wow you drew a lot since i last commented :P
ive noticed you hardly draw many clothes on your characters, it might be nice to see some with a bit more cover :P
not that i am complaining :P
overall your drawings seem to have narrow hips and wide shoulders, try making the shoulders a little narrower and the hips wider, to balance the female proportions out a bit. otherwise they seem a little top heavy :P

I try to draw clothes but i hate my designs. That's why i put  little now so i can draw clothes over them later on, when i'm finally happy with the clothes design. About the shoulder and hip thing, will do.

i absolutely understand, thats something that i used to do to, now i have been adding clothes myself. keep it up and you will get better in no time :P
once you understand the figure, you can better put clothes on them :P
make sure to draw at least a little from references , to make sure your proportions are realistic :P

those sketches are an improvement, especially the last one, well done :P
yes make the hips wider for the left one.
on the bottom sketch, try making the body a little longer between the waist and groin, it feels like it is a little too high. but certainly it is a lot better than previous ones :P
the neck on the last one might be a bit too thin, but some styles allow for that so if you like it then thats great :P
looking forward to seeing them digitized :P

This one was heavily referenced (body position), to the point of tracing the heels i found on the internet.

Yeah, you can certainly tell the anatomy is somewhat better than your normal stuff

Very sexy position  ;) the right eye is kind of looking in the wrong direction (I always have the same problem with eyes)

Yeah it's a succubus. I want to play with the demon names. like Sucki'i and Suck'u. If you want, try and think of a name for the alien girl. Something funny.

I am trying to work on a children's book. I just finished the cover but the colors are off. Story is done, i just need to illustrate it myself. Which isn't hard since it's not in manga style  :tongue:.

I would like the colors to add another layer to the story. IF you can't tell, the story is a LGBT metaphor.
Since Blue and Pink represent genders, i wanted it in the background but the color combination looked off with the already established colors of the characters.

Any tips from color theorists?  Should i just make the fur color unrealistic so it matches the background.? I left it grey for now but i want the image to pop out. I am also putting a title in the top but i forgot to put it in the image.

It's a cute drawing!
I'm not a professional with photoshop so I can't give you precise colors tips.
If I understood well, you want to add the colors symbolism to the characters.
Maybe you can suggest the colors  meanings by adding a small accessory to the characters, for example, colored collars for dogs/ cats. It would be discreet yet noticeable, not overwhelming.

Keep drawing!

I have been editing and revising a lot of my stories thanks to the replies i have had. I spent some time doodling and ended up making more character designs for Lili but in different angles. What do you guys think?

This is basically my style of heads so i need to practice since i haven't had any takers for my stories in the illustration department yet. Going solo. Just like my username suggests  :tongue:, until i fork up some cash.

anyways, i had trouble doing the low angle view. I really hate it. What do you think i messed up on? Keeping the hairline was difficult as well. I don't know why i scanned it and colored it in. I guess it was my ego.

I did head shots of some characters, for practice. Hopefully, by the end of the summer i will have 1 completed chapter done myself.  I will keep practicing. These are just sketches that i need to get use to doing over and over again until it becomes natural.

I have found this very common trait among new anime. Everyone has the same face. What are your opinions about that? obviously, it cuts down on time.

it certainly is easier to draw similar faces, but i dont really like that in anime. its better if there is as much uniqueness as possible as the style allows to make the anime/manga more interesting.

your face practice is coming along quite nicely, do you use guidelines to make your faces or have you erased them? ive noticed the profile faces look a little flat or long depending on how you look at them, perhaps try making the jaw less long.
but good job so far.
