View Full Version : Critique Bambi (occasional nudity?)

08-30-2011, 06:33 PM
So I am aware there are many pictures here, all of bad quality (used the camera on my computer instead of a scanner. hah.), but critiques would still be welcome and very much appreciated. Fact: the only thing I know how to do is sketch. Sorry if some pictures are difficult to see... Also, I numbered them for less confusion.

A few facts about the way I draw. I don't really have much experience with digital art. Also, I don't like to color. I use mainly pencil, but occasionally I feel adventurous and sketch with a ball-point pen. I know, I'm a rebel. As you can probably tell, my favorite subject to draw is faces, but I am trying to branch out a little (there are some full poses towards the bottom). Coolcoolcool. Here we go.

Goods. The fifth is the one with most "mistakes", when you play with that perspective and that pose, the hip should be hided in a part (because for the hand to be able to touch the feet, the body must bend a little and also the shoulders must move). Also the hand and the feet doesn't work with the perspective.

The eight has a part of the head missed and the head of the ninth is to big for the body (actually the hair has a part that makes you think the head could be bigger).

But are cool.

I am a girl who wears earrings. :cat_rosy:

Hmmm, I am sort of new to playing with perspective and different sorts of poses.... so I have a few questions actually. On the fifth picture, do the hands and feet not work because they are uniformly the same size.? And I am having trouble understanding what would fix the pose.

Also, more than the fifth picture I had a really difficult time with sixth picture. I used posemaniacs as a reference, but the whole time I was drawing it just looked wrong. It looks a little bit better now, but the back just looks weird to me. Also the neck area and shoulders. :/

The fifth is not working because the hip and shoulders are in a unreal posture. Try to grab your fit mimicking the pose and you will see your hips and shoulders are not going to stay in the same line. Changing those are going to change the view of both arm and legs and you will be able to correct the perspective problem easily.

The sixth picture has a to long body, its not a big issue, but it can bug some people. Try to be more dramatic in how the perspective affect the body.

Also, I knew you were a girl because mens don't draw girls with earrings and when we try to do it, it end very cartoonish.

Hmmm, that's interesting. It never occured to me that men might not be able to draw earrings? :cat_huh: Weird. But anyways, thanks for your input. I will work on perspective more...

Also, here's a pretty quick sketch. Not much shading. Practicing different poses. This one's a ballerina!

Wow, the anatomy is pretty goodd. I don't know what you could improve on it with.

I dig your style x)
those eyes are so sweet.!

I disagree with Clockhand. I can very comfortably grab my foot without bending in any way. Actually, most people should be able to...

I really like your style on all of these. Gives em personality, I could actually overlook the technical flaws just because of that. BUT I'll dig into em anyways just do give you something other than my little words lol. But I'll be brief.

The last one you posted of the dancer seems pretty well drawn out. But there is one main thing I noticed, that that's the way the foot is pointing. Actually, the lower part of the leg seems to be rotated in some kind of weird angle, like her leg is broke. Did you use reference by any chance?

The one above her, the face, is just my all out favorite. Whatever expression that is, it's just awesome, and it really puts some character...with the character..er, the face....>_> So I don't really see anything wrong, seems like more of a stylistic approach that worked out alright. If you were going for realism, ya got some problems capt.

The blue face=equally great, with subtly lighting that works well with the color picked. I don't really see anything wrong, although I'd love if you touched it up.

There are a bunch of others I'd comment on if I wasn't lazy. But overall, you're really good. I'd like to see a couple of finished, finished pieces if you ever decide to do that

I love the wavy hair of the lady but I don't like all of your drawings, I mostly like the ladies you draw. Some of them are FRIGGIN AMAZING though!

I have resurrected this ancient thread with new material. I started learning how to color with Photoshop.. I use version CS3 which I realize is a million years old but whatev. I definitely am not an expert though, so digital painting tips are appreciated.

Also, I realize I need to work on backgrounds... sigh. I find them tedious. Aaaand you might think I am obsessed with buns based on this sampling of pictures, but it's mostly because I use pics of myself as reference, and I wear buns a lot. That is all. Thanks for taking the time to browse. x:
