Best Day: Graduation

Hi all. Here's my fixed version of my best day ever. I added Columbia's media building in the back because I think it's the most recognizable and it's pretty. The building is a little far back now that I look at it, so I'll move it a bit closer. I still have yet to add the leg and all the debris in in the dust trail. I just wanted to get color down and make sure I'm on the right track before I add in detail. I think it was Joe who compared the picture to the Road Runner in the last class. I love that cartoon and decided to base my color pallet on it. The final piece will be done in flat colors, though I might leave the dust cloud transparent like it is now. Again, if you have any suggestions feel free to share. Any feedback is much appreciated.


  1. I actually think the distance of the media building is fine. I'm sure once you add the leg and debris, it'll balance out well. Plus, I'm sure you'd want to be as FAR from Columbia as you can and FAST.

  2. I know you want to keep colors flat but are you planning on adding any shadow? You can always use a cel shading technique to keep it flat but still add a bit of depth (next ill teach you how to make hot ice!), look at the way cartoons tend to do it.

  3. I'm glad you added a Columbia building in the background. I think it looks really fun and creative. There does seem like there needs to be a bit more depth between you and the building though.
