Just knocked this one up quickly as a practise piece for my new wacom. Ended up using the mouse again mostly ..I'm so weak willed.... :cry:
see the uncensored version here

Hey, how do you know how my girlfriend looks ?????
Looks pretty good, like the colours, what wacom do you use?

You ah.... "Knocked this one up..." Interesting choice of words. D

The coloring looks nice...but the linework quality is annoying...the outlines really lower the quality of your work...they are too thick and not anti-aliased which hurts in the eyes...
Great coloring + bad lines = mediocre
I kind of disagree respectfully. This illustration is intended in the comic book style, and lines do tend to be hard-edged if they are inked...the boldness is just a preference/style, and to each his own. He also did mention that he knocked this out pretty quickly, and that he used a mouse for most of it.Originally Posted by Fozzybar
All a matter of taste is all.
I agree with Fozzybear that the outlines are too thick especially on her face -it makes the whole piece look very "heavy". But what really hurts MY eyes is the top of her head - the hair don't look too good - i know it's supposed to be comic style and stuff but they're completly messed up and you can only tell that this is hair because they're on her head - you should work some more on them. Apart from that - they're in the wrong place. Looks kinda like her skull is chopped off a bit
The other hairdo on the other hand looks terrific Whole pice is quite nice
I agree, too outlined--I noticed something else too; on the uncensored version the pubic hair extends above the bikini tan-line (not good for the beach).

hahaJust knocked this one up quickly
Anyways, I like the gesture here, but she's so cartoony it seems like she would look better with a more severe, clean color job. Looks pretty good though.

hm, the coloring between her nose and eyebrows bugs me. i think it should be more smoothe. and the her "kitty" is weird looking, but acceptable. otherwise, i like it.
I really like the airbrushed look of her tan. Specially the tan lines. Nice touch!
