Hahaha this is a great picture! Itīs spot on to the the line where J.K. Rowling wrote about the zoo-visit where she described Dudley to look similiar to the gorilla. Perfect fit!

Haha, lovely resemblance between the two. A great illustration. I've never seen this draw before. (Which is very refreshing) Your shading looks great but I'm a little curious about your choice with the black outlines on the boys that only cover parts of them, it doesn't really add up to me. And also I feel that the bricks could be given a personal touch to match up with the rest of your lovely shading. Great work.

Hope my crit gave you something to work with.

Its interesting you point out the black outlines and the brick wall, the two elements that I really dislike about this.

I do like the flattening effect lines can have, especially around more modeled color, but I think black was a little too strong in contrast and maybe I should have changed it. Or taken it out entirely. I still like to play around more with heavy shading and strong outlines in at least some of my work to find the right balance.

The brick wall as it is now was more of a placeholder until I could go back and finish, but as sometimes happens, I completed the rest and decided the wall was "good enough" and left it. Ah well.

Thanks a bunch for the critique, they are always appreciated. :)

Lines and bold outlines can indeed be very interesting and fun to play around with. But I do think that if you want a more 'finished' and complete look of things you should keep it kind of consistent, either lines pretty much all over or nowhere. But hey, the experimenting is fun!

You're welcome, I'm glad you appreciated it.
