New style by SilentChaosT New style by SilentChaosT
O.K. someone finaly had the guts to tell me I suck at drawing and gave me some tips on what to change and how.
so I went out and found some tutorials on anime bodies and heads so I would have guide lines instead of the free hand crap I was doing before, and I took the persones advice to heart and fixed it.

Since none of you ever told me I sucked at any of my stuff I'm willing to do an art request for anybody who can tell me if I did something wrong in this drawing and tell me how to fix it.

here's the rules
1 I have to find the criticizume helpful, No saying "your ___ sucks" tell me how to fix my___ and I would love to do a request
2 you can't give the same advice someone else did unless you expand on it
3 you can criticize anything and everything, this is about me getting better so be as critical as you can
4 you don't have to play along with this "game", you could just say it looks good as is, though that won't win you an art request
5 your art request can be one of my characters, one of your characters, practicly anything that is within my power to draw.

Checking out your Gallery, you've improve QUITE a bit. Onething that you seem to need help on is proportions though. (and beleive me, you are not alone, trying to get arms and legs the right length plagues every artist) One really weird but helpful thing I do is stand in front of the mirror and make all sorts of mental calculations, determining how long my arms are or how big my eyes are compared to the rest of my body or face.
Another thing about your work that could be improved is the coloring; the world isn't made of flats and opaque colors. You can add depth by blending your base color with a cooler or warmer color to alter it at different parts.

ok thanks. Looks like I have to look up shading tutorials now.
I guess I have to keep my promise of a request, so what would you like me to draw?

A request eh? How about....Mueyong. He's a foxdemon, and my roleplaying character. I have a pic of him in my gallery, entitled as his name.

ok. don't expect this right away, b/c I usualy do two pics then three pages and I already have my two pics planed so I won't start this for a coulple weeks. Sorry, but I have more loyalty to my readers right now. I do apreciate what you did, I'm going to try soft cell shading because of you and so far it looks good.

I'd say from those pics that you should really focus on the relative proportions of different body parts. Though, I'm no master drawer myself =P

Good luck

ok you have improved since your last pictures that i saw. ut you hands a literally a straight line when connect to the hand. if you look at you hand you arm gets a little smaller at the wrist and fans out into the hand. softened the chin a little bit. your torso isn't propostinat with the legs on the blue dress girl. if you plan to do a long shirt don't forget girls have hips. and place the ears just a tiny it lower on the head. not a lot but about 2-5 millimeters should do you some good. and a little it more folds in clothes and you should do fine. thats all i can see for now so i hope thats helps ^^. and you don't have to do a request for me. i like how your improving cause my art a year ago use to be just like yours so i'm glad to help ^^

^_^ ditto to what they said. Everyone sucked in the begining. <,< but with time, usually long months that turn into years, we get better, proportions improved, shading was learned and we got pretty good ^_^ and you will to. I can see that you have enormous potential, and you have the will do do what it takes to succeed. ^_^ i think that it will be very fun watching you improve as artist, and i cant wait to see the results when they come.

good work getting better and its not that I didn't have the guts to tell you you suck which you don't
your young just starting out it takes a long time to get really good and know what your doing
90% of what we draw is practice and to say that you suck would bring you down and that never
helps the creative process I guess what I'm really trying to say is you don't have to be the best
just your best keep drawing the way your drawing it will all come together in time
you have so much potential and it shows

thank you. It may be slower to do it with guide lines but it does look a lot better in the end. I experamented with shadows and shinyness, and it looks o.k. but if you could point me to a tutorial that would help I will do an art request for you.
