Dat anatomy, bro. Work on it. Also, your light sources are all over the place.
yeah ive been trying to improve my anatomy recently (you should have seen how I drew muscles only two weeks ago lol), and highlights are something new im trying too. I mainly was just having fun with this piece and trying new things, anyway thanks for the review!
The only major qualms I have are her visible hand, which should really be in a different pose, and the lack of a detailed background. Other than those two things, this is a really good piece.
Your trying is paying off! However, I do find some things that are off. For one, the head is too big, and for two, the legs are too short. Lengthen the thighs and shrink the head. Also, the hands look like they're in awkward positions. Her right hand seems to be floating off of her hip, which believe me from the way I see it would be very painful, or slightly uncomfortable to keep it there. The other hand needs to have more fingers on her thigh. To me, it looks like she's groping the wrong area. The clothes are uneven as well.
However, I do see you trying to make an effort to get away from anime. Kudos to that, since I can relate. I too, am trying to get away from my anime roots, and am trying something a bit more western. So, I will certainly give props for that. Trust me, you will be drawing plenty of awkward poses, after what anime-only art does to you. I mean, I like the style and all, but to a beginning artist, it is crippling. I should know, I drew anime until I decided to get off my ass and actually start studying for once.
Trust me on this, this is not a bad start. In fact, I should probably expect a lot of this. That does not mean you will not improve at all, in fact, failure will eventually lead to success the more you keep trying to solve the problem. Keep at it, and I am certain withing a few months, or possibly a year, you'll be significantly better at drawing poses and things of that nature. Just keep working and working and never give up! Godspeed, my good sir.
Thank you for the critique. This is a rather old piece and I'm still trying to break out of it. If I'm drawing from life, like have an actual person or object in front of me, realism comes easily, but I often revert back into anime when I'm just messing around. I want to get more of a comic book style, but I feel like I need to break my anime habit and get back into realism before I try that.
Apparently yours and my ideas or "really good" are completely different things.
Another amazing, senseless piece that combines light, vivid colors with the wackiest concepts yet seen. MLP mixed with Panty and Stocking? Considering the latter's lack of morals, I half-expected them to be more scantily-clad, give the nature of Panty and Stocking, but I digress. To be sure, this is a very fun, creative mix of concepts that combines the bizarre with the somewhat-ordinary. The sense I get from the insanity of Panty and Stocking is emulated fairly well, but doesn't stoop so low as to emulate the art style. I certainly appreciate you deciding to go with your own art style, which is good, by the way.
This is surely another piece that's going into my favorites.
Where in the hell are you getting your concepts? You'd better start giving me some of them creative juices there, boi!
No, but seriously, as much as I hate generic FPS games, I can't help but laugh when playing Left 4 Dead. Mashing these two things (MLP and L4D) makes no sense whatsoever, but who cares? It's all in good creative fun, and I can certainly appreciate what appears to be your fine sense of humor. It doesn't hurt that the art style is just as amusing, and oh God...Their expressions are damn good. It's an expressive piece that is definitely going in my favorites.
Don't listen to the asshole below me, this piece is freakin' adorable!
The concept of the piece is lovely, but unlike Fifty-50, I do not find the actual execution of certain aspects of the piece to be satisfactory. There are obvious flaws such as the anatomy of the characters being way off the mark. The characters' faces look awkward, the hands are amateur at best, and there are more that should be pointed out. However, the coloring and shading is wonderful. However, the anatomy would typically deduct a whole four stars from your score for me. It's just bad. However, you did an amazing coloring job, and I love how much effort you put into the piece. That will earn you a 1/2 stars and the final 1 and 1/2 stars go to your coloring job. I would really like to love this piece, it's just that...I can't put it lightly, it's just that the characters look way off.
There are lots of things you can do. For one, there are plenty of sites that offer pictures of models, and if you're having trouble drawing poses, by all means please, do not go through the pain of getting the pose wrong; go out there and reference!
Finally, just practice. You can never go wrong with ANY amount of studying whatsoever if it will only help you improve your craft. Step outside of your comfort zone. Explore the possibilities. Do it. I am just starting to take joy into going out of my comfort zone by doing more bizarre things, and by drawing more things outside of my range. My style has slowly shifted from the typical generic anime style to something which I have yet to identify all because I took the time to step out of my comfort zone, even if only a little. I, and many other artists like me, am living proof that one can improve by practice.
TL;DR: Keep calm and draw.
Well, first off I ohnestly appreciate you giving me constructive criticism. Not a lot of people do that but I'm not the type of person that really gets upset by it. It just means I have things to work on and I appreciate people giving me pointers. C:
Yes, I aggree my anatomy is really not the best although I try. Lately I haven't got so much time to draw just for myself (that means mostly for school), but I am trying to improve at least little by little. Well I do look up references and such but I don't always draw while looking at them. Sometimes I do but sometimes I just look them up for learning purposes - like examining the pose and try to understand why it's like it is.
Although, I aggree I need so much more practice and I'm not giving as much time for it as I could or should but I realized recently that I don't need to force myself, I'll take my own pace and I'll get there eventually. I'm not going to give up on it even if it takes a longer time. ^^
So, thank you! I'll take everything into consideration and I'll try my best to improve! :3
I think it looks cool, even if it is a tad simplistic. I'd give you full credit, but it looks like you just copied the layer, reversed it then put it together.
I didn't if you were an actual artist you would have known that.
A change of name doesn't make you any less of an idiot Hiryugouki, Dragonpunch, or whatever the fuck your name is now...
WTF, guys? This is petty good! Seriously, what the hell is wrong with these people? They probably expected it to be realistic and stuff. However, I must admit that I was expecting it to be realistic too. However, caricatures are awesome too, folks! However, this is no ordinary caricature. This piece uses realistic painting techniques to, while bringing a "sense" of realism, the shape of the man himself is what makes this caricature a parody of Mitt himself. It looks stupid for a reason, guys! I mean, what did you expect with a title like "Shitt Romney"? Good piece, though, dude. I personally have no complaints. 5/5
Aw well shucks, thank you so much for that man! I'm glad you said all that. I think still I should've gone all then way with the caricaturising but hell, at least someone read Shitt Romney haha. Thanks again. xxx
