Best Dream Ever - Dr. Pepper by StickFreeks Best Dream Ever - Dr. Pepper by StickFreeks
I drink it in my dreams!... With a side of imagination!~

Wow! I stayed up so late just to work on this... I wasn't sure why I had the feeling I wanted to enter... I just kind of wanted to! I had a blast drawing this, and even if it doesn't win anything, I hope you guys get some enjoyment out of it! ^-^

I wanted to keep it short and sweet for those hasty New Yorkers, but I also wanted there to be some visual beauty for those of us that like to stare at advertisements. (I know you're out there, ad stalkers.)

I tried to put all my advertising knowledge and subconscious messaging artistic ability to work!

I tried to keep all the colors centered around Dr. Pepper, and I kept all the text lower case because that seems to be "The thing to do" among advertising agencies. Maybe it appeals to a younger generation? :meow:

In any case, I put my own personal flair on it with bubbles I oh so love in pictures, floating things, shiny lights, bows, and twirly straws. (Don't they make you ever so joyous? There's nothing like drinking out of a twirly straw!)

Wish me luck! ^-^
I just want it to make people happy...

I drew everything in the picture, except for the Dr. Pepper logos which are trademarks of Dr. Pepper. Obviously. That can was a real pain. XD

NOW I WANT A GLASS OF DR. PEPPER SO BAD! ;w;
I'll have to search the house for some.... and an oversized glass... and an oversized straw.... because that's apparently how I drink it. :meow:

You have good expectations when it comes to art, but.
If you spent a bit longer on your line art making the lines less, well squiggly, or sloppy, it'll look a lot better. I see a lot of uneven lines.

And her ear, is tilted down, when it should be pointed up against the head. Her hands, also don't make sense to me.

The fingers are too long and pointy and it doesn't seem to be any.. Wrist joint. Try looking up reference points for hands. If you have to, put your hand in the same exact position you want it to be in then take a picture and then use that as reference.

The breast is also too low, almost drooping. Try and make it higher up.

And there doesn't seem to be a neck?

Also, your coloring on the actual character looks rushed, almost as if you were more focused on making the glass the key focus of the picture, which it is.
Neater lines, and coloring.

Try focusing more on the line art, spending a couple more minutes on making the lines less squiggly and neat, will improve your art greatly.
What do you think?

That would be the BEST dream ever. The worst Nightmare however would probably be a giant Mr. PiBB (or any generic Dr. Soda for that matter, LOL)

Sweet! I'd love to have this dream!
My favorite part of this piece is the overall concept. Once more, best dream ever! The can looks a little rushed and sloppy on the outline, as opposed to the rest, but that doesn't detract from it much! Very nice!

Thank you so much! It was very late, so my hand wasn't nearly as steady as normal on the can... but it does give it a nice hand-drawn look I suppose. ^-^

I love random comments like this~ Thank you every so much for brightening my day (night?)

Kind of funny that... you see... I don't really run that much, but when I do, I apparently run really weird? I sort of guesstimated how I might look running over there, and that's what I got! I think it's sadly accurate. ;w;'

Um, if your hand is like that, it's not really running anymore, it's flouncing.

You'd only be able to run like that if your wrist was broken.

Okay... flouncing then? I guess I flounce... or gallop? It's like... frollicking... whatever it is. I get from point A to point B!

Oh! There's this lovely Lens Flare effect in Photoshop that I've been making use of. I can draw my own lens flare, but the photoshop one turns out so much nicer. :3
