General tips for Scout: You are NOT a direct assault fighter like the Soldier. Come in from the enemy's blindside (if you can find a route where you can jump down from above, do it!) or wait for your team to attack from one direction and flank them from another. If the enemy sees you coming too early, retreat while pelting them with pellets. When you do get the drop on them, keep moving erratically, and try to take out priority targets (Medics and such)
I like this picture a lot. She looks very similar to the game's "50s advertisement" art style, and she's cute without being overly sexy. And the Whoopee Cap just looks adorable on her. Very nicely done, I could actually see this being used as a BLU team recruiting poster. "I WANT YOU TO JOIN BLU!"
Yes it is. It's called the 'Whoopee Cap.' It's a teamcolored paper crown.
Anyway, very nice work, Jo. To critique for a moment, without the shadows on the arms, it would have been very confusing on the upper torso. The same goes with her legs, to be honest. I mean, someone look at her legs and tell me if it's the left or right leg forward?
Now, the drawing itself, minus one or two confusing anatomical bits, is very nice. The scene conveys a lot of action, and, especially on the server I play on, this sort of scene happens daily, with varying success for the scout. Your shading gets a bit confusing, and at points it seems to defy logic, or just seem incomplete in places. (Her back leg and the shoulder of the arm carrying the intel, for example. As well as the total lack of shadow on her face. I'm trying to find a single main light source, and in all honesty, it's hard.)
Don't get me wrong, I love the piece, but I've seen you do so much better.
