    hey grüß dich

    srry das ich in deutsch schreibe aber english kann ich kaum.
    ähm aller anfang ist schwer man merckt das du noch nicht so viel gefühl für die menschliche anatomy hast ich würde dir empfehlen das du dir einige bücher von bridgman besorgst bei amazon die sind nicht so teuer und ich finde sie sehr gut.

    das ist alles was ich dazu sagen kann und mach weiter so das ist das wichtigste.

    Hey....your faces don't look like Golems face at all..

    The 'Justice' artwork is my favourite. You might think I'm mad...but I like the face the most of this image. It has a calm feel to it. Like she knows what it good and what is not. You nailed it totally As for the rest. The props she is carrying looks good. I like how you're able to show it's made from some kind of metal. Good job on that. Although there are things I like on this particular piece, it need some work too. For instance the proportions on her body seems a little off. Her body above her waist is too long which makes her legs look pretty short. One thing I also miss, and I know it's hard to achieve..., is volume. She looks far to skinny to be able to walk and carry those props. I added a small paint over.

    Your background looks bad because nothing is happening. It's just the same being repeated all over again and leading into nothingness. It sure is a good exercise in light and shadow if you do a background like this. But it doesn't add much to the character. There a great sense of depth but I tend to look to the vanishing point rather than your character.

    I think it would have been better to look at the character first and think where she would be. Now she is in an empty room. Does that room say or had anything to do with justice? You think about that for a bit. A character tends to look stronger if it in shown on an empty background. That way the viewer has to focus on the character rather than look around it and see what is going on.

    Don't get me wrong. If you are really drawing only three months you are improving greatly. I'm just trying to help you along the way.

    Hehe I ment his as well, but I don't know how to write his name.

    See how a character on an empty background forced you to look at him. This one is actually really good drawn. The only flaw I can detect by looking at it for a short period of time is his left arm. There is something awkward the way it's bent up. It looks like it's broken. I know it's a skeleton in cloth (mummy xD) but it just doesn't feel right. Also, take a second look at his hand doing the fire-thingy. It's hard to read where his fingers are and it's adding another awkward feeling to the arm. I think it's the hand that is influencing the twist of the arm that makes it look awkward. Try do define the fingers a bit better.

    Well done and nice colour scheme.

    hey!

    I agree with Lostlimeturtle. The mummy looks good! Good concept and all, but the hand needs to be fixed, search up some good hand poses and draw!

    Anyway keep up the good work! wanna see more from you.

    I like the way you did the metal in the last one. Also the concept is really nice and I love her boots (even though you perhaps could consider about making her feet a bit bigger).

    And about that belly, I just think that the belts aren't crossing each other in the middle of the belly but more like in the right side of her. Also the buckle isn't in the middle. I think it would be perhaps more like this.

    Hmm.. And practicing is also a good thing to do. And I think it's more useful if you use references. For example those are quite good. Just remember to read the stock rules. http://faestock.deviantart.com/gallery/
