WIP: Emulating Artist "iLKke"
When I first saw iLKke's Art I was pretty inspired. Maybe because I myself feel comfortable with this type of style. When I saw the name iLKke... I thought of ...Eye Lick.. I dont know why, but strangly I went with it.

I have two questions...

1 - Can we copy the palettes of the artists? (I think it belongs to their own style I want to emulate...)

2 - Can we adapt the work we were working on until today to the challenge?

Yes, but I think the simple act of choosing the right colors is an art. I would not steal the merit to another artist without his allowance.

But in this case I'll do it...

Theme: The Goonies. No doubt youll see Sloth here. Along is One Eyed Wiggles..Me..Surely the pirate is better known as One Eyed Willie in the movie. HaHa, joke, funny...Saw a few stamp pieces in iLKke's collection. Thought I'd incorperate that in here with willie trying to eat it. Still have alot more to do with this.

Maybe he meant terrific, instead of terrible. Odd that the "terror" root branched into two opposing words.

Yes I wanted to say Terrific. Terrible in french can mean "awesome" or "terrific", I made this mistake because this word have the same spelling in english.

I really think you should move your piece upwards to make more room for grass.

fool doesn't use those colours that pastelised, even in the Hatching piece. Have a look at the way he uses his colours, as well as the ways he renders wood and grass.

My new WIP
 =  OR
 
I am not sure if i like it enough to want to submit it and i am also not sure how i can improve it any further. A 16 color limit is a bit more difficult than i wanted it to be for this piece. I still need to change the color of his kimono.

It's still a WIP though.

I am inspired by the anime style sprites of Jinn, though I couldn't make a palette like him and shade like that, so I will need help of you guys make it better :)

That's very pretty. Maybe you should try to raise the saturation a bit to make it more fool-ish



Also Fool doesn't often use such dark colors I think

I have changed round rocks into mountains. The result is not quite good as Fool's style but I've taken his colours. Clouds are similar too.

I haven't copied any texture! I've taken the style and colours...

If you pay attention you will notice the rock is not repeated of the original... (Than means I'm good... Isn't it?)
