The Rainbow Wrangler says: "Greetings, earthling."


Overall, you achieve a good colour and saturation balance.
The silhouette and character are clear at a glance.
You have a strong handle on the lineart, the subtle variation in thickness helps guide the eye along the edges of the figure.

As critique has been requested, I might point to anatomy as an area of potential improvement.
The toe knuckles are clear in shape, but not in structure. Specifically, the far left toe and far right toe read as a different, less sure shape compared to the others.
The heel of the right foot isn't as clear in perspective as the other leg.

I might also suggest moving the action paw to the right, away from the head so that both are more clearly distinct.
You might also consider using bright pink rim light on the fingers to separate them from the body in the background.

I hope this helps on your artistic journey. :)
Mermay - Deep Angler

Me: 'I should resolve to making brighter, prettier characters with attractive faces'
Also me: 'Deepsea Angler fish prompt? You bet!'
Bardic_Tales up on Instagram threw a prompt my way and I could not resist.
'All the teeth and knives everywhere' he says like.

Though the scene is intentionally dark, I hope the shape of this Deep Angler merman is clear enough.
Do let me know what you think.

Mermay - Knightly

Entirely by accident, I happened upon the same colours as 'Illusion'. Perhaps, I'll keep the palette for the next few Mermay entries.

I continue to work on clarity and colour contrast. I'm also practicing better figure work and colouring that doesn't rely on mechanical shortcuts.

Again thanks to SenshiStock for the inspiration.

Greetings, peeps,

Overdue Catamancer updates!

For many of us, the holidays would have been spent lazily rolling amongst tasty treats with wintermas lights twinkling overhead. (exactly what I did)

Not quite so for team Catamancer! Multiple patches have been rolled out bearing many an improvement and bugfix. Mainly, we introduced the Interwebz Campaign, featuring five fun bosses to challenge your strategy and deck-building skills!

Each boss comes with a unique quirk and new collectable cards. We get ‘The Glitch’, ‘Business Cat’, ‘Anonymous’, ‘Bill Cats’ and finally ‘The Intercat’.

Additional seasonal incentives for a multiplayer game; ten matches bags you ‘Santa Claws’ - ‘at the end of each turn, summon a neutral 0/3/0 Festive Gift on a random neutral field’. If you’re in the mood for a bit of chaotic fun.

A friend system is planned for 2017, so multiplayer matchmaking will be even more convenient!

On a personal note, I’ve become lowkey addicted to the game. Only four short of the top level 50 goal and I’m plugging the gaps in my card collection. With an achievement system and more factions planned in addition to Ninja, Hellcat and Interwebz, we don’t need to worry about running out of things to do, though!

Catamancer is completely free to enjoy in browser and on your Android device.

You can find regular updates on Facebook and Twitter.
