Critique and maybe price check?
«: February 01, 2012, 09:59:57 PM»
Hi there!

This is my first attempt at a portrait in about seven years, but I felt that my alt Farfetch'd could
use a little sprucing up so I gave it a shot. I've been considering maybe taking commissions
sometime in the future once I'm a little faster at making these, but in the meantime,
care to rip it apart?

Please don't steal it though. :C



Also what would be a good price for something like this?
 Suggestions of all kinds would be awesome though. :3
 I especially want shading help and ways to improve backgrounds!

Thank you~

The overall form and composition are fine, but I feel like you could really push the contrast and shading a LOT further. Right now, everything may as well be flat-colored. That said, the water is really nice--I especially like the shadows of its feet beneath the surface and the ripples. That doesn't need to change. :)

I love this. The style is and coloring is so refreshing. (Meaning that its not over done or trying to hard) to me that is. I really love the background it compliments how you made this pokemon! Keep it up but if I had any advice it'll be to make the lineart more firm looks abit choppy.

Thank you! I had a feeling the shading could be more pronounced, I'm just afraid of shadows I think. xD I'll try to fix it!

Don't ever be afraid of adding more shading. Just constantly save new versions, or duplicate layers and work on the copy, or something to keep a backup of where you were last happiest with it. :3

A solid black outline around the outer edge of the Far Fetch'd would make him stand out against the background a bit more. Not outlining everything in a separating way, just the general outer area of him, to separate him from the background.

I nearly forgot about this, and this port. xD

I will try to add that black outline, and hopefully soon I can upload it to Farfetch'd!
