Originally I was going to put both the color and line work at the same time, but right when i was finished coloring it in the program closed and nothing was saved so now im working on it again hopefully in a day or two ill be done.

Now... this character is my own character, her name is Dare. im still deciding on the time shes really in but its more in the barbarian time. she comes from a small poor kingdom, that has run out of resources that now they have to use women to fend off invaders / monsters. Dare is one of these chosen, but she s still young and learning with others that im still coming up with. i came up with all of these stuff about a year ago when i listened to the song -Glorious morning- by waterflame, but this picture came to me thanks to DanJohansen's - Adventua (orchestral).

You need to work on your anatomy with regards to perspective, because it looks like she has tiny stubby arms.

Why is Samus so stubby and overweight, like her right side is just bulging out for no reason.

haha... I saw that mistake when i posted that up, and then i was like screw it hopefully no one will see... now that i think about it should have known better. as for the overweight thing i dont really see it, but then again it is me... hmm, maybe ill redraw her later on

yeah i know, i can draw figures that i have seen, but if i dont see it, it's kinda hard for me so my sis told me to draw a line skeleton and that did help in this drawing. if you saw the first paper drawing you would be surprised.

You're still having trouble with short arms. There's a system of proportions most artists learn before being able to depict the human body realistically that you might find useful. For example (assuming someone is standing up straight and facing forwar d, arms down), the human body is approximately 7.5 heads tall (although many people choose to draw them 8 heads), and the wrists and the bottom of the groin are approximately halfway up the body. Knees are a quarter of the way up. For faces, the eyes are halfway down the head. The nose ends halfway between the eyes and the chin. Split the area between the nose and chin into three. I'd put the lips on both sides of a third of the way down, and the narrowing of the chin on the other third.
The face should be five eyes across, with an eye's width of space fitting between the two actual eyes. Assuming the mouth is relaxed and not smiling or frowning, the corners of the lips should line up with center of the eyes.

Keep in mind different artists use slightly different systems, and that human bodies vary a little bit.

just thought i should post something....
I would finish this if it weren't for me not knowing how the arms go (maybe the legs too but not as much as the arms), and yeah i tried it my self but i can't really capture it. i would take a pic with my phone if it wasn't the shi.... why do i keep forgetting i have a cam built in! i'll be back with a finished one in a few days hopefully in color too.
