Hey. This is a gift for my Japanese teacher, since she's getting married and going away to Tokyo forever I thought I would do something nice for her.

=.=;;; Though this can hardly qualify as nice, I put a lot of effort into it. u.u;;;
The colouring sucks, yes I know. I didn't know how to do it. And I was being a little lazy. ::sigh::

Maybe I will do another one for her, one that is better. Once I get my own tablet. :3 Hehe. XD

Anywho. Yeah. Thats it. u.u;;;
jellybean 2005/1/28 - 10:19:4
wow, thats gorgeous! i love the colors you chose!! you're definitely improving quickly--this is great! XD
mika-kun 2005/2/9 - 13:26:25
I think it has all the qualifications for being nice, not only is it a great pic, but the sentiment behind it elevates it beyond 'nice', I'm sure she will love it...:)

man i havn't drawn on here for a while...just been busy with skool and crap..lol..well yes this is for my friend randy...he he! c&c if ya want to!
coleslaw 2004/10/23 - 8:20:45
Sure, I'd love to c&c it! :D You know me :D:D

First, the hair. Is his hair shaved below the ears? If not, you should draw some below the ears :O If so, you may find it beneficial to do a picture from an angle so that you can see that his neck and half of his head are shaved. The shading is nice, but it could be a little darker.

The face is pretty good, everything seems to be mostly in the correct place. The nose, however, is at a 3/4 view, and the rest of the picture isn't. Also, his jawbone is very lopsided...one side goes up much, much higher than the other. The ears look like little lumps growing out of his head, partly because of the lack of dark shading to seperate them, and partly because of their shape. If you want to keep the unrealistic feel (like anime or cartoony styled) then just do more of a C shape instead of a ( shape. If you were going for realism, then you should look at the actual shape of the ear. It dips a little from the head at the top, curves up and around, and the curve at the bottom is smaller than the one at the top. His forehead is a little small, which makes it look pretty unrealistic. Actually, the eyes may be a little bit high. Again, the shading here should be darker and there should be more of it.

His neck is pretty long, and the highlight curving clear across it is pretty unrealistic, simply because that would indicate that the thing you're highlighting wraps straight across his neck, or from one shoulder to the opposite corner of his neck. it should be more of a V that connects the dip of the collar bone and the top corners of his neck. Also, the right shoulder is broader and has more of a straight slope than the left one, and it's up a little higher, too. The left ont looks great, the right one is too boxy.

That's pretty much it, just shade darker! I can't emphasize that enough. It will look weird to you at first, but just try it. It will make a big difference in your pictures!

Moved to the Gift Room... as it's a gift X3
maggie_sue 2004/10/24 - 15:56:31
ok, since coleslaw gave you anatomical critiques, I'll help you a bit with correcting them. Ashley, when you watch the animation on someone else's oekaki, you usually see a bunch a scribble lines laid out all over the place before they actually start on linework and coloring. The lines are called line gestures. These gestures allow you to place the features, pose, and movement of your subject matter. When laying out the face, begin by drawing an oval shape and, depending on which direction your subject is facing, draw a verticle line down the oval shape that will go inbetween the eyes and also fall on the nose and the mouth-this is called the axis. Next, draw two horizontal lines that will place the eyes and nose. After you have that layed out, adjust the shape of the jawline by using the axis as a guidline to where the chin will be. Ears, depending again on the direction your subject if facing, will usually line up horizontally with the eyes, and the neck begins at the bottom of the ears. Now you have a face ready to draw on, but first, we must place the rest of the body. This is up to you, but it's helpful to draw circles where the joints will be (shoulders, elbows, knees, etc..) along with this line guesture, you could also start placing the hair and the clothing--this helps you know better where to place folds in clothing. This gesture goes on the bottom layer so you can fade the layer out and draw on the top layer. The guidelines are useful when placing facial features as well as poses and even foreshortening. It may take you longer this way, but you will be happy with the result. Just start with the gesture and build it up to a finished piece, and have fun with it. I believe there are tutorials that further explain what I have given you here, and they also have visuals that make the directions a bit more clear. Keep 'em up, I can't wait to see your next oekaki!
coleslaw 2004/10/24 - 17:28:53
Lol, me and Maggie_sue should team up more often >:D
maggie_sue 2004/10/27 - 13:23:41

embo 2004/11/27 - 19:59:58

jakusama 2004/11/16 - 8:14:27
For some reason I just thought of 'Pearl' from 'The Scartlett Letter' because Pearl's always in red. EVen though she has light hair, her mommy's is black... o.O anyway that was my take... I like it.. its nifty.
syzygy 2004/11/22 - 18:33:37
You know *why* you thought it looked like Pearl? Because this pictures is scary in that evil doll kind of way... and Pearl was evil.
