If vanity be thy name, then pain be thy gain!
... This is just a shading practice... though I couldn't get the background right, so I drew up this.
Anyone willing to give me a new background, I'd greatly appreciate it...
I was also heavily inspired by Shadman with this style of shading... I love his work, I just need more practice...



Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

I see what you were going for in this painting. And I like it. However, there are a couple of things I want to point out.
If this character is female, the shoulders are a bit too bulky, it makes her look a bit masculine.
And about the shading, I think you should make the dark and light tones contrast a bit more, make the dark bits darker and the light bits lighter, I think the shade placement is great but the shading looks a little bland.

Do keep it up, mate, I think with enough practice you're going to do some unbelievably good stuff!

Your review is much appreciated... I was actually using this as shading practice, and I often get told on my work that I should make the lines more apparent, though I have not yet mastered that without making them TOO apparent... Also, this background was just a quickie, on a count that I am horrid at imaginary landscapes...
Thanks for the review... Actual reason I posted this here was to gain opinions on my work so I could iron out the flaws...
One last thing as well... I was trying to make the muscles seem more exaggerated so I could try out my shading "skills" if you can call them that...
Enjoy your day/night. And thank you for such an expanded review as to what I usually expect, I appreciate it...
