I think the big dandelion on the top left could use some more refining, it's kind of a big element in the picture.
Nice use of color btw.
Joetachi, there's anime-styled stuff in the top bar of this site! Difference is it's ridiculously good.
The truth is that the game and anime fandoms are almost one in the same, and on this site, work that leans towards either one lacking in foundation will get called out. There's very little bias, only a REALLY STRONG tendency for a lot of immature artists to go into anime because it looks easy and cool. Great anime is just as lauded on CA as great game and movie production work.
But then very little of either is considered "respectable" when you're talking about the gallery scene.
joeian - it's good to hear you're practicing! As I said, there's a lot of really great anime out there, and the thing that unites them all is a strong foundation. You've shown you can digitally color, so focusing on the basics for a while and then coming back to that skill will serve you well.
Im not talking about respect in the gallery scene its here. I knew he would get comments about things that wont help him get better.This thread would not be getting 5 post if it was done in any other style.
My Sketchbook [ACTUALLY UPDATED!]
I have 800 posts
Go and start a Sketchbook,don´t be afraid!!!There are many "anime-style" artist here,and we love them!!!I am not with nonie about this.Well he is right when he says that is not only about color,is about the basics on anatomy and figure study too,but none can say that your piece is bad!!!!That should be ridiculous!Your piece has some anatomical issues that can be fixed by doing what nonie sais,by focusing on anatomy.Also the grass needs more work.
About the debate here....well...I am not a huge fan of anime style,but I admit that I enjoy anime.Actually I have been watching School Rumble recently!!!
Those who think that anime is cheap or is some steps under american animation should watch Paprika,Chihiro or Ghost in the Shell.Cheap?Maybe.Great?Absolutely!!
yeah~you are right, i need to study more about the anatomy
how ever, i am still 17, i will go to university to study more about art this year
may be go to japan~lol
Wow, actually you're really good for 17! Impressive Keep practicing and keep posting here and you'll go far - if I'd had this site at that age I'd porbably be years and years past where I am now. Back then I was on Elfwood.com, drawing anime characters in colored pencil, hehehe!
And I'm a "she," pvrhye and Camara
ah, the typical pose and just typical picture kinda turns me off to it. You pulled it off well but the thing is that you should've spent more time on the basic concept of the drawing you were going to do. I think it best to make your art stand out in subject matter even if the style isnt anything crazy... If its funny, fun or just different it'll stand out to a lot more people. I think its funny how many people ripped you up for this, if only I could count the number of Marko D's on this forum(not that the anatomy isnt worth it).
But anyways, keep drawing and start working on your anatomy in the sketchbook thread so everybody can help you out.
