Swallows?



I don't.



So this is the first real assignment for illustration class, as you can see I've painted it twice, I wasn't happy at all with the first one. I'm not sure I like the second one, but it could be that I have been looking at it for the last like 2 days. Tell me what you think, do you like aspects of the 1st one? Any changes to the 2nd one?
Am I gay for listening to the Hello Dolly! soundtrack?

I personally like the colors and composition of both of them.
I knew you secretly liked Hello Dolly, hopefully it's the Barbra version. HD is the marijuana of musicals, next thing you know you'll be shut in your room listening to "Rent"

that will never happen unless they make a robot love movie with rent songs.

You're not gay for listening to Hello Dolly. Thats a symptom, not the cause.

I like the motion of the background in the first one, but most other things about the second one. Also, blur the edges on your shapes. They are too sharp and "digital" looking. Make them look painted.

i sorta dig the sharpness, maself, in the second one. it almost starts to look like an older etching...a specimen work. i guess it depends on what you're going for...but i like the contrast. a lot.

any chance I could commission a copy of the second one? or buy the original outright? seriously. let me know.

Lucky you, Allen, they just made the robot version of Rent. Doogie Howsier will appear as the lead bohem-bot.
