Daily Deviation

Given 2009-12-25
Opossum Christmas by *silverfox-5213 yet another brilliant digital illustration from this talented artist! Firstly, besides the fact that this is so handsomely rendered; the perspective is just downright awesome! The textures of the chimney unify the composition so nicely, and the charm of the characters involved is brilliant too! ( Featured by Katmomma )
Great illustration and perspective! I like your use of foreshortening. The only thing is that you could have made the chest area a bit bigger. Judging by his current physique, his chest looks like it would actually be 50% smaller than his head. I know my one bat character Scruff is designed this way, so maybe I'm misjudging since I don't know the actual design of the character. However, to emphasize the chest area, perhaps bring the right shoulder out a litte more to give him some more slack in the thorax. Hope that helps!

Other than that, great illustration!

My friend SuperStinkWarrior gives great advise about the well displayed foreshortening of the character in this shot. There haven't been many scenes of a characters going down a chimney from the interior since the Grinch in my opinion. Though it's hard to imagine any character having any sense about going down a chimney while the fire is still lit. If so, then smoke would become an issue for the picture. But perhaps the light source might just be a fake fireplace light display like the one I have her at home. Perhaps I over analyze. But regardless, This is still very festive while also being reminded of the original holiday chimney expert.

Is the possum bringing the orphanage toys or is it stealing them?
