So, a few good things and not-so-good things. First, I like the lighting. The flames could be brighter, but the lighting and shade on Mirage herself looks pretty nice! I also like her expression, it definitely comes off as if she's up to no good. Her hair and hands are pretty nice, but I think the part of her arms that goes from the shoulder to the elbow, those are too short. Also, the shadow under her feet is a bit odd, she kind of looks like she's floating. I like the background though, simple yet effective. And, nice colours too. Overall, I like it ^^
Ok I'll keep that in mind next time. Thanks.
Not bad for your first try! I can tell you are paying attention to proportions, but some parts are still off. Her thighs are /way/ too long for one. For another, if you're going by manga proportions, usually the characters have large heads, and hers is a bit small. But everything else checks out, elbows, hands, and breasts all in the generally correct places! Though if you shortened her thighs, you might have to make the arms shorter as well to match up.
Proportions aside, that's a pretty unnatural standing position, with the arms and legs slightly apart. But I understand if you want to focus on getting technicalities down, like proportions and such, before worrying about the nuance of posing. The line quality is a bit lacking as well. It's not too bad, but it's a bit wobbly at some places. Your ability to correct this really depends on the program you use, but most art programs have vectors or line stabilizing options you can use to make smooth lines
And for something positive, I like that you drew hands, they're not bad! Most beginners hide their character's hands because they're afraid they'll look bad, but you can't learn that way. Good on you for taking on the challenge of drawing them! Also, the colours work with each other for the most part. I like the colours around the waist and above, but I think the pants are so dark, they're a little hard to distinguish from the black boots. But that's a minor gripe really. Keep up the good work, this is a great start, I think!
Thank you for the feedback. I am using Photoshop for the drawing, and am new to that as well. There is a lot to learn, but I want to learn it all.
I like the colours and pose! However, the way her legs connect to her body doesn't... seem right. It's /really/ wide. For her shins and feet to go out like that, her thighs would have to be pressed against each other and wouldn't take up so much space.
I also like the grass, but its soft fuzziness doesn't really match the character's crisp outlined appearance. But the background viewed on its own is very pretty and soft. And again, I like the character too, her design is simple but appealing ^^ Her hair is unusual, without coming off as ridiculous
It looks a little uncanny to me. Like, the style doesn't seem to match up. There's solid lines for parts of his face, but also much more realistic detailed shading on his shirt and hair, and even the detail of individual hair strands.
I still like this overall though, and I can tell who it is! The detailed parts are /really/ good, love that shirt and hair!
Many thanks! and yeah, I'm learning how to fine-tune those features to be less jarring(faces have never been my strength), but I'm glad his face is distinguishable.
Wow, this is so clean and the colours are fantastic! It's cliched to say, but it really does look like it could pop off the page.
My only gripe is not with the drawing, but how much of the table and sketchbook is showing. I know the background being black and white helps the colour stand out more, but I think there's still too much of it showing. But, that's no reason to bring down the rating over my personal nitpick when the art itself is fantastic!
That's a fair point, there's a lot of useless space on the right I'm now realizing. I don't typically post things like this, so it slipped my mind.
Really glad you like it though, thank you for the kind words!
Weird plants, giant owls, glowing eyes and a spy. Idk what's going on but man does it look pretty awesome so far!
Really nice perspective too ^^
Thank you very much! I will posting the animatic for the this storyboard later today! :D
Ah, Yan-Chan! Nice job, I like her friendly expression while she holds a weapon, makes me wonder what she plans to do. I don't typically like pixel-art that much but this looks pretty good!
Thank you. She may be happy because she's going to eliminate her first rival ^.^ . And also I wanted to thank you because you're the first one who commented and rated it. Have a nice day.
This is pretty neat to see it as just colour blocks, thank you!
Ooh, I like this! The lighting and shading is very mysterious, I like the slight glow she has. The dress folds are great and her pose and expression are intriguing ^^
That's mean a lot for me :)
It's a bit weird how Joe looks much more finished (fully shaded and such) than everything else in this... but five stars anyway because this made me actually lol xD
