haha this is cute for me XD
Something about the shape and color of this makes it outstanding. It's like a kick in the visual cortex (in a good way). Is this "Snail Factory" art? The eyeballs make it look like a cartoon, but the rest seems serious and realistic. It's like H. R. Giger was chosen to illustrate the money you could be saving with Geico.
Thanks! Not Snail Factory related, just a fun scribble. It's meant to be shiny and colorful and cartoony. The same sort of form and content as the Bellmer series but a kids version, clean and light, innocent. Glad you like it!
Now that I've looked at it more I can see one thing to criticize. The reflected light has this harsh glitchy look to it. It's hard to describe but you can see what I mean, right?
Do you mean the grain in the shines? If so, I left a bit in this one to keep it more vibrant, there's less in the new one- aribach.deviantart.com/art/Cal... But I tend to prefer the harsh jagged look on works like these to letting it go completely slick and white. If it looks like computer glitching I may need to relent on that one.
It's not that obvious, but I find it bothersome. I can't speak for anyone else. I'm reminded of the Internet of yore where most images looked like they were made up of grains of colored sand.
I kind of liked that ancient gif grain. I didn't replicate it intentionally but I did forgo the fairly easy steps needed to remove it.
