    I reckon a name with an X at the end like Jax, or Minx,or something...
    Critique? The picture is on a major slant to the right. Attached a red line showing the gravity- threoretically, if you have half of the body on one side of the line, and ahalf on the other, the person will be balanced. Obviously if they're jumping, or falling this does not apply, but gravity is a big cue of disbelief- if the picture is slanted, then the mind has to work to correct it rather than look at the pic.

    Easyest way to stop this? Draw the head, the ndraw a nine down the page showing where gravity pushes the head. The body will always try to keep the head upright by keeping the body evenly balanced on both sides of the line. It's all about counterbalance. And sketching the form first Smile

        Oh no! Don't fix it digetally- you'd never get it the same ^^ Unless it's a lineart. Just yeah- for future stuff. The line technique is the easiest way I've found for balancing figures Yes
