Did this as a commission for a friend. The background was definitely challenging, but I like the final results. Tried messing around with lighting too.

Done in Sai PaintTool and Photshop

dose it really matter about the book shelf's. What really jumps out to me is the emotion of this great drawing

I think it's great and disagree with the other critiques. I, for one, imagine the bookcases going upstairs and the doorway being at a comfortable distance.

TheDamnThinGuy responds:

Thank you so much! I appreciate you compliment.

This is great! Love anime? Seems like it. I think this is definitely one of those things where one can say it is anime inspired.

TheDamnThinGuy responds:

Haha, I guess you could say that. Thank you!

Your method of drawing is very organic. it's great to see you go further than defining shapes, and filling space in interesting ways; defined hairs, creases in clothes, etc. You make good use of both solid and soft brushes so it doesn't feel too cut-out, or too hazy. You have a very good grasp of the software and you should be very very pleased with the stage you are at : ) With these skills in your possession, you should also focus on boosting your understanding of light, colour, and form up to meet the same level as your aesthetic know-how. Before you start the image, take a few extra moments to consider the perspective (I have trouble with this as I usually just draw characters and do a scenery afterwards, which isn't great) and how the characters are constructed. Most people want to skip this part, but drawing from life is the best 100% guaranteed way to improve, but it doesn't have to be a separate 'lesson' from how you usually draw. You could ask a friend to pose for a character that you need in that position, then just sketch away, scan in, and then you have a much more accurate template for design. One more thing to consider, when a shot clips off a part of the character, like here it's just the upper bodies, you should always sketch the whole body of the figure so the proportions are as accurate as possible before cropping to the field of view you need. For this reason I mainly do full body shots, every time I sketch the rest of a character it seems a waste to not finish the other bits too lol. I hope this wasn't too much of a tl;dnr, in short you have a great skillset going on and now all you have to do is feed your brain with the theory to match. I hope to see more : )
