Really good stuff here (puts my work to shame lol).
I like the shading and how the characters look life like in their motion.
Thank you kindly! :D
not bad lad your power levels are rising
Hue Hugh hyu
Good. Thank you.
You are definitely getting better.
The anatomy is improving and you did a decent job with the hands and face.
The abs are a little off, but not bad.
I do like the reflection but it's a perfect reflection which implies that the water isn't moving.
Seeing that there are lines of movement in the water, the reflection would be slightly distorted. The water would also flow around anything that is obstructing it's path.
Overall you did a pretty good job, keep working at it man!
I can see what you were going for in terms of effect.
I would say 4/5 for the idea, it kind of reminds me of a movie cover.
But for the drawing as a whole, 3.5/5
To improve things composition wise, maybe you can add a few more trees or even change the perspective a little.
As for the drawing over all, it's a bit off with the anatomy.
It appears that you were drawing the character in a pose as if she was running forward.
Doing drawings with foreshortening can be difficult, so it was a decent effort anyway.
What I recommend is basically what was stated below, just get into some more life drawing.
Don't worry about all the detail in the beginning, just get the form down first, and then work the details in.
Keep working at it, you've made progress since your first drawing and you can continue to get better.
Thanks Man. I appreciate your constructive criticism and will do my best to improve my skills based on the feedback you gave me.
I notice you are drawing a lot of the characters in the same general pose, looking forward at the viewer.
Not that it's bad, it's just that it feels repetitive. Maybe you can try to draw the character from a different angle or pose.
I do like that you are doing original characters though, It's nice to see an attempt at something new.
Keep it up!
Yup.....Well, Most of the Earlier ones are Pretty Simple, but Recently I've been going for Other Angles/Positions/Etc. I Think I'll Start Drawing Less Original Characters soon, as I Find there are Only so Many Traits in a Character's Appearance. I Find that I'm Better at Drawing from a Picture I can See Anyhow. If You'd Like a Sketch, just Send Me a Message and I'll Try to get it Done. Your Feedback is Appreciated. :)
I assume that you are just getting into digital art.
Just so you know everybody is not so good when first start out.
For this drawing, the line work is a little messy and the lighting does not make sense.
The posts on opposite sides have light coming from opposite direction and do not add up with the lighting on the character's face. Also, it appears that light is on top of the character's head.
I can see what you were going for but it came out a bit skewed.
If your were planning on having 4 light sources (from all directions) there wouldn't really be much shadow on the character, just on a few points.
Try to focus on one or two light sources, it will make it much easier.
Aside from that, the face and hair is drawn out pretty good.
Keep at it, you will get better.
Not bad, simple, but has a nice feel.
Thanks :) I'm still learning the ins and outs of digital painting, or computer art, or whatever you want to call it. I intend to make dumb little animations, to make people laugh, one day. hopefully*
Strolling through the Newgrounds as I complete a major project, and I stumbled on this image here.
Let me begin by saying how glad I am that this isn't a furry image of the sonic characters. There is a bit too much of that and it only hurts the image of the characters.
Anyway, I see what you were going for, but it's a little off. The pose in general is not too bad, but it is the crossed leg that bothers me. It looks like Shadow has 3 segments to his leg. Given that particular angle, I can see how it would have been difficult to draw.
Assuming that you just drew the lines and then colored them in, I recommend that you don't do that.
First draw out some roughs of the pose you are going for. Also, instead of drawing everything in a fluid line, break the body up into shapes, and make sure to layer them too.
For this particular image, when it came to the leg, I would first draw a rough shape of the thigh and then the calf ontop. This way you get a better sense of the foreshortening that is happening and you will be able to get a better image.
Once you have your rough lines and shapes drawn, make a new layer and lower the opacity of the rough lines.
Using your rough lines as a guide, draw in the clean lines.
There is a second major issue I see with this image. The chair's perspective is a little wonky.
The arm rests look like they are flat and have no volume.
I suggest you look at some examples of things drawn in perspective. You will get a better understanding of how everything works.
I know that this may be a little stressful to learn, but hang in there. Keep practicing and you will get better.
Wow!! Thank you muchly for your feedback and advice!! Reading your comment, I completely understand where you are coming from about my perspective and pose. The only problem is, it may not look like it, but I actually DID do a rough sketch plus a stick figure drawing to make sure it was equal to my sketch, I even used layers. Also, I did use shapes to draw the body. The thing is, it was my first time drawing someone sitting in a chair. I made one of Sonic too. It was also my first time drawing someone's legs crossed, and I had trouble with it. It was the best I could do at the time, but hopefully with practicing drawing more stick figure poses, that will help me in drawing poses better.
