    slight update....just started working on a piece of Street Fighter fanart...some crits/help on the composition and pose (ie. the wonky legs) would be greatly appreciated

    PS:...should i even bother to scan and update with some old sketches i did in the past few months? they're pretty shitty and i don't think anyone will care at this stage

    Hey man nice start to the new page....thumbs up...
    crits- hmm It doesnt seem like they are standing on something by the way their feet have been positioned ...The bent girl..even though by the overall look of the pose it seems that the weight is very much on her right leg but the way the leg is doesnt day so... I am not gonna say much about proportions those are your choices...

    One main thing in all this is dynamics...these are the street fighters...,try to capture , teh action , the violence, the adventure.... I think the poses can be more dynamic...like they are just gonna launch in action....... not just cool poses.....

    I have attached the pic with some crits

    Hope I helped..
    Keep drawing..you are improving like a madman

    Well good luck there but remember you can always learn something. I mean it's good to be critical about a certain level of course but if the situation does suck and you can't get out of it - get out of it what you can and take things to another level. No sense of complaining while doing your assignments I think. Before and after, sure definitely be super critical of how you spend your educational time.

    Off course I don't know the situation at all but even if it's only design or whatever just do all your thinking visually on paper. One black marker and fineliner are great tools to make thumbnails or schemes of abstract ideas, organisation of elements or composition studies, or just to depict certain desired and undesired qualities. Thinking visually will help you a lot with both design/art exercises and will keep you drawing obviously.

    Good luck man.

    Yay update. Nice work.
    I've also done a little paint over, just because it's easier for us to talk with pictures.

    Firstly, as bhanu mentioned, poses could be more dynamic. Chun Li can easily be sorted out with more twist on the torso.
    Other than there, just some small things I've noted in the paint over. I don't know enough about anything else to make alterations.

    Calves are too thick, I think.

    thanks so much you guys for all the critique and support...i'm honestly touched...will definitely drop by your sb's soon....can't wait to be inspired

    __________________________________________________
    sorry to bhanu and daniel....i decided it would be best if i started again entirely rather than beat a (semi)dead horse....i was actually planning on abandoning the sketch after i drew in chun-li....but out of boredom, decided to add cammy in just to test composition....i didn't think about the the two poses would fit together very well and it shows (not being grounded etc...)

    also i've been very reluctant with the idea of doing an action (well sorta anyway) related piece for this contest. since the game already has more than enough of that...i really wanted to do something else with the characters instead.

    hence my new idea: its Sakura on a bus after doing some serious fighting (her gloves will be bloody) i think she's an really interesting character in this case because she's someone that really doesn't belong in the world of street fighter in the sense that she's only a school girl, while other girls are txting/ going out with boyfriends...she's busy challenging top fighters around the world. I want to portray her in a setting where it would be normally OK for Sakura the school girl ....but not Sakura the Street Fighter.

    However I also plan to make her confident/strong amongst how the rest of the world reacts to her, as I believe she has a very powerful spirit and firm beliefs to live by.

    all that said......CRITS on the composition please (i really need to fix the angle/perspective of the window at the back...its supposed to be inside a bus...but its sorta flat with the way the window is directly facing in a straight line to the viewer's eyes)...i just began this so this would be a good opportunity to fix the major errors up

    PS: my line quality is so bad

    a bloodied schoolgirl should get some better reactions my man.....
    One thing.might be stupid...but dont use comp or whaterver to draw straight lines right now...they deaden the quickness of sketch

    Oh might do a deal good and search francis vallejos illustration for almost the same situation , it just had people with fly heads.....hmm sorry cant find it for you...my nets too slow.....Just go back a few pages of check out his finally finished thread....
    About the perspective , find it in the depth of field and the rations of the head of the figures, that will give the pic enough perspective

    might wanna make the posture a weaker..shes beaten up and stuf...nice expresion on her face..
    I think you can also put more people in the picture and get more and varied reactions and expressions....
    Hmm dunno...see if you can work it out a little more then we'l talk more ..okay?

    I love the sketch you did with the colour. Very neat contrasting, with the girl in the middle with all the colour and everyone else mostly neutral.

    I can finally crit that piece you showed me on MSN! Sorry it came so late, at least I can help you with your art though. I hope you win the contest!

    With the guy on the right, I think his ear is too high and too small. He seems to be talking about Sakura with that other man, should his hand stand out more? It could help to convey the story more clearly. What are they saying about her? Perhaps his hand should have a different pose. Body language does a lot for impressions.

    I'm loving the background, the colours appeal to me. Maybe you should blur the lines though, just to bring the focus more in the centre. Not that it isn't centred enough, it's great how you contained most of the colours on and around Sakura, that really centers the focus.

    I like how you included your previous drawing in it!

    Little nitpicks:
    I feel that the phone the chick on the left is holding is off, it should be higher and more parallel to the direction she's facing; more in her ear. And how would Sakura's skirt get so torn?

    But enough of tearing your work apart, later man.
