    NEW ART Updated: 10-4-07 They Call Him Squii... Mr. Squii

    Updated:
    Added a new image, of Mr. Squii and his "Squiigirl" Opal.



    I fixed all of my laziness, changed the way the eyes were looking, added the ink squirting out of the gun, It's not a regular gun, it just squirts ink and that's why it works underwater. I mean come on, octopus, ink, and yes octopi do squirt ink, I looked it up ;P

    1st one is the new one, 2nd is the old. ^^

    I Couldn't help myself, I had to do a spoof on Bond.

    I know cutesy art isn't the norm around here, but I hope it keeps you on your toes

    Think you can do better with the text though. Would be more interesting and fun if it was in a balloon. Now it's not clear he's saying it, it's kinda floating in there.

    Nice art.

    I'm aware of that... I don't know why his name made me think of that... but it did :/

    Pretty swell. Could do some tinkering with the text. Looking kinda dull. Also is there text in the forehead?

    The character is really cute I really like his eyes!

    I agree with Cookie tho, the text could use some more work. The type choice doesn't go too well with your style.

    I'll try and give you some more input in this:
    Try not to repeat so much the same elements: the fish are all the same, the dots on the left of the sand are the same as those on the right but reflected, and you've also repeated leaves of the seaweed. These detract from the interest of the image.
    Also, the white borders on the sand don't match the ones of the water and some of the leaves of the seaweed are not well covered by the sand.
    Last of all, even with the few elements you have here you got some tangents here and there, especially between the seaweed and the white contour of the little guy, and among the leaves.

    I know these details may seem insignificant, but when you work in a style that is so graphic, simple and clear, they become more noticeable and important, and taking them into account helps the piece become cohesive.

    I hope these crits help!
    Cheers

    entdroid: wow I didn't even notice that seaweed til after I'd posted it... Gah. I will fix the things you said, I was being lazy and I need to stop that.

    complete2: haha I was hoping you wouldn't notice XD Let's play find the hidden or not so hidden copyrights!

    cthomp: Yeah I didn't think the text out too much... I'm working on it. Yes it is text in the head, I always do such a bad job of "hiding" my copyright... I should just stop trying so hard. I finally did just send him to the copyright office, soon you won't see ugly watermarks on him anymore.

    Cookiedough: OH that's a great idea... I hadn't even thought of it! XD I will do that.

    I'm tweaking all the tangency's and laziness parts of this, I'll re post it when it's Actually finished. ^^;

    Yeah, I like the second version much better. The composition is more interesting, and I like that the character is bigger.

    Yeah, I almost always half ass my work at first, and then I post it on here for a kick in the pants and it always looks twice as good, if I don't post on here my work would probably always be mediocre... I think everyone needs a good kick in the pants every once in a while

    Second versions majorly radical. I like the addition to the gun and the fact you pulled it closer together. Helps the layout loads.

    Not too clear what he's shooting at, maybe just let the shadow/silhouette of a bad guy/ antagonist fall over the text, to show threat, but not expose all? Also think of his environment. I know you keep things simple, but little things like some shells or a bush in the bg or some tiney fish far, can really add lots to the piece, cos they 'liven things up'.

    Also add sound effect - Pshhhhht or something to the gun. And maybe add some balloon to the girl squeeling or something.

    Finally, the font of "the adventures of" bugs me, cos it's too pointy. "Mr." suits better, but don't overdo the fonts. Just 2 is enough to get the message across. The "Squii" is my fave font.

    Thanks for the crit Cookiedough. Funny thing is the font you like the best is the one I made myself XD I guess I got too lazy to make the Mr. ... :/
    I've been working on a villian for Mr. Squii, I just haven't come up with the right design yet. A shadow could be cool, but I need to know what the shadow is going to be before I just slop down some random shadow. The Pshhht could be fun... I'll see what I can do. I really appreciate you taking the time to crit, no one else seems even remotely interested, even though over 100 people have looked at this since yesterday, you were the only one to take time to post. So thanks again.

    Very cute! I think the girl is looking good. I like how she looks a little surprised/worried.
