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)
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 :

- 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.

A black mech that could smash everything into bits and turn anything into dust. Equipped with all kind of weaponry; gatling gun, satellite interception missile, or gigantic drill and rocket punch that every men always dream of.

I love mecha, yey ^0^

She's looking good, I like the fact that you're going for a lineless look, it's hard but can be quite rewarding.

A few crits :

The shoulders are unbalanced, her left one is ok, but the right one is too small.

The spot on her forehead, right above her right eye gives an odd feeling, maybe because it makes the hair above feel like it's floating, or that her head is still expanding while it should start to curve in instead, a drop shadow or lower hair could help.

@ azraillesama ohh that is lovely! <3 I like her though you may want to move her eye on the right side ( the eyes on the side the ribbon) needs to be moved in just a smidge more towards the center of her face. Other than that she is lovely I love the way you color. The eyes are especially lovely.

I participate in a Role Playing in Deviant Art, titled Rising-Crowns. And this is my character. The RP is quite fun where you have to draw a lot (to improve). So, shameless spam: join me ^_^ I'll be very happy if you do (and even happier if you write [referral:LVUER] somewhere in your artist comment).

Hey all! I finally managed to get my computer up and running, (the one with the art program) so I made a character sprite for the main character of "Darker." I'm waiting to add expressions.

Hello art thread! Didn't feel like scriptwriting today, so I drew some characters that have been floating around in my head for a couple hours.

What up, Azra. Your art's looking good. ^^

EDIT: Time for an avatar change!

There's a problem with the left heshe. He's hips can't be leaned, since his abdomen his facing the camera, and his chest isn't twisted. you can solve this one by re-coloring according to the muscles.
Also, I know it's a yaoi thing, but he's way too thin. Either you shorten the length of his shoulders, or make his hips more wide. This will make him look feminine without looking bad.
I liked the coloring.

The demonic one to the right is a bit on the skinny side, but his torso is twisted so that's why I didn't make it as thick. So maybe adding some shading lines and curving his back out a bit more will help that out. (Looking bad? I wouldn't go that far.)

There's no problem with the one on the right, I'm talking on the dude to the left. His hips look like a woman, his shoulders like a man. there's also a problems with the angles his hips turn to the camera, but that's minor.
"Either you shorten the length of his shoulders, or make his hips more wide." - right now it doesn't look feminine, just anatomically wrong.

Self quote: "This will make him look feminine without looking bad."
The bad referred to the way you made him too thin as a way to compensate for a mistake in the proportions. Don't take it personally, I'm not criticizing you, I'm criticizing your art.
