Original this commission was just the cheetah, but I was compelled to draw more scenery until I built a whole world for him. So yeah, I kind of like how it turned out.
Commissioned by Fleet.
Fleet Cheetah by =ESDA06. This piece has such a great composition of color. It has such a great palette of diversity; from the detailed character with vibrant, energetic colors to the subtle shading and highlights. (
You might have a point, but it also gives it an intersting feeling on its perspective, how you see and feel the depth of the background but the strong black line of the character (I dont really feel it "flattens it" anyway) makes it stand out, more like an sticker that was added upon the original image, which makes it stand out more and adds an intersting visual effect to the picture. The image dosent feel realistic, but anyway it dosent look like the point of this picture: it isnt trying to look realistic, but to stand out with strong visuals.
