    Emi's Digital Art

    Hi there, everyone. Thought I would start a sketchbook here since I'm always looking for advice and criticism and the places I normally post in give me next to nothing when it comes to help. Any feedback is greatly appreciated. Thank you!

    [EDIT] New stuff on last page.

    Holy cow! It's that guy from the Legend of Dragoon! I never finished that game. But I thought it was pretty revolutionary for the time and didn't get much credit. I like where you're going and I think as time passes your style will continue to develop along with it. Just watch out for stylizing 'too' much.

    Thank you very much for the comment! I've been replaying old PSX games so that's all I've been drawing lately. What do you mean "stylizing too much?" Could you give me an example so I can understand better?

    Cool style. I like your characters' expressions and gestures.

    I believe that you understand shape really well--I don't see any anatomical errors/inconsistencies when I look at the sketchier pieces. But in the more rendered paintings, like the Rei Ayanami one, the forms and textures are a little off. Her face, for example, is kind of hollow and clay-like, while the suit is colored a little muddy.

    Studying skin tones and muscle/bone structure could help out, I think.

    Thank you for the suggestions! Yeah, I haven't managed to make skin look like SKIN, have I? That is a very good point and I will focus more on that in the future. When you say "muddy" do you mean its blended strangely? Or it's too messy? Or the colors are not bright enough?

    I just found a bunch of old sketches that I had planned things for and I guess I never finished any of them. I'm tempted to go in and see what I can do with them. Maybe I can use the Barbra Gordon one as a skin study!

    Ya know, I really like how you draw, mainly because of the style you use. Its not so much cartooning or anime, its kind of a blend, It always flips me out, but of coarse it is your drawings so you can name it anything you want too. A lot of sharp emotions, gives its own animated touch to it.

    And I think by what PerinGallite means is losing touch with anatomy, you don't want to loose too much sight of how a person should look when correctly drawn, and not just have it by "My Style". But it isn't uncommon, a lot of cartoonists are said to have this problem, it happens when you simplify anatomy. But hey, what you do with your pencil really is up to you.

    Thank you very much. Yeah, when I first started drawing when I was a kid, I hate to admit that I learned from anime. Even years and years later I can't seem to completely get rid of it. Once I started looking at comic books and graphic novels that really helped me get a bit away from it.

    Also, thank you for clearing that up for me. I definitely don't want to lose anatomy in the process of being stylized.

    Hey but don't stop considering your options, maybe you want to keep a sleek stylized look. Think how many cartoonists out there (Walt Disney for one) kept little ties to true anatomy in their art. As long as you can draw what it looks like your job is done, that is what I think.

    Do i see some Sky Doll in there?....Some nice poses and interesting characters. I feel like some of the time your noses are a little pointy, and some of the faces are tending towards being a little generic-might be nice to push the design/experiment with different facial types. Also, try to get some more fluid line-work, it would really help, especially as a lot of your characters are quite elegant, to have one smooth line, rahter than a few scratchier lines where your trying to get the feel of the curve, ...you should go for broke and try to get it first time

    Yes. I think the shadows in the skin, especially, should be more saturated and the brushstrokes a little cleaner. I believe that the specularity of the skintones is too dull--kind of clay-like. Maybe making areas around the cheek bones, forehead, nose, and chin a little lighter?

    I compared a photograph with one of you images, if you don't mind, to show you what I mean about the saturation.

    Notice how as the skin tone becomes darker, it also becomes more saturated. In the color picker window, the selector moves in a diagonal direction.


    In this piece, your values become darker but the color remains at almost the same saturation. The selector moves in a vertical direction.

    Of course, more saturated skin shadows does not always occur. But a lot of situations I guess it's safe to assume so.

    I hope that makes sense. Also, just a personal preference, but I think the noses in your faces are sometimes too long. And it just popped into my head that some of your characters remind me of Woody from Toy Story haha.

    Wow! Thank you so much! This helps a lot! I actually started working on a picture to just focus on skin and these will be great tips to keep in mind.

    . . . lol dammit now I'm staring at all the noses.

    Also, Daveneale. You're right, I started to notice that last night. About the faces getting general. Thank you for pointing it out! Also with the lines, I was always told by instructors that my lines were too scratchy and I didn't use line width enough. I guess I just forgot about it. I'll need to do some line studies at some point.

    Very nice lines, and after YihyoungLi posted you seem to have started down a good path of colours as well - it's a wonderful field to further wallow in, and I'm really looking forward to see how you further expand in the future, especially given this nice start (the lines where already good before, but we can always improve).

    good luck, and have a wonderful journey - and mayhap I'll cross your path once more, I certainly hope so.

    I think all your poses and angles are super dynamic and awesome! It's also nice to see someone with a great sense of anatomy :D
