    Perspective/Anatomy + Composition help please~

    Perspective/Anatomy + Composition help please~

    A b-day gift for a friend [due Saturday, rush rush time]. The general concept was for the girl to be holding a bouquet of flowers that turn into birds in the distance. It's turning out a bit melancholy, as a lot of my personal art do.

    The major problems I see is perspective/anatomy issues. [especially with that back foot, I'm not sure what to do with it] Help with the composition would be nice too, since I have no idea what I'm doing here. X'D

    Well, it's a nice looking drawing you have here and welcome aboard to CA! There's a nice introduction thread here...

    http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=90377



    So first off if you look at the horizon line and her vertical line they don't match.

    The blue line is her axis as you drew her with the horizon line at it's corrected matching angle, (perpendicular).

    The red line is the horizon line as you drew it with the girls corrected matching vertical axis line,( and yellow draw over).

    The ground she's on doesn't seem to match the perspective either. I'd suggest finding your horizon line and perspective points, putting down a grid and work your placements off it.

    Anatomy wise, it looks pretty good. I think the head is too big, giving it more cartoon proportions than young girl proportions, (not by much though).

    Her neck collar needs to be more of a cyclinder in perspective than what you have.

    The line of her right her right arm is running straight down into the line of her dress. This tangent flattens out the figure. Overlap emphasizes depth. You could move her arm in just a smidge or bring the dress behind her out a smidge more.

    As far as the feet, I think if you grid off the ground she's on you'll be able to place it better in correct perspective.

    Hope this helps, looks to be quite a nice piece when you finish!

    Ah, thank so much! That was very helpful~~

    Perspective/Anatomy + Composition help please~

    I touched up the perspective/anatomy a little bit, and added some color to the girl. I was thinking of making her strawberry blonde, and then realized I had no clue what that looked like. So for now she's blonde.

    Now to fix the background, ho! /o/

    looking good... and the help Silvertone gave you was awesome...
    her right forearm is to short... also if her arms were held out a little it might look like she's setting the birds free and it will draw your eye in the direction of the birds... bring the whole thing together...

    Just a quick update. I think I might have started working on the girl too early. I'm still very unclear as to what the heck is in the background. Any ideas?

    Help with colors would be good. I'm horrible with color schemes.

    I think I'm done. It's still loose, especially in the background but I think it works like that?

    Advice, criticism?
