A pretty picture of Yanagi, from a manga a friend and I are working on called "Angely i Demony," which is Russian for "Angels and Demons." I love the color in this, but royally messed up her legs and bra. She's supposed to have a ring on the index finger of her left hand, but I couldn't manage to make it look right.

    Okay, honestly, I think she looks perfect and her bra looks nice. Jewelery is an obbsession of mine too, but I think she looks fine without any rings and things. Tongue Her legs are a bit small, but hey, the rest looks awesome so you have an excuse. Laughing

      Yeah, the legs are messed up. I keep meaning to fix them. Maybe one day, lol.

    This is really awesome, very strong! My only critique would be to maybe thicken her top leg? It just seems kind of off to me

      It is, and everyone so far has said that!

      I really, really ought to fix it.

    Actually "Angely i Demony" might be the romaji lyrics of Japanese. If you got that line from a song called Inner Universe from the anime "Ghost in the Shell" then you'll know. Smile

    From the way her bottom leg is positioned, you need both legs pressed together. Imagine the right (bottom leg) knee is outwards more, with the left (top leg) bottom knee backwards. This would resolve any leg issues with your picture quickly. In this scenario, the bottom leg will seem a little larger and the right slightly more narrow as you get closer to the knee. Given we can't see the knees, you'll need to pretend you can see them. As it well help you a lot. The alternative is the recovery position for your legs which some seem to hint at in the comments. Basically the reverse of what I just mentioned.

    Whichever you prefer will work fine. I know you'll make it look good. I can tell just by the level of detail I see so far.

    If she's on her back, well that changes things. Mostly the legs. I mention this, as I just haven't ruled out the possibility judging by the way her right arm is extended. That's not a bad thing, I think your picture works either way. Its only a few small details that need changing.

    Other then that, you've got superb talent with drawing. I can tell from looking at this picture, your craft is well developed. The colors are top notch. On par with anything found in a comic or magazine. If your aim is to be a great comic artist, your well on your way.

    Keep up the good work. ^^
