    Talking Aquarius design and illustration

    I am working on this and I would like any constructive critique: about the pose, the color, background, titties size...anything! This is my 1st post on this forum, this is also the first time I work without any reference(for the pose), and first time I want to "paint" the work entirely
    Thanks!

    Really what you need to do is study the fundamentals of art (anatomy, lighting, perspective, color theory, etc). Eat, sleep and breathe it. And don't avoid using references at this point; it'll assist you in your endeavors. Research and study the underlying skeletal structure and musculature, and how light can effectively convey that information to the audience. Your local library (I hope) and the internet are teeming with free resources. Take advantage of them.

    I'll just point out a few issues in this piece:

    -It seems as though her right arm has one joint too many, where her deltoid is supposed to interlace with the musculature of her upper arm. The line you've drawn there serves no purpose.
    -Though you have the contour of her figure drawn, it looks completely flat. You haven't described the values of the various planes of her body. There is no depth or weight to her.
    -Her rib cage should be more pronounced on the left side of her body, where there is tension in the skin as she bends toward her right. Think of her torso as a jelly bean.
    -With regard to her face, one should avoid using line to define prominent features such as the nose and lips. Two dots for nostrils isn't the equivalent of a nose, for example.
