Ugh, it's been a fucking long time since I've tried to draw anything more than a simple character shot, so I'm really looking for as much help and advice as I can get on this picture I'm working on. It's a mashup of the manga/anime Bleach and Princess Peach from the mario games, of which I have done before
, albeit in a much simpler manner. So:
There's a few things that are sticking out to me already, the shy guy (hollow guy?) in the left background needs to have his gaze altered to be obviously staring at Peach, and maybe be given a more interesting pose. Also, I've drawn the pipes from the wrong perspective, since at Peach's head height we'd be above most of them.
Soo... any suggestions/advice/crits would be super helpful.
Also, I'm wondering if anyone has any advice or useful links for colouring night-time scenes? It's not something I've tackled before, but done right I think it'd make this image look a LOT better.
Oh, and any suggestions of other mario items/buildings/stuff I can place in this image (without it becoming too crowded) would be welcome.
