maybe change some of the colors around the face and arm
This is hard to tell if it is done with the pen tool or not, it looks more jagged. The use of color is interesting - resembles a woodblock print.
I really like the textures you were able to achieve with this, especially in the face and hair. I think the hand could use some work and the shirt a bit, too, because they don't seem to share the same texturey almost grungy-ness that the hair and face do, but I think this is a really great first attempt!
I think you did a great job with texture in this one. I almost couldn't tell them apart at first glance!It'd be easier to compare them though if they were in one post.-Sam A
It would be super sweet if these were on one post. Love the way you used the tools to give this the same look that the original has. It is not crisp and clean like a lot of the other ones.It looks like you spent a lot of time working on the face and not as much on the other parts. Something to think about.
This is very nice, though I wish it was a bit bigger (is it at the 500px wide?) so I could see more of that lovely texture you've added to all the shapes. Especially in the face and hair, you've recreated the texture wonderfully.
the textures you've made creates a great "vectorized, but not too flat or edgy" look
Very nice variety of texture very close to the original. The only thing I would do is crop the background grey in line with the elbow and hair.
I love how you kept the style like the original, at least thats what it looks like to me. It isnt as clean as the other but in a way that kind of what i like about it. Awesome texture! good job on the first assignment!
It's really interesting to see how you pick up some of the colors in the hair and the hand - I think that some of those colors would be great if you were to blend them with the transparency menu - either using opacity, or maybe playing with some of hte drop down options under that menu - maybe multiply? It looks like you've used the pencil rool or the blob brush for most of the illustration though, so it's hard to see if you've used the pen tool except for a couple places. This assignment is particularly important to get the pen tool down, so if you can add back some of the textures in the face and neck using that tool that would be good to get credit for that! We'll be playing around with awesome ways to use the pencil tool, too - so don't worry! You'll have way more chances to use some of the more "natural" tools in the mix!Also - if you could resize this, it'd be way easier to see the detail in the image! I love the original piece, so go ahead and upload it to flickr at 500px and it should be way easier to see everything you did.
