Crikey, long post;BG:
So true, i seem to have missed her shoulder when calculating since it was covered by her sleeve. Sort of an illusion i guess. Anyway i'll plan on fixing that.Aelyrin:
I really don't see that... :/ Even when i crop her face and take away her hair i can't see how she would look more like a man than a woman, but perhaps it's just because in my imagination i 'believe' it's a girl, so my opinion is biased. When taking into account the crits below i'll try and work on it. junkyboy:
Thanks man. I've always liked this way of draw folds in clothes (loops) but i've never really been able to do it, until now i guess
I understand your edit, she looks alot more realistic and easy on the eye there. Made me realise how pointy her chin is (anime's fault) and shortening the gap between her nose and lips helps (although one thing i don't really want to do is to lose the personality i kinda see for her the way she looks atm, and that could change that significantly). I also like what you did with the nose, as subtle as it is. Shows how big i've drawn her eyes, but i still quite like them >_< I'll play around a bit though.Adarias:
Your edit seems to show a much older woman with a much more built up body. I'm unsure how much i'll actually use it. How you've drawn the hair really does show how puffy i've drawn mine, problem is, i really like messy hair
Also, at the time of the image the two girls would have been travelling in a forest for a few days, and i need to show that somehow (of course you wouldn't have known so no probs). Of course i'll always try it out though, and will probs end up calming down the hair on the left of her face. I didn't notice that about the wind and her clothes but it seems to be true around her waist (or am i looking in the wrong place?) The direction of the wind is kinda important in relation to strengthening the feeling that what they're looking at is quite ominous, to me at least it helps bring that feeling across... right?
I'm probs being defensive because i dislike changing a drawing greatly after first drawing it, which is a problem more than anything i think - as i feel this way even though i know i can save a backup of the older version.Faktablad:
Haha i see what you mean. It's definetely a stylistic choice, since this is more of a comic drawing than a 'realistic' one. Thanks for the ref, i'll see what i can do to make them a comfy size.
Thanks so much for the help guys. I'm really glad i posted the pic now.
