Culinary Crew



Some pirate chef guys I had some fun with a while back. Looking back, I think I could simply shapes even more. Coulda made some better decisions. I dig the colors though I don't think it would work for a cartoon. Too washed out and restricted.

Hey boobage!

I like the salmon color better! The yellow background kinda makes it difficult to read certain lines.

Love the 'Arrghh! Ye kiss me!' guy!!!

The pink is better.
Noooo, conditioner is better.
Stop smiling at me swan!
The Yellow one is definately hard to see. The Pink one pops, and there's a better sense of shading and depth to it.
And I'm glad you enjoyed my explanation of things you know nothing about. :)

Very , Vey nice.( What do you mean by "some pirate guys you had fun with ? " Are these based off real life pirate guys that you know ? ) Excellent work. I would maybe think about darkening the bg values to pop the pirates more.The bg elements are a little too close in value to the foreground pirates in some parts. ( Please don't send your "pirate friends "after me for saying so cause i really like these.

I remember these guys. That was an OLD outsider project. A Ben Savage topic. Dang.

Thanks dudes!

Yessir Jav - I have a more saturated one too but the colors were all over the rainbow. They seemed blanced enough, but I guess I was just leanin' towards somethin' more pale and harmonized. You know, like a pirate... :)

There's definitely a struggle with the characters and BG colors right now though.
