So I was trying to come up with an idea for a character, and... well, I don't plan on using this image. Lol.

But still, it's one of my best pieces yet. That's not saying much, but still, I like it. I was hoping I could get some opinions from the dA as to what you think of it! I know my inking and shading are a little off, but if you look at my profile you can tell I've improved quite a bit. ^_^

Any comments or critique are welcome, as long as they help me get better! ^_^

Please don't take this as rude. I love all the artwork everyone is posting, but I did somewhat create this thread to have a little critique thrown my way to, so please, If I critique/comment on your artwork, please give me critique back! I would really appreciate it!

"Classic Equivalent Exchange" as Greed says. XP

P.S. Here is my latest artwork. Going to be posting a fullbody character hopefully either today or tmrw.

-A marker drawing depicting two of my characters, Elektro the electric chipmunk and Emily the badger, cosplaying as Buzz and Kaffy respectively from Sugar and Coffee, a sketch from the Relaunch Era of Nickelodeon's All That.
-Another marker drawing, but this one depicts of Splendid from Happy Tree Friends as he would appear if he wears a full-fledged superhero costume.

Haha! I needed a good laugh today! In a good way! XD
This is pretty dark awesome! The artwork is nice and neat, and the portrayl is pretty close to exact (I've seen like 2 minutes worth of happy tree friends, and this guy happened to be in it. XP)
Very nice work! Keep practicing! I would suggest starting to look into ways to blend everything! It make it look 10x better, believe me! ^_^

The color scheme is really cool! I like it!
My advice would be do some more study on anatomy/ facial structure. It could help you out big time and it'll make your work look 10x better!
Keep it up! ^_^

Wow. Both these are awesome!

I love the sort of fingerprint effect on the first one! It looks very... trying to find the word for it... classic but creative, I guess you could say! XD
And the second one is just straight up beautiful! I feel like it's a place you usually only find in a dream. This is my fantasy geek persona kicking in, but it feels like the jungle/forest on the other side is like a place where monsters and such reside, and there's a peaceful, safe community on the other side of the river. It looks like it came straight from a book! XD

Both of them are excellent! Not really any major criticism! ^_^

I love how it's like a sepia sketch style mixed with digital!
And you did this with a mouse?!?!?!

*bows* I honor you, sensei. Lol.

I know my artwork isn't exactly "this" level yet but, think you think you could give me some feedback on this piece?

Some more definition to the hair would help take advantage of the haircut; there needs to be at least some lines for it in the middle. His ears are a bit too high on the face; they need to be lowered. Considering the style you're using is anime/manga, some more detail in the eyes would also help. Overall, its a good start to a decent concept; just keep working on it, and pay attention to anatomy. If you have any questions, feel free to send me a note. :)

Sure thing! ^_^
The character was supposed to be looking down, thus the high ears, but I can see you're point. ^_^
I'll try filling the hair in later on! XD

I didn't really know how to approach shading the face without it looking out of place, so thus why I left it blank. But you are correct, it something I probably need to start doing. Lol.

Ruuku-Kabe Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
It's technically the fact that he's looking down is why the ears are so high. Lol. But I didn't really support that with any of my detail so You're right. XP
And face shading is hard for me to do without making it look like the character has a birthmark. Lol.

You should not leave heads floating, it looks unfinished, making it look unprofessional. Just draw some lines or give it a nice frame that links everything together.

Do my piece?

Ruuku-Kabe Featured By Owner Dec 27, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Well the reason it was just a floating head was because I was just trying to get a detailed idea of the eyes and hair. But I will keep that in mind in the future! ^_^

I really like it! It reminds of a "Snow White and the Huntsman" kind of flare, like giving a Disney fairy tale a fantasy twist, if you get my drift.
The anatomy is pretty dead on. The face is a little bit squished in imo, but that's just me. Someone else might tell you different.
Personally I would just leave a circle environment there, but once again that's personal preference. Overall, looks EXCELLENT!!! ^_^
