I agree with the comments above and would also like to see the next rendition. Also, I just noticed something that seems I bit off. Is there something coming out of his mouth? Or is just suposed to be a scarf?

Here is an update of my design. I would like any suggestions or opinions you have.

Looks flat. Needs more depth shadows, plus I would put the pen work back in the moon.


The first thing I notice is that this guy has long legs and tiny arms. It's a little weird. The scarf blends in a bit too well also.


Is there a way to add a multiply appearance to your original tea wash to add the beautiful depth your original sketch had? Maybe make it all one colour, so if you set it multiply it wont add any more colours, it will just add a black halftone/texture to the design?

I love this. I think it's definitely on the right track. Another thing I'm not too fond of is the shirt colour choice. I think I'd prefer a darker colour to make the moon really pop.

No account?
