It's a cute illustration, but needs more of a concept or joke to make it ready to submit. Keep working on it. Looks good so far.

kuro_te's advice is good, i think. you should give him some friends to interact with or something. what's this little guy getting up to in the world? give him a story!

What they said ^

First thing that comes to mind for me is a bunch of unfriendly fire characters doing mischievous fiery things in the background ... and then this guy up front just saying hello.

... or you could have all kinds of them doing good fiery stuff like roasting marshmallows and whatnot.

Love the character though! Best of luck

yup you got great style, but you need a theme!

paul nicool

illo is good. need to work on story/concept.

Abilbery

This is a really cute illustration style and start. Playing off of NDTank's idea, what came to my mind would be terrified marshmallows surrounding the friendly and oblivious fire character.

CoinSlotComics

You could go the route of his friendship being unrequited due too what he is. The flame could be offering a hand to shake in friendship to flammable items which recoil from him in fear.

i'm not a whore. i think that style is similar to mine, so i said "i think you'll like my style;)" not "go and score!" tsè.

Awesome style, I like the idea of having other flammable things recoiling as he tries to be all friendly

unaifg

Thank you everybody! That's a bunch of great ideas, i'll try them

angelielle

I second that

Hi there!

I think this maybe gets closer to the idea you were talking about. It's only a sketch, just posted it so you all people could see how it goes.

I will keep posting this and the other ideas you gave me, thank you!!

Nice you went the unrequited friendship route. This simple addition really does give the concept more depth & humor.

I agree much better adds more to the concepts with the little marshmellow added lol! Good luck!

I love the fire character!!

MooseFever

I think it's really cute as is. If it got printed on a black shirt, I would definitely buy it. Maybe a little blush on him wouldn't hurt though. :3

Ibod

it's cute, some little words would be nice

Bilberya

Haha awesome. I would wear it on an orange shirt.

thesimplyshit

wow!!! This look great!! Maybe add some texture on it? =)

aphrodite07

I think this is a really cute illustration :) I think it would be more fun to have elements on the background.

angelielle

You did a really good job adding the marshmallow.

melmike
melmike profile pic Alumni

I love this as is. Really great work!

Wharton

This is a good progression. I think it would look nice if the fire were larger and closer to the marshmallows, dominating the scene. One Mallow running, another fallen over in fear and another accidentally burnt.

Definitely don't add words! Looks great with the marshmallow, you're on the right track

Day V

It already looks awesome, its a funny and cute design, I think a lot of people will like it :D I wouldn't change too much, maybe add another marshmallow (as Wharton said). Great stuff, can't wait for the submission ;)

unaifg

That's really a good idea Wharton! Thanks again everybody for al the support and comments!

gabras

Great improvement, some other marshmallow and it's done

unaifg

I made a few changes, and added a pair of marsh more, as Wharton said.

What do you think?

Wharton
Wharton profile pic Alumni

This is better, I would make the dead one, crisp and charred and the one on fire clutching at some fire on his head (but thats just a personal thing).

The other thing you could do (sorry to be annoying and totally change my mind) is to have the fire and a marshmallow hugging and not caring about being burnt.

unaifg

Haha don't worry Wharton I aprreciate all the ideas ;)

jeffreyg
jeffreyg profile pic Staff

Much better, but def try out some of Wharton's suggestions

Also, watch the angles of the marshmallows, especially the one lying down - looks like he's floating

littlem

gosh, i'm hungry for marshmallows now.

hm087ster

How about a confused look on the fires face...

But he's running away, we can't see his face...

hm087ster

No, confused look on the 'friendly fires' face (he can't understand why everyone is running away)

FoodStampDavis

I like Wharton's idea of having the dead marshmallow being charred.

Also, what if instead of a fire and marshmallows it was two pigs and they were having sex?

No... no... just stick with what Wharton said, on second thought.

hm087ster

...but then again, it would defeat the purpose of the title of the design if the 'friendly fire' looked confused. Hmmm...

Ohmmm ok!!!! I misread the comment, haha!

I'll try it, then. I would like to see all the possibilities before submitting it to be sure of making this the best I can. I like it with the happy face, to me it seems more innocent or a "dumb-good" little firey : D

FoodStampDavis
FoodStampDavis profile pic Alumni

Definitely keep the happy face. Dumb friendly guy totally works for this.
