Bliss by Krissi2197 Bliss by Krissi2197

Ugh I've had this sketched out since like Tuesday yet I didn't finish it until today. Art Block at its finest.

Anyways here is another anthro drawing! I'm trying to work out my human anatomy and such so I decided to draw two characters interacting. Obviously, Krissi and Veridicus were my test subjects.

It was hard as hell to do this even with a reference.

SO many anatomy mistakes. Like. A lot. Critique is welcome on this! Also, redlining would be even more helpful! :dummy: Do what you'd like as long as you link back to me. <3

So yes. Krissi is snuggled into Veri's chest (Yes he's shirtless) listening to his heart as they both lay on the couch. She's supposed to be sleeping and Veri is supposed to be the stalker that he is and watching her.

I have no idea why the pillow is like floating off of the couch and I also have no idea why the couch is like not in perspective with the characters. I don't like drawing furniture. ;w;

Anyways yes! Hopefully it's not too bad. I'm pretty damned proud of this! <33

Beware that this is my first ever critique, so if I by any chance say anything inappropriate in any way or form, just say so. You have permission to slap me if I do so.

Anywho~ Let me just start with the fact that the drawing looks AMAZING. Well, everything you do is pretty darn epic, but hey, we all have our flaws. :meow:

Vision and Technique


I really like how it turned out, as I mentioned earlier. But, it does have it's flaws. Like... Well, this one is pretty obvious, and I bet even you don't like how it turned out. The hand. I understood that you put a lot of effort in it, and I can clearly see that. I also understand that hands are TREMENDOUS BUTTS *shot* extremely hard to master, and I admit that I can't even draw hands myself, but hey, you'll get the hang of it. What I suggest is that you don't make it look so... Curved, if you will. And try not to leave a gap like that between fingers. take your own hand as a reference. For the ring finger and the pinky, you could add a small angle to it in the middle, showing that it's actually bending down. And try not to make it too separate from the other fingers, as well. :) Veridicus' hands turned out pretty nicely, though. I honestly don't see flaws in them. Krissi's head does bother me just a bit. it looks really nice, I can tell you that. But next time, try to make it a bit higher on the shoulder level. Correct me if I am wrong, but what I mean is that I don't think shoulders could possibly reach that high across the head. At least, that's my opinion. The legs look rather a bit off on Veridicus, but that's no big deal. Overall, the anatomy looks pretty darn great in this deviation.


As I did with the anatomy, I obviously have to critique on the objects, don't I? Anyway, let's start with the couch. It looks better than any couch I can draw, that's for sure. I understand you're trying to make it look like weight it being put down on the couch. And it does, really. But I don't believe he could possibly be that light. What I mean is, and again, correct me if I'm wrong, make the lines a bit more intense. As in, make it look like it has more weight on them. And I suggest (to make it look like he's actually laying on it) starting the lines from his own body, so the pressure would like like it's coming from him. Same thing on the arm of the couch (if that's what you call it). And maybe a little bit on the back part of it, cause I don't think they could lean on that without putting much weight on it ^^; As for the pillow, it doesn't really look it it's floating. It just looks like it'll fall of the couch. If that's what you intended, then, okay then. :XD: But if you intended to make Veridicus look like he's laying on it, then try to lower it and add some pressure to it, as I said before with the couch thing. The rest of the picture looks great in my opinion :)

Originality and Impact

I'm gonna be honest with ya, Krissi. the impact was pretty big on me, seeing that you have improved so fast with anthro art, and also the fact that your anatomy is almost flawless in this, and even more with the fact that you used a reference. ;) As for originality, I wouldn't say that this is completely original, seeing that obviously other artists have done something similar to this over the time. And even more that you used a reference picture to do this :XD: But hey, this looks amazing, and I honestly love the way this turned out. I can't stop talking about that.

Resuming pretty much everything mentioned in this, all you gotta do is add more pressure the next time you want to do something like this again :dummy: All in all, this picture looks epic, and I know that you'll get plenty of favorites and comments on this. keep up the amazing work, Krissi! I look forward to seeing you post more art and improving each and every day! :squee:

Killerkishin Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2013  Student Artist
Wow! This is really good. The anatomy is better than I can do sometimes haha. That's why everything I post is mostly heads f^_^;
THOSE HANDS!!!! Hands are by far the hardest part of the body to draw so overall, great job!
Krissi2197 Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2013  Student Digital Artist
Thanks so much! The hands were a struggle. They're still not perfect!
Killerkishin Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2013  Student Artist
No problem. I know how hard hands can be haha. Ashlee has even seen me rage quit quite a few times when I'm trying to draw them.
Eveeoni Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2013  Student General Artist
I'm impressed, your human anatomy is quite nice. I have so much trouble with it x_x especially nice with the hands. I know many people die over the hands.

Sisnce you already seem to be able to recognize the anatomy errors in this, I'll skip it. As for shading, try feathering the edges more, you're using hard light, which is really difficult to do.
SpiritPrince Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2013  Hobbyist Artist
This is pretty well done. The characters look cute together ^^.
