This is quite the piece of work. You need to go back and review some more of the art foundations before you work on rendering man
The anatomy seems to be really off, especially on the head. The perspective is really weird at points and you appear to have too many light sources (I don't know of too many artists that commonly use more than one major light source in their pieces). The pose is also very annoying to read and doesn't have a clear silhouette, causing a bit of confusion when you first look at it
The TL;DR of this is that you really need to work on your foundational skills before you start to rely too much on fancy effects like lens flare and glow. The use of those as a crutch will really hamper your growth as an artist
We obviously disagree, but I can respect your point of view. Just to make it clear though, there's only one light source in the whole picture (top right end of the image to be specific), two minuscule flares (earring and bracelet) and the faded projection of the main lens (bottom left corner) following the natural direction of the only light source already mentioned.
I like the path I'm going through, and luckily I'm pretty proud of my style (it appeals my eye, what can I say), so I really don't think my art will change acording to your perception of "correctiveness" (what I mean by this is that it probably will never be your "cup of tea", and that's just fine).
What can you do? Nothing is bound to be liked by everyone. I had enough time to grow accustomed to that idea, so no problem. As long as one enjoys what he/she's doing themselves, then that's the way to go.
Thanks for your honest, respectful thoughts nevertheless.
the woman's expression looks pretty damn faked though. show some emotion in those brows and you should be fine. her right arm also looks a little detatched from the rest of her body
but other than that, this is great! love the shading, and the amount of shading and variety you're able to show using very few colors.
i love how you're able to completely copy (aka blatantly rip off) Jeff Bandolin's work (johnnyutah) and still pass it off as your own.
i looked at Jeff's portrait submission in the art portal of all the CC playable character portraits, and whaddya know. this is only in the heads, but the shading, the drawing, the expressions are all the same. some are facing the other way, but hey, like that's hard to do.
I don't even know how you got scouted if this is what you call hard work by you.
this is still jeff's work you're passing off as your own, and crediting jeff will not help you. The only thing that is really your art is the bodies, which aren't very good anatomy-wise.
so even though technically this is your art, if you asked some actual artists or random people if they would consider it 'your' art, they would probably agree with me (if they knew the same facts i do)
Lol wtf ? hahah i said jeff drew them, and i just redrew them? i dont really know what your saying now. Your saying its my hard work? wtf? where in the hell did i say that. I said this is FAN ART for CC, and yeah i did "rip off" the menu characters. I fucking said that in my description you dumb ass. Your probably some stupid 15 year old from canada that doesnt know shit. Look man, re-read the damn description. I gave credit to Jeff, and yeah i know i took the menu characters, big whoop, i said i did. You need to read the description you bitch.
but i find that the legs on the girl at the top are too fat, so it throws off the proportion of her body a bit too much for this style. i slightly disagree with hans considering that the glow from the sun is pink, but i think it should be more of a yellowish pink so it matches with the actual color of the song as well.
but i can't say i don't love the coloring and shading of this piece. love your imaginative drawings.
GOT SOMETHIN AGAINST GIRLS WITH FAT CALVES DO YA?!?!?!?
all of your artwork is a big ripoff of flapjack! a pox on you!
it's pretty good but one thing that really ticks me off about it is her hands. they look wierd and oddly shaded (at least compared to the rest of the pic).
also its really good quality art at his face but then once you get further and further down it seems as if the quality starts to degrade a bit.
but allen walker had a sword. or a gigantic claw hand, not a wolverine style hand.
very nice shading i must say.
his arm WAS a sword actually, and in this picture he hasn't taken it off yet. the gigantic claw hand was his first innocence form. This form you see was his crown clown innocence form (before taking his arm off).
It happened around manga 9 ish
i always wondered how you got that 'glow' effect on his face in your display pic. i never thought it was simpley shading!
who woulda thunk it.
my dinner is popping our from this picture.
seriously this isn't very good at all. no textures, no background, simplistic drawing, no shading, etc.
try using all of these things.
this isn't very good.
all you did was draw a bunch of random squiggles and color them in. a toddler could do that.
if you're doing something like this, try adding a bit more detail. even simplicity is complex
