...but not sequential adventures per se, so here we are.

All thoughts, comments, insults and feedback are appreciated!

Here's number two:

I liked using black, but I feel that it betrayed some problems with my linework--I dunno.

As before, all comments are appreciated.

i like the big leaves in the first one, and having all the flowers bending toward the angel-like person was a nice subtlety. neat octopus too, the angel-like person seems to have buffed up since the first drawing tho. In the first drawing, the foot should probably be bent at the toes so the person is supporting their weight on the ball of their foot. praps its a kind of style thing you're going for, but if you want more realistic looking wings i'd suggest checking out some pictures of birds, and i think the persons right hands in both peices could use a little more attention. anyway, keep on keepin' on.

Justin--thanks! Good calls on all the anatomical issues. I appreciate it!

The plantlife is just sloppy in this one, and I'm still working out textures for the mountains/hills, but there it is regardless...

I really like these, Ayo. They remind me of something out off a coloring book. Especially the first one. Nice style.

Thanks--although I'm still working out some general sloppiness in the details of these. I'm sure that I can clear up the tendacy to be sloppy with practice.

In this morning's picture, I drew the characters kind of small, but decided to roll with it. I'm reasonably pleased with the way it came out. Honorable men (or women) may differ:

This one's a bit different--just slightly.

These are coming along! The rowboat image is cute.

I vote for the smaller, "Little Orphan Annie" style eyes for the character; I think because the rest of her is so stylized, eyes with lids and pupils look a bit out of place.

The characters are gradually growing in complexity. Growth is a slow process. Little by little, I hope to make a completely rounded world of these...

B_Moore:

The "Little Orphan Annie" eyes are too easy for me--I've been using those for years now as a crutch. At best, they serve me well for displaying a quick facial expression or emotion, particularly on a smaller/background character. I want to use the fuller eyeballs for these because the other style its kind of a cheat for me. Like I said, there are times when it has its practical uses, and you can see how I use it on the far away figures, or when she's displaying a funny emotion, but I don't want to keep falling back on that.

I just have to learn how to integrate the fuller eyes into the face better.

Thanks!

I kind of agree with this - while the Little Orphan Annie style is easier, it might suit the rest of the piece better.

The only thing I can say about these, is the mouths with the lips - I know it's a girl, but it keeps reminding me of a strange moustache-beard combo :shock: :D Thin out the lips and make them look...well...a bit lippy-er.

Other then that, they're cute! :)

I could have done more background, maybe, but I didn't want to clutter up the space behind the characters' heads. The jury's still out on this one.
