Nice composition. I like the expression on the elves' faces, and the mouse looking on is a nice touch. Shouldn't those elves be making toys rather than playing games :-)?
Lots of nice stuff going on here!! The lighting puts the focus where it needs to be, and the costumes are awesome! (did u texture those? wow). I also like how the elves's eyes lead the viewer to the mouse.
Thanks very much Laurel and Justin. The composition was a lucky choice with the negative space etc. I tried the central elf more to the middle but it didn't work so well - less dynamic for some reason?Justin, I've bought some new software recently. Blacksmith 3d for 3d paint which is great for painting over seams on the mesh! with these little fellows I used stitchwitch to make the textures. http://www.daz3d.com/i/3d-models/-/stitch-witch-1?item=8201&_m=d It's on sale today. Still, at 50 percent off it's probably overpriced!thanks again :)lovely day here in OZ
Hi Andrew, I love your style...this has so much depth, great characters too. It also reminds me that i'm long due a game of chess :)
Thanks so much for the compliment, Andrew. And as for your illustrations, like I said on MAD, "WOW!"...They are more than engaging and have that magical air to them that are so important in children's books.
Much obliged for your kind comments.... me too I am need of a game of chess! But who ever has time? Pat- my pleasure!
Hya! Thank you so much for leaving a comment. I appreciate your time and thoughts.
