Perhaps I'm a bit late, but I still would like to express my opinion on your art.
Off course it's cute (it's Yoshi after all ) but I think the outlining is also very neat, since I can't notice any sloppy lines. The lighting is pretty good as well, but the underside of Yoshi's nose seems a bit darker than the rest of his skin. And then his face... his trademark smile, the cheerful, inviting look in his eyes, expressing his desire of receiving a big hug... so adorable... there's no way I'd refuse . Secretly, very secretly, it's one of my biggest dreams .
Thanks! I never see it as too late when it comes to people giving me their opinions on my work. Thanks for mentioning the linework; I put a lot into it, and sloppy lines are my pet peeve. Thank you so much for everything!
Funny actually. I was talking with my friends just yesterday and I was wearing my awesome purple Yoshi shirt and we were joking that whenever you poke my shirt I'd say "Yoshi!" just in his voice... and then my friend came up and hugged me. Told him "I think I'm becoming a hugger..." because recently a lot of people have wanted a lot of hugs in which I have obtained/given... hmm... I'm quite sure that Yoshi is a hugger...
