New Toy by Ridley126 New Toy by Ridley126
Entry for #ChallengEmotes Kitteh Challenge

Decided to have a go at making a giant emote, since I've never tried it before. Not sure about the shading, think I might of used too contrasting colours, so I might have another go at some point. :D

Very cute. I like your color choice, and if anything they could be more contrasting, not less. I think the paws should be closer in color to the cat, though--they are a little too light now.

I have to agree with other crit on it; the nose and to a lesser extent the mouth are too small in proportion to the rest. Making them bigger would make the cat even cuter. Also, since you already gave the cat cat-like pupils, maybe the eyes themselves could be cat-shaped; it could only improve the whole piece.

All in all, this is good, and I wouldn't say just for a first attempt, too. :)
What do you think?

For a first attempt at a large emote, you did very well. A bit more practice and they'll be even better.

I love this. Keep up the good work.

Great attempt at the emote. It's often hard to get to grips with shading larger emotes, but you've done pretty well.

However there are some things which you could do to help improve the emote's shading a bit more. I'd suggest adding in more dithering at the boundaries between the colour sections. You have a thin scattering of pixels, but it doesn't seem enough to really help blend the sections together. It works well at the bright spot, but as you've worked your way out you've kept the same sort of amount which isn't enough for circles that big.

I'd also suggest making the nose a bit bigger. With eyes that large it seems a bit out of proportion. As for the hands, they are nicely shaded but look too light in comparison to the body. Maybe use a selection of the darker colours instead.

But overall good job. The eyes look very cat like and the ears look great :icongdjobplz:
