This is my first time making an accent and I was wondering if I could get a little bit of criticism on this one (which honestly I designed with the Trickmurk Circus in mind but considering the way things are picked, it would probably never get a chance no matter how much I improved it).
Anyway……. yeah. Criticism please? The pattern is dominoes, in case it was hard to tell. It feels like it’s a little flat, but…. if I shade the dominoes themselves it might look weird or too busy…… thanks in advance!
(and I hope this blog is an okay way to ask for help with this!)

The accent is certainly interesting! The pattern does look a little flat, however — particularly in conjunction with the natural lineart of the tundra itself, which doesn’t wholly lend itself well to patterns. The curve of the tundra’s tummy in particular creates an illusion of flat pattern that is difficult to work around at times.
The dominoes are a little difficult to read as it currently is. At first blush, it looks a bit more like dice than dominoes — it’s difficult to tell which squares go with each other, and how the number dots fit together. Perhaps the dominoes could go in alternating black/white, to help them be distinguished from one another?
Have you tried shading the dominoes and making them a bit more 3D? It might not turn out as busy as you fear! The dominoes could probably do with a little touch-up to make them pop. Maybe a touch of lacquer finish effect to make them look almost like real dominoes?
We hope this feedback is helpful, and wish you the best of luck with your accent endeavours! More tundra accents are always good.
