000a UnicornTales Backstory by SynDuo 000a UnicornTales Backstory by SynDuo

Click above to see how it all went so wrong

Welcome to California

Earlier this year I had to take a Psychology class, I drew this image to be based around a certain chapter... Which was mostly about Identity confusion and Bullying obviously...

Of course this image got me an A+ for the term, but it was mostly for the title page I created (hey I was bored, 20page report)

Anymoo Enjoy this not so old Un-submitted piece

Fashion is serious business... seriously.

Alrighty then! Since you've helped me out, I think it's time I return the favor. Bear with me though, I had to build up courage again to do these, haha!

I think this is a really neat, clean, piece of art. Nothing is lost during the whole thing, it is simple to read and understand and the message of it is clear. The expressions really match with each character as the bully has the face of apathy and the little girl is all confused. The poses are also well done. Great work with both the expressions and poses.
The coloring is always spectacular with you. Your combination of vector and painting really push the image out. I always love your values and how you use them. The highlights are nicely done as well.
The background might be a bit too simple for the characters, since the characters are detailed themselves. Though, I can probably see why you made the background as it is, to make the characters stand out instead of being lost in the background. So a simple background might be a plus. I think if this wasn't for a class, maybe cut out the "bullying sucks" text, to give the picture a bigger impact. This way, the image is open for interpretation. (If you want that of course. It's all up to you what you wanted!)

That's all I really have. This is a cute, funny, and meaningful piece that gets across the message. You did a fantastic job on it and you continue to amaze. :) Keep it up! (I really hope this was okay for a critique.)
What do you think?

That's right little girl. Maybe next time you'll think twice about wearing a pink-a-licous shirt. :iconhardcoreplz:

Is what happens when someone tries to bully youu cuz you look weak, but instead of that you encount a rabbid monkey, of course, his bully pride won't allow him to stop.
And since no one steps on me, i'm not gonna stop anyway XD.

The bad news is that he was stronger T___T

But you faced him :) that is badass... My bully problems always ended with them eating the floor... They aren't too fit down here in California, fat doesn't necessarily equal muscle.

Fat don't equal muscle? In my case, yes XD

Why all the bullies are fat? I guess they're production made in some factory that smells like boy's locker rooms :P

wow, that dude is really B.A.
I'm curious, what was the chapter about? What did it cover?
Reply
:iconsynduo:
SynDuo Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2010   General Artist
The chapter mostly covered Bullying, and what could lead to it, such as abuse at home or the need for attention, you know the jist of what could be covered in aggression and how it can transpire onto others through the victim. It was a fun chapter mostly since in class I was actually allowed to goto the whiteboard and draw images to make a point to my group in the projects and assignments we had to work on as a team... It was a fun class, and I had more drawings too used like this at the time. Thanks, Glad you liked my school stuff from earlier this year. :)
