Phoenix Investigative Squad by silver-dragonetsu Phoenix Investigative Squad by silver-dragonetsu
Commission for :iconkomi-tsuku: of his characters [left to right] Syl, Anton, Name, and Yoi.

This....was a lot of fun. I don't do group pictures very often, because, well, they are really damn hard to do. :D
Mostly because the line art and sketch itself takes forever to organize and finalize. Have to say, I quite proud of myself. I might just try to push myself to doing big groups more often. 83

I really feel like I need to go back and touch up the characters with more lighting effects on their clothes I really probably should. But every fiber of me is too pleased with the cell shading to de-glorify it with soft shade-lighting. I hope it doesn't clash to horribly with the coloring of their hair. ><;;;;;
I suppose I'll see what Komi has to say. Depending on the customers opinion, I will adjust it. Y_Y

Wow! =D
The cel-shading looks great! Don't change it!! Sometimes, overworking cel-shaded pics can kill the bold, simple aesthetic they have. The only thing I might add would be shadows on the ground to better ground the characters (versus floating in space) since the horizontal line in the back suggests to me that they're standing on a flat surface. But it's completely up to you.

ffff, I completely missed that! XD I'll have to go back and adjust it for some shadows. Gosh, I'm such a skits. Thanks for pointing that out. Wouldn't happen to have any suggestions for how I ougth to approch the shadows, would you? Should I go for something soft? Or cell shaped to fit with the rest?

Hmm, I think the cel approach would be better than soft (as in crisp edges over soft/foggy). A white gradient on the shadow to fade it out might be nice too, to make it less severe 'w' Hope that helps!

IT NEEDS TO BE CHANGED! NO ARTIST HAPPINESS!
Just kidding, just kidding. I'm very pleased with the overall effect. The colors and placement really draw the eye well, although Name's sweater is causing an optical illusion that is messing with my head. XD

NOOOOO! I KNEW IT! MY LIFE! IT IS OVER! *dies in the emo artist corner*
Haha, you really almost had me though..... >>;;;

Also! Name's sweater is totally a nano-halo-graph-er shirt. Newest fem-tech-fashion wear. It brainwashes perverts that like starin' at woman's chests.

Actually, I meant that the dark purple trim on the top gives it the impression that the shirt is actually in front of her, not on her. XD The whole depth perception thing.

This.... This is awesome! :heart::heart::heart::heart::heart:

I have to agree, the cell shading looks great as it is, along with the plaid pattern on the one girl's shirt... Good job! ^_^
