Bad Omen by cbernie Bad Omen by cbernie
...I think I implied light sources I didn't MEAN TO. OOPS. :crying: I messed up the perspective, too, and unfortunately didn't realize it until I looked closely after I was finished. Just something to have a little fun 'cos I've noticed too much of my stuff recently was so busy. :'3

Very cool lighting and mood. I like the chubby hands too.

I am so going to tape cat features onto my stapler now.

awesome, the perspective is great, and I really like the shading/lighting which is almost flawless (I can see a few mistakes but you've probably seen them already). This was done in Photoshop, right? I can never get the hang of that program, so well done for you making the colouring all blendy.

ahh, I was wondering why you weren't updating... turns out I hadn't watched you D: oh well.

I love paintings with lighting,expecially when it's highly contrasted.This painting is nice because it's not really serious overall and the main character's expression is quite amusing and suspenseful XD I love the impact of the picture and the colours you used.It's quite different from your other works that have bright subjects in them.

But yet,the pic still maintains the trademark vibrance of your style. ^_^

Love the green and eerie overtones on everything, and the large stapeler only further adds to the creepiness of the picture. Perhaps it's a bad omen when you're stapeler doesn't work?

Oh, FINALLY, I'm not alone. Green seems to be a fairly un-chic color, which makes me oh so sad. :crying: Thanks for the lovely comment and the favorite, hun! :hug: I appreciate it.

Even though I notice that there's not much distance between the papaer and the stapler, the perspective still looks perfectly fine to me. It has a special camera quality to it. And your style is just so cute and unique, I can't get enough of it. It's a nostalgic style that I almost feel is a part of my childhood.
She has a relfective light source on her eyes that seems to come from nowhere, but really makes them stand out and almost glow, gives her a very pretty look.
Excellent work ^_^

I was trying to think of what your art reminded my of. I think it comes from when I used to look through the little catalogues they give you in 6th grade to buy garfield books and stuff. For some reason your art always reminds me of those halloween/thanksgiving books I wanted to get but were always too expensive ;P. So your art has that really interesting holiday-like feeling that you get as a child. It's a feeling that's hard to remember, so that's why I love your stuff so much :nod:

No problem ;P

Very neat! It makes me think about my old job and how I was just trying to get my work done, and co-workers would stare at me waiting to stike. Those mean monsters wanted me fired. :/

Anyways..., the lighting is very awesome and I love the green heehee. You just did an awesome job placing the shadows and everything. I think the perspective kicks all kinds of ass too heehee. Nice work, as usual.

I dunno, those people were evil. I got really sick early on and I guess they thought I would miss a lot of days...I'm still not clear on it. I eventually got fired for leaving a paper on the copy machine. :/ I wanted to quit anyway.

I love love love the lighting on this! The colours are dark and moody but still interesting and have some depth to them ;3 Very nice work! I especially like the shading on her face and the shadow her farther hand creates :3 I love the detailing on her fingers and I really love how highlighted they are! nice work! The slightly green look of the piece is great, too!
