Nice work. I remember critiquing the expressions on your artwork a while ago, and now the expressions are one of the things I like most about these characters. The lines are nice and clean, too.

I wasn't pushing it, just describing my thoughts. ^^

Right XD But a whole day...would be a bit much? hehe

Thanks  :D I think the expressions mostly reflect myself usually. Whenever I draw a specific expression, I find my face screwed up in the way I'm imagining them. (Then by the end of the day my face aches XD)

FlossAndChaos- I see. Guess I'll have to scrutinize every picture before drawing eh?

Working on a new project. I find I have problems positioning the body and neck after I draw the head.

By the way, I don't want to be a nuisance, but would you be interested in competing as an artist for the "King of Raiders" contest on this site?

Quote
The King of Raiders is a contest on this very site in which artists and writers attempt to create sizable one-shots (45-65 pages) in an allotted time slot. Participants can go solo or collaborate. Collaboration is decided by a lotto in which writers who have finished their scripts by a deadline (already passed) are paired randomly with registered artists. Currently, we have three writers who have worked hard to finish their scripts, but only two artists. We cannot continue with the lotto until we have one more artist. Registration is free and the deadline for the product is March 30, 2014 (extended due to the World Wide Jump Contest).

We need one more artist for the lotto which will pair artists and writers for collaboration. You'd be competing as an artist against the likes of FlossAndChaos, Aldrich Crescent, Roshon21, Nairbons, Jamieboy113, and Kyuryu-kun. Three of those artists have chosen to go solo, and one of them, Roshon21, is collaborating with his cousin, Takahashi. We have three writers (me, legomaestro, and Hikari) but only two artists in the lotto. Would you be interested in being the third artist? We don't want to keep the artists waiting, but we don't want to involve you in something you're not interested in.

Hey Paipis,
Sure I'm interested XD. But I just don't want to disappoint the writer cause I'm really clueless about how to make a manga. But I think this is a good opportunity for me to learn something new as well as revive my competitive spirit (Hehe *Smirk*). So sure, I'll join.

(Note: Read your post yesterday and had a heart attack. [jk]. Then had to calm down from fretting over something I hadn't started yet XD. Decided to sleep on it. [Ended up dreaming on it too] But I got positive feedback on it from some friends, so there's no turning back.)

I don't think any of the writers will be disappointed. There are some tutorials here on several subjects, and I'm sure there are people who can answer your questions. A lot of competitors were and are nervous about it, but I think it will be a valuable enough experience that, even if each of us creates something horrible, we'll all learn more about how to create something amazing. I'll notify Kage, and we'll get the lotto started right away. You're free, however, to start whenever you please (as long as it's after the lotto).

Paipis - Great ! :thumbsup:



Should never rush my drawings ehehe.
Little girls pic XD.

Here we have one of my favourite kids in the centre spotlight-

Nameni Foxtayl (Always keep changing her hair >_>)
Age: 7 (Or so)
Physique: Short and small (Than the average 7 year-old-er)
Other: Orange brownish hair always kept in two ponytails. I see her in black shortalls with a red sweater
     beneath. Not a major character, more like a comic relief, always pestering her "Ronny" (Main character).
     Just plain impish and mischievious. History goes that she's from the Nanrot clan, but no one's supposed to
     know that, uh, (So don't go telling anyone! XD).

On the Left there's (In a rare happy mood, I don't usually picture her as happy) :

Ettilis Hakara
Age:7-8 (like Nam)
Other: A mild reserved kid that often is in charge of transferring files by analog means, eh, by foot carrying
     a huge file case. Black hair kept in a flatish ponytail while bangs get in her face. Her older sister had turned
     against the Acor and works for the Wodan as a, well, centurion, you could say, having command over
     shadows instead of soldiers (Difference being you don't have to pay them and you can always summon
     more when others get wiped out).
           Clothing is basically an acori vest (But has to be pulled over the head) that's probably green, with a
     T-shirt and beige pants. Ettilis wears iron-tipped boots (Very common among the Acor).
Name: It's not Et-tea-liss. More like Eh-teh-liss.

And last on the rightmost (The only figure at the right)-

Dakei Adsoku (Called "Kei" cause the Da is just...Dah)
Age:8-9 (Little older than the other two anyway.)
Other: Small girl with black hair. She has a twin brother (Da "Kon") and both of them are mainly Infiltrators
     (just heading into targeted bases first to open a way in) and their key tool is a grappler (Sticks on the belt
     type device attached by a strong wire). Usually as mild as Ettilis, but more emotional around her brother.


Whew, Yes hands need major attention, and I've been told their bodies are too small (Or maybe the head's too big). And the eyes...the eyes...ooph.

What do you think?

Your art is gorgeous, Echo-sama. However, if I may offer some advice, you've got a great style going, but it's a waste of beautiful talent if you don't try to draw some new facial shapes. If you want, I could show you what I mean. But you repeat the same eyes, mouth and shape over and over and it may leave people confused with who your characters are. Your artwork is beautiful though. <3 Lovely pencil work! Love the shading too. Nice attention to detail.

*Austa hits an honest bull's-eye*
That's a certain error I find myself making all the time. It was worse before, but I guess I haven't left the bad habit behind XD. Other face structures ('specially when it comes to boys) make me cringe when I have to change the eyes as well.

Alright, time to make a change! (somehow, na?)
Though they're all from the same clan so...I guess it's a bit of a cheat to have them similar ehehe.

Hm, I wish you had Skype. I could show you sample face shapes to experiment with. All it takes is some experimentation. Try drawing random circles. Random eyes shapes.

As for applying it to characters, think about the type of character your character is. Are they soft and round, sharp and evil, strange and bubbly? That always helps me. I wish I had an example for you, but I don't. Maybe over PM, I can give you a better explanation without taking too much space.

Here: http://browse.deviantart.com/art/Unique-Features-Tutorial-Pt-2-154756158 This helped me so much. And she's got another tutorial for body shapes and men's faces. Remember, while you may draw anime, you have your own unique style and you can adapt anything or leave anything you want.

None getting Skype sorry XD.
Thanks for all the tips!



(Lazy) drawing today of my OC Main Character Rountu Tiuruh with Noturn who's supposed to be completely BLACK (come eat me picture). Plus does he look right beside Ron or close up front?

Ron's really from the Nanrot clan, so he's a shadow user. I ended up drawing his head right at the edge of the paper 'cause I wasn't sure how near I wanted Noturn to be.

Oh you got some great skill in drawing! The last one is impressive, animals are hard but you did quite well. I would look into the composition a bit. The human character, i would have placed him a bit lower. Since now perspective wise, the legs of the animal don't really make a lot of sense; they would be below the ground level. Also, is the human running or walking? In that case you might try to make him lean a bit more forward, to add some more dynamics in the pose. (diagonal lines give a sense of movement while straight lines give a sense of rest.)

They look like a really great couple though, awesome work! :D

Thanks Callesthe!
And no, Ron's not running. It's just a pose. He was supposed to to BE running, but Noturn's head was blocking the way so I was uncertain about leg position. Arms were different before too.
Animal would've been running too. Legs are actually a weak point for me in animals.
