Hey, you added new work! I must say, I *adore* your new design! She looks solid and practical but still cute.
Colourwise, the choices also seem to have an element of practically or realism - but for the sake of balance, I'm kind of dying for some small hit of colour in her lower half - like a criss-cross band on the right thigh or something...either that, or for the contrast to be stressed more, like the rest of the costume being even more monochromatic, with the bit of sweater showing an iconic hit of very red red. That's totally just me though ^_^
One small thought about the pose is that if her right foot was turned out instead of in, that small gestural change would make it a lot more consistent with the calm, cool expression on her face (which maybe jars a bit with the cuteness of the inturned feet).
Wonderful work! And not just because I find it refreshing to see varied figures and practical designs, but because you're obviously experimenting and trying all sorts of things, which is awesome. Can't wait to see more! ^_^
(PS Your equation on how much skin to bare made me laugh ^_^ I do agree that 3 out of 3 is a bit much!)

I like the third one you posted with the darker colors. Her clothing looks just a little bit more pragmatic, but then I think these gals are going more for style than pragmatism. Keep it up.

Well I dont know if anyone has made this comment or not because I got tried of reading about HTK instead of what you have done here.
This stuff looks really good. My big crit is that the feet look like you drew them head on. If you figure that the view point is at least waist high you would really see more of the top of the foot.
Cool- be good
Awww, man!! Sorry about that. Yeah,thats gonna stain.

the third character is nice, but i think what I like most about your style is how you pick up this highlights on the materials. I was kind of disappointed to see that the third piece reads a little flat compared to the other two. Great design though and looking forward to further updates!

Thanks for all the support guys, really It gives me motivation to do more and to do better.
However, I'm still a bit unhappy with the way things are turning out. I need to be taking my drawing to the next level, and right now it still feels very amateurish. I really, really need to learn to incorporate backgrounds into my work, and rely less on the lineart. Look for something different next time.
illustratorwayne: everyone told me to tone down the highlights so i took it back. At least there's someone who liked it!

Long time no post Anyways, been practicing lately by doing some fanart. Just some simple pinup style character illustrations. I'm getting a bit more comfortable with my rendering as well. First one is Motoko Kusanagi from Ghost in the Shell. Second one is Morrigan from Darkstalkers. I'm quite happy with the way this one turned out. Let me know what you think! Thanks for looking .

The anatomy on the pieces of the first page look much better than these. you would gain alot if you stepped down a notch and nail those anatomy and proportion issues. Rendering wise you can handle yourself very well. But there's just something uncomfortable with Morrigan's torso and abdomen looking over extended, and according to her pose, her left glute is too far down. Her left arm also seems to rotate the other way at the elbow.
I can't criticize on the face, it looks very good.
Great works, keep posting!

You have a great attitude, I think you will go far
I like the hair in the Motoko piece. My critiques are that the highlights are too white and round in shape. Try observing highlights and see what shapes they make.
Keep it up! Not many people in this world have the character strength to accept critiques as you have done.
