I submitted this for Critique earlier today, but something exploded when I went to upload version 2 of the design, so I guess we'll just start over.

A recap: The first time I uploaded this, commenters pointed out that there was too much symmetry. I actually approached the design with symmetry in mind, but empiricist in particular pointed out that I should differentiate the two monsters better. You'll see some changes in version 2, which I'm about to upload now.

I liked emiricist's idea of making one of the monstas a girl. I decided that the bottom one was the female, removed things, added things, basically created the female of whatever species they are.

If I was dead set on putting this on brown, I'd be able to give her another color, too, since I'd then be able to use the brown from the shirt wherever you see brown in the design. Would different colors be necessary, though?

as i said before, i'm a fan of symmetry in a lot of cases...and i've always liked your monsters :)

for variety, maybe give one tree white flowers and the other blue fruits? Something like that?

HFrankenstein

I like that idea. Anyone else before I start version 3? Maybe something with the houses?

Are the houses the monsters'? Cuz unless they are contortio-freaks I think that maybe their humble abodes should be slightly less so...

SourBitch

houses could be further away, as an explaination

HFrankenstein

They're just small so they don't distract. They're only decoration. :P

I tried SourBitch's idea of adding fruits and flowers to the trees, but I didn't like how it looked when I got done, so I just added some details to the dirt and a little grass around where the tails go into the ground (not sure how I kept forgetting to do that). I think I'm gonna call it a day after that.

I'm gonna submit this on Monday, so suggestions are helpful until then. I'll give this thread a bump Sunday morning if it dies.
