Dust everywhere 'cuz that's how kool kids kounter krap komposition.
Free request. Robot/healer/pirate and his patient on a leather bag infusion.

- shiny metal + dust everywhere = wut
- weird lighting all around
- lazily made the vase non-transparent
- again way too hard lineart
- bad textures lazily DoF'd away
- how to bed sheets
- wall maybe should've been darker to increase depth and contrast


I read your description and took notice to all of your "mistakes". I have to be honest. What mistakes? This piece is beautiful. I guess the only thing I would have liked to see is a little more back story for the robot and patient in your description. Extraordinary work, and I look forward to seeing your next piece.

Thank you! Sadly I don't have any backstory whatsoever on the character since it's somebody else's, and the patient is just a generic person for this picture. But if I managed to make it look like there's a story behind the picture, that's a huge success!

Heart-Warming. Well done :)

I would love to have this fellow as my Royal Knight.

I think you did a very good job on it. Definitely a peice I'm more fond of on newgrounds.

I don't think it would be the same without the dust spread around. It gives it character, as well as the lighting.
One thing I really like is lineart, that isn't an error so much as preference, you won me over on that.
Textures can always be improved don't be hard on yourself about that.

The only thing I'd agree with is that it could be darker. I like the fading around the corners but I do think if it was just made darker it might improve the picture overall, none the less you did good on this. We're on newgrounds afterall, no need to dedicate hours to making the 'perfect' picture.

Good job and keep it up, hopefully you'll release more work like such!

(Keep the shiney metal!)
