Helloooo everybody !!! :wavey:

(hello LILDRAGON if u come by here :bowdown: )

so it's a long time now i last posted here !

I did this litle drawing yesterday for relaxing and changing a bit from the 3d. As ever with me it's certainly out of proportions and anatomicaly odd (it's sure :cry: )... Anyway i donno if i'll be able to do that right one day ... sigh

Anyway, everything has been done in photoshop

Of course if you have coments , crits , or whatever you think , feel free please to write !!

The sharp edges on the tattoos look out of place with the soft light of the actual figure. The background as well has very rich, high-contrast texture to it, which also contrasts with the subject matter. I think you need at least a little bit of connection between the two... perhaps making parts of the bg more soft or adding an intermediate object would help.

I like the wrinkles on the skin.

Thanx everybody for your support and crits !! :D

Loganx3d, you right about the BG, in fact i shouldn't have add one, the pic was great without it. As often i tought something was missing, and did this .... . . the problem is it's composed of flowers photos parts and of course it's sharper and more precise than my drawing ... . .then you know the rest of the story :p

Will retry without it !

Again thx guys for your help !! :thumbsup:

bye bye :wavey:

I like it! :thumbsup:

Contrary to what others have said I like the sharp edges on the tattoos and detailed background....reminds me of DAVE MCKEAN's work. :)

Her nipples don't look like they are pointing in the right direction though...her left nipple needs to go up and to the right???

the brow bone and nipples are off, AWESOME rendering though!!!

Hello back everybody,

Hey thanks a lot for the the "MCkeans touch" !!! i wish i could have the 10th of the talent this artist has ! anyway about the nipples ur absolutely right lol it's off .... . in fact the problem with my way of drawing is that i'm starting something watching at forms emerging then trying to focus something and finaly shading everything. I never have an idea of what drawing will be at the end that's crazy i know but that's the way it is ; so as i'm working in the fog, most of the times the anatomical things are out of place or disproportionned ... .. and so on, i really should try to draw with a precise idea of what i'll get but so far, cannot do that yet. For me drawing ,(at the moment) is more of a feeling and umm pleasure of shading than a pleasure of making forms :p

Thanks again for your coments everybody ! :)

and talk to you soon !!
