A sketch I did on a train with only 4 manga inking pens at my disposal. Shading is not great, but I kind of like the picture.

Meh

Well my first reaction to this submisison is "meh". I found this submission to be a bit dull, and I know the materials you had to your disposal, but compared to the rest of the art portal this is really dark, dull and gloomy otherwise. I did particularly like the way the hair looked and how you didn't keep the same color throughout that, but by the same token I disliked the shade on her skin in general, because it did not look realistic at all. Overall, well it's an average submission in general I'd say.

Thank you.

I know greytone drawings are not a favorite in the art portal, so that is fine. I know this is not my best work, but I like the character so I am biased hehe.

The 'skin' on her legs is actually leggings of a darker shade than her actual skin, which is why it is darker than the face and arms, though I do agree the 'tone' is off. (I know the neck looks bad... I started it, and had gone too far with it, so I had to live with it :P)

You can say this drawing was kind of an experiment to play with dynamic cell-shading like shadows since I only had 4 shades of gray to work with, and I really do appreciate the feedback and for letting me know that it did not exactly work hehe. Thank you :)

Very nice.

I'm not going to comment on the lack of face, because I know that inking pens aren't great for small details, as they tend to bleed on the paper a bit (which is probably what happened to the hand too).

I quite like it. Backgrounds, please! :P


Harukawa responds:

Thank you.

Yes, the ink bled into the hand and kind of erased it. Not good.

I will try to do backgrounds, but I am more of a character conceptualist, so even though I -can- do backgrounds, it is not my strong suit.
