holty crap it looks real!!
Sup, lego my man. Don't you worry your lil' baby hide because big daddy Lint is here to review this here motherfuckin' frog.
Hell, why not, let's start this non-consensual affair with a fleet feet and a light peck on the cheek. First up, nice use of form. I mean damn fine use. To the casual eye this motherfucker would be photo-realistic, and that in itself is worthy of praise, you dig it? I like it, man, and this is seriously a great addition to this months flood.
That's not to say that there ain't room for improvement.
First up, that background was a major mistake. Pretty obvious that you just sort of glued it on, and not only does it really conflict with the style it also kind of fucks up what you achieved (which I'll delve into in a lil' bit). Basically, it would have been much better to go with a plain background - preferably a grey one - that didn't really try to "fill up" the picture.
By now you're probably wondering - why grey? Here's the thing, babycakes - bounce light. With the incredibly saturated green background you have now, it makes the shadows and form that you've succeeded in indicating look less like shadow and more like dirt, and that's a damn shame. With a plain grey background the bounce light would be less terribly off - and hell, maybe you could have utilized the opportunity to chuck a shadow in there.
Overall, the decision to have the shadows completely devoid of colour was a mistake.
Whatnot else really comes down to sharpness. It works in this view but to be frank when zooming in its a bit of a blurry mess - messing with flow (the brush control) is great for gradients and indicating soft edges, but not so much hard ones, and it'd be aweso if you experimented with sharpness. At the moment, the icon is easily the most readable object in the picture.
But this picture fucking works, man, and for something done at the last minute you've done a damn fine job. Great work, lego.
Looks great, Lego. Very realistic, and OMG KITTY :3
Yours is definitely my favorite of the flood this month <3 (but don't tell the others!!!)
You did a very realistic frog, and the concept is pretty funny. I liked it.
