Reminds me of a magikarp.

im sure its mostly cause the colors are red, yellow, and blue and the dirigifish got a lot of yellow and red. there is a slight chance that i will change up the colors to avoid this issue, though the inks that i will use for the prints will not be the same hues as the ones i used digitally.

I dont really want to make a new thread for this, but does anyone have any subject matter or requests for me to do that you think may help me improve or just look cool in general? i have found that some of the more interesting drawings that i have done were inspired by someone elses words, even if they give me a word or two. I may ultimately do it in my style, but it is always fresh to draw something that isn't 100 % you.

Get yourself over to Artsy poses and have a go at sketching some of the kick ass model pictures they have over there. Whether you are a novice or an expert drawing from a good reference is always good practice and will get you used to drawing bodies more realistically and from that you can develop your own style and play around :3

Her knees seem off. And her posture looks unnatural like she is unbalanced ( I AM TERRIBLE FOR THAT so i feel your pain bro)
Also the creature in her arms needs to pop out more, at first glance i thought it was a bow. So add some more defining lines and shade and highlights. Apart from that it's a good start :3 I like it.

your outlines make her separate too much from the background. For a character design it looks alright, just the head is a little too big.

well, im glad those are the only negative points you gave. lol while they may seem like mistakes, the thick outer line art and stylistically large head are both intentional.

This is the actual color reduction monotype print that i made over the course of 3 days. I think i turned out pretty good and i like it quite a bit more than the digital design. what do you all think?

Try getting into the hair. Have more lines represent the body and flow.
I feel the the choice of colors are a bit questionable.
It's tough to bring pink and green together here. You need more white.
Personally I feel the grey for her helmet thing is a main trouble spot.
Try creating alternate color schemes that's usually the fun part of making images.

First off this is incredible. The contrasting colors are just beautiful to look at. Adjust the photo a bit (straighten and crop) and put this in the art portal it deserves to be in there.

Anyway moving on to your more recent stuff. Your characters have really improved since the start of this thread, I particularly like the way you do noses. I think your most recent post shows a lot of potential and growth, it just needs some cleaning up in the linework and some light shading on the body and hair to really make her pop out. Also the expression seems a bit weird I don't know if you were going for shocked, scared or realdoll but right now her face is pretty deep in the uncanny valley, I'd say lower her eyelids a bit to give her a less odd look. But hey keep up the great work, I'm sure the future holds some amazing art for this thread.

it looks nice but her shoulders are wider than her hips which takes away from the female appearance...even if she is a flea :P
