Lyse's Updated Sketches

First, I want to apologize for not having adequate sketches to present yesterday. I was under a wrong impression that the background/figure sketches were due monday, and only in-progress sketches were due on Friday; I'm really sorry for my screw-up.

Second, I read the comments you guys left, and I hope these sketches are a bit more of what you were looking for. I took Gant's advice and got rid of the whole circus theme, and Daniel's by making their heads not quite so large; so hopefully these will work a bit better.

These new sketches are girls wearing modern Japanese street fashion, with backgrounds featuring landscapes and architecture of Kyoto shrines and temples.

Fantastic!!!!! So good. Thanks for doing the extra work. Don't worry, it won't be so tedious the second time around. The colors look great! The figures are well intergrated. Great job.

I also wanted to add that I'm really pleased with how you considered the assignment. Poses and colors play off of the environments. There is nothing lazy about your backgrounds. You used great references. The pieces look like specific articles. All around great.

these are soooooo terrific! i saw the top of the first one and i was like "orange? really? i'm not sure" and then i scrolled down and i saw the entire glorious piece and my lips started doing the strangest thing.

that's right, i smiled. for the first time in TWENTY LONG YEARS. maybe tomorrow i'll try eating again. but i have to remember, baby steps.

but in all seriousness, these are really beautiful. and they've improved in a huge way. i think tomorrow there are still some things i want to say about certain little things, but it's knitpicking really...

great coloring job. blah blah blah. i love you.
