A drawing I did late at night while at Anime Expo; trying out my new Copic markers :) I can see where there's room for improvement, but I'm practicing and can already see a difference in the way my drawings are coming out!
This looks wonderful Vega! I absolutely adore her red hair! ^_^ This art style must run in the family because it reminds me of the same style your sister has. So, naturally, it looks awesome. The only thing I can suggest is to maybe practice on her jaw line a bit. Jaw lines are really hard to draw on anime characters because of the difficult angles of them sometimes. Other than that, this looks fantastic. You have her proportions looking really good and the coloring is awesome. The point is that you are trying and with enough practice, you will go far. Keep up the great work and thank you so much for sharing your lovely drawings with the rest of us. ^_^
Thank You! I think that the jawline is what I like least in all, but I'm workin' on it. (Notice the RED hair? Yay!) Her face is off because I tried to darken it with a deeper skin tone, but it's an encouraging sketch. Hands and Feet! Gah, they are difficult, but it's so fun! Thanks for the encouragement!
I did notice the red hair and I loved it! ^_^ Like I said before, there is not enough red-headed characters out there. I think you and I are well on our way to changing that. :lol: I have the hardest time drawing the jawline of Inuyasha. He has a squared off jaw and the angle is so dang hard to get right. I hate drawing his jaw. But I keep trying and that is what is going to ultimately help me get better. You are doing so very well. I am quite impressed with your skill, but I figured that you had to be pretty good considering who your sis is. ^_^ Yeah, I am trying to get the hang of those pesky hands and feet. *sigh* I am getting pretty good at drawing hands, it is just the feet that I am still having so many problems with. I think, ultimately, I will draw my characters without any feet. :lol: Keep up the great work. I am enjoying seeing your pics.
Thank You so Much! I love the red and wild hair, It's so cool! Inu-Yasha is really hard to draw, but pull him and Sesshomaru off perfectly. *Show me Your ways, Great one!* Hands are fun, but feet are too smelly to study closely for too long(Mine are, anyway). We're all getting alot better, as we draw more. That's alot of why I draw. Thanks for the time and attention You show us all!
I'm glad you started uploading your art without your sister having to resort to cattle-prod tactics..ha ha. I swear, the both of you sound so much like my brother and myself it's hilarious. Anyway, you have done a really nice job here Vega. I like the sword, sheild, and her red hair. I agree with LadyAnime in that her jaw line looks a little off, but hey...that is what practice is for! Just keep up the drawing and you'll be sure to improve. Great job!
Wow, EvilBunnySlippers, that jawline REALLY is off. Yikes. Taht's it, I'm redoing it!! Thanks, and I'm so glad to have people like You guys and My WONDERFUL sis, Stealth Nerd to help Me and encourage Me!
Welcome aboard BogusRed! I'm so glad you've decided to post your work; we're always here to help! I think you've got a very good thing going with this drawing; perhaps if you were able to move the mouth to the left (our left) a bit, it would help that pesky jaw line problem. It won't go away, but it should help. One more thing I see; her breasts aren't quite in proportion to the rest of her body. If we think about it, the breast is simply fatty tissue that originates from the clavicle and breastbone. I suggest taking a look at an anatomy book (no blushing!), and determing how things...well...lie. Again, welcome aboard, and I'm off to see the rest of your art! *runs over to next page*
Thank You! I'll consider taking anatomy. I guess It's just that is a rather unobserved area that I take pride in not personally knowing about. Hehe. I really agree with your perspective, her mouth would look much better the left. Maybe I'll redo the Pic. Thanks!
