For a composite cover I am making of a lineup of people. 7 of them to go. Manga Studio+Cintiq completely, 1 hour.

Nice work on the blood. :>

I don't know what it was, but I never really got into Manga Studio, (let alone Photoshop) for line art. I'm more of a Painter person.  :blind:

EDIT: Oh damn. I was searching for some lesser-known painting applications to see if I could find a gem, and I did. http://www.artweaver.de/index.php?id=59,141,0,0,1,0

Artweaver, from the half hour or so I've been playing with it, is better than the newer versions of Painter. Maybe I just don't know how to use Painter effectively, but if that's the case then Artweaver is a streamlined version which is a plus. Acrylics in painter always look too flat or are annoyingly sharpened to give the impression of "bristles". Artweaver, on the other hand, handles them AMAZINGLY well. It's like you're really painting, which I haven't been able to say for Painter.

Helm: Both are super badass. Don't like the plaid too much but I can't think of a better approach (That isn't probably horribly time-consuming that is.). The (our) left knee of the girl has some weird folds, not sure exactly what's wrong with it though.
The right thigh, the inner contour is wack. Like the curves are wrong. See:

???
Oh yes naked women are beautiful
But I like shrimps more haha ;)

There's a whole lot of small things that bother me about your characters Helm, but the biggest thing is that i can't place the eye-level anywhere, as if they're completely perspectiveless. Rendering is beautiful and easy to look at though. Lotsa nitpicks to follow if it's of any use.

Drazzke, now challenge yourself to a duel and draw your characters in 3/4 view and with construction underneath.

Her face bothers me a lot. Maybe something like this instead?

I decided I'd play a little game with all of you to see if I'm rendering properly.  :-[



Could someone draw a side view contour of that with the light source and camera marked, please?

I've already done so, but I don't know if it's very apparent so I'll compare as soon as someone replies to it.
