I love what you did with the purple clouds and the whole crayon texture, more towards the horizon, it looks really fluid and neat ^_^
Love the color pallet for the sunset and how you did the buildings' skyline. It does seem a bit, like you said, that the character is a bit 'out' of it, but it doesn't take away from the rest, so it's good.
Really? Well, what sort of texture would you've preferred using in this, then?
I think this one works really well because, if it was something more intense, it could turn out to be sort of distracting. Conversely, if it was a dimmer, shallower texture, there would be no density or depth to the sky, a well, so I think you've got a good look and balance, even if you don't find it ideal.
Wow, beautiful as usual! Great skyline you got there! I like how the character looks "shiny" compared to the rest of the picture without looking out of place. Or at least, not much out of place. Perhaps little bit, but you mentioned that in your coment to blaZe, I guess. I actually like the urban theme
kinda messed up her lighting a bit, though. originally, I was planning on adding two source lights here; one on the pole, and the sunset. She only has one light source, however, which is the light from the pole, and only ambient light from the sunset. I also forgot to add the lighting on the ground from the pole, even though I did add two shadows of suzuha from both light sources.
I see. I actually didn't even notice the pole was a lightsource and thought that the odd way the character was drawn was just in sake of the drawing, since the lighting from the subset only would probably leave a dark figure. It might make the character fit in less, but the character herself looks rather good this way. Of course, I can see why you don't like it as much as I do: you're the artist. In this case that's normal. I still like it, tough.
