@Lady_Lunevis: Thanks, been drawing since high school but stopped for 2 years and begun drawing again in my 3rd year in university. I'm actually still unsatisfied with my drawings so I still want to beyond what I have now.

 

Done, I removed the background since it took too long to even make the character:

Very interesting,good luck with your work!

Thanks, it takes an iron will to continue after many failures. I've met many projects that failed before like indie groups for game making with me hired as an artist. Hope my friend does not get tired of his story and give up though.

 

Work in Progress for a commission:

I really appreciate your lines and line weights, namely how they taper out beautifully in all the right spots. Personally, it's something I've been having a lot of trouble with. Is there a way to go about it (e.g. 2pt brush, a steady hand, and a lot of patience), or is the line (and line weight) creation and placement just a factor of experience?

You gotta experiment, I myself am still looking for the right formula for that 'ideal' style. But at the same time I am getting better at other things.

'course, you can argue that the 'ideal' style doesn't really exist. Just 'different' styles, some with better reception than others. Though, there is definitely a technique when it comes to manipulating pen pressure for it to do what you want, if that's what you mean. ;p

 

Are you accepting critique on your shading? I have a few points to share but I'll let them be if I'm not welcome to do so.

Go right ahead, although my artist friends already bombarded me with what I can already it's interesting how others see it as.

Whoever asked for the pouncing pillow, I made one now while working in progress with mermaid.

I've found that the shading for most of the clothes you've done have a glossy sheen to them -- the bright highlights and the soft shadows imply that they are made of shiny rubber. I'm not sure if it's intentional, and it took me a while to formulate a reply presciently because I wasn't sure (most of your examples of female clothing here cling tightly to the body anyway). Nevertheless, material studies (drawing spheres of different stuffs) are intensely useful for learning to paint, I find. I like to compare, contrast, and paint the textures showcased on rendering sites like Maxwell Render from time to time as exercises. Your hair, though, looks cel-shaded (but frankly it looks awesome), but the style clashes with the soft shading of the clothing and the rest of the body. You can go the other direction in your style by making it all consistent (either all cel-shaded, or all soft-painted).

 

This part is more of a personal style opinion rather than a critique: be more liberal with your shadows, be more sparse with your highlights, and keep in mind your light source. Play with more interesting light directions. I take it that you've taken figure drawing of some sort before -- use shading as a tool to define form, rather than letting the lines dictate where the shading would be. (I guess I was just expecting muscle definition on yugioh guy's arm when writing that last point. xd.png)

 

I wouldn't be surprised if what I've said has probably been said before by your artist friends already. tongue.gif

That's quite an interesting view you have about the style I have right now. But yes, everything was intentional with making a shiny spandex-like fabric and shiny metallic parts and the hair. My pursuit of 'ideal' style is between the styles you mentioned or it might be another style by itself.

 

My real style is actually less anime style than the ones I posted thus the cartoon celshade. wink.gif
