this is great man
Hey mate. Pretty cool illustration. I just have 2 pointers! Firstly, you can make the characters stand out and 'pop' out of the BG more. Atm, the contrast in the BG is high, you have that dark building shadow against the light white sky. Over distance the contrast should turn lower and this applies to all factors (colour, value, edges, details). You have the right idea knocking the BG into soft edges.The final point is the black shadows. Yups, the dreaded all evil black shadows ;) It just makes things look flat because theres a lack of information about the form. This one is quite a complex topic so I will point you to ppl who are more qualified to talk about it: http://gurneyjourney.blogspot.com/2010/02/light-and-form-part-1_15.htmlIf you would like to look into light and shadow more, James Gurney has a fecking amazing book on the subject called 'Color and Light'Hope that helps bud!
Great ideas, Ben. I'll do just that!
Your best yet. Colours are sweet!
Thanks for your kind words, Ruf and Rhys:D
