Introduction

This is a fanart of The 2012 London Olympic mascots: Wenlock and Mandeville. [link] I changed their design to best-fit my own drawing style in this picture, and more importantly, look more sporty. I totally turned them into robotic creatures, which should not be a problem because they are originally two pieces of iron statues,

Some of you might think I wasn't going to draw them because of they are not animal based characters, but well... challenge is always welcome! I did never draw cyclops so it was interesting trying for the first time.

First of all I have to say that this is my first critique, but I got requested to do this so I'll try!

1. First impression: This is way better and way more "attractive" than the original. These look modern, young, fresh, light and somehow sportive. It fits very well to the slogan of the olympics <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" title=":) (Smile)"/>

2. Characters: I like how the orange one looks male (pose and bodyline) and the blue one female (feet!). It's the thing with the mascots that they got just on eye, what makes them look creepy in original, but here it looks more "natural".

3. THE EYES: I often focus on the eyes if the characters, and so for here they look "made not grown" in the image, it won't stuck in my head with an emotion, just as a picture.

4. Background: the London Olympics logo, matching to the colors of the mascots. Nice. Well, the shadows irritated me for first, but maybe the picture would look too seperated in orange-left and blue-right if the shadows "matched".

5. Personal Opinion: Like written in the other critique, I would hang a poster of this on my wall. It could really be the official poster of the london olympics, great job!
