    Talking hello my friends!

    Okay, I know it has been awhile, I have been working diligently on illustrations for dummy books and portfolio samples, etc. I entered a contest about illustrating a book and I have to find submit a pic for one of the pages in the book. I had been playing with the collage look, and with the thinned oil look. I had originally made the girl from digital paint and colored pencil, and then I did a quick sketch behind her. I really liked how the quick sketch looked though and was wondering if the two styles went together. Maybe the quick art for the backgrounds and the painterly collage type for the people.
    Need input!

    Well aside from the tree's maybe needing a couple of highlights i think it looks great, she's rather bright as if there's light reflecting on her and yet the trees are rather dark, the lighting on the trees looks slightly out of place in my honest opinion, they don't need much highlight, just a little bit, but maybe i'm just being picky cause it's all so well done hehe.

    It has a simple pleasing feel about it, i really like it, it makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside, as if you want to say hello friend right back lol

    Thanks, Silentman. I'll see what I can do about highlighting the trees. It still doesn't quite match because the background was an afterthought to the girl I already drew. But then I really liked the way the two contrasted with one another. Thanks Wenkat and Alexandra.
