The Best Toy by Pink-Diapers The Best Toy by Pink-Diapers
I don't know about the rest of you, but when I was little (and even now :P) My favorite thing to play with was always a just an ordinary cardboard box. I wanted a pic that could capture that sense of fun.

Overall I'm not that happy with this pic really. I think my figure work is a little weak. Also our girls looks a little "horsefaced". I think that the Background was a little too realistic looking as well. It's a little jarring since the figure is more cartoonish.

30%

Hm. The girl in the picture does seem a tad out of place against the background, but I don't think that this piece merits a lowly 30%, personally.

Concept-wise, I believe that this piece accomplishes the goal you set out for, capturing a more childish sense of fun with the common idea of the box something came in being the thing most fun to play with. The concept is well-established, but it is a favorite with good reason; it reflects reality quite nicely, and I think everyone remembers a time in their life when a big cardboard box proved the source of a wonderful afternoon. This picture resonates well with that, in my opinion, especially drawing the girl half-way into the box as you did.

As is so often the case when reviewing your work, the character design is excellent; I believe your delivery of ABs just continues to improve, as you're able to make adult or teenage characters look cute in a childishly innocent way. I believe your character design skills simply continue to improve as you keep drawing. Rather than horse-faced, I find the girl's expression very cute, especially in how sincerely happy she seems. The patterns on her shirt and those big braids with bows in them are perfect for invoking a very sweet and innocent feel, and as usual you draw a very appealing big, fluffy diaper that conforms to her pose well. The fingers on one hand seem arched a little oddly, but overall her pose looks natural to me and the whole shot is saturated with cuteness.

The wall itself looks a little out of place, especially against the girl and her box, but I think that the floor works for this shot, and I must applaud you for your attention to detail there; the patterning looks real and very consistent, and you did a good job with the shadows in play here, something I don't normally take notice of with your pieces.

Overall, I'd personally rate this closer to an 85% or so. The wall in the background does seem out of place in realism and vibrancy compared to the rest of the picture, but the character design is lovely as ever, and the floor element of the background is nicely detailed and meshes better. As a whole, I'd consider this a very successful tribute to fond childhood memories. Splendid work as usual, Pink-Diapers. :clap:

I used to play like that when I was a baby back in the 1980's whilst living in the Cayman islands with my pearents, only difference was I am a male.
I remember the giant value packs/boxes of pampers babydry diapers because when it was emptied I used to crawl into it and turn it upside-down and we used to use it as a play box.

Just some of my memories from my early childhood years from 1980-1983.

Oh sure!  Think every kid plays in a cardboard box at some point in their lives.

That's cool!  I'm always happy to hear about positive memories.

this is an awesome picture due to her cuteness and expression of not having a care in the world as long as she is diapered. Keep it up

I kinda like the background to be honest with you. It looks almost like you used 3d software to make it.

I think you may be a tad to hard on yourself this is certainly better than a 30% You certainly were able to catch the feel you were going for (Which is probably the most important thing in art) It evokes a sense of Nostalgia and remembering when we all used to play with boxes like that. It's well drawn and colored

Yeah, That's I think what bothers me about the BG. It's out of place I feel.

You might be right though ED, I may be, being hard on myself. It seems to be going over much better then I thought it would.

You have fought hard and practiced lots to get to where you are. You are awesome and don't let anyone tell you otherwise (Including yourself). You produce a high quality picture. Aiming to improve is a good thing but don't let it take away from what you have accomplished.

I get too down on myself. I have worked hard, I guess I always feel like I could have done better. But I do try my best on every piece I do (most of the time) so I shouldn't worry about the flaws too much.
