I decided to try some drawing in photoshop. I did a really basic cartoony sketch and now i'm basically painting in a single layer on top of it. It's a bit of a departure from my normal style. A little bit more time consuming, but I'm enjoying the process a lot.

Because this is sort of unfamiliar territory for me comments and criticism would be really appreciated as I feel I don't know what I'm doing hardly lol. Any tips you have would be great.

For unfamiliar territory, you're still doing pretty good with it.

Thanks man, but I give up... Not altogether, but the more I work on this pic the more it looks like the cover of a homosexual jaundiced alien romance novel... I can't justify putting any more work into this.

I'm gonna start again later with better subject matter.

Here's as far as I got.

Thanks man! Speaking of red (or pink i guess), I added some to the pic that I said I'm not working on anymore. I'm going to continue not working on it and maybe it'll get finished. I stole a robot from my robot day pic in the art portal. I dunno if I like it at all...

And right back out again. So please people, I'm begging you: tell me where i have gone wrong. I did this with no reference, so considering my lack of experience drawing anything near proper human anatomy I don't think it's half bad. Other than the shitty lazy hands and crappy feet, why does she look so awkward? What can I do to improve.

I feel the awkwardness comes from a mixture of the face, and the pose. See, not many people stand in that pose very often, as it's a very tense, straight and uncomfortable pose to hold up, so many people would tilt their weight to their left or right, especially so in females. Basically, make the pose a bit more fluid and less straight, and you're good to go.

for the face, it looks a bit... dopey? Im not sure how to describe it, but her face is kinda slanted and her expression looks very lazy for the situation.


I ran. I ran until my muscles burned, and my veins pumped battery acid. Then I ran some more.

Lol yeah I agree. The face is terrible. And good point about the pose. Thanks for your advise.

Her shoulders seem a bit too broad which makes it a bit awkward and I think the nose in particular makes the face look much worse than it really is. I think you just need to lower the eyes a tad and the mouth a bit and then go for a more realistic nose (see image)

cloudy what did toas say about focusing on the negatives, stop doing it, i personally see no real problem with it apart from the nose needs to be more defined

That's one awesome face. I like it. :P Finding flaws and focusing on the negative side of pic is quite normal with artists. A normal person will just comment like this: OMG! That's so Awesome!
while concerned artist will find any flaws to help the artist improve. Although focusing on the bad side often also has a lot of down sides.

I disagree, this is quite very good. Besides his' face I mean. The shading and lighting is just awesome on this pic. And I'm loving the sword. :D

Thanks man, I've been working on my lighting. Picked up some great techniques from a guy named Mike Henry that I recommend everyone check out.
