Hehe, thanks dudes. I agree with all the crits, i probably won't work on that piece any more, but i'll definetely keep it all in mind for my next. I never seem to realise these kinds of mistakes until i start colouring, and then i just can't be assed to fix them (i was really keen on practicing my colouring skills, as i havent tried in months and months). Perhaps i'll draw a big boobied girly girl next time.... nott^-^

I thought she was a man until I took a closer look. I suggest making the face more feminine and making the shoulders smaller. And just to be really picky... the strong light on her white top would reflect onto the underside of her brown sleeve. Great piece though.

damn you stole my crit :'(...I like it except for the masculine ness...

thanks helm, that helped a lot.  i always have that same tendency of showing the nose from several different angles at the same time, ending up with nostrils that face up >.<. it's a classic mistake of mine
I'm not sure about the white in the eyes, it's a pet-peeve of mine when  people do that.
the eyes were definately unaligned, i was thinking more of raising the left and lowering the right, but your edit works.

i also like the redefined jaw, you didnt mention it? but i thought it was one of the better decisions

i worry that the face flattens out too much with the redefined right cheek and extended chin, to me it seems to loose a little too much of it's curve.  Very hellenic, which is more attractive to many people and not to mention how portraits are typcially taught, but one of my goals here is to honor my small-chinned barrel-shaped Danish ancestry :P

thanks again

I don't like the placement of the I. It's too stray. Reminds me of how a person would continue a word when they're out of space, so they just curve their writing. Just doesn't look pretty when that happens.

Adarias, that last picture is awesome.


So... I drew this guy who's linework was really busy and complicated in order to overcome my lack of detailing when drawing stuff with photoshop... Didn't work, but I am proud of the result.
Oh yes naked women are beautiful
But I like shrimps more haha ;)

Use reference on arm holding a stick for that one. Also head is pretty large, but otherwise it's a nice piece.

I actually don't think her/his head is that large. Looks fine to me, since my reasoning leads me to believe in human growth, teen proportions tend to be a little wonky in development. That is IF this person(I swear, I have a hard time defining which sex is which, with your pieces Adarias) is a teenager. Otherwise, yeah, big head. I agree about the stick, though. His/her fist seems to be clenching it at a different angle, than the position of the stick itself. Also, that little knob sticking out on our right side of his/her left knee's armor, really makes it look strange as if her knee is twisted...

Detail looks great though..

So it's a she...

yeah, shes a girl in her late teens.  common proportions dictat that young or just short adults are about 7 heads tall....:



so yeah, big head makes her look even younger.  she has a high waist too, i always goof that.  oh well, ill work on that more next time around.

the spear i noticed the moment i made the line, but it and the hand were both so dark already.  thats the trouble with hurrying >.<, all my first lines were dark and final.

Sherman - id love to see some unification of your lightsource.  not all of his body can be in the light....fix that up and it will be a very nice piece
