Iris Seraph [Mk. 3?]


Welly well well, I figured out how to take pictures with a camera and upload them from a camera directly to my Mac Laptop thing, since my scanner got immediately retarded after our Snow Leopard upgrade.

But I digress from my technological incompetence.
Here is my first actually developed Original Character, Iris Seraph. Fullview helps to read all of the text.
Apologies if the written text is messy; my hand was twitching like a tazered raccoon on the highway.

So yeah. Review and enjoy.

I like how you drew the body and the guns, very nice! Cirno is pleased.

ZeroInsanity responds:

Zero Seishun Ijou is happy now.

Nice! ^^

She's got some weapons of the finest! (especially the arctic warfare one... a.k.a. L96A1. It's one of my own favourites, too :3)
Only thing that disturbs me are the fingers... otherwise it's really nice! ^^

ZeroInsanity responds:

Dammit, those fingers are the best attempt at drawing a hand I've ever done.
Oh well, thanks.

That's really good!

Is she part of a story you're writing? You've written quite a bit about her, although she looks a bit too skinny to be 132 pounds, unless she's eight feet tall or something. :P

And speaking ofher height, you might want to list that in the description...

Anyway, I like the details and shading on the jacket, but it would've been nice if you had done the same for her pants; they're pretty bland compared to the rest of her clothing.

But the weapons look great; plenty of detail there. Very nice!

Some other criticisms:

The coloring job looks incomplete in some places. This is particularly noticeable where the shirt overlaps the pants; there are little white splotches all over the place.

The eyes are pretty nice-looking, but I don't like how there's no outline around a big part of them. It just looks weird to have the white juxtaposed with her skin color without a more clearly defined border between the two colors.

And from the way you drew her, it looks like she's missing her left arm. I know it's supposed to be behind her, but if that's so, then it seems like her left hand should be visible between her legs given the length of her right arm.

Despite everything I've said, I still think it's really nice. I wish I could draw that well!

ZeroInsanity responds:

To respond to every statement:
Yes, she is the main character of my story Eternal.

Ah, shit. She was fuckin' 117 earlier, then people were going 'WELL FUCK A 16 YEAR OLD IS FUCKING LIKE 132".

Oh, damn. DAMN.

Yeah, it wouldn't be that way if I got to color this on my computer, but that is out of my technological parameters without a tablet.

Ok, good.

Oh, well, that doesn't show if you look at it IRL. Camera flash seems to make that more prominent.

I'll experiment and try to find a way to not make it look so odd.

Ah, well, I figured people will assume she has it behind her thigh.

Thank you. It helps to find a style, at least partially perfect it, and then tweak it to fit your likes and dislikes.
I've been trying to incorporate more realism mixed with an anime style. I feel like it'll turn out nicer as I get better.
