a collection of work by 1st and 2nd semester sophomores
I really love the idea here and your use of color is super cute. I'm not sure if I would have gone with so much red just to deviate from the whole "valentines norms" thing but it's still super cute. Your characters are stylized well and it's nice to see a card for single folks :) make sure the perspective on that chinese box fits with the perspective of everything else on that table but overall nice job!

This is adorable and very much your personality. The wonkiness of the table doesn't bother me but I would change the chinese box just a tiny bit. I think the wonkiness helps with the playful nature of this piece.
sharing noodle with a cat tells me about so much love fore the cat:) it is so lovely! using Valentine feeling colors are awesome, and very cute. table legs look little wonky but I don't think you need to change it or something. very cute illustration! and sorry for reposting my comment. I am having weird technical issue with my computer now
Bestiality at its finest! Haha jk this is really cute. I like the details of every little things in here, like the fish wallpaper. What I slightly noticed is the blush on the girl's cheeks, it kind of look like tribal face paint... But overall the color of atmosphere looks very romantic.
I love this piece, I think you really came up with a great solution to the prompt and it is super relatable and funny! I really appreciate all the details you included to create a cohesive narrative in the piece, although we are only seeing the one scene I do not feel like I am missing any part of the story!
The colors are pretty and compatible with the illustration. The concept behind this is cute showing love of a pet. I wish the contents on the table were bigger or more clear. I personally don't have a pet (except a turtle which stayed in his tank), so I was confused with this idea and its relation to Valentines Day. But I'm pretty sure it makes sense for the pet lovers out there!
The coloring and the concept are really cute and work well together. The only thing that really stood out to me was the rendering of the hands. I know hands are hard for a lot of people, but it just doesn't look like you were confident with how you were making them. Find a way to make the hands in a way that it looks intentional, and it could really push the style that you're going for.
Being a total crazy cat lady, this piece is probably one of my favorites. I think the colors work very well together and I also love the texture beneath the couch. I do agree that the chinese boxes on the table are a bit small and that the perspective is a little off on them as well.
Wow! I see that is love. I am also a cat lover. I like the narrative between the cat owner and cat. your idea is so cute and great! Also I love your colors. those colors are well used. but I want to see the things on table more clear.
This is adorable The use of color and the center composition create a fun direct image and the contrast between the cat and you is well handled as well as the detail of the face. however some of the detail between the cat and the character become difficult to read and get lost so perhaps bolding or creating a more color contrast might help. the use of texture of the carpet i thought was fun and interesting. and the use of fish for the wallpaper was a genius idea and very funny to look at. I however feel the picture frame with its dark boarder distracts me and draws me from the hair of the character to the picture instead of to the hair to the cat. But over all this is a very cute idea and fun to look at.
I really like how you chose not to put shadows on here. I like the blocky bold colors.The idea is very clever. However, this idea of a crazy cat lady seems a bit cliche to me already. I've definitely never seen it on a card before, but it just seems like it's a bit overused since everyone always jokes about it. I dunno if it's either a good thing or a bad thing.
This is way outside of what one typically expects when searching for Valentine's Day imagery and part of my wonders if it's so outside of the norm that, without the accompanying color scheme, one would be able to discern what the prompt was had they not had prior knowledge.I really like the blocky style and the whimsicalness of the furniture and figures. Just be careful of her face. Her nose very much resembles a phallic symbol.
It is so cute! I love the details on the t shirts, pants, wall paper and picture on the wall. really like your color palette. Also like the idea of valentines between cat and a girl.
I enjoy your use of colors, attention to detail and patterning. You turned the cliche of spending V-day alone and single into spending it with a beloved pet. (for a crazy cat lady) The items on the table are hard to read- I would space the objects and make them a wee bit bigger. Also if you have candles lit- the room should be darker to show more atmosphere and contrast- she would want to make this most romantic evening possible!
It is really cute that the girl is sharing noodle with cat. I don’t think this really match with concept of love and Valentines Day. I think the objects on the table should be drawn bigger. The Chinese box that she is hold is bigger than the Chinese box that is on the table. It should be opposite. I also think her right hand that is grabbing Chinese box could be fixed. And left hand could be painted little bit messy. I do enjoy the wall color and her expression.
This is a great piece! I love how you used pattern and line , and the deep red of the couch works really nicely.The play on Lady and the Tramp is really great/recognizable, as well!I think the relief technique you used on the floor is really incongruously great; why not try it in other places in the drawing?
The characters are awesome! That cat's expression! I love all of the details you thought of to make this more cat-centric. However, I am distracted by the red nose and cheeks on the girl because if she is indeed sick, it makes me think this card has a whole other purpose.
Everything about this is fantastic. I have no complaints or questions. In fact, I'm gonna say its your best work so far… and whatever you did to get those textures, color scheme, pattern scheme, overall pulled-together-ness… do it again. Always. This is exactly the next step you should've made. Fabulous. (there is some good food for thought about me though-- not discounting the criticism where there is some, but wanted to comment more on the progress you've made)
Cats, cats everywhere!How adorable!I really like the final place where you moved her on the couch. But between the cat's bedroom eyes, the cat pajamas, and their matching sweaters in the photo, it's priceless. All of the patterning is pretty bold, but it's simplicity, and where you chose to use it worked well. My only complaint is that this piece is feeling so nice and balanced. But the left side of the wall feels a little bit empty...
