WHY AM I ONLY SEEING THIS NOW? MEGAN THIS IS ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL. The colouring/shading is just amazing, and the only flaw is that, like Astrid said (professional stalker, at your service.) her body seems sort of flat. Other than that, simply wonderful.
I look at it, regardless ofthe fandom I'd like to see more of this painting stuff. The eyes look especially nice. I think I see the issue with the mouth? See how there seems to be an invisible line from the middle of the eyes, through the bridge of the nose, and to the middle of the mouth? Your line seems to swoop too quickly towards the neck and to the character's left. It should reach the chin, but hits the cheek instead. Does that make sense? But otherwise, this looks like te start of a great technique for you.
Stalker. No, I'm kidding. It's fun, but a lot of work. I wanna get used to this style, though. And you mean the vertical guideline on the head? And yes, it makes perfect sense. The mouth was purposely veered towards the cheek, but I see that it doesn't work with the style. I wasn't gonna redo that mouth a third time. They are so hard, regardless of the simplicity. -.- And thank you for the mini critique, I appreciate it.
It's so pretty<3 I love the colouring so much! I can see you tried hard on it.
Hmm, but if I may: I think it looks a bit odd that you firstly drew the body, and then adjusted the colours. Or that's what it looks like at least. You see, the body is pretty "flat", like you can see no feathers coming out of it. This would look perfectly fine if it was a cartoon with flat colours, but since it isn't, it looks a tad weird... Also the mouth looks like it's placed a bit too high.
But other than that, I adore it! Especially the head has such gorgeous colours! ♥ I love how you shaded the eyes, and it's a very nice touch that you added Baby Tooth in her hands. c: <3
I did. And I see your point, I'll work on that in future works. I kinda got lazy around there because I wanted to finish it last night, rushed it, collapsed the layers, and went to bed. I did the BG this morning. I saw that but it looked odder if it was placed lower. I appreciate the small critique, it's nice to know what I can improve on.
Thank you! I came up with the colours myself, since I don't trust picking colours out of animated movie characters. And her hands were kinda empty so I whipped up Baby Tooth. I really like Baby Tooth.
I know that feeling. Everyone wants to comment on the crappy MS Paint comics about ponies being traumatized by the Internet, but no one cares about the hours put into my other work that I actually give a damn about. It's the curse of the pony artist, I tell you.
