    yeah wck, I was referring to the top one's pose being static, the beanbag lady was an attempt at something a bit more natural. I was worried about her shoulders, I might mess with them a bit more later, thanks.

    I would, but then I would have to painstakingly color and render it and still have the final result of an ugly lady; BUT IN FULL COLOR!

    EDIT: Also I didn't save it as a PSD because I am dumb like that.

    EDIT 2: Another drawrin'.

    Just my luck. The thing I spend 15 minutes on and think everyone will hate gets more compliments than the thing I worked for 2 hours on.

    But thanks. I still appreciate the compliment.

    For some reason when I look at her, I get the impression she would be even more ugly if she smiled, somehow. Luckily I also get the impression that she is not about to smile any time soon.

    Caveat: I never really paint any kind of landscapes. That said, I'm having a really hard time with this one, because I can't get the ground to look good in either the fore or background. Any pointers?

    It doesn't look like the moonlight is mixing with the shadows created by the light in the trees. Might help a bit, but I'm not even at novice level when it comes to painting so can't be sure.

    The bottom of the trees also need some reflected light from the ground and mystery light in the trees, but that's so far out of my league that I won't even try.

    I've seen what a full moon does to the world when there's no artificial light. Everything's painted blue, even the shadows. Very nice to look at.

    Really awesome! She looks 'BADass'. I think her closest foot should be a tad bit bigger. Its looking a little small at the moment.
    also, i dont like her nose. it doesnt fit her frame of face.

    all up nice design and colours.

    Thanks! I am terrible with feet at different angles other than profile. I'll probably work on fixing it a little later, and I kind of agree with the nose myself..Thanks for the pointers (:

    (night scene with forest)

    One thing, the lights cast on the ground on the left by the mystery light are very parallel - that would place the light quite a bit to the right of the image (out of view), and conflicts with the apparent place between the right trees

    If it's intended to be like a fighting stance, you probably need to match the legs and waist to the positions of his arms.

    @Mustang: I think you're running into a lot of problems as a result of trying to work out the drawing's structure and the painting at the same time, which is leading to an overemphasis on details, and too little emphasis on the light. For example, in trying to work out the folds of cloth, you've made each fold extremely contrasty and very much its own sort of object, rather than being subservient to the broader, overall forms- the block of the torso, the cylinders that make up the arms, etc.

    It's also leading to you forgetting things like the broad brim of the hat casting a shadow on the coat, the coat casting a shadow on the feet.

    I also suspect that while you're trying to design this character, you're trying to figure out the local colors- 'oh this is white, this is blue', so you stick those colors in- but when you think about the light and where it's coming form, those colors would be stuck into shadow or effected far more by the light's color than the local color, so it ends up looking out of place, and unrealistic.

    I did a quick paintover here, but look at what I did with it- it looks more realistic and solid, but how I got there was stripping away and simplifying detail, not adding it. To be sure, in a more finished illustration, there would be more detail, but being able to figure out this broad, overall read is what will make the subsequent additional details hold up.

    @Kochi: Well, uh, strap in, I guess.

    @MM: The major problem, in my view, isn't the ground, it's the sky. Biggest major point is that at night (or really, any time of day other than noon on a clear day), it can't really be assumed that clouds are going to be white. Clouds have a density to them that blocks light, so most clouds you see at night will appear black when viewed from the ground, excepting very thin areas of cloud where the moonlight can penetrate that density. So in order to appear believable, even when given a stylized treatment, the clouds should reflect this idea- right now, the clouds appear to glow unnaturally, and are therefore far more conspicuous in the composition than they should be.

    Moving beyond that, I'd bring up your color choices- given, any night scene is going to require a bit of imagination because otherwise the viewer would wonder why they're looking at a picture that's 90% black, but I'm detailing my somewhat subjective choices to make a point.

    In your original, the major colors are defined by white, a deep purple, and black. While this can work, it does tend to make the colors a little flatter, a little more drawing-like than paint-like, if you get my meaning. What I've done is try to introduce more of a color temperature shift- I've used white very sparingly, and replaced most of the previous highlights with a warmer, cyanish color, and used that to gradient into the cooler deeper purple/blue in the darks. This makes for a softer, more interesting color transition, as well as holding back whites for where it can be really used to make a bold, contrasty statement, ie: the moon. I also used this with the light in the forest- rather than just be a yellow light, having it transition to another color creates more contrast within the light, making the source more obvious, and creating a greater sense of depth. The result is that it appears to be a bolder statement, even though that technically, the value of the light is actually dimmer than in the original.

    Thanks Bacon, I was secretly hoping you'd give me a paintover.

    Makes way more sense to simplify the shape to get the light and colours down before hitting the details.

    Your color scheme is beautiful. I love the composition as well, even though I feel it would benefit from being a little wider set. But I make all of my stuff way to square and boring, so I'm sure this way works better.

    Does your wife realize how talented you are? Also, I keep forgetting I shared a hostel with you! I was severely impressed with your skills then and even more so now. Keep up the awesome work, Wass-san!
