Keen eye, mate.

Great work on the boots! Looks like a fiery tomboyish type of character, I dig the feeling the design evokes! For the arms/hands, I usually just throw on a bracer or fingerless gloves for these types of characters. It's a bit rule of cool since it doesn't always make sense but if you're looking to give them that fiery adventurer type of feeling you could look into that! Asymmetry is also fun to use here, having one arm bare and the other arm having a bunch of stuff can make her look very stylish as well. Looking forward to seeing the finished version!

It's fun drawing your friends isn't it?  ;D

Can't wait to see how the gender bender fan art turns out!

Robins right in the generally, different surfaces will cast different shadows of varying hues. Very rarely will you find a single uniform colour for shadows though this can be done as a stylistic choice. As for skin tones, I usually start generally lighter and closer to orange/red than yellow though this is a personal decision. I think the key to skin and how to make it seem more 3D and alive is temperature. It depends a lot on the actual skin tone (the darker the skin tone, the more orange I use and the lighter the skin tone, the more pink I use) but shading over skin with a warmer temperature colour is generally how I go about handling skin.

Don't forget that you can do some post processing and colour correct things if it seems too green or just leaning to hard into one colour. I do this all the time if I want to make my pictures warmer or cooler. It's a bit lazy but it works!

Thanks for the feedback Robin! I definitely messed that spot up haha. I think if I were to fix, I would just adjust the shading so it doesn't look like two sets of ankles and pull up the foot a bit so it's not quite as long. As for the feet, I've always had issues with drawing them in that perspective, welp something to work on for next time I suppose!

Thanks, the wings were a real pain. I tried different ways of doing it and just ended up painting them instead. It's messy but at least I haven't gone insane yet!

One thing to consider for when you start drawing again is something my figure-drawing professor told my class at the beginning of the semester. She said to throw the number of heads guideline out of your arsenal of techniques. The only use for that guideline is if, and only if, the figure is standing at eye level, facing you straight on, and are standing stiff as a board (and only if the figure has "perfect" proportions). At any other time foreshortening comes into play and will look strange if you try to fight the change in size/proportion it causes.

@mahlua I know what you mean about the layers :P
I get upset when I go over 4 so I can imagine your frustration to get it right :/

@coryn yeah. I think though that you have to have the right sort of iteration to get the best progress though. Still working on the illusive perfect method :P

@lego I started practicing scales and exercises for my piano again. I realized after 10 years why they are so important. Thats half my  instructors (several over the years) fault for not telling me though and half mine for not asking :/
thanks for the encouragement and I will share any more tips I discover. I'm keeping a bit of a diary too so that I can make a book or something at some point :P

@walter thanks. I'm certainly aiming that way :P

Next commision out the way, Kaneki next  :heart:

Definite improvement since we worked together. I have a couple pieces of advice for your future drawings and they work together. First off is to avoid using black/gray for your shadows, even on whites. Shadows almost always the the most saturated areas of color. In skin if you remove the saturation in shadows the effect will always look a bit corpse-like. Second is to keep the environment's color and the color(s) of the light in mind when you're working on the character(s). Surfaces will almost always reflect their color onto the surfaces around them. They are being surrounded by so much green, yet his coat and shadows are very blue.

Two little things I noticed that I think may have just been missed are that Kenpachi's sword guard and Yachiru's badge are still flat color.

Thanks again Lego haha.

And we'll find out soon! But before that, I got detoured by a commission from Fortis.

Here is his character Anaste, the Dark Angel of Galifor rendered and designed by yours truly.


I will be accepting requests again after a short break, join our Discord or keep tabs here to see when!
Now, I need to repay Lego with some MR fanart...
Wow, every time I wander into your thread I can see improvement. Great job on making the figure 3-Dimentional, but don't be afraid to push the darks on the light colored surfaces to give it an even greater pop. I do get a tad bit lost on her ankles/feet though. Either it's an anatomy issue or a perspective one but she appears to have two sets of ankles and her toe areas look concave.
