Ponyo by jessieiii Ponyo by jessieiii
Some Ponyo fan art that I've been working on in my free time.

I really hope you like it. ^_^ I'm pretty darn proud of it but it would have been better if I drew it out first on paper like usual. Completely done on SAI, even rough sketched it there.
70 something layers later and we got the finished piece. :P

So I am a bit pissed off.. I worked extremely hard on this picture, and a group denied it because they said it wasnt good.. :/ Ouch, feelings have been hurt. :P
Fixed a few lil details.

Critique time~~ ;)

I'll Critique this one,
I Want to critique newer stuff because maybe i will just repeat a part that you've learned how to improve in.

Although i'm not a fan of Ponyo either xD

so lets start~


Good things - i like your coloring a lot,And the line art,and how you did the scales on the fish,
the overall picture looks really nice.

Bad things - Well first thing I noticed,maybe because i'm looking at the deviation while writing this critique,

Is the ship,you colored it with so much white,
Did you tried to light(?) it?

- I suggest you color it with less white (example: Only one line of white in the red/blue barrier

Also the bubble,i think it should be more transparent

-I Think that you could of make the white transparent,making the ship look kind of the same behind the bubble,but with a little lighting


:bulletyellow: Also,What is it on the Jellyfish's heads?
Is it like that in the movie too?


Originality - Well,since this is fan art i can't critique on the design,but i like the overall picture and the overall picture looks pretty original ;p

So i will give you 3.5 stars

Technique - Your technique is great here,

I will give you 4 Stars.


That's it~! Hope it helps you ;]
