this is just something ive been working on for a little bit. All i really need help with is the background but more specifically, the clouds. Shes supposed to be riding a sort of air motorcycle that uses a honda engine as its main source of power, and shes being chased by someone (yet to be designed) through the air.
I just cant decide how to place the clouds to make it look dynamic, or, if I should show some of the ground, etc etc. I greatly appreciate any advice or crits.
Pretty good start but where is the right leg and be careful with the right arm.
For the clouds I would try to put some directive lines to make it look fast and (dangerous).
That's all I have to say
My Sketchbook [ACTUALLY UPDATED!]
I have 800 posts
I think you should show the horizon line, a good trick to add some dynamic feeling is tilting the horizon (don't make it horizontal). Also, the character itself is to vertical for my taste, feels like she's about to fall. And why doesn't she fit inside the frame?
Thanks for the help so far guys. heres something i kind of came up with in a hurry. But Id definitely like to hear more opinions! The idea behind it is shes doing a kind of dive maneuver but with the camera at a kind of dynamic tilted view and a slight fisheye lens look to it. the lower right corner will show a hint of horizon.

Maybe curve the horizon line a bit. I think it would be good to have some level of spiraling when it comes to the clouds. If you can give it more of an angle, it can help it feel more dynamic.
I'm not great with words, so I did a quick 2 minute color job to show you what I mean using the same basic composition structure you used with your clouds.
Oh man, that looks fantastic! I think this is definitely the look im going for. Thanks so much! Is there a horizon in that coloring or is it all sky? It looks like there could be land way down below her. Either way it looks awesome.
collored it for ya. im not into anime. not at all. but what ever. the bike itself went pretty bad. i had to collor ontop of the line art, cuz i dont know how to bring up the line art to another level..
nice drawing.. however unsure of her vehicle..
you are the illustrator ..the image should be clear upon
first glance..if its a motorbike ..it must look like a motorbike
if it was a comic strip..you can draw part bike..as other frames before
would define bike..if its one off you have problems of
clarity for your viewer..
my own view was if she's flying we should see space under honda and
parts of her garments can fly behind her giving speed..
do a simplified drawing of landscape as seen from plane balloon skydiving
i know... kinda did this in a hurry, and i can clearly se the errors. when it comes to the bike, i just threw something on there so you are defently right. i just speed painted a background, but i had to go so its not finnished yet.
Holy crap! I posted this pretty much 5 years ago, and I just randomly come on to the C&C section to see it somehow popped up! Awesome.
