Yes, they did laugh; I think it was a combination of both lol.
It wasn't really suppose to be a funny video, rather it was a video designed to outline the work that went into the project. I didn't want to make the video bland and dry so I decided to put some humor into it without going overboard and risk receiving a failing mark from the teacher. I do agree though; I want to try harder on making funnier videos.
Another video I made for debate class. Please tell me what you think about it; scenes, audio, etc.
Also the shadow they cast is out of perspective and it is just one big blob so it makes the buildings stick out even more.
Keep working and as said your color usage is very lovely, now you have to work on actually making the landscape believable and learning line hardness plus texture.
As for exaggerating, I agree on that, I went too tame with it but since this was my first time doing anything like this I was a bit afraid to do any exaggerating and instead wanted to make sure I could do them with a more comfortable (for me) expression.
As for references I referenced like, 9 of them, the rest of them I did from memory of facial muscles and how emotions pull the face in my head. I was trying to see how well I could work on the fly, without reference, but I still ended up needing some (sarcastic, drunk (I've never drank or really been around many drunk people ), how low I could make the bottom jaw go in angry, etc.) I'll definitely work at over-exaggerating more, because it generally looks nicer and conveys better in different circumstances (low lighting, minimalistic detail, etc.). I tried to get in wrinkles by the eyes but I had a hard time doing that without making the face look too "busy" but I'll see if I can't pull that off. I'm going to try to do another one of these since I'm kinda unhappy with this one anyway. My style and execution varied so much face-to-face that it's irritating (to me).
Thank you both so much!
-edited: I also just realized that I forgot to put shine in the eyes like I had planned on. That could have a lot to do with the "lifeless" thing.

I also started that but don't think I'll finish it.
Did that w/o refs.
I've been wondering if I should make a sketchbook or not. What do you all think?
It's going to be a key fob, but I have no idea what to do with the ends. Tied them together, and then the ends again, since I'm afraid it opens too easily (it's a present). Anyone got a better idea or a fancy, durable knot to end it?
Is it bad I can't draw anatomy for shit unless I have a reference ?
No, have you ever noticed you see faces every day yet it takes years to prefect them in drawings?
trying to get a hang of Colour layers
Does anyone happen to know any books or even anything online that's useful when trying to become better with things like foreshortening, and/or perspective? It's the only thing I'm having trouble with in my life drawing classes right now, I simply cannot draw it properly, regardless of body and how much it's been foreshortened.
Just was granted a $4,000 stipend and $500 allocated for supplies to do some art pieces over the summer for the university. Good day!
ohohoh it's a terrorist.
he keeps walking but hes going nowhere /sad metaphor I guess.
The legs look like they're rotating.
Please critic it.
Done with this forever piece, dumping the result from my sketchbook:
The aerial perspective on the distant objects is a bit off - the colours on the distant huts is too dark and the pier fades to blue far too soon
Her face is brilliant
I love the hair, it's fantastic!
Well instead of fixing the other i made a new one, Took about 3 hours and is 1080 by 720.
To anyone who notices the chem-planes, cheers.
I tryed to make it less eye hurting and a little bit atmospheric. This is only my second landscape done in photoshop. I want to add buildings though or a giant ship in the air, so any of those kinds of suggestions are good
I clicked the cancel button on that window -.-
