My art journey~

#1 Post by King-sama » Sun Sep 07, 2014 10:35 pm

I didn't know how to delete the previous topic so I am making another one, I hope it's alright

I made this topic to get some opinions about my art ^^' I want to be able to do drawings that interesting to be put in a vn, but the problem that I have right now is that I find my art plain boring.. so I am trying to get better here by practicing it and stuff

This is something I did recently, I tried to do a new coloring style which I found more fun, faster and less painful.... somewhat lol but I am satisfied enough with it~

The coloring looks nice, yo! The colors (mainly the skin) look like they don't really have much of an effect on the other parts, so maybe you could try to mess around with that more.

If you haven't already, you could go out and imitate and experiment with other artists' styles. It's pretty fun, and it helps a lot with the view of "my art looks boring!"

Thank you very much! XD errr.....I am not sure I get what you meant with the colors doesn't have an effect on the other parts......can you do a color over or give an example if that was ok I WILL THANK YOU FOREVER!!

The coloring is beautiful, especially the hair. But I think you should either make the large light shines in the eyes brighter (more opaque). Right now I'm getting a bug eye vibe, or an "is this a corpse?" vibe. Either way I feel like the technique makes their eyes look glazed over which makes them look the opposite of lively and happy. If you are going for creepy, you're bang on. If not I would change it. :)

Oh goodness, these are beautiful! I especially love the shading on the hair and the super bright colors. Your art is not boring; it has so much "pop!" to it! I just want to pet all that lovely fluffy hair...

Your art isn't boring - The style is adorable and the colouring is just spot-on (never been able to do chibi or colour so envious here); they all like like cute little dolls.

Totally adorable for sure! I get tired with my own style, we all do - but this is something that is VERY marketable for a VN or any kind of game art. Please keep making more!

Your art is very good. I love your sketching, your use of colours... everything :)

There is considerable improvement in your chibis. As for how you could improve them... you could maybe make the shines in their eyes brighter and making their faces more round? It could be chalked down to stylistic choice, though. It's not really that important.

Who said that your art is boring? It's really really good, much much better than mine. And you're improving. I wonder about the male, though. Because it's only one, I can't really tell if it's as good as the others or not, but as I can see, the body seems to be proportionally weird at the chest to the bottom part. But that's just detail and it's not really that weird. Keep it up :)

What beautiful skies! You could try making some edges softer for variation. Also in the sunset image, bringing some of the purple in the sky into the clouds. It's kind of difficult to explain in words, but this photo is an example of the soft vs. crisp and the distribution of colors: http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-EoX0QQA6xeE/U ... et_sky.jpg . I don't know if those things would clash with your style. Your skies have a refreshing look, and I really like the atmospheric perspective!
