    Looks great. All i'd add is more contrast, even exaggerate the darks and lights if you have to. If you're trying to get better at drawing eyes make sure you also draw them from other angles.

    heavy heavy wip


    been playing a lot of Dota 2 recently

    Everytime i try and paint i realise how little i know about light and shadow and actual rendering. Still, it's a nice break from the weeks of figure drawing and anatomy studies ive been doing

    New to drawing, this is Sonic.

    All feedback and constructive criticism welcome. Photoshop was not used to correct this drawing as I am not good with it. :P
    generally it's not a good idea to shade with the tip of your pencil, unless you're hatching. Try sharpening up your pencil and using the flat edges. This way you can either produce nice flat colour or tonal shading without visible pressure marks (your sonic is riddled with those.)

    Plus obligatory:

    And for some general advice for people who want to draw cartoons or manga or anything that requires continuous stylised figurative drawing, learn realism and proper human proportions first. The more knowledge and experience you have under your belt, the better you'll be able to simply your drawings into your own style.

    The above is really the only crit amateur manga drawings deserve, merely because by starting off your learning curve with stylised drawing will CRIPPLE your improvement rate. If you ever want to be good at this stuff, you'll need to know how to draw a person properly; otherwise you'll always be an amateur. This is the harsh truth.

    Plus a bunch of resources posted ages ago

    If anyone needs books Here's some Books, I probably posted a majority of these before but the links most likely don't work now.

    Famous Artists Course Books
    Basic Landmarks and Proportion.
    Clothes
    Head and hands
    Anatomy

    Other books
    Burne Hogarth Clothes
    ImagineFX Anatomy
    Drawing on the right side of the brain
    Glenn Vilppu Drawing Manual
    Jack Hamm Figure Drawing
    Michael Hampton Figure Drawing Design and Invention
    Michael Mattesi Force Dynamic figure drawing.

    There's also this neat thing

    simple quick pencil sketch of an eye. feedback and constructive criticism welcome:')
    The right corner of the eye should be placed higher up, the whole eye is slanting as it is. The pupil should be a circle. The inside corner of the eye is lazily done. Also it seems like you might have used a reference for the general shapes, but then stopped paying attention to it when you did the eyelashes. Lashes grow almost horizontally from the upper eyelid, so an eye seen at eye-level won't have them all splayed out like that. They'll probably dip from the root into the actual "eye" area and then curve back up and taper off just above where the root is. Then towards the outside corner of the eye they'll become more and more angular and slope downward. Toward the inside corner there probably won't even be any.

    And for the bottom ones, they won't be growing from under the lid, but from the apex of the lid, same as the top. You've done a line underneath that marks where they SHOULD be growing from, presumably without understanding why it's there, because it looks in place. Knowledge is power when drawing anatomy (or anything really)

    Refined the perspective, rethought the setting and backdrop, changed the lighting, etc.

    Since I don't see the Graphic Design thread to be a place to post unfinished or WIP work.

    Mockup for a DVD cover for TTGL Gurren-Hen. Is it good? Something I should change before I start tracing it all? The illustrative style will be in the same vein as their commercial-break cards.

    A.k.a something like this, as best as I can muster:


    Some progress:

    n' some more.

    you could try making a super basic mock up render in your 3d software of choice, its a pretty slab sided shape and it would help seeing the lights

    The helmet should reflect the balloon too and his left leg is a bit funny, it just starts out of nowhere and looks a bit too short and in an awkward angle. His grip on the gun is a bit weird too although I know how hard drawing hands holding something is.

    The explosion is nice though.

    I like it a lot. But the shadows aren't really shadows, they add on eachother and doesn't really act like shadows, the colour of the shadows is too much of the same hue as the base colour.

    The horns are very bulgy and look unfinished and un-rendered.

    Regardless of the reference, it's still too strong in a compositional sense.

    As an artist you are not only allowed to take artistic licence but, in some cases, I think you are almost required to take artistic licence. Here the artist needs to step back and look at how that bright orange affects the composition.

    I think the orange needs toning down. Maybe have something cast shadow onto it or something. In any case, at the moment it pulls the eye down from the face far too much.

    I think it depends on the aesthetic you're going for.

    I bring in this example again (it uses textures and whatnot as well but it's still relevant);



    'Commission: Of Great Age' by ~DanilLovesFood


    Barnhouse's image looks, to me, very acrylic or oil-like. The smaller strokes are used to give the mask texture - I think the small strokes really help to sell the bone-like surface.
