Recently, Hoboweasel, who's one of my favorite Newgrounds artists, did his own iteration of two of my characters, and that blew me away. That inspired me to try and do more with those two characters. This is a newer, more seriously done, drawing of the female character, who I've named Ophelia.
The grass took forever to do, and I made it in monochrome because I like the effect it gives. I'll do one for the male character in the future.
The original drawing with the characters can be seen here: http://www.newgrounds.com /art/view/luxembourg/char acters

The grass is far to light and takes away some depth from the picture. You should have coloured some grey underneath it so it fits in better with everything. The wierd ghost things are really cool and have become apart of your style. Ophelia seems to thin and tall and I think you drew her much better in your original sketch. The dark clouds in the background work well and make the things infront of them stand out more. Great work dude!

Luxembourg responds:

I agree she looked better in the original sketch. She's too much taller and nowhere near as pleasant looking. I think this stems from my style kind of leaning towards becoming darker since I drew the original one, though. I do feel that this piece is far better than the original, though, even if her character isn't as good.
I was actually pleased with how grass-like the grass looked, so I didn't really consider that it could be too light. It's a lot lighter than the rest of the piece, now that you mention it, and it does kind of detract from the depth, even though I feel it adds some detail.
Really, I think, based on your review, you should have given it an 8 or, at the most, a 9, but I'm really glad you like it enough to bump its score up despite the flaws. Thanks for the review, cloudy!
