Artist Comment

this drawing is one I done while looking at a drawing tutorial on bakaneko.. it may resemble one of the step by step tutorial there~
but I changed it at some parts quite a bit(due to critiques of friends) and added some shading..
I don't know if the shading is good but still trying to improve~

[EDIT] I made some changes to the leg and slightly to the thumb.. made the ends of the hair sharper and some others =p hope its better now~

Do comment on it if you want ^^ Thanks~~

    Zomg.. I think I remember seeing this pose and clothes combo in a tut before. XD <lol> But it wasn't bakaneko's, hehe~

    Well! :) What to say? This is pretty good for following a tut. ^_^' I always find tuts hard to follow. Hm.. well. A bit of crit? The length of a person's foot is generally the length of their forearm. XD So your figure's right foot is a bit short.

    The shading's about right. :) Just try not to stick to the outlines so much (vary the thickness of shadow next to outlines more.. if that makes sense ^_^'). It'll help make the figure look less 2D.

    For the hair, sharpen your pencil and try to taper the ends of the bangs and things a bit more. XD Because hair is fine (and not clumpy), the ends of the lines should be sharp.

    Can't think of anything more to say at the moment. :) Ganbatte, ne? *high fives mw* XD

    wow, MadWiz, this is your best drawing yet! The shading is so nice, you learned it already? Great! About the chara... the pose is good and the other things too, but maybe his foot is a bit short, like bucket-shot said... But you can correct it easily :) The face is cute again, I like how you draw faces ^_^ hehe... I'm still waiting, maybe one day there will be a colored one too...if you don't try it, you don't know the result ;) But this one turned out pretty good! I hope to see other great drawings from you soon :D

    The drawing is pretty nice, the body is balance, and I believe you could do more with the shading. [edit]I see you made the change on the thumb, very nice[/edit] I see you got the legs down this time, they are very nice. your best work as of yet Mad. :)

    *crys to death with happeeness*
    Body's great, but maybe you could try faster strokes on the hair, looks more natrual. ^-^

  9. chibi-lizard Feb 23, 2005

    ~hee~ mad-kun has improved a lot !
    the shading ish better..
    i think the body isn't a lil balance. the neck looks thin, arm ish ok.. but the legs look fatter ?..
    and the foot looks a lil small to fit her size.
    anyway.. keep it up.. you're improving ! :D
