i have to agree with above, because it was a character i am very used to seeing (and am getting quite bored of no offence!) i wouldn't have clicked on it, but other than that i think it's a beautiful piece. The outlines seem a little scruffy if i'm honest but other than that, it's ver well done!
Ah- I find yet another person hooked on art rage ^^ Myfriend is trying to get me into that program- sadly, I prefer traditional mediums. Apparently the paid version is ALOT easier to use though
I think the picture looks nice, If you're looking for critique though, I feel that if you're going to use a popular character to practice with, that you do something to make it different, cause otherwise people wont see alot of point in clicking your thumbnail. I normally try for an unusual pose, or one that's not drawn alot. That way, people go 'this is new' and investigate
Im doing these more as a way to practice painting skills on artrage, since it mimics so well traditional mediums. I know this isnt my best work, but it was a gift for a friend that was very ill a couple weeks ago, he cosplays as vincent on IMVU.
