Entry for the November EMTC FOOD!

Attack of the yummy foods!:nuu: I spend all day making this. It's nice to sit down and pixel a nice big static piece. I haven't done it in a while.:giggle: And thank you to =happy-gurl for helping my with the doughnut sprinkles.:giggle:

Hope you like!:la:

NaNoEmo day 21

For FF:

On this, I would like some tips on my colors. A lot of the colors on here (like the potato and the cake) seem too dark and I couldn't fix it. Also it looks like the doughnut and the chicken drum stick or in mid hop, I would like to know how to make it so it doesn't appear that way. Any other critiques on it are welcome.:)

Hi there! I am here as part of the Feedback Frenzy.

First off, this has a lot of impact. The giant pink donut is unmistakable and appears to have plans to obliterate the little emoticons. I had initially clicked on the image in the hopes that maybe it was animated, but the piece still has a great deal of impact even without being animated though.

I like how you placed the pink donut in the middle, however, the donut's teeth disappear a little with the default grey background. A fine dark grey outline might help them stand out more. The teeth also look a little long, perhaps shorter teeth like the drumstick would match better with the other foods. The sprinkles are great, but I would suggest making them a little bit fatter so they stand out a bit more (one pixel width should do the trick). I also would suggest making the donut's eyes a bit darker so they stand out more.

I agree, the contrast on the cake is a little dark. Perhaps this could be helped by giving him red gel-icing eyes, or making the middle beige rather than a solid chocolate cake. The dark brown potato chip (I think he's a chip) could have a lighter coloured mouth to help see that his mouth is open.

You also mentioned the donut and drumstick appear in mid-hop. I have to agree, they do appear in mid-jump. The addition of shadows directly under their "bodies" should help in fixing this.

I really like the use of the emoticons. The hand placements and expressions you created are perfect.

Overall, really great job in assembling this, hope my suggestions help you out. This is a cute reminder that we're currently facing an obesity and diabetes epidemic by the over-abundance of delicious food. Keep up the great work!

For the Community Critique thing. XP

First off, I really like this piece. c: It's got a lot of creativity.

Vision: I gave ya four stars on vision. I can tell you planned this out well, everything looks ncie together. The only thing I can't tell what it is is the brown thing in the top right corner. Is it a bean? :P Idk

I gave you 4.5 stars on originality. You did get most of the ideas by yourself, but since you did get the 'food' concept from EMTC, thats why it's 4.5 stars. :P Other wise I would have given you five. :3

Technique: Awesome job! You have a great technique, I especially like the shading. c:

Impact: Over all, this made a great impact! I really love this piece. c:

I think a big problem might be that you used way too many colours! You used 555 colours, you can check your colour count here: [link]
I think it would be good to limit it, at least a bit. It seems that you create the basic piece, then you pick one colour and then you change the brightness of the colour. When you add the details and you have to make something darker you change the transparency of the brush instead of precisely picking a colour or using an existing brighter/darker colour.
I would suggest that you 5-6 colours before you create the piece and then you just use this colours for your shading (5-6 colours for one colour of the piece, for the brown of the chicken drumstick for example, you used 33 (excluding the white part)) (You can of course use as many colours as you want but try to pick the manually, don't let program decide it ;D, the best would be to only pick new colour if the dithering is obvious )
Another suggestion I have is: try to vary the hue of the colour, I noticed that you just change the brightness, it might really help to change the hue as well. :nod: And sometimes it is better to use less saturated colours, that could also help to improve the piece.

The dithering on the doughnut doesn't really fit to the piece. The icing of the doughnut should be glossier and not that rough. Either you use no dither at all or just a little bit: [link]
Try adding a shadow below the doughnut and the chicken drum stick this way it won't look like as if they are floating:

Here is a revamped version of your piece (I didn't change the Emotes): [link]

Oh wow, I did not realize that.:nuu: I guess I went too overboard with transparency.:XD:

That's a really good piece of advice!:nod: I think minus the face on the drumstick, it was about 8 colors, but it looks like the face used up a lot of colors. Especially using that transparent white and black to give the mouth depth.;p

As of recently, I have been trying to limit the saturated colors; especially for my greens, pinks, reds, and purples.:nod: They look a lot better less saturated and less harsh on the eyes which might otherwise distract the viewer.

I like that! I've been afraid for the longest time to dither a lot with colors that are so different with each other, but I think stepping out of the bubble and making then higher contrast to each other like you did will really help it look more "3D" and less flat like my current style is.

Thank you for this!:la: It really will help a lot in the long run for many future pieces! I also love how you give visual suggestions in all of your critiques, it really helps the person getting the critique have a much better idea on what you mean making the critique that much more helpful.:giggle:

Thank you very much!:dummy:
