How exactly is that unexpected weight? You normally see angels doing that.

This is pretty much the most common angel imagery there is, not unexpected in the least.

I was thinking somebody looking up to see a piano falling on them, the piano blowing up, and a small piece of shrapnel crushing him. We'll see if I actually have time to even start that.

I don't think you understand. It's not unexpected. Angels have wings anyway. They can "sit" wherever they want, not just a cloud.

How many pictures have you seen that shows an angels falling through a cloud he tried to sit on? It's expected that an angel will be able to sit on a cloud, even if it is a physical impossibility. What would be unexpected is that an angel falls through the cloud, seeing as how we don't see that many references of angels falling through clouds. This challenge says unexpected weight, not real weight, which would support your case. However, in your case the your view of unexpected is expected, so you have to do the unexpected by doing the expected...wow, that's a little confusing...

Birds don't sit on clouds because they are a real animal. On a cloud (heaven) is literally the most likely place for an angel to be. Falling through a cloud would be unexpected for an angel.

@mdog95: How about just having the piano floating in the air above his head? The other idea seems a bit much, unless you're planning on animating it, in which case.........you have my blessing...

@Airstyle

I was planning on animating it. It's why I'm questioning whether I'll have time to make it or not... It'll be cool if I do. If not, I'll think of something else that will take less time to make on Saturday :P

His nipples should be off to the left and right a little more. You have them dead center, from what it looks like.

Ah, Art history!  The class where you were asked to scrutinise naked people quite regularly.  Even at the college level there was plenty of childish giggling.
 
Nifty idea, Grain.  Not sure about the readability of your stylized one.  Buddy.
 
Air - Maybe his own irl nipples are centered?

Yeah, you guys are eight about the nipples, I jsut added them to see whether it would look right for him to have nipples at all.
Also not sure about the position of the genetalia.

would be cooler if the kid were bumping the sumo guy out with his gut or something. right now I think 'unexpected force' rather than 'unexpected weight', due to the emphasis on the kid's push rather than him displacing the sumo due to mass.

Yes. I can barely tell what that is, even knowing it's an angel. You might want to make both the cloud and the angel larger so we can really enjoy the hilarity!

basic WIP. not sure about the palette, i'm kinda just trying random colours as i go. CC would be appreciated.



edit: Btw it's an Ark shipwrecked on clouds. There's an angel in the little boat which i might just remove, and focus on the actual ship.

edit: still not sure about these colours, but i added some more detail



edit: ffs forgot about max 20 colours, i'm at 30 :(

edit: nerfed some colours, and the angel. I think it's more unified now, though i think the boat is now a bit harsh.



Could still use some CC
