PLEASE READ BEFORE COMMENTING! ~~~~ PLEASE DOWNLOAD FOR FULL VIEW! IT LOOKS SO MUCH BETTER, TRUST ME! ~~~~
Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you, the best drawing I've ever done ever in a million years okay.
I absolutely LLLOOOOOVE HOW this came out. ;w; I decided to mess with colored lineart a little to see how it would look, and I think that's what makes the picture absolutely perfect! At least in my eyes. ;w;
Also did my old cell shading technique for this one. c: I think it came out pretty nice! I'm beginning to comprehend what light is, xD
The background is... Completely random. I wanted to make it transparent, but I seriously wanted to experiment with shading/backgrounds, so I decided to make one. ;w; I'm so glad I did.
As you can tell, I fixed up the anatomy and such from my last WIP I showed you all, which can be found here:
Thanks to *lovelytea for redlining the sketch for me so I can make it look like her legs weren't broken, xD
But seriously. ;w; I really hope you all like this drawing. Took me about four hours from the lineart to the finished product. The sketch took me about an hour... So... I WORKED HARD ON DIS, GUYS. OKAY.
Watch this get like 10 views and 1 favorite. SiGHS
AnYWAYS yes. ;w; I may sound full of myself but this is seriously one of the best drawings I've ever done. Like ever. Ever ever in forever. I hope you guys think so, too!
OH, and if any of you want to critique this, please do so! I always like good critiques. <3
So yeah. That's all, folks! Hope you guys like this drawing as much as I do!
You have improved so much in the time that I have known you! I have noticed you experimenting with new poses, and perspectives which work very well.
Now there are a few areas you may like to look into in the future, so below I will name the areas and flawed portions and walk you through steps and tricks to help and fix those issues for the future.
Head and Neck
I can see you had the image in your head, and you drew it out. It's executed well, however it appears that compared to the size of the body the head is rather small. Now the heads are not huge, but every part of the body is proportionate to one-another. So I would suggest re-sizing the head a little bigger to go with the length and width of the neck.
Remember, the full length of the head from the top to the end of the muzzle is the length of the neck.
Eyes and Muzzle
Now the eyes are nicely spaced, and drawn in your style. So here I may just add a small suggestion, perhaps next time try to make the eye shape just slightly smaller as well as downsizing the pupil just a bit; especially since in light the pupils become smaller and in darker areas they become bigger as to draw in what light there is to be able to see better in the darkness. Also perhaps add some color effects to the iris, to show off the beauty of the eyes a bit more.
For the muzzle I feel that with re-sizing the head will fix the slight awkwardness it holds to it; but once re-sized try to straighten the curve a little leading to the eyes. Since this is your style on things; I am sure re-sizing the head a little will fix some of these slight flaws. Easy fix.
As for the over-all piece, I think it is lovely and I especially adore your shading and lighting. It is wonderful and very complimenting to the piece. I also very like the way you draw paws very much.
Just keep on practicing, and experimenting with new poses, perspectives even styles. Don't be afraid to experiment! Being an artist it is one of the many fun parts, is being in control on the over-all look the piece has.
If you need any more help, or if I was not specific enough please feel free to note me! I will try to help you further
First off imma start with the good things about thi pic.
I absolutley LOVE the texture and colour in this, and i really like how her eyes are partly closed.
Now the things that you can work on.
To me, the tounge lookd a bit thin and kinda "unattached". Also, the legs look good, but the back left leg looks a little odd to me because it looks a bit detached as well. The front right leg looks quite a bit thinner than the other one, wich is a little un natural. One more thing you could do is add a bit more shine in her eyes to make her come "alive" so to speak. I also feel the background could use a bit more detail.
But over all, i think you did a REALLY incredible job on this drawing.
