Summer Heat


Just something I was working on as an aside for a while. Kevyn beating the heat by standing under shade and eating a popsicle. Something has caught her eye.

A large portion of time was spent trying to pull her face out of the uncanny valley. I think I managed to get out of it this time. But I really need another set of eyes to let me know how it looks.

I don't normally draw backgrounds. But I tried with this one. I think I need better brushes for grass and leaves. I used this stock leaf brush that looks pretty cheap. But it was close enough to what I wanted, that I tried to finesse it.

Ultimately, I was just trying to capture that hot summer day vibe.

I love everything about this! I love how moderately realistic her face looks; I find it to be cute along with the rest of body & anatomy and angle view of her whole body and face is pretty impressive! And the background is pretty incredible along with the lighting and shading effects!

This is FOOKIN GORGE BRUH. Seriously though this angle just shows her off amazingly! (Bonus points for the master race of popsicles lol)

Nikcesco responds:

Banana snow cones are the real master race. But the rocket pop just happen to match.

not only is she dressed in Red, White, and Blue but shes sucking on it too i got some what stuff she can get filled with lol Great work!
