Critique?
« on: November 15, 2008, 05:19:06 am »
Nothing too harsh, please, I'm a crybaby xD



I apologize for the large image size.
This is one of my characters, Brigadier Zaefyr, or Amaia if you're lucky. She usually wears an oversized jacket as well but in this picture I thought I'd get down to the bare bones of her.
I already know I messed up a bit on the face, and the lines could be thinner. Anything other than that? I'm rather proud of the anatomy, but if you see anything awkward ...
Thanks in advance!

Hmm.  There's something funny about her left arm.  I can see the elbow and wrist and forearm, but something still strikes me weird; I can't pinpoint it, though.  As for the rest of the picture, VERY NICE!!!!!  *complimentary mini-howl*

By the way, what medium are you using?

Indeed! I do agree that it is a nice picture!

My one crit will be that when the hair starts at the forehead, It seems odd... Perhaps just shading it a bit darker near the front could make it look better? But then agian, my art sucks, so I don't have much merit. :)

Hm, now that you mention it, there is something a little funny about her arm. Maybe it's the angle of her hand?
I use Jasc Paint Shop Pro 9. A bit outdated, but I love it just the same. For this piece I mostly used MS Paint, though.

I'll try making her hair a bit darker, see if that makes a difference.
