I'll treat this topic as a sort of "garbage collector" in which I'll post some of my game's cutscenes / pictures in order to get some feedback. At the moment I need some feedback about this.
You are free to give feedback about the old pictures, but I'd like to know something about the newer one
Thanks in advance
old overtoure I'm working at Tryadine Effect Project by November 2011, but never really designed how Haemophages (i.e. monsters which appears in the game) could look like. A couple of days ago, I was hitten by an idea and drawn this creature. 1.
Then, I wasn't satisfied and slightly edited it. 2.
What do you think of the picture? What was the best one between the two? I'd really appreciate to receive some comment...
I had some problem too with Day 3 ending cutscene. In your opinion, what's the best picture between those three:
Drawn with Paint.NET, coloured with Paint.NET
Drawn by hand, coloured with Paint.NET
Thanks in advance,

Oh... well, I've something like a colour issue, since I've just a problem with those contours... I've no idea on how to smoothen the image. It looks like a bit rough and I'm not able to improve it...
Hmm; Try simplifying the shape of the monster into some basic forms. So, The head would be an oval for example, the shoulders ovals as well, the torso, an oval for now, and cylinders as the connecting limbs, etc. You will prolly have a rough-- or better-- idea of how to shade a ball or cylinder/can of juice. ><
Now think of your light source. It seems to be coming from the bottom-right, so focus on shading those spheres and cylinders from the light. Since spheres and cylinders have rounded surfaces, the light will be diffused/faded the further the surface is from the light.
While you shade, don't be afraid of using dark colours. The background is pitch-black and there is only one light source, so you should be shading w/ the same colour, or a colour similar to the background. Keep in mind of body parts blocking the light, and the fact that again, light will become weaker the further away a limb is from its source. Here is roughly what i did for shading... :
i made the tongue more highlighted than the rest of the body, as saliva (water) can act as a mirror (highly reflective surface).
**If ur having a hard time w/ shades, u can also try changing the image into a monochromatic colour scheme. Our eyes technically process what we're seeing into two "layers"-- grayscale is responsible for depth while colour is responsible for identifying what we're seeing.**
i tried not to make this too long or complicated, but hopefully u understand. '-' i'm not a pro, and i know the edits are rough, but i hope i helped. (!) Maybe i should do a tutorial about this instead.."
Don't be alarmed, i name all my characters interesting names lol
