Hey Jazza! hears my entry for April's Tradigial challenge. Hope you like what I have and for all the rest of you I hope you like what I have. Here's the link to the piece in progress:
thanks for you time everyone!

edit: after my own concern and others i changed the background. its allot simpler but i want Jazza's approval lol. I'm just not good at all with backgrounds.


Simple and clean juxtaposition. The first thing I said when I saw it was, "Oh, COOL!" If I had to make a criticism, it would be that the shading/highlights feel a bit too soft, at least to me. The lineart and structure is very good overall and makes the characters seem substantial, yet I feel as though the shading/highlights make the characters feel somewhat intangible and not quite as solid as they could be. Perhaps it's how the lighting would actually work and I'm just being a silly silly, I dunno. :P

I'm a fellow contestant, and I'm a tad jealous I'm not finished with mine yet. Nice work here, and good luck!

I love this piece ! The contrast between the dark almost eerie blue artificial light of the digital world and the warm sweet daylight of the painter is enchanting. I like the fact that you've given the traditional painter a "normal" more natural hair colour, whereas the digital painter has bright purple hair. I love the fact that you can read the concentration on the illustrators faces as well. It's really well done ! The only reason I didn't give it full marks is because I feel that the digital artist's face isn't quite proportional (the nose seems to jump out a bit far), but apart from that, the lighting, the shading, the expressions, the character design is all brilliant!
As a fellow contestant, I guess I've got no chance...
I'm sorry I don't have much that's helpful to say, I'm really a noob... Hope you do well in the contest!

This is a very clever idea for this COTM this looks very well,the way you drew the painter to the digital artist is very cool the painter in daylight and looks stress free while the digital artist is in the dark and looks a bit stressed, this is amazing :)

I read that you changed the background so I don't know how it was before but I can tell you that now it is awesome so the simplistic background is not a problem. Love the concept of the peace

I like it! The paint splotches on one and the detail of the pen on the other are a nice touch, as are the colorations and soft light. Check your proportions a bit though. Arms especially.

Congrats on UOTD!
