Superstar by Kraden Superstar by Kraden
:iconjeneara: and I are putting together little nick-nacks. A small series of which will be some colorful anthro-fruits charms. For bracelets and such.

The final size will be a little smaller than the shrunk version, but any thoughts or feedback on it would be great. Too complex? Too small? Too fruit-tastic?

If it were hung on a keychain, likely the first reaction this will elicit is "erm, why a pineapple?" Afterward, like so many 90s fads, it will grow on you.

It comes to me as a rather unexpected surprise, actually. First, it presents an unorthodox subject matter (Veggie-tales, anyone?) then it throws in an exaggerated pose for extra measure.

The line-art is certainly nothing to complain about, either, behaving more as an extension to the form than simply a container for it. The fill might appear a little gradient-meshed, though.

It sort of makes me curious as to what the rest of the set looks like. Rock star bananas would probably be expecting too much, even if we'd appreciate the innuendo.
What do you think?

I feel that it is not as obvious to someone looking at it that the fruit is supposed to be a super star or even an anthropomorphic character.

It however did make me want to take a second look at it so it did capture my attention which could work well on little items to be worn.

SOOO CUTE *flail*

It'd make a really cute button. Or sticker! As a keychain or charm type thing, it might be good to make it in a couple different sizes. Maybe one a bit bigger than that (for keychains and such), and one a bit smaller (for jewelry!)

But the dancin' pineapple's super-cute =)

*nods in agreement with tankard-2* there is a little bit too much going on there to be that small.

But it’s still cute.

Maybe make the mike bigger as it will be easy to make out when its small. As a pendant ppl will only see it for less than one second. (I make a lot of small stuff… it needs to be very simple.)

I love your comic stile. I can never give my animals emotion, let alone making fruit have emotion. Good work :)

*lots of Sqwee’s and hugs*

Lookin good - whilst I like it and the concept, I can't help but feel like the left leg seems a tad bit out of place.

I think with this style, one leg looks like fruit, whilst the other looks like a leg. Whereas both arms are borderline looking like leaves, or something abstract like additional fin-like things.

I think if its going to be shrunk it down, removing the left leg will give way to making a stronger silhouette (by having only one leg). Also, the reason I suggest one leg, is because to me it kinda resembles a carrot crossed with a pineapple - both in which have only one top and one bottom, with no limbs on a literal sense.

I also think that as a single legged creature that is so happy in its pose, it'd most likely appeal to audience's tastes as 'cute'.

However, if its more derived from a carrot (think of its 'long' shape), I'd suggest one leg. If its more derived from a pineapple (think of its texture), I'd suggest getting a rounder body and having legs using the same 'type' of object as the arms - to denote limbs all as one clear category.

I kinda mention this because if it'll go on bracelets n stuff, its gotta be eye-catching to a degree. So the (left) leg overlapped in the viewer's perspective (like what you have here) will be already very hard to notice - especially if from a distance.

An additional darker outline around the eye might also help the eye stand out, too. In the smaller version, it may be slightly harder to differentiate because the blue and orange is of a relatively similar brightness, hence you might consider either darkening the line work of the eye.

Sorry this longer and more in depth than what you asked for - nevertheless, hope this helps with some thoughts/feedback.

Keep it up, bud. And welcome back.

Bit more tracing on the left leg, maybe a line from the star around his face as though they are glasses perhaps?

But really, AWESOME. ;D
