I tend to be kind of a personal fan of the theme of fanstasy and adventure. So reviewing pieces like these always bring some form of enjoyment.
As a basic overview, this reminds me a lot of the Shakes And Fidget style. Not that that is a good thing, it just brings some comical images to mind. Lets be honest here, this isn't the typical hardcore fantasy piece. This is more of the lets have a fun but awesome adventure. And I love both equally, so no points off there. So, on with it!
One of the first things to be noticed about this is the color. It is colorful, and that color is nice.
I'm thinking it is a pretty safe bet that you colored this digitally. and although it may be digital, some of your color strokes remind me so much of actual markers. Which is kind of cool. I like what you have done here.
You also have good atmospheric colors with the saturating colors in the distance. So again good.
The only think I don't like on the color is the clouds. you just kind of have these white cut out clouds. I think you could have added a little shadow to their underside. Give them a feel of depth, you did well with that most everywhere else, just not the clouds.
The second thing I take up on is the line art. As a person struggeling to develop my own digital inking skills, this has become something that I pretty much check out with everything I look at these days. You know How dynamic is it, does it have good weight and character. is it think , or is the artist going to make it invisible. You know, all the same questions we ask ourselves, I'm sure.
Anyway enough rambling. The line art is good. You went with some nice interior lines while having a solid outline. The lines are pretty dynamic and fitting for the piece.
If I had to bitch about something on the line art, its the road in the background. I like that you have done it in brown rather than black, but I think you should have thinned it a little. give it the appearance of being less.
Since I'm on the road (Get it :D.... er yeah...) I think you should have tapered the road in the distance a little more too. again just to aid th foreshortening of the piece.
The composition is pretty solid and well balanced. It lends its self to the interaction of the characters as well.
Lighting, much like the coloring, where I should have mentioned this in the first place, is good. I think you have done well with your shading and highlights. So Major kudos onthat one.
Over all. Great piece. I like it. Really awesome
Even fave'd it.
