Daily Deviation

Given 2013-11-12
The Facts in the Case of E. A. Poe by ~mscorley, with its striking composition and colors, is a perfect cover for an equally charming tale. ( Featured by y2jenn )

would be good for a kids book version, a bit cartoony for adults

Well its a bit of a humorous story in a way. Just what the client wanted

Dont misunderstand me, im not saying the work is bad, merely that it seems more apropos to young adults or younger.

Cartoons are for everyone. :P

And even taking it in the sense you meant, I don't really think it is either way. If I saw very distorted looking cartoony people or cute fuzzy wittle bunnies with a magical rainbow, then maybe yes.

cartoons ARE for everyone, no argument, but if you are creating the cover for a book, certain expectations are reasonable. this is fine work, but the context i get from this is a 8th grade classes copy, not one for a collection of fine works.

take that as you will.

you are young so cant differentiate between different drawing styles, but i assure you theres a difference.

Alrighty then. To each their own.

Don't know how old you think I am, but sure if that's what you think. ^^;

I'm not dumb, you know, so don't underestimate by ability to do anything...especially a thing like that, I'm not blind and there's a reason I'm on an art website, I wouldn't on be here if I couldn't differentiate a thing about art.

Well actually, if I didn't give a fig about the different styles of art or learning to differentiate them, I probably wouldn't have joined an ART website. That's simply what I meant. I haven't clearly proven whether I really can or can't to you, but you immediately assumed I can't, and that peeved me quite a bit.

The only one sounding "jejune" is yourself at the moment. I'm not the best artist, but I'm not seeing any art from you, Mr. Artistic Genius. I would have thought someone who thinks they know so much of everything would know things along the lines of not being "quick to judge". By your comments I'd think you're one of those know-it-all fifteen year-old boys that think they're so cool and elite. Though I can't be quick to think that, and won't allow myself to think it's true, unless it does end up so.
