You need to work on the shadow the lighting and all the stuff that makes your stuff real. and you need to work on pespective a little. other then that, 7/10

7/10 hmmmmmmm? lol Thanks for the review.


Well, it needs a little correction. You need to work on the shadows, and somewhat, try to get the atonamy a little better. :P It looks like that Dad has something in his stomach. Just try to work on the anatomy, that way, you would rock. :D

lol he's got a pack on his stomache. Thanks for reviewing


The shading on this needs some work. The shadows should all be at the same angle. Bah, I wish I could upload an image to this review to show you what I mean.

Okay, so being that I can't upload an image, go make a real life model. Get a flashlight and some sort of object. As you move the (obviously turned on) flashlight to different places around the object, the shadows move with it. The shadows are always on the opposite side of the object from the light source.

In your picture, your shading is coming from every direction. Try sketching objects from real life to get a better understanding of shadows.

Also, your character appears to be slanting to the left. Take a look at this tutorial (if the link doesn't work, just copy and past it and delete the spaces.)


Your character always needs a proper center of balance or it doesn't look right.

I also suggest that you look up some proportions tutorials. The arms look a bit funky.

Lastly, no offense, but it doesn't look like you put much effort into this. Try to spend a good hour or so on a drawing before you submit it.
