I can definitely see how much you've improved and changed with your style here Kaito. Thank whoever that tumblr person was for me:). But I honestly have to say that I like your original page more than this one for your comic. The 1st one gave a much less hopeful and vibrant vibe to the world than this one and in the last panel, the light in the original was the clear harsh type of lighting(at least that's how it came off to me) and gave a bit more of a darker vibe to the surface. Here, it has a much more hopeful, almost ethereal, feel to it. There is also the way the rest of the page looks, which is stark and barren, in a way that makes sense for a cave to be, almost cold even whereas this one is warm, welcoming, and the air is full feeling.

I want to make it clear though, I absolutely love how you did this page and the improvement is very evident from the fingers, the strength of the light rays, the texturing of the walls, columns, and plant life on them, to the roughened patches covering Frisk's body. It's amazing and something else to see the results of an individual having gotten so much better!! My first paragraph was me wanting you to know that the stuff you did in the past are things which I enjoy very much, just as I enjoy the stuff you do now. I hope I didn't come off as bashing this wonderful pageSweating a little....

Oh! I can see your point! The problem here is the light!

Hm, hm, colors and light are very important, so if I want to give off a feel of despair and darkness, I should tone it down and maybe use colder shades and colors. You made an excellent point there!! Thank you ^^

The light is part of it for sure, but there're a couple other parts as well, though I see you already mentioned them:P.

Yep, that would be my assessment. Just a point, I'm not quite sure how one does harsh/crisp lighting, but I think that might be what would work best for despair and darkness, lighting-wise. Just avoid going too edgy though lol:D (Big Grin). I'm glad that I was able to make some good points!

hmmm I am not a light and color expert, I didnt take art classes xD But I could try seeing some tu-toriels :3
Driaz1122's avatar
I haven't taken any classes either lol, mostly learned what I have from giving advice and analyzing pictures others have wanted critique on. Tutorials are a godsend at times though:).

Back then things looked a bit more cartoony (is that the right word?) but now, you use more of the effects in the lighting and a bit more realism in the background, making an atmosphere that is both calming but a bit empty.

(If that wasn't what you were going for, sorry. This is just the way that I interpret it and it truly shows difference in your style over the time you have first started drawing the comic.)
