Commission for :iconkyoukisumeragi:

Another elf :lol: this is where I start using a lot more blue, and in this one I decided to try the popular blue + purple combo, which is killer

I really love her outfit here, it has a sort of arabesque feel or something, like shes about to do a belly dance :P

Another thing youll notice is Im gonna start doing multiple light sources a lot more from now on, always trying to have something glow and reflect the color on the characters skin etc, instead of just plain ambient light (now it feels really boring to me)

Amazing use of color here! Who knew blue and purple could look so. . . . . the atmosphere feels kind of like it's still daytime but all the windows are shut. I don't know, . . .I get weird interpretations but I like how she is just cast in a beautiful light. It brings out her beauty from a combination of colors and the colors hilight and amplify her face. The beautiful lights are pretty in that dark atmosphere. What a gentle face, she must have a lot on her mind. Pretty outfit, I like elf clothing. And nice tattooo. The sparkly butterflies and flowers also help it glow, nice job!

Nice facial features and mysterious-looking eyes. Cute tatoos - the classic sun, birds and mountain. XD

I'll suggest you to reference to a base on the use of light and shadow on the skin.
- The right shoulder and arm didn't go really well with the rest of her body.
- The shadow on her neck somehow deluded me to think I was looking at her back.

This is very pretty But I would like to give you a few tips if that's okay :)
I'm sure you are going for the anime fantasy style in this so Ill try to keep that in mind.
However I think you could have moved the lips up and made her nose less pointy. If you want a more feminine look that is. Sharp lines define male features, while smooth and round are more feminine in anime or manga style. I believe that the coloring is superb however and you have really done a great job and can see the effort you put into it. Make sure you make the mouth bigger. The opening of the mouth doesn't necessarily stop at the end of her upper lip. instead extend the lip crease just a bit from both sides.Slant the eyes less next time because she has a very tired look in her eye. make sure to to make the eye that is facing to the left less wide. Otherwise it would appear that they are facing one direction while the rest of the face is tilted. also with anatomy the eyelid crease is closer to the lash line than depicted but its a mistake I make often so I understand. I do truly love this picture though. And you have done an Expert job and I hope you go on to do more great works. :)

Pretty coloring, but her head doesn't seem to be quite the right shape - it seems very high in the back, and her right arm is apparently amputated. The way the flesh curves in right above the sleeve seems quite awkward, and as you can't see the rest of her arm despite the fabric seeming to be sheer, and there is no form to the fabric, it only falls loose, makes it seem as though there is nothing in the sleeve.

Her ears also appear to be coming out of her cheekbones, I would perhaps move them a little higher up, unless that's the anatomy of your elves.

Well in that case, there is something I do notice.
While you do a phenomenal job on lighting and coloring, your anatomies come off as really flat and cartoony.
Maybe that's just your style, but that's something that's still highly noticeable.

You might be surprised soon then

But yeah, I like the simple feminine anatomy of anime... I dont want to draw those marvel comics girls with muscles everywhere, it doesnt fit my style at all

Internet-Cancer Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
ooh.

the Marvell style can be fun, you know. I don't like Marvel comics. Actually, that's putting it lightly. I think they're moronic pieces of wasted American art and disrespected characters at the hands of writers who think boobs and violence = good story-telling.

All I'm saying is that there could be a little more definition in the dimensions. Like the chest area and the face. When people do that weird perspective thing with boobs, it makes the chest look lop-sided.

Yep that will come with time... In fact Im really happy about my latest drawings exactly because Ive finally figured out how to properly shade the face, especially the nose area which is the hardest...

Where before my faces used to look really flat because if you shade the wrong place it completely ruins the expression, so I just left it empty instead

Anyway... I need to do my redrawing meme thingy soon, then people might actually notice what Im talking about

Noses are hard, for some reason. They should be easy. They're basically rounded pyramid surfaces, but they're always hard...

Actually I was more thinking about the placement and shape of the eyes. They're flat, and there isn't any change in their shape when you change the angle of the head. But I think that's just a part of the manga style. I tend to blend the American and Japanese methods as best I can.

SoraNamae Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Because of the nostrils :P and that there are many different shapes of noses, they probably differ more than any other body part...

I never really payed attention to eye angles, because from what Ive seen (both drawings and photography) their shape barely changes until you are very close to profile view, which I havent done in ages... Between frontal and 3/4 there is almost no difference, they just get shorter

But yeah, like you said anime has very flat faces in general, and I dont like pure realism either, which is why I mentioned Sakimi... she has pretty much the perfect middle ground between both, and why I am aiming for it :nod:
