Entry for the weeks challenge. It`s a pancake monster. It has a mouth... and eyes too... :P
Doce .. :P
HOLY CRAPE! NIGHTMARES TONIGHT! It's buttery saliva, its battery lips. diggin the eyebrows. He could get major attraction if he bats those things at someone.
And thanks guys! Without you, I couldn't make this far. I appreciate your help! My pancakemonster would look like a pile of rubber without your help, but now it looks like its real!
U thank only her, when we gave you some really good feedback?
That is one sticky and scary monster pancake stack.
Guess I won't think of those the same again. haha
Sorry, I got it now. I see what you mean, those lines a bit right to the suryp stain? Yes, thats banding and can be fixed with just a small fix. Good point Manu*...
Im interested, where do you see banding? Lower right corner? I cant see anything, because she hasnt even AA:d this piece. Can you be more accurate?
That's the spirit! Much better.
There's another thing you might improve: see those parallel identical lines piled upon each other, esp in the lower right corner? That's banding (don't let yourself be impressed by this technical link! just scroll down to the images were all is made clear).
Banding is a bit of an eye sore, because it creates artificial larger shapes that don't exist. Easy to fix too: just move one or two pixels of each of these lines so they no longer pile up neatly; check my edit again.
Thanks for the tips guys. I'll get right to it!
I agree with you Manupix, just a bit more shadows and highlights could make this piece way better...
Pancakes are hard to pixel: congrats for trying!
I think this piece's main problem is the inside black outlines, which are not really helpful for the readability.
Here's an edit. I added 2 dark colors to the palette for those outlines and shadows, also I brightened a lot the brightest color for highlights.
Try to think of how light (from above) would play on this pancake pile: shadows below each pancake, highlights on the upper edge of each.
I also see the eyes as ears, which is good too: eyeless monsters being way more scary.
Good luck in the challenge!
I'm pretty sure those are pancakes. I never said it was unsuiting for the challenge, nor did I make an attempt at insulting the piece. I only said what it appeared to look like at first. I don't see why you're complaining about someone stating their thoughts about a piece. If anything, I'm only trying to make suggestions to help.
Do you have to judge this picture that way? You cant find anything good in it, can ya? I think this is rather good. It clearly says "a monster", not "cat". Oh and cheese?? Well meaby its a pile of melted McDonalds cheeses... really is it such of a big deal. (Or are you looking at the name?)
Id say this is a fine picture for the challenge... Only thing you could add HB, is something to point out that those "ears" are actually eyesockets...
I thought it was supposed to be a cat since the eyes looked like cat ears.The yellow looks more like cheese rather than syrup. I think syrup was more honey, or brown-like colored.
