Annabelle, this is so... well... umm... awwwww...
... awesome beyond words!
. You made my day... no, week... wait - month! I spent all of the morning just staring at the picture giggling. It catches the vibe of the whole thing so accurately. It's simply hard to believe how masterfully you interpreted the sprites and transposed them into a full drawing. Very evocative. Likes, likes, likes!
. This is not really a fan art, more like a commercial grade package artwork.
I love the toxic atmosphere, the cuteness of the dogs, the contrast between doctors and the characters and the sense for details, like how she's cheerful and he's a little bit fed up and tired of all that dog business but puppies still adore him... A lot of talent you've got there
During the development I have actually had some ideas about doing something like a "box art" myself but at the end I gave up because it seemed too small a game to be worth the effort. Believe it or not I envisioned the composition exactly like it is in your artwork; Two of them standing at the bottom holding puppies, enemies stacked above in a threatening fashion and the landscape, taken directly from the game, in the background.
This is like somebody had read my thoughts and turned them into reality
I'd like to use it as a splash screen (until we print the boxes
), if I may.
Now excuse me everyone, I'm going to go and spend the rest of the day looking at the picture.
