I thought i’d post the image again with the back story. Sorry i didn’t get this posted last night. I’m gonna edit this post and reply to all you folk who’ve been so splendid to me!
Monsitj, stefan, Tranchefeux: Thankyou for the words!
Paperclip: Thanks Theresa… hope you don’t mind that it’s all so red! Haha… part of the story and the big plan, i’m afraid…
AndyH: Gotta say a big thanks for all the encouragement during the course of the challenge… and the goading when i wasn’t posting! (i was very busy with ‘proper’ work!)
Evanfotis: Thanks for the suggestions, but i was too short of time to really think about any changes last night! Glad you like it.
Slav: Ta! (But there’s definitely stuff to crit!)
Groubouk: Thanks! I need to look at your piece… not had cahnce for the last week or so and i love that long armed creature and the flying car! Is it a renault?
ChrisThatGuy: Thanks… I wanted the simple palette as a stylistic thing. Not sure if it’s worked perefectly but i’m pretty happy.
WAlrus: haha! So glad you like the image. I haven’t played Psychonauts, although ironically i started roughing out a comic called Psychonaut when i was about 19…
GonzaloGolpe: Thanks! And Daisy’s just dandy!
Matt: Thanks for the post Mr.Dixon. I think the sketches helped, although MAya reeeally helped…
ahbeejieh: I have certainly come to realise that evenings of art don’t always go to plan once you have a family! And thanks about the picture!
Mythmaker, pixelplay: thankyou very much!
Sacha: Cheers! It was a close thing in the end. I’m gald i finished it at the office, because it’d have been frustrating if i’d been that close and had to spend the evening in hospital as the deadline ticked away!
Fish-KAart, zpapageo, cLos71, beelow: Thanks! Thanks! Thanks!
sh@ke: Cheers Michael… and thanks for all the comments over the course of the challenge. Sorry i haven’t checked out your piece foe a few days. (I’ll look in today)
MichaelMotion: Cheers for the comments. The piece is supposed to be all about contrast… not just colours, but also the city kids and the red (spectacular?) circus.The colours were an effective way for exaggerating that contrast.
Lady Medusa: Thankyou! And i thought it was funny about the deadline… Luckily for me there was another 24 hours to go!
AndyH (again)… I’m a wannabe kids book creator trapped in a concept artists body… what can i say…?? (Maybe i should do something about it?)
Elsie: Quite a change in your Avatar!! Glad you’ve enjoyed it. And the name Daisy Duddle always seems to prompt a reaction… it made the doctor smile last night!
