My friend's character, I was asked to give it a more anime-ish style. :I

I drew this as a response to all of the Robin fanart showing up on the Oekaki. C:

Hey, some nice lines. I personally find the face to be a bit long, but it seems like that's your style. The only issue I have is your (over)use of the soft brushes. Using soft brushes just makes everything look muddled and no features stand out. Try working with brushes with sharp edges, I think it'll make your pieces stand out a whole lot more.

Thanks for the critique, man. I understand where you're coming from. C: More watercolor tool I guess~

Here's an art trade I did, and I'm kind of proud of it.

oh hi fiat... we met in the group board before so you must have remember me! if you don't i'll kill you! (just kidding! PEACE!)

first i would like to know who that arsenic poison? is he/she a spam? or is it just you?

second for the critique..
you misunderstood the way how the circle is used for the head.. (if your using a circle that is)



http://oi53.tinypic.com/rwnn6x.jpg

in tutorials you would always hear

first draw a cirlce then put a shape of face on the bottom of the circle
but that doesn't mean that you should use the exact size of the face of the drawing of the person of whoever the person teaching you.. =_= ofcourse it still depends on the person your drawing..
hatsune miku doesn't have that type of face shape

Oooo this looks awesome! You've clearly improved since your posts from ages ago, which is always awesome to see :)

Is there anything in particular you want to focus on? Just because that will make it easier for people to critique. For now I really like the shading in the top picture, shading isn't something i'm fond of normally but I think it works here. The deer does seem off balance, his center of balance is off so it kind of looks like he should be falling over. That's an easy fix though. I don't see anything else major that's standing out... I'm really excited to see what else you make because these are awesome! Love the style of the third one btw.

haha thanks!! uvu

i really kind of want to focus on like, anatomy and composition? i've been told i have a pretty good grasp of colour (i need to post some of my colour drawings) so i don't think i want to worry about that so

and i get what you mean about the deerdude and his center of balance, that was something i didn't even notice haha

edit: i redrew the chick with the suspenders - took me about 30 minutes?

Your portrait of that dude feels really expressive and your pencil technique really complements the atmosphere and I'd say that drawing is pretty admirable. Though, I'd like to point out that the left eyeglass that's in the back is taller than the one in the front, so it kind of throws off space for me in that moment.

For the deerdude, you got me in a lighter feeling atmosphere, so it seems like I would agree that you'd have some good ideas about composition. I only want to say that the head seems to be viewed at a different perspective starting from the shoulders going up, and below that your body has a different perspective so it doesn't attach properly and makes it feel like it's unbalanced. Try working with 1 or 2 vanishing points, it really helps put things together.

I'm not exactly sure what hetalia is, but the drawing looks like it's got nice qualities from the bold pencil strokes. Looks as if there's a nice subtle detail on his cheek, a tattoo. The only weird thing I see is that I can't find where his left elbow is, when you have a simple drawing, attention to shape is pretty critical.

Your last piece has nice textural qualities to it. There's not much I can say since I don't look through surreal art too often, but you can definitely use some ideas from here for more stuff.I'd not the textures, qualities the give it depth/take it away, and the contrast that defines your subject.

Chick with suspenders, not trying to be mean but I saw a guy at first. It was mostly due to the fact that the black fuzzy brush on the arms looked like hair to me. Some of my first thoughts is also that it looks like a nice graphic, but I also saw the thing with the shoulder from the deerguy. The size of the two hands are vastly different, the right shoulder is raised very high, so the right upper arm is a lot longer than the left. To me it's a matter of something in the back is smaller than something in the front.

oh WOW this is so rad thank you so much gosh

i can see what you mean about the shoulder thing, now that i look at it, it does seem pretty weird :o and yeah, i definitely need to work on perspective more haha

A general guideline I'd follow is that things up close are more detailed and contrasted (usually) and far away the opposite (usually), and that's my comment for both of them. Your mushroom things are creating some space through their scaling, maybe try making the farther back ones smaller to push that.

Are you referencing some real mushrooms? Maybe try finding pics of of mushrooms on trees and use that as some material to work with to add details and give your landscape a lot more character. I'd push the values a bit more in the front too, but that's probably dependent on the atmosphere you're looking to work with.

Hi SassyTurtles,

It's great to see another person putting effort into doing landscapes and scenery. My first suggestion would be to work on defining the fore-, mid-, and background areas in your landscapes. This is usually done by a combination of things. Obviously size and perspective is huge, but I would also try pushing things further into the distance but de-saturating the colors of objects the further they appear.

General composition rules apply for landscapes just as they do for portraits or action scenes. It's good to pick a subject for the painting and make that the focal point, whether that subject is a mountain or a huge mushroom. Once you decide upon the subject, make it a visually dominant part of the painting. In both your landscapes, it doesn't seem as if you've decided upon a subject for the painting, opting instead to just paint everything. Also, choosing a subject allows you to focus your time on that object, making it more detailed than its surroundings will automatically bring your eyes to it, just like how the one mushroom that has details draws my eyes compared to the rest. If you'd like this mushroom to be the focal point, maybe try to make it more visually dominating.

Your mushroom piece would be much more interesting if you brought in some complementing colors for the shadows. Right now it's all warm colors. Adding in some blues or purples would make things really pop out. If you want to continue with the color scheme you have now, then increasing the contrast is going to be really important. At any rate, keep up the good work. I look forward to seeing how they progress. :)
