Fix me..... by Soreiya Fix me..... by Soreiya
Well my art is a bit more creative when I draw on paper, but the anatomy needs some work.. Is there anyone who might be willing to redline for me? I would have to fix the mistakes in photoshop, but I think it would be worth it in the end.

I was not sure what section to put this in.

I was thinking of moving some art from my scraps account into this account. I feel bad having them there since I have some like for them. I find that thought kinda weird...

i think the anatomy is pretty good:D the pose is interesting since he/she is crouching with what looks like a dragon's hind legs. good use of imagination!

I think the problem with the pose is more about the other leg. It looks oddly positioned. The anatomy itself is a bit off, but I have no way o fix traditional art.

It's cool to see some pencil drawings from you. It's as contemplative as your computer work.

Uh, I don't think you can trust me to redline this. But if you want to learn anatomy you should check out Bridgeman's books. There are other anatomy books but that is the one I'm trying to learn from ATM. A lot of artists I like have studied Bridgeman.

One thing I learned in art college is that being afraid of messing up the original really gets in your way. Don't be afraid to erase, it will look probably look better if you alter the original than if you try to change it in photoshop. If you buy good enough paper you can erase forever without damaging the paper. There is always the possibility that you might mess up the drawing when you change it but the things you learn from your mistakes add a lot to your next drawing. In general you learn more from taking risks than you learn from being cautious, and even though risks are frustrating in the short run it tends to work in the long run.

Some people are telling you it's fine the way it is, but even the best art can be improved. I think art should constantly be improved, and never remain the same.

There's no reason to feel bad about it this process of constant editing though. You're never going to get to the point where you look at your art and think it's perfect, so there's no reason to beat yourself up over it. Imperfection is part of the process, and that's a good thing because if you didn't notice any flaws your skills would never improve.

One last thing: I feel like a hypocrite when I say this because I don't practice what I preach at all. It's not easy for me to revise when I feel like I am doing everything wrong, and I often feel like I am doing everything wrong. But, I've looked at artists who are better than me and they are generally much less wishy-washy about drawing than I am, so I think that lack of wishy-washy is a good thing to strive for.

She has a very lovely design. I really like the armor and the look on her face. Good work with the shading as well. Nice work. :)

to me the torso looks a tad bit long, legs could be a little longer as well as the arms. i find drawing on paper easier because you get the overall view of the drawing and how to make thing connect and how big or small parts have to be as compared to the computer.

i think its lovely, the thigh is a little off. I could ink it and fix it if you like. I'm pretty busy so i dunno when it'd get done.

Don't quite know what you mean by redline, coz im lame like that.

I don't think it need fixing. I think it looks fine the way it is.

altering it would maybe ruin it, so keep it that way, it look more mystical.

The detail really does a lot to hide any mistakes... the only real "problem" I see with the tail is it looks like her hips are at an angle going upwards away from the viewer, but her tail is still straight-on, instead of bumping a little away.
The arm seems a little short, using human proportions, but it's hard to judge a non-human being on stuff like that. If she's meant to be quasi-quadrupedal, then her arm is much too short, but is probably okay for a full bipedal dragon-creature.
Otherwise, she's really cute, you have a good eye for detail.

Wow! You are right the arm is short. LOL That must have happened since I drew it before the body... I really should learn to presketch or something. I'm just afraid to have lines all over the picture that I cant erase. I need to learn more about trad art.

If someone would show me how to fix the mistakes by drawing on the picture. I'm sure I could then redo the entire body on the computer.

The tail is just a little low on the hips, I think...and the forearms look a little short. (I like that long claw though. nice looking)

but the sheer detail is amazing. I'm still not used to seeing it even though you do it on everything ^^

Sorry I can't redline~ :( I'm not that good yet, haha~
But this is so pretty already! I'm sure just a few tiny touches would make it amazing. :3 And I really like your hand-drawn stuff, too. : ) (<--is still a sucker for traditional media)
But anyway~ hope to see this done~ so pretty~ :3

It's really not bad, the head is just way too big...not to sure how to redline that, I could just resize it though.

:iconsoreiya:
Soreiya Featured By Owner Oct 1, 2007
it's not really that big it's more that the armor on her head pushes her hair up and out in odd directions it does make the head look a lot bigger

I see that too, but, proportionally the head is still too big, tall lets say.
As a rule of thumb legs are four heads tall, two for the top, two the bottom, the torso is 2-3 heads long, arms go to halfway down the legs.
The rest of the body looks proportional to me, but the head is a bit too big, shrinking it is probably your best bet.

Her head isn't that big it's more the armor that you thought was her head. It pushes her hair up and makes the head look bigger than it really is.

The legs are to small though I know that for sure.
