this was inspired by the elves in record of lodoss war
pretty!!!! at first I thought I was the only one who drew anime-like stuff....now i know it's not the case....
you obviously are new here so let me give you some tips about them basics
1 you missspelled "girl" in the thread title. I know it, you know it, everyone knows it!
2 the BG! WTF is this gradient doing there? if you don't know what to put into the back of your pic just use a plain colour! NO GRADIENT!
3 your anatomy is messed up of course, the anime style can't hide it
4 the shadeing is very flat, looks like you just mixed black to the original colour
the boots aren't shaded at all
5 foreshortening works in most of the parts but feet aren't your strenght obviously
what you got to do in order to become better:
lay down Photoshop and pick up a pencil
learn something about values and colour theorie
visit a life drawing class or/and buy a book about anatomy to study human forms
friends Sketchbooks:Dile_, Stine
my flickr go there if you want to see my photography stuff
<mildly sarcastic remark that seems a little cutting at first read, but contains wisdom and is really rather funny>
Ilaekae: "I'm sick and tired of "purists" who dictate their own anal preoccupations to everybody else as the word of gods."
Everything said above. Also, learn to colour inside the lines and use thicker lines when you draw.
and cut the anime....please
but not being to harsh on you i think u got alot of potential, just keep drawing and dont be satisfied to early and ul be doing great in the future^^i really beleave so^^keep it up an post more
