I'm impressed that you indicated weight by squishing her bum but it's a bit too much. Because of that it makes it look like her pelvis is missing.

I suggest to start getting more into the figure. Use subtle lines to indicate muscles and folds of skin.
You've done this before in the Dullahan one but that knowledge seems to be missing in this one.

Thank you. To be honest I didn't look up references on this one(and it was a bad idea to go without structure lines). I do do some figure practice but when I applied it to this drawing I completely changed it to this. I need more confidence in my knowledge. After this challenge though I'll be doing a lot of figure drawing. Thanks again oh and while you're here I love your work.

this shows the anatomy of it I think she might be too tall, but it's still good.

this is the real thing, though I don't know too much about dresses so I didn't know how it would fold.

Your drawings of poses and forms are definitely improving. However, I think from looking at your past work, you might be sabotaging some of your angles and perspective when you color them. I don't know if you have a pen tablet or a way to do line art on them, but even if you had pencil, I would make it as "clean" as possible, with very smooth, prominent dark lines. Then start with a color base....just even flat colors. Then imagine there is a point of light in the room, and (what I prefer), is to start doing hard line shading, basically cell animation style.

If you use soft gradients like you've been doing, I think it starts hurting the depth of the drawing. My 2 cents. Keep going though. :D

I was starting to wonder when someone would notice this. Yeah if you go to my old account I put a post about me not being able to color. I never actually had a real teacher teach me, not even in high school, they only kept on repeating the definitions of simple terms like value, we never actually did it though. So this past two years I have been practicing form and stuff from books and trying to find my style. So I'm barely getting to shading and color. Okay as for the lines yeah I've been using one layer only for the line art. I have been getting better at cleaning them up ,but it is only for this challenge.

Thanks for the tips I'll be sure to practice with those in mide.

You have great imagination. Only I can add is is to work on your composition. It will really make your characters pop from the page. Right now the characters look flat and one dimensional. Do some action poses like running or swimming. Good work though.

Like this? I did this at work so they might suck due to the lack of focus

Still doing my thing here. Was focusing on the pelvis today.

hmm... haven't heard any feedback lately. Remember any feedback back would be great, even if it's just a good job. That at least tells me I'm doing good so far. Thank you.
