Cookie Monster


This is an image I worked on for fun. I just started roughing out an image in BW strokes in photoshop and let the form take shape. I had no idea what I was going to create just tried to find something in the mess of strokes and then pushed and pulled the shapes with contrast. Let me know what you think about the color? Too muted? Color is my biggest nemisis.

Oh my goodness this made me laugh out loud!! I love these monsters!
I think this is great and I'd have a hard time changing anything about it. The expression on his face is priceless, reminds me of my cat when he is caught doing something naughty.
The colors work, in my opinion. You've kept them rather muted with nice value contrasts, and I think that makes them blend together well.
The shinyness on his eyeballs is perfect -- really draws attention to his expression!

Hey, Steve.

I think the color looks good...although I could see going a tad lighter towards your light source. I like your color choices, contrast, and composition.

Don't change a thing really...maybe Pete has a good suggestion though. I think it is just fine all muted like that. It is all well matched in value, so call it done. :)
