Thick as Thieves

"When they were younger Rav and Zane were quite the schemers. Rav was usually the brains behind the operations and Zane usually carried the plans out."

Tis' a day of celebration. With a very special birthday present for my wonderful friend Rav. You've made me smile when I'm down and seen me through some incredibly rough spots of my life. This is for you, because everyone needs a little something on their birthday. No matter how big or small. Let there be cake and much rejoicing!

    The lighting, the perspective... the detail in the crates... this is amazing~. Really nice job, you're really improving.

      I feel I'm starting to figure certain things out slowly. I didn't use a photo reference this time but made a model in sketchup to try and get the perspective right. Lighting was from imagination and logic. Interestingly enough my illustration professor didn't really like this image. He felt I was over rendering the image and making things very muddy. Whereas a small illustration I did for an assignment (which I'll upload later) and only did flat color on, he preferred more. I showed him this again after I finished it and he said it was much better than before but still not entirely successful.

      Eh, either way, thanks Jirby. ^w^
