So after a few days of trying to draw a decentish elf I came up with this:

Oh also it's not a sketch, it was taken from my sketch I just cleaned itup via pixels.
I would however like some help on how to turn this into a decent sized Sprite for a game because as of right now I have no idea how to do so.
Tried shrinking it down to a decent size but it destroys it.

I'm a bit tired so I'll try to keep this short and simple :)
Have you got a picture refference of him? To help you with his current stance, if not it'd be a good idea.
Where's the light source coming from?
I think his torso could do with some correcting as his chest doesn't quite look like that some working on that would be a good idea as could his face.
Could you also provide a color palette because I'm a tad to lazy and tired at the moment to collect one from the image haha.
His current stance isn't exactly correct either as his feet don't seem to be pointing in the way that it should be. So turning his right foot round a bit more could help quite a bit, some dithering could be benificial for his purple tail / stomach.
That's all for now.

Haha My bad.
Wasn't sure if you were keeping them in or not. So I thought why not it could be useful.
I look forward to seeing the lace gloves.

She's look human till you hit the hands.
In my opinion I feel her hands look like a wooden puppets (Ironic I say that due to my username) I think if you stroke the brush gently and not such a bold colour outline in her hands it wouldn't look so wooden like maybe.
Take a picture of your hands and compair it to hers, you'll see that there is no sharp line sighting when holding a flower like that. If that makes any sense.
She's getting there man!

Yikes! I nearly forgot something!
The hands, I feel they're far to big for her as well. Most girls I hang round with are roughly my height so like 5"7 and have small and skinny hands. Take Taylor swift for example if you've seen her hands they're quite skinny as are her arms. I think Taylor Swift is the kind of body and anatomy you should try to follow as the face has been focused upon her refference.
Also her wrists and forehands are suffering from the hands behind so large due to her head being smaller in comparision to her body.

Hehe PuppetMaster, I'm far from Master. You're much closer to it then I am. I've just been hovering around the Oblivion nexus for around 5 years so you can really pick up views and points due to the meshes and the problems people have with them.

Pausing the general polish is a brilliant idea for now till you get the anatomy better sorted to suit her. Because you may scratch several areas of her body to redefine her. You've got face dead on target now though! So keep it up man, I know you can do this in time.

Thanks to all for replying to my thread it's useful information.

@Krice That's a few times people told me go with a Wacom so I believe I shall, I have no idea about the menu buttons and what not they're not very informative on there website they're just trying to sound so good to sell quickly.

@yrizoud I'm guessing your europian as well, well I'm in the UK but I looked over the website and they don't really go into detail of what a graphiccs tablet can do, especially on the Wacom Bamboo Pen, although I seem to pointing more towards the Wacom Bamboo Pen, not the pen and touch because I like leaning my hand upon the page to sketch properly for me anyway.
-50% pressure sensitivity... Hmm I know that's half of how sensitive it is now with the Pen and Touch but the pen and touch are useless for artists due to the touch sensibility so that knocks that type out of the water.

@Mathias I'm definately going to be using it, Indigo made me really want to get one because of his lovely forest work and of course others of which I can't remember names haha so don't be offended to the others. By "don't Skimp it" I can only find the Bamboo Pen of which being one without the touch for around 50. I'm not sure if that's just far to cheap but either way it doesn't really inform much about the product.

One thing that does make me wonder is obviously there's different stroke pressures like hard and soft, when you select a colour dependant upon how hard or light you stroke does the colour change to a birghter and or darker version? Or am I honestly just hoping for a mircale haha.

Terribly Sorry  :'( I couldn't tell because in your first post it looks like bricks for a building.
When creating a side walk chose a better color palette to help define cracks.
When doing the side walk and such have a refence picture to help you out instead of doing it off the mind. It helps honestly.

I personally preffered him yellow.
And I know your friend wants you to keep the black outline but I think it could really benifit without it.  :-\

Such a huge improvement upon her head! It looks much better then when you had started.
I can't actually give you any more constructive points upon the head anymore haha.

Is the body going to be on the book cover as well?
Because I think you're trying to go for the hourglass body shape, of which her hips need to be a bit wider, where her breasts are they look too.. Big for her, I think it could be because of how broad her shoulders are making the image look like she's far to top heavy in my opinion, I'm not very good at anatomy so I can't really say a lot but when I looked over that topic early it really opened my eyes to a womens body curves and what not, maybe going over there to find a typical body shape and try drawing that could be benificial. Her chest goes a bit to far down, making it seem like she has aged breasts ( Putting it politely hehe), most 18ish year olds have perky breasts (not trying to sound like a perv) so maybe highering them can help as well as sorting out a few anatomy aspects upon her.
I don't mean to be so critical I just know you've only got a few days left to perfect it really befor you can hand it in and I want to be useful.  :)

Hello all,

I'm interested in getting a graphics tablet but not sure what brand or type to get.
I've mainly wanted to get a graphics tablet because I've seen works from Indigo mainly and others also who use graphics tablets to create such beautiful pieces of works.

As I've never owned a graphics tablet I was hoping someone could tell me how one of them actually works, is there a colour palette in the corner? Pencil sizes? The works, the more I know the better as I hope to create decent pieces of art to use for my game that's in current production and to build up a portfolio.
Also any links to your graphics tablets you've bought and or currently using would be greatly appreshiated and obviously opinions and prices would help a lot as well, along with what's good about them and what's not so good about them if any.
