Hi all, Im new around here, Well kind of. Been using NG looking at cool games and art since i started using the internet since way back, but never thought of trying to post my own. Anyways after seeing the artist show-case on Drawing with Jazza, i decided to give it a go. Heres 1 of the pictures in my gallery, you can check out the rest if you want.

If your new too or an old regular pop in and say hello, id love tips to help me improve

This is a really great collection of art, the pencil shading is amazing and the variety of subjects shows a wonderful and diverse gallery.

I look forward to seeing more and I'm glad you decided to start uploading your work to Newgrounds.

Ok please dont take this the wrong way, this is for me to try and learn from your example. it was bugging me that i messed up the anatomy so bad that i kept looking at your comparison and the original (uploaded version and paper version )and i did notice a few things. So i took it in to SAI and did some outlining of what was how sketched it (in red) and how, from what i could best tell what you said i should've done in green.

Also some of parts you drew in the anatomy over my original were the armor, which may or may not have affected how the anatomy is represented (1 example the rib cage).
Im not trying say your wrong and im right or ungrateful, obviously your the better artist and i agree with alot of what you said. Just trying to learn how to make my work better. Thank you for your time

I'm very glad that you took the time to reevaluate your work! You are certainly capable of finding what works well for you. Impressive.

My redlines are not necessarily answers to problems but mere suggestions. Ultimately, answers should be decided solely on you.

Upon further review, I should have suggested for you to use a larger tonal range of value. The idea of dark to push the things you want further into the back and the idea of light to keep things in the front. Right now everything seems to be fighting to be in front of each other.
For instance, the sword blade is brighter compared to her left hip plate. Due to the shine, the blade feels as if it were more in the front when it really should be behind her. A larger tonal range could help increase the sense of depth.

Great job for pencil! I find that my pencil art doesn't have the greatest definition and can be a little too... feathery? So my hat is off to you for inspiring me! Keep it up! :D
