B-Man: I appreciate your comment. I'm starting to get the feel for expressions a tiny bit more. Back in the past my style has always been just straight line art, very little shading, partly because I didn't know how to render at all. But now I'm getting a bit better at it from studying real photos. I love contrasting light and dark. There has always been a real attraction about that, more of a mysterious feel to the character when I add high levels of dark areas. I don't know, I'm just rambling now. I will be putting your feedback to good use. Your comment was just in time. I'm working on another sketch (surprise, it's another woman!) I'll keep some cleaner lines this time.
Ok, I submit to you the following sketch. Feel free to analyze it, leave me some good constructive crits. As long as it's constructive don't be afraid to just tell me how it is (like Fellah). I'm open to ideas. Later
I had a decent night at work and decided to put part of my down time to this piece. I should have rendered the design on the dress better, but in between calls I had to do the best I could. I work too damn much not enough time to sketch.
