What in the world.  :ohmy:

If there is one thing I can give you the highest praise for, it is your creative mindset. Definitely did not expect to see that, but... it was a pleasant shock. Well done!  ;)

Wow, great work here. The colours just stand out to me.
But for her body it seems she's bent over a lot and her back is hidden by her hair, or it's just short.

As always the background was the most problematic thing for me :). I hope everything here seems alright - especially the ballance of brightness and darker tones [I could've gone too far but it's hard for me to tell].

I hope you like it.

It's actually scenic, Daisetsu. I love the sunset effect.
The characters' shadows seem fine by sun position. But the shading behind the large rocks can be darker, and that person sitting behind them. They also look flat.

Great work. Keep at it.

The problem im finding with this image is that there is no sense of continuity. It just feels like it is all broken and fragmented, that there is no sense of... complete "world". Most of this I find is the colour choices and contrast you have used. It looks more like someone has taken different photos and shoved them in for the background, mid ground and foreground. It is possible you are relying a little too much on texturing than proper shading to develop the scene as well.

You also come up with interesting ideas, but a lack of anatomy and proper rendering is bringing down the quality of the ideas. I would definitely have a look into some more anatomy and also into the 3D perspectives of objects so that you can better understand how they can be rendered. Otherwise, pretty cool stuff

Thanks :)

Echo_River - I was afraid that they're already too dark O.O. But thanks, I'll try to be carefull...

Demonfyre - That's right, I mainly focused on the textures especially on the rocks [it was my first time testing an effect which made them the way they look right now] so there may be something wrong with the shading.
About the whole background - you mean that only shading makes it unnatural or is there something else to it?
I still don't know what you guys mean by "lack of anatomy". Is it a about some individual parts of the body [too long, too short etc.] or what?

Here's another one:

Lack of anatomy meaning yes some parts are too short, or not properly formed.

For example, this newest one, the torso area and upper arms are on the short side and the legs could be too long, though the dress hides it. The hands seem small as well.

I like the wings. You might want to look at actual wings to get the right look.

Keep up the good work!

"About the whole background - you mean that only shading makes it unnatural or is there something else to it?"

The textures are what is making it look unnatural I reckon. Shading seems fine. You could include more contrast, but it isn't the culprit for the problem this time.


"I still don't know what you guys mean by "lack of anatomy". Is it a about some individual parts of the body [too long, too short etc.] or what?"

By lack, I mean in knowledge. As Echo above just pointed out the limbs are at varied lengths. However, if you had a better understanding of anatomy you would probably spot this error and correct it. So really what I mean is that you just need to do some more studies in anatomy to reinforce your current understanding and maybe notice a few things about the human body you didn't know before.

Hey guys. Yes, I'm still alive. Covered by all the works at the university :(.

I want to tell you that I've finally drawn a background-only picture. Wasn't easy, but deffinitely a new experience to me :):



And sorry for not being active lately. There's always some project or something else that needs to be done...

Hello there, I like the work you did on the background it looks pretty nice. :D

Though anatomy needs a bit of work on past photos, you should draw more since the last thing posted was at the beginning of the year :o.
I hate you ^_^

Good to see you Rojas :).

Yeah, that's really bad. I can't let this situation to last longer... Although I sometimes make some loose training filling the pages of white-paged notebooks with some random stuff [but nowadays not this often as I used to - so little time...]. I have a feeling that I really neglect some thing on which I should focus more [even if there are other things around me to do]

Nice to see you too.

Yeah, it's hard to get into the mood and find time to do certain things. I wish you the best in your works.
I hate you ^_^
