    I <3 my Honda (just need a LITTLE help)

    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

    See ya!!!

    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?

    yeah put the horizon line at about a 25 degree angle? give it the effect she is turning to the side, which kind of looks like she is in the picture

    and you have to incorparate a type R somewhere on the bike.. or mugen.. lol

    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.

    define what you draw

    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

    complete honda....

    parts of her garments can fly behind her giving speed..

    do a simplified drawing of landscape as seen from plane balloon skydiving

    as background..

    best wishes..

    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.
