Awesome, just awesome :y:

On the sneezing part, his eyes look like they are still facing straight at the viewer when they should be looking down since his head is bent over. The eye slits should be curved up like a smiley face not down. Finding some reference would probably be necessary.

That hair or whatever it is on his head seems completely different between the two.
I must say though, your pallet on the second is fantastic!
Art gives me a joy that nothing else can.

the alternate one is fantastic, sore really psychedelic mucus you've got going on there.

evileye: yeah, had 'em like that in an earlier version, then screwed 'em up trying to get the expression down right. better now, maybe.



ambient: the hair stuff reacts to the sneeze the same as the muscles of the face. they're sort of abstract representations of the themes of 'tension' and 'release'.

stratto/ ||||: not sure which pair I prefer myself. the psychedelic colors of the blue one are neat but the red pair might read better.

Cure, you're amazing. It's always a great deal to take in when you post more artwork, I tend to stare at it for quite a while.

I think the comment on the hair may be referring to Ah, where his hair is covering all of the top of his head, as opposed to Chu, who has hair only in minuscule areas.

Really I can't think of much else to say... I think I could learn more from this art than I could pick away details of it for a critique

I tried an edit of the eyes based on some pics of people sneezing.

Thanks for the edit, helped a lot I think:


still gotta make a frame for the blue guy, as well as a cleanup on the ground around them, fix the overly-symmetrical parts of the current frame, and finish pushing a few pixels around on blue guy's face

I definitely like the psychedelic blue one better ;) Such exceptional work begs the question; what's it for?
