Hello, I'm still quite new around here and I haven't posted much art yet. I'm a little nervous about posting this since I've heard manga influenced art is frowned upon. I'm trying to learn other things but at the moment this is what I have and this seems like the best place to get some helpful feedback. I hope people can be tolerant enough to give me some general critique on the technical aspects such as colours, lighting and technique. I'm trying to learn more solid art theory rather than winging it as I go along but I'm afraid there might be old habits which are hard to break. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!
I'm just starting to learn how to use custom brushes in Photoshop. I think this particular pic could need some more texture but I wasn't sure what brushes to use. I'm quite dependent on my lineart... it's how I've always done it but in the future I'd like to try some more free painting.
