Bad Sense of Direction...?



"Can you help me find Relationship Ridge? I think someone gave me a bum map."


Just a whimsical/silly visual I had randomly gotten in my head during work. Oh, and I HAAAATE COLORING... why is it that it takes at least twice as long to color than to draw. Or am I just slow? Maybe, lol. T___T

hey eji, sorry you're having problems in that area. just throwing out some thoughts about the pic though (and pleeeeease feel free to crit. my own stuff): the back side of the map should be of a darker value, because i first i thought the green on the back of the map made the map look like it had rips in it because of the same value and saturation. also, if you desaturated the sky just a little more (maybe even made it lighter), it could really add alot of depth in picture behind the mountains. i love the way you cartooned yourself though, really cute. take care.

Ah, thanks. Yeah the background coloring was sort of an afterthought, since I had done the person and sign first. Good point about the map, hadn't noticed that at the time!

i know you hate to color, but i've snuck a peak now and then of some of your illustrations you'd do in class and thought that you should post some of them, they're really great!

Hey Eji, I too suffer from an aversion to color things. But, sometimes you just gotta do it, like working out a muscle. Maybe try coloring things in a different style or media for that matter... I tend to feel pretty loose with watercolor washes. Seems to have worked so far for both of my films, so hey, it's something. I second James on the cuteness factor though: awesome.
