Deep in the Forest by lordzasz Deep in the Forest by lordzasz
"Deep in the forest there lived a skunk named Fluffy. Each morning he looked for a friend, but no one wanted to be friends with a skunk."

It's Fluffy! This is another concept illustration for my story, trying out a more traditional style. ^^

Critiques and comments greatly appreciated! :wave:

Ah, this is a very touching pic. That is good. Emotional pics work well on people. And cute, sad animals automatically get our sympathy. Walt Disney said that there must be tear for every laugh. A good story needs some sad moments. Yet this pic is very colorful so it doesn't make anyone feel too sad just a bit. :nod:

Balance is a thing many sad pics need. Sadness without hope isn't good. You have it in this pic.

This character of yours is a well drawn and really soft, fluffy and round one. Watchers feel a need to hug it and make it feel better. That sympathy is good. And that butterfly is a nice symbol of hope.

The background is nice and colorful yet not too complicated. It fills the space and guides the attention to Fluffy. That works.

Stories like this with cute yet lonely animal characters are really common do I even dare to say cliched but this seems to have what it takes to stand out in a group. :)

I wish you good luck with this project of yours. :glomp:
