This is absolutely lovely! I think the proportions are right, but the leg with the stocking still on could be bigger, and moved up a little bit...maybe having the knee face forward more...... i dunno. its freaking beautiful either way. <3 <3 <3

Thought I'd try a little line with hands since they're supposed to be difficult to draw.

Luh_Cah_123 @ 2010-08-08 13:19:35     
Nice lines :D

jcnorn @ 2010-08-08 17:05:26     
Wow! You really captured all of the lines! The lines on the thumb seem to go a bit too far up the side though, either that or my own thumb is just weird XD
I really like it!

Person @ 2010-08-10 13:38:00     
to make it look more natural, I would move the line defining the wrist up more, because as it is, it seems broken to me x.x

Also, I noted the placement of the lines on the thumb too. I think if you changed the nail so it shows less on our side, it would automatically make it seem more natural ^^

Other than that, this is REALLY good. I'm gonna say its a womans hand?

mishka @ 2010-11-20 17:25:24     
Been eyeing this drawing on the main page and cannot but comment: that looks pretty darn painful. The swelling hasn't set in yet I'd guess. On the whole, excellent job with the linework.

k. i'm done with it now. i worked a lot on it to make up for how crappy my last picture was.

anyway it's a study on the female form :)

Darik @ 2008-11-18 21:24:29     
that's really well done. Looks just like a real person from my perspective. I like how you shined the necklace too.

SilveR ShadoW @ 2008-11-19 05:33:46     
Nice. It's a hard perspective to draw. The face looks a bit stretched on the left though (the right side of her face). Maybe something to pay attention to next time. :)

weisen1 @ 2008-11-19 10:47:10     
Very nice, I like her mouth.
The nose might be a bit too angled for the angle of her pose though, do you have a ref?

MirrePirreParon @ 2008-11-21 06:28:10     
really nice image, I love the green colours. Though her hair looks really scetchy, the strains tend to look a little too pixelated. A tip is to not set the opacity on 50 on watercolour (I guess you used watercolour of the hair?) set it to 45 or 40, then it wont turn out to pixelated :)

Africa @ 2008-11-24 17:20:25     
This is a very beautiful picture. The shading is luch and the angle and subject matter are gorgeous. The nose does look off and the face somewhat stretched or skewed, but overall this is an ace oekaki!

cordat @ 2008-11-28 22:14:50     
wow. i can't beleive so many awesome people commented my picture :).
i see what you all mean about the the angle of the face and nose. i had a bit of trouble lining it up corectly. as for the hair i was sorta going for that look to make it stick out a bit. but i guess it isn't that fitting with the overall softness. i got a lot of great tips that i will be sure to use in the next picture

blueapple @ 2010-08-08 19:14:54     
I like the position she's in and the shading! Lovely!

I wanted to do something nice and found this wonderful reference with both interesting lightning and pose. So I just HAD to do it in oekaki.

Cloudy Crystals @ 2008-09-28 14:50:59     
That's an amazingly interesting pose and lighting - drew me in from the front page. One comment is that her left thigh looks a bit awkward - I think that part of it is that it's contrasted a bit overmuch in such a way as to make it look kind of flattened, and part of is that it's not as blended as it could be.

Otherwise, amazing job on a challenging post. This is now one of my favourite study pictures. <3

kerrplunk @ 2008-10-01 03:18:52     
! my gosh. though i do dislike looking at naked pictures (what would my parents say?!), this is too beautiful to not look at it.. <3<3<3

Jackalpup @ 2008-10-05 04:19:09     
that's beautiful! you did such a good job! the hair and shading are amazing! the cloth is great! i really like the peice you picked out, it looks quite difficult to draw. kudos!

GeminiRyoko @ 2008-10-05 12:42:48     
I love this, the shading is just stunning, and the pose is so ridiculously good. It looks like something you would see on Top Model.

ShiningGolden @ 2008-10-11 13:31:59     
Oooh, I adore this! You're absolutely right about the pose and lighting, it makes for a really dynamic picture. Her proportions look good, and the shading is excellent - I love those luscious deep shadows.

weisen1 @ 2008-10-16 18:40:41     
I wonder how I missed commenting on this.
I love the way you played with the shadows, and the diffused light looks great (especially on her coughbreastcough)

rune @ 2008-10-24 16:01:02     
Very striking.
A pose like this is incredibly difficult to draw without something looking "wrong".
What you've done here is truly fantastic.

cindaa @ 2008-11-09 23:07:10     
wow really nice on getting the foreshortening right on her leg. i like the lighting and how you shaded this. :) looks great, keep up the good work!

theblackcentaurus @ 2008-11-12 21:28:18     
Ohh... that's absolutely superb! Fantastic lighting!

sushiISgood @ 2008-11-22 20:30:12     
Absolutely amazing! You captured the model perfectly. :D

snotling @ 2008-11-23 14:17:08     
wow, thats really good :D
I looked through your pictures here in the Study room and i must say that you have improved tremendously. Theres still a bit that could be tweaked for this to be perfect (like the face, shoulder and the toes), but its still really good :)

spectatrix @ 2009-02-20 22:07:41     
Lovely picture and very well reproduced. I like your subtle colouring, great work :)

Darksphere @ 2009-05-10 09:40:04     
Very nice picture. I wish i could make pictures like this. :D @ 2009-07-30 15:14:13     
I really love this. Your use of shading is amazing. The face looks fantastic too.

Cyann @ 2009-08-26 14:41:48

LedHead @ 2009-09-15 01:51:25

LuNaTica_├▒era @ 2009-11-23 01:00:34     
Me encanta, this is very good...

Plarix @ 2010-05-11 20:35:43     
This is extremely beautiful. I aspire to draw as well. This has all too unbelievably believable realism. I love it.

Leunah @ 2010-05-24 18:10:47     
This is an amazing figure study. I hope I can understand anatomy this way someday.

eliasvegeta @ 2010-06-10 03:57:44     
wow I really like the skin. I do agree that maybe a retouch for the face is in order. maybe its just the eye and jawline...

Tenkaru @ 2010-07-11 02:02:47     
Awesome! Very Cirque du Solei ish!

weisen1 @ 2010-08-02 13:28:13     
Gorgeous anatomy - I agree that the posing and lighting is amazing.
Only thing would be the angle of the eye, like previously mentioned, but otherwise, spot on.

blueapple @ 2010-08-08 19:13:59     
So pretty! I love the shape of the woman and how she's upsidedown! Beautiful!!!! How delicate the touches and shading.

minoto @ 2011-07-28 05:13:50     
totally amazing. i really like how you can see her toe through the material at the very top. detail like that draws me in immediately. i also dig the colors you used on her body! the shading creates a really nice depth and substance of her body

Practicing my hands and faces in this one, I know the style is a little different, but I hope you all like it. C&C appreciated.

spectatrix @ 2009-02-20 22:00:55     
Interesting style, I like the colourfulness. Credit to my density, I couldn't find the face till I realised he was wearing a hat <_<
It would be better to use a reference for the hand, the thumb looks too long and the little finger is a bit too floppy. The face is a bit small to crit on but seems to be in proportion. Keep going ^^

That is a delicious study of muscles, and the way you've rearranged the composition is delightful.

I love Bruce Lee great job.

ShiningGolden @ 2008-05-23 23:12:33     
Great work on those muscles! The raised arm looks a little weird, and is thinner than the lowered arm... but it's like that in the ref too ;) The shading is gorgeous, and the dragon is a nice touch.

I think I have recovered from hyper-venthilating now. I could never draw anything... none the less muscles... none the less men... none the less dragons... I could not draw ANYTHING anywhere near half this amazing. You have always been in my top five favorite artists on here... but now you just ran straight up to the top. I love you. (Eh-hem) I... I... I mean I love your work and envy you. I am NOT a lesbian.

male torsos... they're impossible D:

here's the reffie:

EDIT: I followed ShiningGolden's advice and moved up the image (to fill up the black space) and added some pants while doing it (not the best pants I've done but I guess it'll be fine)

(Edited on May 19, 2008, 3:34 am)

ShiningGolden @ 2008-05-17 03:58:18     
No, not impossible ;) I like the anatomy and shading on this one, and the way you've incorporated in some green and yellow. I do find the composition troubling though... why cut off the head and arms and leave black space in the upper part of the canvas?

MirrePirreParon @ 2008-05-17 11:17:52     
hmm you are right, it's a waste of space, I wished I could crop that away D:

Yeah you did the veins really nicely! I also like the way you did the jeans a lot, not sure why... they add something interesting to the pic =D and of course the background is great! simple yet still beautiful. great job on this

MirrePirreParon @ 2008-02-03 12:34:23

but one thing that bothers me is that the jeans looks unfinished. But except that, it's gorgeous!

That's amazingly done
I'm especially liking her hand by her head and the back of her foot

Africa @ 2007-12-13 10:37:27     
This is a really good piece of work! The greyscale is good, the anatomy and proportions re excellent....and the wrinkles in the fabric are great, although they look slightly unfinished, but they do the job. Really lovely work.

vantii @ 2008-01-07 00:29:29     
I really love all of this and I can't believe I have a critique. Hopefully you don't mind... The area wher she is grabbing her foot, I think the fingers could use more dark definition there, and her eyes bother me for some reason... they seem kind of dead. :( But I love everything else, the pose and the fabric was done so well and the feet and breasts. Great job.

ShiningGolden @ 2008-01-10 00:19:19     
Thanks for all of the supportive comments =D I appreciate your constructive crit, vantii, and I agree with you about her eyes... not sure how to go about fixing them, though, without moving away from realism...?

inspired by a scene from some movie I don't know the title of... you will get a lollipop if you figure it out ;D

weisen1 @ 2007-11-23 10:26:23     
I.. have no idea XDD;;
It still looks very lovely though
The lines in her back might be a bit sharp though, the muscles tend to look softer
And her hips (if it's a girl) look a tad small, they should be about the width of the shoulder or wider
I like the overall feel of this picture though, It all looks so soft and touchable, like something out of a silverscreen movie

bcfire @ 2007-12-02 05:15:14     
Was it "As Good as it Gets" ? Where she's getting out of the tub and the gay artist tells her to hold that pose. (I think that was As Good as it Gets....)

MirrePirreParon @ 2007-12-02 12:05:17     
bcfire: yes I think it's that movie! :D

ShiningGolden @ 2007-12-10 16:08:00     
I love the dramatic lighting, the contrast helps to give it a lovely dreamlike quality. My favorite parts is the way her head is turned into her arm.

zengmar @ 2008-07-12 01:03:25     
It has a very good sensual feeling and the lighting is great. But from where the viewer's eye is there her hips/legs should be bigger.

Cristine @ 2009-07-03 21:09:26     
Even though her hips don`t meet her shoulder`s width, the top half is beautiful. Goodjob.

I like the angle.

its gorgeuos!=)the only thing that hurts is the head, it seems a bit separated
but colours, shapes and bg are awesome=))

this really caught my eye! Love the skincolors, tattoos and the bg is nice as well!

That's quite a interesting pic. The figures aren't interested in each others, they just live with their own thoughts.

Ooh, very neat! I like how you managed to get the details of anatomy right while still making your figures stylized

Omg! The wings on the back! That's like exactly what I wanted to do as well! ><!

I love this style, and the colors are done so well, and the background is awesome.

very nice take on anatomy.
The background is intense as well. @ 2009-07-30 15:24:31     
The background is really cute. I really love the foot.
The head and arms of the figure facing the front is a bit wonky though.
