Monotonous Boredom

on: June 02, 2006, 02:41:45 am


meh, I was bored and didn't know what else to do, so I just started pixeling. I don't think it's that great though. Any suggestions would be nice.

it's easily mirrored, the eyes are too far, apart, nose and lips aren't proportional to the eyes, and the light source is very boring, and leaves a yucky cheezey anime esque feel too it, but besides that it looks good :)

Agreed with Zach.

One little tip: Distance between eyes is... An eye. Try to measure the distance with a copy of one of the drawing eyes, it always works.

I really like the anti-aliasing. That's the full extent of my input that hasn't been said already.
I'm not much of an artist, but please trust me when I criticize your hard work.

You guys are confusing style for actual anatomy errors. Style comment is pretty irrelevant, it's just based on personal liking.

I like the piece, the emotion is easily read. I don't really like the white highlight lines along the lips and brow, i'd dither them or add inbetween colors to make them smoother. And the white cheek highlight on the left, not really too happy about that (though i like the darkening on the right).

Looks more like sad than bored in my opinion.

I see the distance between the eyes as a stylistic choice, so I think it looks good as is. The AA and stuff is good as well, so nice work ;D

I did an edit:


Kinda blows the whole four colour thing, doesn't it? Anyway, I forget everything I changed, but mainly it was an attempt to break the mirrored look. I changed the shadows/highlights under the eyes, the nose (the line straight down the centre really made the mirrored-ness pop out). I also added some highlights to the lips, nose, etc. I don't think I changed too much else, 'cause AI actually quite like the original lines.
 
I dunno, there's probably some other stuff I mean to say, but I forget it. Hope this can be a bit helpful at least.

wow, that looks a lot better. I'll try to make it look less mirrored next time.

Hehe, i really like this. I agree it's a style choice, and to me it doesnt look half bad. And i'm guessing it wasn't meant to look bored, and that the title was because of your mood. Lol. Tremulant's edit is great aswel.
