My scrible

Slux,
I wouldnt be too disappointed with your result.. The only things about this drawing one could really say is that maybe the wrinkle in the skin on her left shouldner and her right side dont look quite right and that her butt seems to be sitting up off the pedestal just a bit. Other than that, it looks quite solid,

Slux - as well as what Seraph said, you could try softening the muscle structure around her shoulder a little, I think that might help.

Hi thanks for crits .. I know there is a lot of flaws ... frankly I was quite tired (lazy) to work on that more so especially rendering isn't very good ... I may try to rework it a bit but its unlikely but I will try it draw again in Photoshop so hopefuly it will be better

hehe I may try it (we will see tomorrow )... well but its not easy to soften it in pencil ... its easy to darken it but not that easy to actually erase something what was already rendered ... that also reason why my Photoshop pieces are usualy better because its really easy to fix all flaws but I'am just beginner so there still may be some hope for me
btw thanks for your concern I appreciate it

Diogo_bc - hehe mine are always the same with face and hands left to last
My only suggestion would be that perhaps her right breast should be a tiny bit higher up. Looking good though

Slux,

Ooohhh...really nice so far. There are definitely problems, but I'm sure you can see what they are...it's a matter of the medium, so I look forward to seeing your Photoshop work as well! I hope that someday Wacom tablets will simulate the feel of paper, or somehow simulate the feeling of traditionally done work ~ we'll have to get those Wacom scientists working!

One thing I would note is the placement of the ear with respect to the side of her head. Look closely at the photograph and try to determine more accurately its position. It may be impossible to change traditionally, but digitally it should be no problem.

diogo_bc,

Welcome to the forum! Thank you for posting your work. Like I talked about with Queensoul's work, I would try retracing your drawing (using tracing paper or Photoshop) and SIMPLIFYING the linework. Post your new drawing and we'll critique that work as well!

ryusen,

Really nice painterly feel and use of subdued tonal hues. This definitely has the feel of a traditional painting, done on a burnt sienna background and gradually brought to the fore.

One thing I would work on would be the edges. Some edges, like those around the bottom of her buttocks, should be softer. There are edges around the hands that so far feel a bit too crisp, and I would try to soften those as well. I would really play up the contrast between edge hardness and softness to complement your great use of tonality in the painting ~ one place where you can especially exploit this is the shadow of cast on her left buttock, which should be a relatively hard shadow. You can contrast this with a softer edge of the lower part of her buttock which will increase visual interest.

And, though I know you're not finished, her left shoulder is getting a bit biggish. You might want to slim it down to match the size of her right.

Overall, once you refine the edges of this piece, it should be really great. Thanks for posting!

dbclemons,

hahaha!!! No time limits, no worries.

Ok, so here is my small WIP ~ my motto: when in doubt, blur. Be gentle, people.

theseraphimabove,

Lol, the blur tool is indeed a crutch, but I felt I should at least post something since everyone else has and in its present state my painting is rather less than perfect .

Thanks for the compliment, and I hope my blur tool crutch will gradually fall away and I can run free like Forrest Gump!
