    Nara's Art - Learning Moe Characters

    I'm sure everyone knows what 'moe' is. (Try to google 'moe' if you don't know what it is, rather than asking me or anyone else here!)
    So, basically i like drawing 'moe' characters and of course want to improve my drawing skills using this style.

    I was in manga school before (i quit after i reached mid-level), so maybe some of my works would look good or at least acceptable.
    BUT! I didn't make this thread to show-off, because there are so many things that i haven't learned yet.

    I know my own limit & i know i still have so much to learn.
    In fact, your comments & critiques are greatly appreciated.

    Here's some of my works i drew before i joined MT:
    SPOILER! :





    These 2 works was made a few minutes before i made this post:

    Thanks for the support, everyone!

    Though i don't know how long it will takes until i finally can draw at least like in the 2nd old picture (girl holding a guitar).

    Maybe i will try to re-draw some of my old pictures & post it here later.

    Wow you're really good and if this is rusty for you then I can't wait to see what you do when you're back on track. You have a really cute style with very clean lines so cute

    Redrawing old works is a great way to improve or build back up. I use it all the time when I reuse concept art over time. I've currently been working on one particular monster for 3 months, redrawing it occasionally or when I get a fresh idea on it.

    I know i posted that i would re-draw some of my old works today, but in the end i drew something new instead.

    Here's what i doodled right after my last post:
    SPOILER! :

    Then i decided to draw something based on that doodle:
    SPOILER! :

    ...yeah, i know that guy in the middle is ruining the picture.
    I forgot how to draw male anatomy, maybe i need to re-read my tutorial book later.

    Then, i decided to draw 2 facial expressions & a hand detail.
    SPOILER! :

    I have this feeling like it's not good enough just yet, you know like something is still missing...
    Anyway, i'll always appreciate all critiques & comments from everyone.

    I've gotta say you've got some kick-ass shiny crisp lines One major flaw i saw was in one of your old works, the girl with a guitar has.....quite a strange hand. And in the newer ones, everything is pretty ok. The last one has a tad bit too long neck, and i think her thumb is too far away from the rest of the fingers. ANd about the male anatomy, it isn't that hard, but i sense that you like doing girls more then boys........owo
    Problem?
