    Hi! Thanks for checking out my thread.

    I wanted a cozy sort of environment with heavy emphasis on light and mood, heavily inspired by works by Dice Tsutsumi and Robert Kondo. Been obsessing w them a lot these past days lol.
    I guess my biggest issue may be composition atm plus figuring out the stylized faces in this very specific lighting, but I'm not sure- hopefully some new eyes can help me see this differently

    I'd say it's around 60% done. Open to any crits!!

    The link doesn't appear to work. Just a heads up.

    The speakers look like they are against the wall – so why don’t the stripes of light on the left one align with the blinds? They seem to be added in without any thought for where they are coming from. The other stripes of light, such as those on the wall and their sources are also in question.
    You may also want to define the edges of your figures more (such as with light and/or shadow), they are difficult to make out on this monitor.

    That said, it’s cute and packs a warm, fuzzy feeling.

    I figured something was up with the light strips- So I should make them all parallel is what I think you're getting at?
    I also haven't references this on any other monitors yet so that totally makes sense. I'll probably go into grayscale and tighten that up too.
    Thanks so much!

    Good color choices. I'd reduce the red though.

    I'm not a professional artist, so take my opinion with a grain of salt, but I really love this! I think you did a good job of showing how colors are distorted in dim lighting, so the viewer can tell the shirt is white because it's the right shade of grey/blue for the lighting that it's exposed to. Also, the muted complementary colors are nice to look at together.
