Daily Deviation

Given 2012-01-02
Well, Extvia, another stunning piece from you!! Please forgive me if I don't do well with this critique-- It is my first ever. So here goes, wish me luck! As per your usual, you have vibrant, attention-catching colors, and the piece its self is composed in a very pleasing but interesting manner. The detail you put into it is also quite remarkable... I, personally, sat and looked at it for at least five minutes trying to take it all in!! However, there are a few elements in this piece that I perceive to be awkward... I feel as though the tree branch that the figure is sitting on is a bit awkwardly shaped, in terms of perspective in relation to your character. I feel is though the part of the branch by your character's paws should be just a bit wider, and that the part of the branch which extends to the background should be placed a bit further down and to the left. The only other qualm I have with this piece is that the figures left ear (actually, right ear, but to us it looks like the left) should be moved down a little bit on the head... When compared to the right ear, it looks a bit longer and differently placed on the head... Even with those thoughts having been made apparent, this is a fantastic work. I'm still in awe at the layering and depth in this picture (such as with the apple and leaves on the right side)!! Your use of lighting and shadows is brilliant, and this is a captivating work of art.

Another wonderful drawing as always! :heart:
I love your style so much, you always make your characters so cute and not to mention the great designs they have!

After taking a look at your old piece I saw a nice imrovement. Your style has grown and become cuter and better while your colouring skills became more stunning. The sense of realism is even stonger here (while in the previous drawing it was more 2D like).

The drawing looks really peaceful, not only because of the scenery but also because of the colours you've chosen. They are full of life and simply catch your attention. The overall composition is really cute. I bet a lot of people have said "aww" when seeing this, including myself! :D
All the details are wonderful and well placed. I really stared at the drawing for a while not to miss any part of it. It was really fun finding where all the fruits are although most of them are gone :giggle:

The only thing I could point out is pretty much what the previous critique has said. The branch indeed looks a bit off at some parts giving the sesation that the character might fall. Also, something personally I'd love to have seen is adding some leaves close to the viewer on the top, like you've done on the bottom. That would give an extra feeling of dept. Maybe a few more sun rays in the background would look nice too, making the forest look more magical :p

Okay I have like two questions....
1) you said they are robotic beings so wouldn't that mean they don't need to eat?
2) I pretty sure this isn't the first time somebody has asked this but can I get a character like this made for me?
TysonTan Featured By Owner Sep 20, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Hi, there.
I'm not so sure about the eating part just yet. My geek part tells me to make them wireless powered and so they don't have to "eat their batteries" to keep them alive. But obviously such setting will wipe out an interesting aspect of life so my ordinary part is in doubt. I probably end up making them eat "food" to maintain body condition and also as one of the ways to charge their power. Do you have a better idea?

When I finish the world design I will open the "include my character in this universe" request, then you can send me your character to convert into my style. Will I see your request then? :)
shadow-warrior47 Featured By Owner Sep 20, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
OK I got it and not a bad idea for the food thing but an idea could be having their technology based off how we make energy though food....maybe I'm thinking to hard on this one. Love the artwork though

julzzae Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Aw, that looks amazing!
Also, SYNC seems like a cool idea for an MMO of sorts--but it may just be my video game addiction speaking. Anyways, I love your art style!

Why haven't you made an anime series with all of your characters?!??!
TysonTan Featured By Owner Oct 5, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
I think it's because characters don't make story. I'm learning script writing at the moment.
Royce-Barber Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
I'm great at writing really strange short stories! I used to watch a lot of anime. Someday you and I shall work together, I hope. Here is a poem I was working on a few years ago, I called it "Preposterous-Lullaby": [link]

Basically all I did was pick out random words and make a huge nonsensical poem, but its easy enough to make sense out of it, it just needs gaps filled in.

Script writing boils down to;
1. Randomly generated character profiles.
2. Randomly generated story outline.
3. Fill in the gaps and plot holes, and make the characters super sexy (you have that covered!)

Is that butterfly a character in SYNC? Because there's one in the Fox and Vestige drawing too. I feel like it's important somehow.
