This is an interesting piece, I see that you have put some work in it. Your attempt at semi realism is not failed, it needs more practice, yep, but you definitely have what it takes to get there pretty soon. If it can help, I can point out a few things that hinder your attempt :azraillesama wrote:http://fc07.deviantart.net/fs70/i/2010/ ... lrouis.png
Another attempt at semi-realism.. Fail body :facepalm:
No 3d programs, done 100% at Paint tool SAI xd
@sakurazaki wow it looks so realistic! I'd really love to learn that for my VN too (making "perfect" people)
- The background is a hazy or misty cemetery, dominant color, beige. This should totally have at least some kind of influence over your characters shading, lighting, saturation; it doesn't.
- The bone structure of the bat-like wings is very stiff and unnatural.
- The girls calves, her right one in particular, cave in.
- The composition is kind of off balance, which gives the impression everything kind of floats around, projected shadows on the ground could help.
Even though you're not using 3 D, if you continue in this realistic style, you'll have to think in 3D, where's the light source, where's the viewer, where are the objects in relation to each other ?
I like the outfits. The guy's boots in particular.
