Alice in Wonderland by luliyoyo Alice in Wonderland by luliyoyo
Please critique me! Give me advice! Give me criticism! Don't fear being harsh; I want to learn to get better!

Chibi Alice!
Phew, this took SO MUCH TIME to make! Anyhow I expected it to be more time consuming, but it turns out I really enjoyed it.
I'll write tomorrow about this, I'm so tired right now!
I hope you like this ~~

Hi everyone! First of all, I'm really thankful for all the faves and nice comments here :love: !
I made this thinking about something "cute" - I'd like to aim my art somewhere, instead of just doing pieces by itselves and not around a theme, so "cute" and "alice and wonderland" seemed like a good start. My works as a whole is, though, very sloppy and inconsistent in nature, so I'm trying to work on that.
I also challenged myself to work on a real background for the first time, and I like the result, though I think I can do it better now. But you have to start somewhere! And works have to be finished sometime... so, I know it's laking in some aspects, but I do think I gave my best.

Please, leave comments and criticism! I love talking to you, and also love feedback on what I do. Don't fear being harsh! I want to learn!

If you like this, please consider following me on tumblr, and/or looking at my commissions page (soon to be updated with new stuff)

You obviously put much work into the main character and she looks great, but I would work on refining and shading the background to achieve more depth so that the characters don't look out of place. The shading on her legs seems a bit weird, maybe next time don't go as dark? Otherwise you've achieve a nice perspective in this piece and all the little details make it very pleasing to the eye, great job! :)

I would 'like' this comment if I could. Thank you so much! Yes, I agree with your points. I think I can say that that was my first try at doing a somewhat complex background, so having these kind of comments help me a lot.
I actually like the darker shading, but I agree that I should even it and make it all one way or another (either soft or dark).
Thank you again for the critique and the nice words!

Such a cool interpretation! I love it. :D I wish the bushes in the background would be more detailed, like the roses are then it would tie up everything perfectly. You did a fantastic job! ^^

Thank you very much! Yes, after a time I realized some things I should have done and that I should fix. But I couldn't see what was off, and that that you mentioned is one of those things, so thanks! I'll maybe revisit this later... in like a long long time XD

Hehe happens to me a lot too. The more I look at something the more I want to change but can't really put a finger on what. XP
I know way to good those long long lasting times to revise stuff. :P But on one side I wish you wouldn't change it. It's already perfect the way it is. It got it's charm. ^^

It is already apparent that this is very cute. The depth that you put into Alice is done very well :) The pose seems innocuous and surprised as she notices the crosseyed Cheshire Cat is on her. Very vivid colors and scenery occurs to be a strong part of this overall. A minor crit I like to offer then is to maybe not have the legs overlap the skirt as they are currently? Unless that was intentional of course. Also would you consider removing the pink line connecting the cat's face to it's tail?^^ While a fittingly loose drawing, can the end of the path not overlap that much of the brush there?
I like the overall incorporation of elements from the story though. The cards,chessboard and even the bottle that started it all. :XD:

The chocolate looks tasty, but anyway hope this helps. ^.^

Thank you very much for this comment! The scenery is what I struggled with the most, so I'm glad it came out nicely enough (this is my first time doing a real -fairly complex- background). I thought of having the legs overlap the skirt, but I didn't make the white fabric any transparent, so it can be confusing (I mean, I should make it so it is quite transparent - as I tought first -, or remove the overlapping). I hadn't noticed that line! And now it drives me crazy, hahaha. Checking here, it turns out it was a strand of Alice's hair, but having the Cheshire Cat over her does not show that, so I should remove it for this illustration. Oh, and also the path. That was the last part I made and as such it's very sloppy XD so I shall fix it, too!
What do you think about the quantity of elements in the BG? I think there should be more and more and more (I planned on doing more roses, different flowers, funghi, chess pieces, the March Hare, teacups, and so on...). And also, what do you think about adding textures? I'm fairly content with Alice's face mostly, but maybe a little bit of texture would liven it up a little more?
Thank you very much for your comment! It is in fact helpful. Thank you again! :love:

Glad to hear :D
I think the quantity is fine, you can add more if you want up to your liking. If Alice is the focus, you might distract attention from her with too many elements...just something to consider? As far as texture, all I say is try and see.
Welcome (:
