Here's one particular piece out of a series of three illustrations that I am doing for a cafe and I thought that I simply would like to share what I've been doing lately. They all have a similar theme and color scheme such as this one, and each piece will be printed at a size of 3 square feet and mounted on the wall. A full view for better enjoyment :)

Cool! I like the feeling and particularly the fact that she doesn't have huge boobs... (I love huge breast but hey it is beginning to be cliche...). very very nice!

Good piece... i thought about it, if u remove the girl, u should get some crazy atmosphere here... mmhhh i tend not to like ppl too much those times ;)
no i like it anyway... even if the girl is a bit rigid !

Thank you so very much :) Yeah, I was debating whether or not to put in a girl, but I decided to go with it since I wanted to experiment with both creating a person and scene. Perhaps the next piece can concentrate more on just atmosphere itself :)

Ah! It's so beautiful! A wonderful, wonderful piece! I love how she's just sitting there chillin' and drinking coffee and stuff, and there are people in the background talking randomly. Great lights above as well. Looks great! Glad to see it. ^ ^

Great simplistic feeling to it, her shirt looks great! Nice table too!
I dont know if you're looking for critique on this one, I dont really like the wall, but I dont know what would look good, so ignore that part, but her cup looks like it's defying gravity, and her pose is a bit rigid, she doesn't look too comfortable, I dont really understand her chair, but it certainly looks like a fun sitting place!
The ground around where her feet are also looks a bit funny, perhaps if she was a bit smaller, it looks like you could do with some more space for detail, like her feet, and the floor transition to the back room.
Very attractive piece though, I can see it helping to create that cafe ambience.
:highfive:

Your gradient shading is wonderful. And you have a great style.
I think it'd be better to have kids when your quite young, like, 20's or so, it'd be harder to raise them, but imagine how much cooler your kids'd be to have around, like on desperate housewives, but they're all much older than they look, but really we need to have another 10 years somewhere between 20 and 40, like a hidden rift of time where you dont age but your kids do, plus if your the person having to do most of the baby making (the female) then when you're younger your body can bounce back way faster, none of that unsightly saggy skin on your stomach or any of that.
I think I'd only have one kid or so, preferably a human.

Thanks for the compliment and taking the time to write a very thoughtful critique :) Yeah, there was a lot of experimentation on this one, and the wood grain wall was just something I felt like trying out. The floor transition was the tougher part, since I wanted to keep it very simple and background like. I tried playing around with a couple more shapes to aid in the transition, but I didn't do a good job of that since it felt cluttered, so I went back to the simple route. Either way, I think I'm content with it so far :)

LOL! That second paragraph cracked me up. Indeed, it would be nice to discover a hidden time rift. Man, usually I don't think about age all so much, but these days i realize that I'm actually getting older and soon I'd have to think about all this kid planning stuff. HOLY CRAP!

And yes, a human child would be nice. Or maybe a really advanced shapeshifter that could be anything it wants!

That's what I thought. I don't know why but when I see your stuff I just think iPod. Maybe it's the whole funky image that Apple is trying to force on us, and just the funky retro chic of your designs.
