Pumpkin Peter by albundyland Pumpkin Peter by albundyland
Hi everyone,

Here is my illustration for Halloween 2009.

Typically I take a long time to come up with an idea for an illustration, but this one came to me immediately.

I've included more detail in this one than I normally do, and I had a great time doing it.

As always constructive criticism is encouraged.

Thanks for looking!

Marco

This somehow made me think of Garbage Pale Kids, not sure why.

Thanks for mentioning that. I get the same feeling looking at him with the pumpkin guts all over his face.

One of the most original renditions of a nursery rhyme I've ever seen :)

Thanks for the comment! I was worried that the image may be a little to frightening for Children's Illustrators.

Nicely done! Love the face. :XD:

First off, I'm going to say that it was pretty hard to find some stuff to critique. But one thing that I did notice is that the pumpkin goo seems a bit out of place. Not that it's there, it just lacks the shading that the rest of the piece has. You know that awesome secondary lighting on his elbows? Go ahead and slap some of that one the pumpkin goo! It would make it look like it's more a part of the picture. :)

Also, I love how you made the pumpkins in the forground/background blurry. But I think that the very background should have something a little more than black/dark red. Maybe just some vertical brown stripes so it looks like he's in a barn? Or a little bit of a horizon?

Also, feel free to ignore this because it may not be your style, but I think he'd look great with some arm hair. :XD:

But overall, nice job! Looks great! :D

Oh man! I love the clean smooth rendering of his skin. The blurs are well done and yes this one is very detailed. This one by far is the best illustration I've seen you uploading.

Keep it up!!!

Thanks man. I tried the depth of field blur a few times because it wasn't looking right. There's a fine line between creating a depth effect and making it look crappy. ;)
