Great facial features and solid understanding of anatomy, colors are vibrant and detailed and overall good composition. Great work!
If I were to point out my problems with this piece- The edges of the characters could be smoothen up abit, I think you could benefit from a larger canvas to help you with that.
Also light sources could be better communicated, for example the fire orb held by the central character doesn't seem to emit light on any of the characters, also if we establish that light is mainly coming from the front their shadows could be slightly stretched back.
The poses all seem correct and are dynamic and interesting, in the future try to either have them all in poses that bounce off each other rather than just look good individually, so you could really sell the notion that they exist in the same space rather than brought together from four different images.
Again, it is a great piece and your hard work really shines through! The fact that I'm talking about lightsources and posing and not coloring and basic anatomy already means you're on the right track ^^
Wow, thank you so much for those kind words!
To be honest I was not sure what to do with the fire orb, I was afraid that if I were to put some red light on the edge of the blonde guy, it would look like his hair was gonna catch fire.. which I guess proves your point of having the characters correspond better to eachother haha.
Thanks again for taking your time to writing such a detailed review, and also for becoming a fan! ^^
I cannot stress enough how great this is.. Just adorable!
If I had to point out one criticism is that the shift from brown to blue is very sudden which makes it look like she has short hair at first glance (probably because short is hair is more plausible than hair turning into space but idk), you can try to gradient the hair color to make it a little more clear and see if it works but why am I being a prick about this when the rest is so well made :X
Seeing how well they are drawn fills me with determination.
Ok seriously how are you making them so fast...
REALLY like this one, very captivating and heartwarming. Maybe the fire could use more work seeing how it emits little to no light on the rest of the image, but now i'm getting nitpicky.
Some days I trap myself in my own world and I'm able to squeeze out a drawing every other day or so...hahah only when I'm not busy!
First of all, the drawing is great. The lines are fun and creative and the colors do a great job of setting the mood and staying on a wonderful palette.
I am noticing that this is a PNG file with a transparent backround, which I think it's a shame because a bright backround to contrast the dominating brown could really elevate this piece to something much more captivating to the eye. You also might want to play a little more with the shading on the jam cookies in the bottom right (they are just a little too affected by the light source considering their location)
Other than that it really is a great piece, will totally be looking for more!
Iv'e been putting this on my desktop for a long while before i noticed Jake's arm is cut off when it gets behind the treehouse and missing a part
aside from that its really great though :P
Good spotting! I don't know how I missed that! Here's a fixed version if you'd like it :) http://www.newgrounds.com/dump/item/9d4888d093bbefbbec2e6bc4cdf6208b
