Spiders On A Leaf by A-M-A-P Spiders On A Leaf by A-M-A-P
Ever wonder what the perspective is like for spiders and lady bugs in the grass ? I had fun making this! It took me around 10 hours to complete. Break here and there of course! Also, don't over look this scene so quickly as I have added a little humor to it ;) (Wink) !! Considering I do dark fantasy, some wanted to know if I could do something totally different?! And the answer is: Of course I can!! La la la la 

I hope you all enjoy this one! Feel free to download it and use it as a wallpaper if you want!

This is really adorable and wonderfully done.
Vision: Very bright and lovely colors. Placing the ladybugs in there with the shimmering dew drops make it so that your eyes go around the piece.
Originality: It literally is just super cute and I love seeing images that don't deal with a huge deep conceptual meaning. Sometimes it's nice seeing something simplistic.
Technique: As much as I love what you have done here, you place a lot of reality to it, but then the spiders come off as cartoonish and seem to be separate from the overall piece. It adds humor, as you stated, but it would have been nice to see them as realistic as the ladybugs.
Impact: Once more, it's just so freakin' adorable! Love the way you used the different shades and textures for every bit of green. Your eyes constantly moving to each object.

My first critique.

I think your work has everything in order. The framing is nice, the amount of empty space makes the small insects stand out. I like the layout with the line from the top left to down right, brings the piece together. The leaf down on the left creates a nice base connecting leaves coming from left and right and the two thirds length adds to the pleasingness. The colour scheme is pleasing, and the addition of the red ladybugs adds just the right amount of contrast. Textures used are splendid for their applications. The lines are clean, and the shadows under the leaves bring the leaves forward. The shadows don't appear to be formed from single lightsource. The waterbubbles look realistic, and I especially like the addition of the spider behind the one bubble on the left. The separate spiders intentions are brought alive with simple yet good facial expressions. The spiders, too, jump out of the piece thanks to their light body and shape.

Aw, so cute! And I looked over it carefully to make sure I saw each funny scene, my favorite being that poor spider stuck in a water droplet. XD

Great work! It looks really, really good! :D

I am by no means a pro or something, but you asked for it so im gonna give you my opinion! =)

Firstly i really like the first impression, there is much to see so it took me a little while to discover everything, i really like that. I also like the technique and your style, the highlights of your raindrops are very well done and fit good into your picture, but in my opinion the spiders do look a little bit out of place. Maybe you could have done them in a similar way like the bugs, and keep their cheesy face.
Also you could try to give the leafes a more natural outline since they look a little bit edgy.
It still doesnt make your work less good, i really like your little details on the raindrops and the cute and funny atmosphere, all in all well done =)

The piece in itself is wonderful and cute, I love the ladybugs. It's playful and the colours are soft comforting. Nice details, but I do would want some more "life" in the spiders, they look a little stiff. Keep it up. C:

You asked me for an opinion, and here it is:

This pieces is quite warm-feeling... I like the concept a lot! But I must tell you that the spiders look too... sticky, like the movement created by the whole background and the ladybugs didn't reach them. But I'm so in love with the textures and those beautiful ladybugs! The concept itself is so well planned aswell as the placement of everything, perhaps except the shadows you gave the grass... they take out the feeling of depth you had created. Nonethless, I'm so looking forward to more pictures like this one!

I really don´t know how you did this! I really like the textures adn the blurred background and the idea itself is brilliant :D I also really like the drops and how you did the reflections! The ladybugs give the whole piece some extra-depth and act as beautiful contrast-points! The textures you used on the leaves are really well applied :clap: The spiders are really sweet and I love every single one of them! I too like how the composition of the picture makes the spiders and the ladybugs stand out and still doesn´t force you to look at a certain place. Beautiful piece :clap:

I think it's really cute, but the spiders do blend into the grass a bit. I think this is a great shot at something lighthearted and by all means, explore it more!

this is fun =) you should try to do children illustration if you have the opportunity, it should match with this kind of illustration pretty well I am a dummy!    it's reminds me of this www.youtube.com/watch?v=iWNMc2…  . The thing that bugs me  ( héhé ) is the very strong shadow under the leaf, otherwise it's nice =) ( I don't know if my sentence really make sens but hey Icon - 268 Vincent on Caffeine )

Thank you for asking for my thoughts. The moment I saw it, it made me smile. I think your abstract leaves and your funny spiders are awesome. Your dew drops are to die for, especially the two with the spider reflected in them. The red ladybugs are a very good contrast to all the greens. The placement of your leaves draws the eye to the main character (the spider), as does the sparkle in the drops. It's a fun piece and pleases me greatly, it's a good feeling you've left us with.Love :happybounce: Heart +fav
