Left and Right Brain


A little project I started to keep myself occupied whenever I got bored with my video games. This took two days (7 hours each day) to create. It went through a lot of design changes and multiple color pallets before it was completed.

This drawing is based on the left and right sides of the human brain. The left section of the brain is complex and takes care of rational / logical issues; it's basically the smart side and so I drew it as an older business man. The right side of the brain controls a human's creativity and emotions which is why I drew it as a "wild" teenager.

I really hope you enjoy this.
Any type of feedback is welcomed and encouraged.

Also note: I created the T-shit's design really crappy on purpose.

An interesting representation of how the right and left sides of the brain are different from each other. It's been a while since an art piece made me think of what it's supposed to represent. Props to you for that.

Coloring the characters might improve this, but then again, I think the characters being black and white look just fine.

I really like the background and how each color goes with the character they're representing. Or maybe I'm just thinking too hard, haha.

Overall, interesting representation of the left and right sides of the brain. It's simple, yet kind of complex at the same time. Nice work.

Thanks Man! I really appreciate the review.

I can see where your concept came from and the idea is nice. I would love to see these characters in a comic or something because standing alone its kind of odd.

I really like the way you designed the characters as well. Its got this kind of professional look with the lines around the edges. I really like that.

Nice job.

Thanks man. I put a lot of work into this one because I felt my last drawing was a bit rushed and lazy. And also, thanks for the idea of the comic. I might use that. I created these characters for an animation I wanted to create, but then I realized how expensive flash was.

Great execution, nice idea, I won't see this scientifically.
Your shadows are pretty good, well you could put more work in the fine lines on the right one. I see you put more work in the shadows on the left fella as on the right.
After all it could use more color. You have a colorful background but the figurines are blank. Just pure black and white. Which let it looks like it's not done.

After all
4/5 Stars
Great work, keep it going!

I messed up on the shadows on the right brain character. I will admit that. Thanks for the review. I'm thinking of adding a bit of color and fixing the shadows for a re-upload / remake.
