Illustration Project - Going Green by KicsterAsh Illustration Project - Going Green by KicsterAsh
Another Illustration Project. I was the only one in the class who tackled the Subject "Going Green" and it got great reception. Several mistakes here and there, and I got tips on how to make the grass look more like paint too, which was something I had difficulty with. ^^; I also could have faded the buildings and mountains out a bit so that the foreground pops, and made the characters pop out a little more. But meh, I had so much difficulty with the background i got lazy on my OCs. XD

My teacher loved the fact that the polluted area not only looks polluted, but it seriously looks like the apocalypse XD And the fact that I've got Spike, Coco and Satellite in the pic makes it seem like animals are fixing the mistakes of humans.

Anywho, posting this nao since I didn't have it with me at school. Enjoy:aww:

The way you illustrated this idea is quite cool. :] The concept of the paintbrushes is probably my favorite part, along with the differences is atmosphere/mood between the two sides. Great work!

I can see why not blurring the buildings would draw attention away from the characters. It makes them seem more important to the pic than they actually are. Other than that, great pic. Captured the subject quite creatively.

Actually, it's the background that is more important than the characters, considering the theme was "Going Green." The advice was to just make the characters pop a bit more, not make them more important.
but thank you very much

BRILLIANT BEYOND BRILLIANCE, as usual. An amazing "going green" picture which really captures the essence of what is and what must happen. Here's betting you got a great mark on this piece.

Congratulations Ash! Your work was featured in some of the first deviations you see when you click "browse"! (Technically, it was a few after the "Show More" button, but I think it's pretty cool to be in the front!

This is cool and I'm not even a big fan "going green." You should do more pic's of your original charicters. Heck you should write a story about "them." So nobody can give you any guff and make you take it down like you had with "The Seer." Anyway I'd like to see what you imagine there personalitys to be.

I have several stories for my original characters written out, but they'll never go online. I don't post many pictures of my OCs because I don't want to risk people stealing them. Which is why I post more fanart.

iDrawArt Featured By Owner Nov 21, 2012
Sorry, I didn't mean to get your personal info. It just sounds to me like whatever college you attend you're getting a good art education and she/he is letting you draw cartoons... My art teacher won't allow cartoons and scolds anyone who does :|. And while I'd love to go to an art college, it seems that many aren't that good so I thought I'd ask which one you were attending.

I go to one in Canada, and Canada's been known for tossing animators out to the states for decades now. I don't know why, but I read somewhere that in the past most animators came from there. So a lot of the universities that give a full 4 year animation program are hard to get into. You can't just know how to draw cartoons, you need to be able to draw life drawing as well, and other types of art. Cartoons alone will not get you into the colleges.

Illustration and animation is about cartoony things, so of course I can draw cartoons. It's also not high school, so the classes are a lot better. I never took art in high school.

Okay thanks :) that's helpful to know. I'd love to go to an art school but.. I don't know I don't personally feel like I could even get in 'cause I really don't think my life drawings are too great. -___-'' Kinda suck, I think.

but thank you!

You wanna know how I tell the age of Spike?
His ears. When he's older, they're long, but as a kid, they're short.
It's cute. XD
Great pic! Looks really cool!
