Adam106's New Mystery Series - HIWTHI - Questioning!

Post by Adam106 »

Okay, here go. The pictures are a little better, I really have to try and make them not look like kindergarten puppets. I'd like to think that first case was just sort of a 'pilot'-ish type thing. I have quite a few currently in the works.

Well...to be frank, they still have a puppet quality. I think what would help is if their figures continued right up to the black border so that they don't look like these foppish, floaty things. Also, some hands would help.

Okay. Creative criticism really makes me work hard at getting things just right. I'll have another try. I want this to be good! :D

Rusty looks like a ten year old

Miss Scarlet doesn't hand any arms (it must be hard for her to please her 'gentlemen' 8) )

Captain Brown's beard makes up for his chest? :|

Reverend Green looks like a frog with those eye :shock:

I'm working on these when I get the time. In the meantime, here's Miss Peach.

Could use some cosmetics to enhance beauty. A little lipstick or some eyeshadow maybe? Also, I would recommend giving her some eyelids complete with lashes so she is not so wide-eyed, but possesses a more inviting look.

Something like this in mind:

You may use this if you wish, and possibly use it to inspire artistic choices for further characters.

I like the inclusion of arms and the fullness of the hair cacums. Good reinvention.

Well, thanks for all the help in making my suspects look a little better, I've took your ideas into account, and here are the suspects. I'm quite happy with how these have turned out, so I'll probably keep them.

Does Captain Brown have earrings?
Your skills are improving. Granted, the pictures are not flawless, but they are pretty good.
