Huggles by AltairSky Huggles by AltairSky
EDIT: Since so many people not familiar with my comic and characters are misunderstanding, these robots are NOT made of metal. Robots made of metal is an obsolete concept that should die asap, since we already have so much better hi-tech materials like carbon fiber, graphene, and composites. I suggest you to check my comic so you can get to know my characters better, I'm sure you'll love it!

SO MANY HUGGLES <3<3
Happy new year everyone!!

I really like the warm yellow light in contrast to the cold, dark blue branch. I also really like the effect where the light is hindered by the robots, casting shadows in the air (particles?).

However, I feel like you still need some work on shading the characters. The blue eyed character, who I'll refer to as Blue, his head does not look like a sphere. This is most likely due to the darker side of the head. The part facing towards the light is done well, however, the part that's in the shadow, the area under the antennae is all the same value. This causes Blue's head to not look so round. Though Red's head is very well done.

I apologize as I have not yet read your comic so I am assuming they are both made of something to the effect of metal. Yet the texture that these robots give off are more plastic. I think it may be because of how you draw them. I think with metal there is stronger contrasts instead of your gradual turns. However, I lack experience with different textures as well so I am unable to give you much advice on how to create such a texture.

Also with the biggest tree, the small amounts of snow gathered on it are all very similar sizes are distanced in similar increments as well. This causes it too look dull.

Also the under the tree, I don't really understand what is there. You can clarify this by creating more dimension to it.

Over all this artwork is absolutely well done and I understand you have work very hard to get to this point. I love that you are able to convey the robot's emotions just through their eyes. I also like how you did the lighting effects and the trees close to the light. I really think this piece is beautiful and thank you for sharing it with us :)

It's to good. You did so well that it went past infinity with its level of goodness. Good job, you confused like 5 scientist. Man, I can't believe you would do something like this. You must be kind to the scientists and not confuse them. Then you come along and make a picture with such goodness it surpasses infinity? Wow, so rude. It's just... to good! Your going to break the universe! There's not enough goodness currently existing to support the demand of goodness requested. Good job, you not only confused the 5 scientists, but also destroyed the universe. All just because you thought to yourself "Man, I sure do feel like making a picture so good that it's level of goodness surpasses infinity today!" I can't believe this.

They look really nice, almost some kind of "cute" together! This picture depicts your title really well. You did a really good job on the shading of both of them, as well as on the composition and the placement (composition) within this picture. And - in my eyes, it adds a lot to this picture that the background has quite some texture to it.
Oh - and reading your description is interesting. You are right - there are soooo many new materials, robots out of metal might really be part of the past.

And for cinematic reasons - a metallic robot just "gleams/shimmers" much better than one made of another material ;)

Heyo! Just wanted to stop by and give some feedback real quick.~

First of all, I love the winter colors and setting/environment you have going on here! It sets the peaceful mood to a 'T', especially with the dead trees and hanging icicles, along with the snow on the bushes. Even the subtler touches such as the sunshine looks so healthy and puts in the right amount of glow and appeal along with little specks of snow and the bark and ridges on the trees, it's top notch!

Next, is the execution of the robots, which also looks solid. They have the right amount of detailing on them to make them look smooth and fiber-y to feel. Their anatomy and designs also came out pretty well, I may not have seen the original source material, but if I had, I could imagine this being very impressive in terms of attention towards capturing it's essence.  

In terms of complaints, I can't really think of too many really. Maybe do something about the watermark that's there and have like a copyright thing in the corner since I understand you don't want this being stolen, but other than that, this is super great! Keep up the good work.~ ^^

Hello there!:wave: I'm from :iconprojectcomment: and I'd love to offer some constructive criticism on this beautiful piece. :)

First of all, environment looks lovely and the atmospheric perspective is great in this piece. Love the color compliment you have used here. It worked really well for the scene. Love the shading of the bots and adding bold colors to their eyes worked greatly as it defines a nice focal point. I really like their facial expressions making an emotional impact on the audience.

It's a great piece but I can make some suggestions to improve it. If you think they are not helpful, please feel free to ignore this.

My first suggestion would be to add bit more definition to the snow in the foreground. Taken your main focal points into consideration, it would great to add some details to nearby area and soften the edges of the rest to strengthen the key focal region. Snow could use bit more detailing as they look bit flat to me especially near the characters and on the tree trunk. Add a bit of shadows and sharp highlights and use a textured brush to overcome this issue. You could blur out snow on the tree trunk a wee bit while keeping the snow near characters, bit sharp. same goes for the icicles. Although they don't look flat, bit more detailing would improve the realism of this piece.

My next suggestion is to pick the eye color from the blue bot and set the brush mode to overlay. use a with 50%-60% opacity soft brush and add a bit of blue hues to the cool areas in the foreground (top left of the image near tree esp) and see how it goes. Imo, this will bring more liveliness to the piece as the color contrast of the piece will be increased.

While there's no big issue using almost pure white(R: 249 G: 251 B: 250), it really distracts the eye because of the sheer contrast it generates. If you could reduce it down a bit, i think it may be easy for the eyes. Just a thought.

If you decide to add some light blue hue to the background as I suggested above, don't forget to add some bounced light to the bots and the snow where necessary as this may increase the realism of the scene.

While there's nothing wrong with the current color harmony, you could try to make it a an analogues color harmony by introducing a bit of purple-ish hue to the background. I think it will improve the overall impact of the piece. Try it out if you like. If you need to be precise you could use Color Schemer Designer online app to define your analogues color scheme.

Last but not least. I think you are using rule of thirds composition here but none of your important elements fall on the guidelines when I measured. If you move both the bots to left towards tree, it would be more pleasing and the impact would be greatly increased imo. Here's a useful article about compositions that i often dig.

That's about it I guess. Don't take anything personally though, I'm not trying to bash this beautiful piece. Just trying to help you to improve as much as I can. Bare in mind that I'm a newbie to art but I'd be really glad if you find these suggestions useful! (sorry for the typos and grammar issues if there are any, I had to rush it due to busy schedule)

Have a great day friend! stay awesome! \m/

Ah, your use of color on them is fantastic. I didn't realize it was a fan-comic; I wish I was more familiar with the original materials that inspired it haha. I remember having one of those games at one point but it was too hard for dumb child-me to figure out pfft.

lol yeah it's technically a fan comic but you don't need to be familiar with the franchise at all because I explained everything (just the first few chapters might be confusing, but the world will be later explained in due time). In fact most of my reader watched the original series only after reading my story, which I think is a good sign XD.
