- Crafty Goldfish - by coreymill - Crafty Goldfish - by coreymill
= Full View =

- To truly understand the title you would have to read the begining of the story that this is an illustration of. A friend of mine is writing a story right now, and I drew this fish on the old table which is in the story. This is the same story that -- Mark-- is from ^~^

- - This was going to start out being something that was just REALLY quick, but I ended up kinda liking it so I worked on it a bit longer than I had planned, but I really do like the way that it came out. So I don't regret the extra hour or so that I spent :D

Done in Open Canvas ~ about 2 hours

Really cute~~ I like this style, where its not exactly to perspective because it has a more graphic/fantasy sense but it's still believable. The texture is lovely as well.

I really like the coloring you did with the fish bowl. I don't know what it is, but you made that clear object look really good with that paintedesque style.

Then the light on the table that looks like it is being refracted by passing through the bowl was a Very good touch too. I find it hard to believe that you only spent a few hours on this.

psssst

if the lower line of the window is at eye level, which is what the top elipse of the fishbowl is implying, then it needs ta be straight across. even if it's not, it should be very nearly horizontal. and that flat part on the roof through the window seems to converge to the wrong side. these things really seem to flatten out an otherwise heavenly spawn of the mind. you best remember your roots, boy. Drawing I, yo

other than perspective, it's a very lovely piece. I do enjoy seeing your non-anime stuff, I wish you'd do more of it, despite popular demand.

This is a really good picture... nice lighting, etc.

One sugestion though; try adding something else to the picture next time because it looks a little empty. Maybe like a comfy chair next to the table or a rug or something. I dunno... it's just advice so don't feel like you have to take it. ^^

It's really good, though. Better than I could do!

Thanks a lot for your thoughts on the piece ^^

- I was actually trying to go for a stark feeling on the piece because in the story that it's illustrating, this man has just moved into an apartment and it's empty except for this goldfish on a very old table by the window.
