Re: Getting Into Character



Nice concept, though the lighting and the shadows bother me. If it's by candlelight, then the glow wouldn't be so uniform as it's depicted now. If it's a spot light, then there shouldn't be a candle and the younger bats would have a shadow too.

Haha, I like this. I just hope that enough people would get the reference! I'd definitely buy one.

Ooooo, nice... Is the text going backwards though, right to left? I'm thinking maybe the book is upside down.

This is the first time I've tried using halftones in a design, I'm not sure how I feel about them yet.

For illustrator users how do you make gradients for complex shapes? It seems almost impossible with just using radial and linear gradients.



You can always use a gradient mesh instead of radial or linear gradients.
Also, you should play with the angle of your halftones. I find that a 45 degree angle seems to make them look better.

I typically work in photoshop, and I find that It is easier to make gradients with the tools it provides.

Drawing that dog took almost as much time as drawing everything else. Dogs are tough!

Really well done illustration. It sits wonderfully on the shirt.
And I love the atmosphere you have added with the bushes and night sky. +1

This is really well drawn and executed, I hope you place so I can get this one.

Easy mistake to make. Hemingway was Twain's pen name.

It's a very impressive image, though. Very well modeled.



Thanks for the input! I had considered doing that one but thought the car might distract from how epic Raptors are bum themselves... Though they could have been eyeing up the traffic cop the way we eye up a ribeye... Hmmm......

Re: The Real Treasure



Great design! I much prefer this to your usual style. The only change I would love to see made is to utilize the center of the shirt more. maybe make the swirl of books and letters come through the middle. Other than that, I love it all. The color choice for the letters, and the style! well done!
