YAY! I finally got a scanner! ^_^ Happy-happy-joy-joy and the like.
The first image I'll post is one I drew about a year ago. I's a rarity in that it's one of the few pictures I've ever drawn that I haven't started hating the week after I drew it. Unfortunately, I've gotten a lot worse since then, I think...My art really has been sucking ever since I've started attempting backgrounds.
Some of the hair didn't make it past the scanning process...oh well. Feedback, please! ^_^
Yes, yes! Excellent picture! I love your hands! There's just one problem: the head isn't proportionate. If you either made the head a bit smaller or if you made the shoulders a little longer, then it would be perfect! Also, shading works too! Are you just starting out? Because your work is good and detailed!
Very good attempts but I shall critique them so you have a springboard from which you can become better.
The first image:
You need to look sinto the shoulders, make them slightly broader (/wider). Look at a real anatomy image. Usually, the way I measure the sholders and upper torso to be correct is to place some of the bones in place like the collarbone especially.
I found this image: http://www.newagelondontraining.com/...lar%20Bone.jpg ( I hope the lassie in it will not be offended for using the image >.> ) I used it because her collar bones are clear.
Also, loosen up with the pencila little =) use fainter grades of pencil (H, 2H etc) to plan out the image then go through it again with a bolder pencil (HB, B) and allow your hand to make longer strokes. You'll find it instantly raises the image up a notch ^__^ (especially helpful with hair and fabric)
The second image looks beautiful. However.. everything has shadows except .. the great deku tree =p or at least the tree. It's shaded in beautifully but it hasn't got a shadow :<
Well done for starting to take on backgrounds though, they take courage and a lot of skill >.>
One thing for backgrounds, make sure you plan out everything in pers[ective lightly as you're mapping out the image. That'll allow the picture to hold together as one holistic image.
Heh, whoops. ^_^; Forgot the tree shadow. Thanks for pointing that out for me, Anime_Queen! I'll have to get those pencils eventually. Need to get a new eraser, too, while I'm at it. Anyways... http://i11.photobucket.com/albums/a1...o/Cowgirly.jpg
Eh, not as good as I wanted it to be. Not liking the hair or the lines too much.
I was in a very cowboy-esque mood. It was Western Day at school, so cowboy hats were EVERYWHERE. O_o;
These are awesome Evil Tomato! I didn't know you drew! I have just a few comments about your latest one though, the hands look a bit too large and the mouth should be just a little more to the left. Then again... this is way better than pretty much anything I've ever drawn! Great work!
Anywho, thought I'd post some tomato doodles I did. ^_^ Some of it got cut off, and a lot of them are rather sloppy and whatnot, but hopefully you'll like them anyway. I'm working on turning one of them into a sig. Tee-hee.
Heh, thank you. ^_^
I love drawing evil chibi tomatoes with over-the-top expressions. I sketch them whenever I'm bored.
I'll have to scan some of my neater, more recent ones in eventually.
I actually have several I'd like to scan in, but they're either still being finished up or they're lost within the giant folder I keep drawings and sketches in.
Anywho, this is one I did over the summer. It's one of the few shaded drawings I've done, and it was made during a short-lived obsession with drawing knight-themed stuff.
I cleaned it up a bit in paint. Messy, messy edges. -_-;
Heh, I started this one AGES ago in my sketchbook. I didn't like the hair much, and the arms were so skinny she looked anorexic, so very recently I erased a lot of it and redrew it. Don't really have the time or patience to clean it up in paint at the moment.
This one I drew at school. I had a sort of scottish theme in mind. I'll color it in soon, hopefully. I downloaded a trial version of Painter, but I'm having trouble opening it.
