This is a sketch of one of my characters, Alyria. She's a thief, though she came out looking more like a ranger in this picture. She's also a Nyathra, (a dark elf from the world that some of my stories take place in.) Please don't steal her away and/or color her. She wouldn't like that much. :)

    You are SO unbelievably lucky you started with realism, and not cartoon-style drawing. *wags a finger* I started with anime-ish styles, and that was like, the biggest mistake of my life. Seriously, stick with mastering realism first, because cartoon-ish styles are the HARDEST habits to break.

    Now, I shall attack your drawing, and rip it apart down to every fault I can find. ^^ It's good, but her proportions are pretty off. Her legs and waist seem waaay too short for her head and arms. But that's just a matter of observation and practice.

    Also, there doesn't seem to really be any folds in her clothes. She must be pretty uncomfortable if her outfit's really so starched that it isn't folding. Sweat Drop I used to do that, too, and still do sometimes. So try to remember to have folds in her clothing. Like, around her waist, it'll bunch up and in a bunch of other places, too. Again, looking at people can help in that department (I'm not sure just how many people strut their stuff in tunics anymore, but I'm sure that won't be too big of a problem)

    Keep working! Thumbs Up You're lookin' good, so far!
