RacoonsColor by Black85 RacoonsColor by Black85
colors on the racoons!!! For some reason, the mother and baby are the ones working the best. By adding the shadows it made the other ones work better though

I'll probably refine the shadows to get it more clean if my client asks for it!

Hehe, each character is so charming in their own way. xD Your style is so cool! And the lines and colors are great.

Yeah, I always do great job when it comes to draw for others, while, like right now, when it is about drawing for my third year film, I get stock, but REAAALLLY STOCK. I need help to push myslef back from it so I work on it as if it was for somebody else...

Oooh, what charming illustrations! :3

I love how each and every character has a different body and face shape and how you've drawn each mask, as *mattwileyart has already pointed out. That's such a clever was to differentiate gender, and it's something many might even miss!

I like the colouring style on each, slightly messy in a way, but it works wonderfully. I think the basketball raccoon girl is my favourite of them all.

I think, designwise, that the boy is the most original. The mother is drawn really well. I could have maybe done a better job for the clothes of the father and the girl. Anyways, I got pretty good feedback, no bad comment up to now, which means: they are great! :)

I'm happy about it and glad to see my clients get a job well done.

veruy understandable, i'm very glad for you

i'm doing a 3D and video-montage thing at the moment for a graphc studio (for 5 weeks already actually); they're are content about the 3D, but they keep dissing the montage.. pretty frustrating
did it like 10 times over already. i called them: i'm doing it completely different now, if they don't like it, they have to give the montage to the fulltime-guy
well see

i"m very happy you're getting good feedback :)
take care

J'aime comment la couleur a l'air d'être à l'aquarelle. J'trippe moins sur certains ombrages hachurés qui viennent briser cet effet... mais overall, great job, mon vieux!

I like how you've further differentiated the genders by the eye mask shape.

Thanks

Also notice: - The basic head shapes of the parents oppose in gender to the ones of the children. Horizontal head for the boy and mother, vertical for the girl and father. I did this choice to cover the "maybetoomuch"resemblance of the girl with the mother, and the boy with the father. This helped to make them ALL feel like in the SAME familly. Some genes are taken from the father, and the others from the mother ;)

- The contrasting stripes on the boy parallel with those of the mother, while they are more toned down for the father and daughter.

- The baby is a bit more different, with facial patterns mixing both parents. I noticed how in some families, the third child has more variations and resemble less to the other ones. I would have to make a bit more research on that to know if its often true enough though.

I figured the baby would be pudgy too, so I didn't say anything. See? There's an equation to it, that's why it works!

You're right! The face design of the boy is the most original!
