@Rubisko: Your comment was immensely helpful! I rethought about the character's concept and made it simpler. I hope he looks more stylish though since he's my main antagonist. Villains are supposed to be badass.
@Demonfyre: believe or not, your works inspired me to finish the lineart! Thanks for pointing all those out. Now I hope the pose is less awkward.
@Shadowfade: Thank you! Yes, i have to practice some more on color. I have recently scanned through coloring tutorials just like you said and I do think i need to study shading some more. I have yet to upload a colored version of this following post and hopefully color better.
@Matt: Thank you! Yes I need to draw some more girls. I will draw them later when i finish developing my more mainstream characters... Thank you for the link you gave. I saved some more photos from the gallery it was in. I have devised a strategy to copy its coloring technique and hope to apply it soon. For now, I have tweaked the my lineart style just as you suggested. I hope it's better
@Reganator: Thank you sir for that! I love it that someone has noticed the differences among my characters' looks. I do take time to research on faces and their personalities before drawing anything. I find the process enjoyable too, however it does take a lot of time so my process may be slow for other people. As for Eira, I have unfortunately deleted her psd already. I will redraw her when i have time. Thank you for pointing those out. I'll be incorporating them in my future artworks. It's good to have some mentors here in MT who are experts on comic/manga illustration. I really appreciate it especially the references.
@Clockhand: Thank you sir! I'll be sure to show more expressive characters next. Just like what you and matt said, I also re thought of my lineart and coloring method. I am now researching on techniques to make it work but for now a lineart is all i could show you! please critique when you can again. I appreciate all the help you're offering Your expert advice is incredibly helpful and thought provoking.
A lineart is all I could show for now.
King Qayin with his pet eagle, Pew. I put it on an angle because i think it tells more about King Qayins personality
