Niila on a stump by Dream_Fire


MY first submitted work. this is Niila...or as close to her as i can draw her, whats in my head never makes it to paper. i have tryed to draw her several times but this is the best one so far and the one i am showing, since im new to this forgive me if its not good, i will get better i promise and i dont mind tips or constructive criticism. Niila is one of many character i have made and eventually want to draw but i stared with her and need to nail down how to draw people (anime/Manga style). one foot is not detailed with toes because i couldn't get em right at that angle. any way too much here she is Niila...on a tree stump...

Ryu_WarriorYou comment on my pics, I comment on your pics!

This is actually not bad for someone who is trying to draw a character for the first time. You should see my pictures when I started drawing! The best thing really is to keep on drawing, it may take many crumpled papers to do this, but like the previous comment said, "Practice makes perfect."

If you want me to constructively criticize your picture, I would say that if you're going to draw a female, I suggest drawing less muscle. If you're intending to make a very active female character, create tone instead of creating larger limbs. It creates imbalance to the character face if you're making them cute. I understand that sometimes you have to look at yourself to create the pose you want, but you don't have a female build (I certainly don't either!) Find pictures of actual female models and study their poses; where you find them is totally up to you. Your body proportions are okay, but the pose is a bit stiff. But that's to be expected for someone who just started drawing.

Watching someone draw on the spot is another good way to get yourself familiar with some of the techniques for drawing. Don't get discouraged if you think you can't draw like them, although sometimes it happens. I have those kinds of episodes every now and then. Every person has their own style of drawing and you are just merely sinking in information for yourself so you can create your own style of art. Most of us didn't get to where we're at right now if it we didn't see someone else do it. If they can do it, so can you!

Actually, this is an excuse to ask if I can use this character to draw a giftpic for you, as promised from before. But I don't want to just draw it without your OK, it's your character!

Dream_Fireohhh wow thank you very much for the help ^.^  ya seeing as im a guy i dont have a girls figure hah, and yes i did add too much muscle, i have improved a bit but its hard drawing from no reference, i have a LOT of characters with Bios and everything i have made up and sometimes the image i see in my head is not always very clear. and yes you can use Niila in a gifpic! :D

Dream_Firethanks i have 4 other drawing of her but this one is the best so i submitted it..and they all had the same pose so i decided i needed to work on them a bit more, it was also a test on my hands drawing ability as her hands are generally hidden behind her in my other drawings.
