What do you think of my Panda?

Post by ARTSY LADY on Fri Aug 24, 2012 1:16 am

This is something I did while trying to better my art. Remember that im new to this, I would like some criticism on this with the intention of developing myself. Thanks everyone!

I like your bamboo sticks, I always tend to outline everything, and you just gave me a great example of a design where an extra outlining would ruin it (it looks very good ,and to outline it with black - as I probably would have - would ruin the natural look, and make it more cartoony )

About your panda: i like it, it's definetely recognizable as a panda , though I would say the shape of his head is a bit off... (please don't shoot me!!!)
on the left side you have a nice round shape that's starting in the corner of the mouth , and on the right side you added the shading-line that is a completely different shape than the line you made on the left side... If you would have made that line in the same manner as the left side, it would give him a great looking face

I would've left out the white nails, and just would maybe do a tiny flick with a black nr 1 brush, starting within the white of the feet...

Overall: a very good panda!

Same critiques as Tineke. The only other thing I would change would be the leaves. They can be much simpler. Bamboo is a monocot grass so the leaves are more like blades of grass with lines running parallel so no need for texture...just a flick of the brush like a tear drop...and have little branches coming out of the joints of the bamboo. I would also just make the eyes white and barely there, the red looks a little terminator.

I can tell you are artistic, I don't think I could draw a panda like that...but just google lots of reference stuff including what other face painters have done.

Here's a photo I found of a panda in bamboo I found a long time ago. I guess it's from Disney Animal Kindgom. Yours actually has more detail but see how effortless this design is. If you could take your ability and apply it to this design it would be perfect.

Now Denise I was biting my toungue while doing those ugly leaves in my eyes I knew that those where not right, but in my head I thought "Oh what the heck if i never try it I will never know if it could have been" In my kit i dont have a brown so I mixed a read and teal toguether and it gave me a sort of brown red color. So i added that round eye and TRIED to use a small dot of white for the eye, evidently the white was soaked up by that color but thank you. I did forget One thing though, THE CHOP STICKS AND NODDLES!!!

Hi Artsy! I'm pretty new too, but just a tip for you, as I've been a surface designer in other industries for years.....whenever you need to learn a shape, character, animal, anything broken down to it's simplist lines, google for instance "Panda clip art" in Google images. Always put the words "clip art" and you'll get pages and pages of both realistic and cute cartoon to incorporate into your designs. A lot of clip art takes the B.S. out of all the "extra" lines in something. Try this trick all designers use! Hope this helps!
