Beautiful Day


This is a great piece (I think anyways)! I enjoyed making it, and I think I made a slight jump in improvement. I did use references for the pose; no I didn't copy, for I had to figure out a way to get her body just right. Her left arm seems to bother me though. I don't know why. Anyways, I hope you enjoy!

The picture isn't the best, but you're not bad. I knocked you down a ha-star for your bitchy attitude against some of the other reviewers. If someone gives you advice on how to better your art, you should take it. Also, try to emotionally detach yourself from your work. I'm not saying don't care about your art period, I'm just saying don't think that what you make is "the best thing ever": try to be modest.

Anatomy. Not going to beat a dead horse on this. Though this one is probably your best "Anime" girls I've seen so far. Love the colors, hate the coloring. Looks smudgy. The lighting is a little meh here but again better than most of your others. This is your strongest anime girl. That is not good thing. You have a long way to go and this shows you have the drive, but you need more than that. The facial expression is the most emotion I've seen you put in your pieces but it is still fairly bland and boring.

Odd combination.

Shading seems kinda weird. Like you just put shading in random spots.

And the backround looks like something out of google images, and when you combine it with a drawing, it just looks really awkward and out of place. Next time you do water, draw it instead of using actual photos.

Overall, I will say it had potential. But the many mistakes you made throughout when drawing this held it back from being a truly good drawing. Keep it up, and always try to improve in every way possible.

Good elements, but don't compliment eachother

I like the idea, you have talent to be sure.
I find the pose and expression look a little awkward. Kind of like the character is posing for a picture, but isn't really a dancer. Try picturing how she moved into the pose instead of just drawing it so it looks more natural. It also makes drawing the picture easier when you know.
Also the photoshop background takes away from the picture which lowers my rating. Try something softer for a background instead of photoshop tools since the drawing is bright and colorful which doesn't fit in with the realistic style background.

Thanks for the tip!

stiff and boring

the body,hair, and clothing are very stiff and just dont look right.
and there grass brush tool and water paste just dosent work for it.
i will give you a pass on the clouds because they can be a pain in the ass
but the lens flare for the sun is just lazy.

the boring part i guess you can say is just me but well it is.
it just another generic anime girl.
if you did some that hasnt done to death i would atleast give you a four or five for effort but it all looks lazy.
now you'll tell me that you worked really hard on it. and im pretty sure you did but that for the physical part. on the mental and imagination part there is no effort whats so ever.

try doing something that takes alittle bit more thought and not just because you see everybody else is doing it
