I did. She looks like a skinny middle-aged man with breasts and a swollen cranium.
Uh...Thanks for being honest, kinda rude, but honest.
You should really know that when you're asking for critique there's absolutely no point in giving an excuse like "it's just preliminary work". What does that change about the critique?
Wasn't an excuse, they ARE preliminary. I used the first drawing of Annie as my basis for the painting (for the record, she isn't meant to be pretty, the blonde is supposed to be the pretty one, even if she doesn't look it just yet)
It's not like I'm insulting you because you got something wrong, I'm giving advice on how to fix something. You asked for feedback after all.
I wouldn't exactly say I got anything wrong. I value your attempt at helping me with my artwork, I WILL take everything you've said into consideration, but you don't need to be so blunt, negativity doesn't help anyone.
You could have the feet bending forward if you maybe had a style that gave everyone noodle limbs, but given that her legs are drawn like real people legs (if a little simplified and skinny) people will expect them to work, to some degree, like real legs. And that includes things not bending in the wrong direction.
They're not bent in the wrong direction, that would mean they were backwards. If anything, they're in the right direction, albeit to the extreme, I'll tone it down a degree or two when I redraw her. Thanks for the feedback on that.
Most often it's the simplest of names that work the bestWhat? What are you basing that on?
Why are you even quoting this? I said if I think of something better down the line I'd change it. Unnecessary nit picking.
Also I think you have this idea in your head that I'm throwing your critique back in your face, I'm not, you gave your opinion, I gave mine in response. You and another guy have noted that you think the blonde is stood weirdly so I will be fixing that. And I also said I'd be taking the femininity into account because you made a reasonable argument for that too. I thanked you for the notes before and I'm thanking you again. Thanks.
Just started reading your webcomic too. I like it a bunch so far.
