Nice work here

These types of art styles are always my favorites because they bring something else to the table rather then the same ole same stuff that people randomly make. Another good drawing here with some good shades and adding a "SNAKE" as another element of focus was such a great idea, would have been nice to see some sort of backround but also not needed. There are things that can make this better but I like what you bring out in this style and piece, and we need more artists and pieces like this.

would have been nice to see some sort of backround but also not needed. maybe even a tad of color even if it was just the snake.


I like the variance of tonal values and understanding of shadows. You have a really nice way of shading that gets the skin texture across very nicely. (I really enjoy the shading in the nipple area). Areas you have to improve are the consistency of your shading however. When viewed up close, I can tell several different areas where you moved your pencil in different directions, along white a faint white line on the viewers left side of the jaw where you probably erased. The hands also seem pasted onto the black background of the pants. Nice attention to leaving out outlines for the overall figure. I love doing pencil portraits and rate you on where I can see this taken within a few weeks of practice.

I know who that is, but i won't tell :X ehehe Loki! <3. remarkable how your able to capture his silky glistening like skin but still the real life version and playing with him is much more fun; tickles to but still way awesome. :3 snake~

some of it looks un-uniformal, but hay, the shit i draw is simply shit compaired to this! XD
the neck bone and boobs shape looks spot on, the left side next to the belly button looks less fat than the right which ruins some symetry, same with the shoulder to armpit looks like the shoulder is much bigger on the left.

here i am cretiqing somthing that would take me about atleast halph a year to get were you are...
thats why im giing it a 4. if it had color, then id give it a 5/5!

Great work of art. I like the contrast between the silky skin of the girl and the snake's skin.
