Return To Dreamland Wallscroll by HisuiVirus Return To Dreamland Wallscroll by HisuiVirus
Finally done!<3
Yet Iīm not all pleased with the result, but thatīs possibly because I started with this wallscroll over a half year ago. So Iīm asking for some critiques here.=) I canīt remember to have seen traditional made wallscrolls before and I started to get why: itīs just way more complicated than doing it with a grafic tablet.:/ Always looking how to match the next papers lineart and shit.
Basically I used 5 Din A 4 papers unter another.
When you take a close look, youīre sure to find the edges where I connected the sheets of paper.=D

Lineart: Copic Multliner
Colours: Copic Sketch Marker
Edited: SAI, Wacom Bamboo Tablet


Kirby Đ Nintendo/Hal

Well, this is a really stunning and awe-inspiring piece! I'm just going to go ahead and start my nit-picking from the top..
Magolor Soul looks great, especially that shading.. the only thing that strikes me odd is the left side of his mouth.. I like how you coloured that sword Kirby; the colours blend well on him, but what's up with that white streak on the sword?

Below Kirby, the small details really pop; I like how much detail you put into the rest of the cast flying on Landia (even when something is farther into the background).
Proportionally, the Lor Starcutter looks excellent; the perspective is spot-on and so are the colours (I like how you did the glass on the window!). The shading on the bottom of it looks a tad bit sloppy, however (you seemingly combined 2 different shading styles..). I like how you did the stars coming out of it, but one of them looks a bit lopsided..

Ok, now for the very middle of the scroll.. I like how you put the main cast in the middle, including Magolor, and the poses you chose fit everyone well (Bandanna Dee flying with his spear-copter is a nice touch). DeDeDe's hammer caught my eye; I like how yoy gave it a woody texture. However, I think you need to practice colouring his robe; some parts of it look a little off.

The underwater scene looks fantastic; I like the bluish tints you gave everyone to give the illusion that they're underwater (and of course, the bubbles are a necessity, and they are layered around the scene well). The fish boss (whom I forgot his name) looks perfect. Nothing needed to nitpick here.. I like the seaweed, by the way.

And finally, we come to the big baddies at the bottom... your skills really reach their point of perfection here. The shading and the colours are at their best at this point. I really like the poses and the expression on the monkey boss's face (again, forgot his name). Galacta Knight is drawn well, but the white line across his face looks a bit odd to me, and the wings seem a bit too bright (you can barely see the details on them). I like the details on Grand Doomer, especailly the feathers, but the face is unsymmetrical. Finally, the bottom could have been cropped out since it's just a big black void, or you could have made Grand Doomer bigger to fill up the space.

Overall, this is a fantastic, professional-looking wall scroll. It's way better, in my opinion, than a lot of wall scrolls they sell on the internet (for games, of course. They don't have this much detail). I've really enjoyed looking at your artwork and style, and this wallscroll is a monumental achievement for you.

With the uploading of your line art as well it's wonderful to see a progression of your work and how you started; however, I would have liked to see perhaps a halfway mark. Perhaps taking a picture when only a few characters had a minor amount of shading or some of the simpler layers of colors had been put down. I also feel it could do with a nice mat, or small border along the edges, as the color from edge to edge is a bit overwhelming. Other than those 'opinions' I feel the balanced of picture is nice, it's heavily weighted at both ends and light in the middle.

The image is clean, professional, and very well done; it is gorgeous to look at and remains appealing to the eyes from top to bottom; you stayed true to your own style without losing the style and emotion of this particular game. Eacher character has been portrait perfectly from Magolor Soul's eyeball mouth to DeDeDe's fluffy coat to the shimmering orb in the Doomer's mouth. The colors are dramatic and bold where they need to be and light and soft in the waters and whites.

It feels odd a bit, to rate by particular option in the deviation; but I tried.

Vision: Beautifully laid out, excellent colors, wonderful balance.
Originality: Nothing like it, lovely hand drawn, an adorable original style.
Technique: A border I still think would add something to this, as well as a little bit more to show how it became this? ( I really don't like this part of judging cause I feel everyone has their own techniques. and how they do things)
Impact: Beyond impressed, it's stunning and fantastic.

This is the most awesome Kirby wallscroll that I have ever seen!! You have managed to put all those characters in the picture and made them really look like they belong there (hopefully you understand what I mean XD) and I love all those poses and that every single character has so many details but I have to wonder how you were able to do them all maybe you are just so awesome X3 I can't do anything else than just admire the whole picture all those details, colours, shadings, backgrounds, your style everything in this wallscroll is just brilliant!! I'm bad at writing comments and I don't have words to describe this awesomeness but I love this <3 keep up your beautiful work!!
