Well, Depends If you drew it by yourself i may comment but if you traced thee pic I can't say much


How does looking at large amounts of imagery then using them as reference suit you? This is definitely not a trace I will tell you that. :-)


Nothing much dear, But to someone who checked your drawings and this one is not really exactly what you draw but in case you used Refs for that pic and that's how you done it then congratulations, Perfect.

Thanks, sorry if came off a bit strong. and yes this is one of my first full body drawings with photoshop, so yes I have done full body art although I could never get it to look how I wanted it to. (too many eraser marks >_>;;)

It's cool. I see it has nothing wrong and you done so perfect I bet you can't find someone in here draw a bit as you done with that. I'm not an anime artist but I've watched some so don't look down on me and that's pic? Awesome, good job (as realistic artist I don't know if thee anime artists have something else to say about it) but really, keep it up ^ ^

Well, Photoshop just crashed on me during the coloring process, so this won't be finished for another couple of hours.

aww that sucks. that's the worst feeling. especially because it only happens when you're on a roll and super focused and you forget to save often enough.

hmmm... usually i add highlights to the hair but i'm not sure about with lighter hair colors. i don't usually use those. but adding a little shine to the skin might not be a bad idea. usually that's the step after shading for me.

good job though. i do like how elaborate her outfit is. mine tend to be a bit plain :/

its another one of those things that really just boils down to personal taste. as a rule I add highlights to anything that is either shiny or has moister . so like skin or hair would but clothes (unless they're wet or like leather or metal) wouldn't. it's really about adding lighter colors to the opposite end of where the shade is. It's still a work in progress but I'll show you something I'm working on right now as an example.



now if you notice in the hair i use four different colors. that's kinda normal for me, but 3 wold work just fine. then on the face and left leg I added what you could say is just a reflection of light (I guess that's really all highlights are anyway) just like you see in the eyes.

Hello guys, I have this web site that is SO perfect matching colours in case anyone here need it, it's not a shame to look for some matching colours i guess Here it is: http://kuler.adobe.com/#themes/search?term=Hair You can search for anything, When you click on that link, it's for hair colours Really so good and since you guys use PS for colouring I say, use this site, so good.

Oh and, more tips for after you finish your drawing. In case no one ever heard of Topaz clean or Topaz Vivacity they are AWESOME for making your drawing more shine and cleaning it. I use that to my all my drawings, they make them softer and looks better. It's even make your line art thicker. In case anyone is interested you can ask me more about it, good luck guys

Okay here's a sketch of what I'm working on as of now. I've yet to add her lower half since I'm still deciding on what it should look like, any tips would be nice.

Definitely going for something different with this one.

Really good, thee drawing on thee right i mean. Thee one on thee left I say if you draw more hair in thee eyebrow would be a bit better because you're giving us a closer look to her/his face. Don't make it TOO much just, a biiiiiiit
