Fresh start

Post by Ekko » Mon Sep 05, 2005 2:21 am

Hello.

As you might have noticed, I've put Simpsonic art on hiatus for the time being and have worked more towards improving my Shoujo manga style. Of course, I'm still new to this and have to focus on my baby steps; however, this is not going to be a temporary thing. Don't expect another Simpson picture for a long time. I hope this doesn't anger you.

To start off, here's a picture of a female head. I'm not to pleased with it, but it's a step in the right direction.

That's pretty good. I can see a little mistake on the right eye but, overall, firm lineart, well proportioned, nice reflections in the eyes. Pretty good. :)
Our choicest plans have fallen through, our airiest castles tumbled over, because of lines we neatly drew and later neatly stumbled over.

Straight lines and cute anime don't mix too much... Curve, curve, smoothe, smoothe! THe mouth especially, the shape is ok, but try not to make it look like something out of south park :o
The ears are too high up, too.

This the only stuff i'd change. I like the eyes, maybe some stronger shading in the middle for the pupil, and those pigtails are kyoote. Keep it up!
