This is Namine from kh2 and COM. Does This belong in the polished room? or is it good RIGHt here? Well I hope so! She has no feet for a reason. I accidentally made them circles and.... oh well comment please! BTW if you think this is very good... remember I'm only 10 hooray for me? :P Comment!
keyblademaster 2006/5/17 - 19:51:13
I'm sorry I was supposed to put this in the Drawing Room! I don't know how it wound up here! I hate my mouse grr.
eeyoresonlyfrnd 2006/5/19 - 16:41:41
I like the shading on her skin =)
shadrad 2006/5/19 - 17:38:45
When I saw this on the front page, my first thought was: hey, that looks like Namine! I was relieved when I saw that she was indeed Namine. XD

I like the face...^-^

Without pessimism, there would be no optimism.
Did most of it, let it sit for a couple weeks, finished the rest quickly. I get bored of pictures halfway through D:
mitsu 2006/5/17 - 14:40:59
Twisted! You have a very distinct coloring style which I adore. Major <3 for the fire and rainbow!
phil 2006/5/17 - 16:30:11
mitsu beat me to it so ditto the fire and rainbow
all though i think this pic be funnie if the rainbow coming out the other end !
isoueax 2006/5/17 - 18:20:39
I love the fire and ribcage, and how the rainbow looks like paint. Your style is wonderful!
ryoanna 2006/5/18 - 19:7:55

mogily 2006/6/9 - 18:27:43

erp. an 'kaki i am actually proud of, and dear god i think it might be my best! took a page outta taley-chans's book, hope you don't mind dear, but i adore you so! <3 this is kinda supposed to be my furc character, kaoke, though her colors change far too often but are always usually colorful and bright. :3 i would really appreciate crits on shading/anatomy/anything. :D
cinder303 2006/5/12 - 19:23:37
I love the background! The colours are so purty.. <3
lavalizard 2006/5/13 - 11:53:42
Cute character:-). I like her eyes, and the the heart balloon.
tayley-chan 2006/5/13 - 12:51:35
My goodness, I would NEVER mind being credited for even marginal inspiration ^_^ <3

Love the colors in this, and those horns are adorable ^_^
spoonalshmee 2006/5/13 - 15:28:49
that is cuuuttee!
xdarkx 2006/5/13 - 16:10:11
cuuuuuuute! ^^ nice colores
mika-kun 2006/5/15 - 10:28:28
Hmmmm C+C-ing this would mean pointing out the bits we don't like.....so you've not left us much to go on really.....;)
p_b 2006/5/17 - 20:22:20
I love the colors and the drawing style. Your line art is to die for ^_^ Two big crits though; make the clothing stick out from the skin a little with the line art. It adds SO much to any picture, and it's a really quick fix. And try not to shade and highlight so randomly; keep your light source more consistent. Like, the (our) right boob is shadded all along the outside for reasons i don't quite understand. Also, where it buttons up, the other side of the line should be shadded because it's underneith the other piece of clothing. The (our) left side of her body is shadded all the way up except for the purple strip of clothing. Ect. I don't normally crit this much on pictures but you have SO much potential and all you need to do are easy fix things :)

'jeneen?' because it looks vaguely like my friend jeneen (who, yes, spells her name in an unusual way.)
i am excited because we are going to art school across the country next year, which gives me a roomate who is not homophobic for suuure (she has two mommies)!
vancouver, here we come! zoom zoom!
snoopywar 2006/5/10 - 20:30:54
Art school? Thats awesome! =D
Love the face here. Cause its kind of realistic, and kind of not.
senobdec 2006/5/11 - 21:59:39
Sweet. The skin rocks.
mika-kun 2006/5/15 - 10:25:49
I took the liberty of checking out your links as I was interested in seeing your work in a non-oekaki medium, I'm not much into poems but the artwork rocks....good to see you using art as an expression of yourself rather than simply doing 'nice' pictures...;)
mitsu 2006/5/16 - 12:31:37
Really adore the head... those eyes are truly disturbing, the skin texture is sweet, and the orange lips are quite striking. 8) I might just run off with that lime, too!

This is a Self Portrait!:) Why? Cuz Im cool to draw..:) [link] < ref pic of me!:)

Whatcha think?:)
senobdec 2006/5/8 - 0:17:11
Very nicely done. I think you should stop using dodge to lighten. Try just using watercolor on the large white bits, and use dodge for the VERY bright, with little gradient areas (like the tip of the nose in this case).
The right hand and wrist looks nice, and you captured the face shape pretty well - however, in the picture (if you're REALLY trying to copy) your head is tilted. Looks awesome (the hollow of the wrist and the palm looks really nice for some reason).
kira 2006/5/8 - 7:36:0
yea.. i kinda c ouldnt get the head to tilt. maybe if i had my tablet it would work alot better. thanx for the idea with the watercolor tool. i used it actually for the whole thing. but the shading on the arm was givin my hell so i gave up.:)
mika-kun 2006/5/8 - 11:24:41
The head/face and hand/arm are excellent.....you're definately a future realist artist for sure........but!....looks like you had given up by the other arm/chest area.....which I can sympathise with as long as you don't turn it into a trait....'cos then we'll never get to see something spectacular...;P
snoopywar 2006/5/8 - 17:26:0
That is one great nose!
And very nicely done lips. =)
senobdec 2006/5/8 - 17:55:56
Agreed with Mika. I think I was talking about watercolor2 (the one that blends). Yeah, doing that slight tilt to the head is kinda hard - looking forward to your next piece :D.
mitsu 2006/5/16 - 12:34:43
Yiii, the head is superdelicious, as mentioned. It's slightly blurry but shows excellent attention to detail; that eye in shadow, for instance... mmmhmmmgood. Props for not just filling up the shadow under the hat with black, 'cause it's so much more intriguing this way. :3 Wish the rest was as resolved, though, eh?

Every couple million years I get the urge to exist :p

I call the boy Pony. He is a far cheaper mode of transportation than a car and gets pretty good mileage all things considered ^_^
blumeaniandglove 2006/5/1 - 11:33:15
seems like a resonable deal to me... but WAIT!!

does he do sound effects?
ryoanna 2006/5/1 - 16:41:37
lol awesome job! luv it:-)
monique 2006/5/1 - 17:44:43

snoopywar 2006/5/7 - 18:53:27
I wanna eat your shoes. :B
But besides that, the emotes rock. 3
mika-kun 2006/5/8 - 11:28:51
Do they do the same model in female?
syzygy 2006/5/9 - 22:31:12
Tayley, you rock my socks.

And to answer Mika-kun, no. Hell no.
mmbaroque 2006/5/10 - 12:58:3

The emotes are sooo adorable. So fabulous!
tayley-chan 2006/5/13 - 12:50:40
Silly syzygy... of COURSE they do the model in female too. We're an equal oprotunity employer don'tcha know ^_~
jakusama 2006/5/15 - 19:13:30

monique 2006/4/29 - 21:17:4

blumeaniandglove 2006/4/30 - 15:22:8
it's like a safari tour...
"and on your left, we have the herd of stampeding rhinos. magnificent, aren't they?"

haha, awesome job :D
ryoanna 2006/4/30 - 15:40:27

spoonalshmee 2006/4/30 - 16:14:19

lorelai 2006/5/3 - 10:48:26
This is so awesome and cute!!
mika-kun 2006/5/8 - 11:30:16

She seemed somehow, just a part of the scenery.

Please c and c!

happywaterbottle 2006/4/29 - 9:23:1
woah that's totally gorgeous o_o it's so different than your usual style! I had to check twice to make sure you really did this :P the face is very nice, especially the eyes and lips and I love how you did the hand. very very well done, one of your best!!
kougra_girl 2006/4/30 - 19:42:3
very nice! i like the face and teh hair X3
lorelai 2006/5/3 - 10:46:59
This is really beautiful. I love how her eyes are so different!
senobdec 2006/5/5 - 15:23:23
Usually, shading the skin and clothes in light grays when everything else is colored is a bad idea... I like the contrasting eyes though/
It feels like there's not much... light.... few shadows visible.
Her upper arm is a bit short, and if the shading were darkened just a little as well would look very nice (the shaping is very natural).
Face and hair could use more details and smaller clumpings/locks (something everyone has trouble with, including me).
Nice pose, and a nicely done perspective. Looking forward to the next one.
mika-kun 2006/5/8 - 11:44:44
Your faces are improving with each pic, this one lacks shading but certainly shows realistic work is within your grasp, I do like the way the greyness of the figure pulls the eye up to the face as well....:)
