Taste Of DrPepper by RickyXavier Taste Of DrPepper by RickyXavier
What does DrPepper taste like? It taste like a party contained in a single bottle. Too early for Mardi Gras? Non sense, DrPepper is the essence of Mardi Gras. So lets take it to N.Y.C. "DrPepper the ultimate party drink!!!"

tools of choice:
Prisma Markers
Rag Vellum

Taste Of DrPepper by *RickyXavier

CATEGORY: Contests / 2011 / Dr Pepper NY Mural Contest:

Sent to me by another CV, I have been patiently awaiting the final results to be posted, so I could safely DD this beautiful-traditional art piece (to DD an entry during a current dA-sponsored contest would disqualify the entry). Using Prisma Markers and Rag Vellum, the gorgeous colors and happy feelings are demonstrated in the ongoing party. I especially like the addition of the artist tools along with featuring the Dr. Pepper branding in the entry. ( Featured by WDWParksGal )

Seriously? Did you really write this on a DD?
There is an FAQ for this, if you'd care t read it. [link] so If you truly disapprove of this beautiful festival of colours, note $Moonbeam13
Otherwise, this comment was not only rude, but childish. Please refrain yourself from saying such things in the future, it's kind of a jerkish thing to do when somebody's just gotten a feature.
There are much better ways to advertise yourself. Join groups or forums!

If she did, it's just troll logic. Whatever the case, no one insults a better piece and advertises their own obvious bad artwork and expects people to take it seriously. Worst comes to worst just report her, telling her off is just feeding the troll.

Very colorful and fun composition. I think though some shift in the saturation of the colors would make your focus point pop better and seem more colorful.

really great. Sorry, AMAZING.
The colors, the people, very modern.

The only thing that bothered me was the green/yellow hat with the purple fleurs-de-lis. It's too rectangle...y- if that makes sense. It's the most 'geometric' of this piece when everything else is very organic in how you composed and painted them. that's the only thing that seems a little out of place. That's about it, well done.

Wow what a colorful piece! I really like the theme of party in a bottle as well, very creative :nod: I think you really got the feel of a party in this piece and feels like a real Dr.Pepper advertisement. I like the fact that the viewers eyes can just wander around the page multiple times and see something they didn't before. I also like how you mixed in some realism with abstraction, it gives the picture a more wild feel. just a couple of things could use work, one of the eyes in the mask on the very bottom right looks a little too tilted over towards the other. then the gal with the purple feathery hair looks like one of her arms is just a little to wider then the other. Overall this piece really explodes with color and leaves the viewer staring at it for long periods. a very incredible piece of work, keep this up! :la:

This is the second Dr. Pepper entry I've seen from the forum post, and it's so excellent! I think you definitely captured the fun and crazy flavors aspects of Dr. Pepper, it's such a vibrant piece!

I love how you made it Mardi Gras-themed, because I think it's people's tendency to associate more alcoholic beverages with that kind of party, but as a marketing device it would be great for Dr. Pepper to call themselves the world's greatest party drink :)

The composition is lovely and so are all the details! One thing, the girl's face behind the dancer is just a bit under-detailed compared to the others. Maybe her facial features could use a bit more shadowing and highlighting to bring out some more definition?

Great work! Good luck in the contest :D
