No1 sees you cry when it rains


This started as just a portrait of a friend I was going to draw because I couldn't find any inspiration, turned out a bit better than I expected

I have learned a lot during the making of this portrait
1) Hair is a fucking bitch
2) When you think hair is going alright it punches you in the nuts
3) Ok it helps you up again and knocks you back down

Anyway after a lot of trial and error I got the hair somehow how I wanted it, there is a lot to improve but hey gotta start somewhere

Please leave constructive criticism
Have a look on the newgrounds forum for Newgrounds City 2042, I think it has potential of being a fun project
If you have any ideas for me to draw please send me a private message

beautiful eyes.. great work :-D

Not bad.
She looks a bit pale. Try to bring more colors in her skin by adding colors like pink, blue and perhaps green (It sounds weird, I know. Best advice that I can offer: look up some tutorials on how to paint skin).
Also, the emotion of the character does not really convey. If it wasn't for the tears, I would not be able to tell that she is sad. Attempt to draw realistic faces showing different emotions like happyness, anger, arousal, nervousy and sadness. Also, for future projects, I'd advice you to take ambient lighting into account and work with more saturated colors. It will give your works more depth.
But for the most part, it's pretty good. The head looks well defined and anatomically correct (for the most part). I also like the idea you had for this image and I guess it could have been something divine after some refining. For what it is, it isnt't bad, but there is room for improvement and I hoipe you don't stop. Want to see more from you.

For the emotion sometimes people show no emotion but can still shed a tear, just sayin...
