Yay for Halloween!
My art teacher got mad at me for using color in this, because color wasn't in assignment.

Im so happy I colored it though~

This is a neat illustration with excellent coloring used to show texture. It's easy to identify the smooth pumpkin skin, the gnarly stems, and the soft dirt. The two carved pumpkins add a cute touch, and the expression of the larger one is what caught my eye first. The small details, like the nail on the sign post and the indents on the pumpkins also make a great difference.

The whole image is a bit unsaturated, however I am unsure if that is because of a scanner, or if it really does look like that in real life, or some other reason. The white lines on the stem of the large jack-o-lantern feels out of place because they aren't particularly close to a light source, and even then there is a lack of highlights that lead up to the bright shine. I also find it a bit odd that none of the pumpkins are attached to a vine despite all the thick branches I see, but that isn't a big concern.

While many a pumpkin patch has been depicted before, this one has the added mystery of 'who carved those pumpkins,' a fitting night setting and a mischievous jack-o-lantern make this an enjoyable Halloween sight.

This is a very intriguing and well done image of a pumpkin patch. The shading of the pumpkins is well done, and the faces are entertaining. It gives a spooky, eerie feeling and yet a warm, fun one based on the difference between the big jack-o-lantern and the little one. The use of different shading techniques for different aspects is a great way of doing things, and the color usage gives a good view. The only thing that threw me off was the sign, which looks like it may be a bit foggy when the rest of the image isn't- however, that also gives it the appeal of differentiating and may even add to the spooky theme.

For some reason, this looks WAY better in real life! I feel like your scanner muted some of the colours... It's way more vibrant in real life! (* o*)
But still a wonderful piece nonetheless. :)

They always look better IRL.

I bought a pretty high quality scanner too!
Darn technology just cant keep up, huh?

You might have to adjust your scanner's settings. What DPI can it scan up to? I can help you with these things~ :)
Hue and Saturation and Brightness are the things you'll have to adjust. When you find what levels you like, what makes your copic marker style stand out, the only thing you'll have to adjust is the hue for each picture from then on!

Awwh, I don't know, I mean, I really just BS'd the entire thing besides the girl (well, I kind of BS'd on her skirt and everything below that...) and the gum balls and the drink looking thing. I'm not too proud of it, so I don't know if I should post it haha!

Well, I can help you figure it out. :)

I'm thinking of going on the Drawn To Manga tour, which the payments are only $215 a month until June 2013. YOU SHOULD COME!!! Then you can buy all those things yourself and we can go crazy in Tokyo! Ghibli museum, Comic-City, FOOD annnnd moooore!!!

Hmmm, I'm not sure. My financial aid isn't helping me out (o_o) So I think I actually have to take the semester off to figure it out. (x_x);;;
