details (moss?). Tell me what you think. Thank you
Just a small update.
Vahn: thank you Rim corrected
Poshspice: thank you
Unfortunately I don’t do traditionnal animation but I really wish I could. Animation artists are a huge influence though
I see what you mean about her expression. This is an option I’ve been contemplating before I drew the girl, and I ultimately decided to go with something more like complicity. But I’ll give a try at your idea, just to see what comes out of it.
Walrus & Arc80: thank you for the comments
About the underwear… well, this is not something I actually gave much attention, but now that you mention it I can’t help thinking you’re right. I added a piece of fabric to hide this part and this turned out okay I think.
Virtuoso, the1st_angel: thanks a lot for the cool comments
really love yor use of colour, its lovely. I also really like your linework. The concept is brilliant. I agree, tweaking the eyes has left a wierd expression, I personally preffered the earlier one.
Keep going though, its coming along nicely.
Check out mine and let me know what you think : [http://www.cgtalk.com/showthread.php?t=234420](http://showthread.php/?t=234420) All feedback very appreciated!!
Nah, she looks cute. love your little redhead. specially her large pirate clothes rock. maybe, just maybe go for bigger gloves to keep the oversize style of her clothing, u know thos musketeer style of gloves… in manner of that clothing style, how bout a nice corsage?
as for the anatomical problem of the eyes, i dont think the eyes are the problem, mybe just move the nose/lips block slightly left, to refit the middleline of the face according to the positioning of her eyes? and… the ear slightly right so that should solve the headproportion troubles.
All suggestions are of course just my own point of view and a simple matter of taste. keep on rocking, love your piece!!!
ooh, what a nice style you have! and great colouring on the boat! this is such an amazing pic. its just so alive. :applause: i feel as if im suppose to go in the direction she is telling me to go. but i dont wanna, cause then i wont be able to see the pic anymore. hehe.
yeah! finally something different from naked ladies and big muscles monsters!!
ca dechire pas mal ca^^ c mimi comme tout et c super joli
en tout cas j’adore ce dessin. j’ai hate de le voir fini
allez hop au boulot!
I love your style. I can’t wait until i see the finished piece. It is good to see a piece that is not so dark compared to many of the other entries i’ve seen.
Hey Crowly, i view you submission time ago and always want to found your thread again for post something, on the first sigth when i saw your illustration i was very impressed, i like a lot your line and style, but know i must to put in my list your coloring, nice work, i hope you will win something.
sorry if i don’t say more about the concept, maybe have more time to see your entire challenge soon.
My best wishes:thumbsup:
haha!Love it.Looks so rich and fun.Stylin too.:applause:
Beautiful image! I love the colors and stile too…!
Great cartoon style, color use and design. I just love it!
Maybe add some wind in her hair?
This is such a brilliantly fun piece to look at. So full of energy and magical wonder… the kid in me giggles every time I look at it. Amazing stuff. I also thought you MUST be an animator (I see a very similar ‘style’ in alot of the animators I work with)… great character design!
Keep it up.
This is not exactly the final format of the image, and many things are still in the work. The sky and clouds, and the water in particular. And the little lamp too.
Some close-ups of the parts I’ve been working on. I’m pretty happy with the boat and the blade of the sword (which still requires some tweakings but is mostly okay I think).
On the other hand, I’m not really sure I’m going in the right direction with the flag and Octo’s mouth, so if you have any comment…
I still have lots of things to do, but hopefully I’ll be done by the end of the week.
demonicoz, Mordalles, yznah, Kalomus, Is-boset, Johnlittle, kornel, artjunkie: thanks a lot to all of you. Such a cool feedback is really appreciated.
the1st_angel: you’re sooo right about the ear and the way I could modify the whole face. Thanks a lot for the advices
And for the huge gloves… well, I do like huge gloves, believe me. This is something I tried at the beginning, but it didn’t really fit in the composition.
Art2: that’s a great suggestion. I feel stupid not to have thought about this before. Thanks a lot!
No more critzs anymore I just love the style and the simplicity of it
go ahead! thats will be great!
I cant wait for the whole image!
This is one of my favorites in the challenge, hope it goes well for you, thx for your input on my picture.:eek:
Looks great! Can’t wait to see the final image.
Allez zou, j’écris en français. Sory for the non-french readers, i’m a bit lazy this evening.
Bonsoir Guillaume. J’adore ton image qui me fait bien bien rigoler. Quel maîtrise dans le style cartoon - cartoon bien de chez nous, oserais-je dire !- Personnellement, je verrais bien un petit cacatoes ébouriffé dans la mâture…
