Slightly less horrible, I think.

Post by Dead Herald on Tue Mar 01, 2011 7:26 am





I do hope I'm getting better.

Edit: Image was altered to fix a problem with the shading in the upper body. Thanks Wayward.

Edit II, Edit Harder: Dress darkened and breasts de-emphasized. I don't think I can do anything more with this.

Edit III, Edit With a Vengeance: I've posted a touch-up, for the face and hands. Top one is the new one, I hope it's an improvement.

Definitely in the arms. And mothefucker, you can draw hands.

All this makes me wish I had a scanner. I've got Audrey II almost perfect.

I'm glad the arms are improved. Because the arm that penned that work is fucking shot right now. Wink

You sure you wanna shade just for practice? I don't shade at all half the time.

I don't really think of it as practice. I create, I improve. Practice, to me, implies a half-measure.

And it looked way better after it was shaded.

Just saying, if you want to shade & it's busting up your arms go ahead & do it, but if it were me I wouldn't because putting effort into that facet of it can hurt.

Oh. Well, when I draw it comes from a bolt of sudden inspiration. Once I start, I don't dare stop. Or I might not capture the vision properly.

Edit: Or I could lose it altogether...

Way to accentuate the...um...boobs.

Just kidding. You're getting better - keep at it. Are you drawing from life or pictures or anything, or just your imagination?

Er, did I do it wrong? Is it backwards? I wasn't quite sure how to approach that. Certainly something I could fix.

Um, I didn't use a subject. Just drawn from my mind.

The shadowing on the chest doesn't look all that realistic, but it is readable at least. Working from a subject might help you fine tune that kind of thing.

Actually it's quite helpful. I was concerned that I wasn't doing the breasts correctly. I see where I messed up now. A little touch up or two will fix it.

I find drawing breasts a nightmare.

Had to write a comic for school once, the main character's bust was fluctuating like mad.

No. But yeah, you're right. Women need smoother lines, otherwise they just look like men.

Also men have facial hair, and that's fun as hell to draw.

Any better now? I think it looks better. Shade lines around the breasts were thinned out and replaced. Color in the area was lightened slightly also.

Certainly wasn't my intention. But eraser is now worn to a bloody stump... And if i fix it anymore I'm worried the paper will tear.

Also, cleaned up the hair clip. Now it actually kind of looks like a butterfly rather than an X.

Do you try them naked? I've seen drawings of Turians sans trousers & it always looks awkward as fuck. Like their bodies have been drawn to conform to their suits, when it should be the other way around.

I reckon clean up the rest of the shading to the same standard as the bust then. It draws unnecessary attention otherwise.

I like what you've done there; that is an improvement. My eye is still drawn to the boobs, though, but maybe that's just me. My fixation with boobs aside, the whole image is very light, mostly due to the white space around her, and your darkest darks are in the chestal area, the necklace and the butterfly in her hair. The contrast draws attention to those things. Not really a crit, just an observation.

I never really intended for that area to get so dark. It's just too much lead and my eraser is dying a horrible death. Also the right arm is cut off due to being at the end of the paper. There's no place to draw the hand. Unless I completely redo the arm and that's just not happening right now. I'll try to lift some of the dark out in the morning, but right now I'm too beat.

I haven't been able to draw the face properly. I'm not going to even attempt at a full turian until I can draw their head.
