The three wise monkeys, with my own personal touch added. ^_^

I kept the background very simple, with the detail focusing on the monkeys themselves.

Update ~ I improved some of the background so that it doesn't look so empty. Curved the fading in the background, did some shading on the ground.

 better than anything i could do but, the monkies dont look like monkies enough

Thank you for the critque, I tried to improve upon the piece based on what you said. Wasn't sure how to fix the fur on the monkeys, so I left it as it is.

I feel the texture on the monkies s a bit too busy. The middle one looks like it has red rope with beads near the end of each piece comming out of it rather than blood. I'f you continue the gradient idea I'd suggest curving it like the floor. Also try cleaning up the edge of the triangles as the bases are smooth while the sides look like you were trying to show them cut ot of stone or something.


The gruesome take on the 3 wise monkies is very amusing, I also find it funny that the 3 monkeys was my orgional plan. Great minds think alike. (don't you just love corny cliche one liners like that)


I agree wih the idea of extra depth.

Thank you for the advice, I'll definitely continue to work on this, plenty of room for improvement.

Layout and concept are good, but while I'm 100% behind fleshing out the background, what you have right now doesn't have a strong sense of perspective or lighting. Each of the cobbled stones should get progressively foreshortened and pale as they get further from the foreground.

The jaggies in your outline look intentional, but only after zooming in.

I think there's still a lot of potential in this one if you keep working on it.

sux to be them

Well, I still have plenty of time. So, you make a good point, detailing the background would be a good idea .

 I think detailing the background with more contrast and lighting/shadow would enhance the picture, but I really like the stylized monkies and the gruesome spin on this concept. Good job!
