Really interesting, albeit kind of sloppy. But that gives it a really stylized look. This looks pretty familiar, but what i really like is how you framed the goofy heart thing with the starburst and the clouds. great use of color!
Thanks. This was my first time using a tablet, so I still hadn't quite gotten used to it. LOL I still don't feel quite used to it.
Kinda phallic, isn't it? I don't like this. The colors clash real hard. The starburst in the back looks funked up. And why ad a highlight to the gold on top, but no shadows on the dog itself? Keep working on that tablet handwriting too!
The corn dog was a running joke at the tattoo shop I was working at a couple of years back. The idea was, if you wanted a free tattoo, you could get a corn dog tattoo. I did try to add in some shadows at the bottom of the dog, but I don't think they were dark enough. Also, the mustard (which is what's supposed to be on top) should be a little glossier than the dog itself. Maybe I'll pull that drawing out and add a drop shadow.
Yeah, this is Really Cool. Symmetrical images like this rock! And it's great to explore monochromatic compositions sometimes.
Yeah, I wanted to try to work on subtler coloring and shading, as I usually use a lot of bright colors, but next to never create pieces that are subtler, which creates a more mellow feeling. Looking at my drawings to date, you might think I was taking
too much Xanax lol.
