Arnold and Helga Falling

Post by MadMadisson on Wed Jul 03, 2013 10:35 am

Click for image:

Just wanted your opinions on this. I thought we could use it for some advertisement banners or whatever we want further down the way. I keep seeing something off with Helga. I think it's the shape of her head and eyes (they're a little longer or stretched than they are in the show). Is there anything else you guys would probably change?

I think Arnold's ears are a bit big compared to how he's drawn in the show, but otherwise it look great. I'm glad to see a version not smushed into a thumbnail!

EDIT: Feel free to submit it to the DA page with this watermark so they know where it's from.

L'amour! You're style if very unique and I love it! I don't know how to say that it looks "cartoony" when the original series was a cartoon... but I digress. The artwork is lovely.

If what's bugging you about your drawing is Helga, it's probably her upper lip. Right now her lip is stubby-like. 4th/5th season Helga has her lip a lot more sharper and thinner, extending about an extra 1/4 width of of her head from the edge of her actual head. If that makes sense. Nonetheless I really like the drawing. What program did you use to ink it? Smile

Ah, I didnt notice Arnold's ears. Thats why I love getting fresh new eyes to spot those inconsistencies. Thanks so much pointing that out! Hopefully I'll have some time today to fix that up. I also wanted to add a background, but haven't decided on anything yet. I'll probably just recreate the blue splash they use for the credits, or some abstract pattern.


I'll use the watermark for sure. Thanks!

Thanks both for the compliments and critiques. I really appreciate it. I kept thinking it was the shape of her eyes and face, or the lengthy bangs, but fixing all that, plus the lips might really help!

I use illustrator for lineart, but you can use photoshop and/or sai to make nice clean lines. I just feel more comfortable with illustrator.

I went ahead and colored it after having changed those things you guys pointed out. I just need to figure out what to do with the background now. Thanks for the hep guys.

Edit: Derp, forgot the lines on Arnold's shirt. Guess I'll add that later. Also, any background ideas are welcome. Just keep in a mind I'd like to use it for advertising the sixth season.

Thanks Jer! I appreciate the nice compliment.

Still need to work on that BG and I might add a few more details on them like lighting and such. Plus I totally forgot the lines on Arnold's shirt. DX

Regardless, thanks again for the comment.

That's awesome with the colouring and adjustments!  Looks fantastic!  Originally, I would have suggested a sky background for this pictures... but if it's for advertising for the project (and thanks for that!), perhaps falling through a background of rough comic pages?  E.g. non-fleshed out comic panels, empty word bubbles, etc?  If possible, adding the HA6S logo to a corner of the page would be helpful as well.  Thanks so much for your amazing art!  Very Happy

Oh, the comic book pages is a great idea! I was thinking of making the logo behind them. Since i usually vectorize it, i'll give you the clean version of that logo once i finish it.

Thanks for the idea Tendra!
