This is my first Oekaki in at least 2 years ^^;;; I'm really out of practise. Anyway this is a really bad drawing of Tifa Lockheart from Final Fantasy VII. I had no inspiration at all, so I decided to draw Tifa, because she is my all time FF character! The pose is really lame too ><;;;

I think I need practise. The background is meant to be clouds.

I hope this belongs in here. Take about 45mins off the timer. C&C welcome.
blumeaniandglove 2006/1/16 - 17:17:13
I love those eyes, and the hairstyle is nice too.

Hope to see your art around here more :D
agent-pocky 2006/1/16 - 23:34:27
I love the eyes and hair as well. The shading is wonderful, and I love the way the edges of her eyes are kind of blurred.
mika-kun 2006/1/17 - 13:59:51
good lord, you certainly have been away awhile....even I can't remember you, but still it's good to see you back, I hope you stick around a bit longer this time....:)
insomniacmg 2006/1/22 - 6:38:50
I'll be honest, I think the expression borders on comical and seems fake to me. I understand your exagerating proportions to achieve an anime look but I feel the overall shape of the face is a bit too sharp and un-natural. I'm unsure what she is trying to convey but to me it just looks a bit like she was hit on the back of the head, and maybe mentally weak. I'm sorry to leave a kinda pessimistic sounding comment, and I think you posses enough natural ability to hone yourself into something more, or else I wouldn't have commented. I guess next time try and capture the character in a more relaxed, believable expression, and work on your facial structure a bit.
bananarana 2006/1/23 - 13:44:13
insomniacmg, I think there could have been a nicer way of expressing your crits on this piece of work. It is obvious that you do not mean to be so biting and caustic, but when I first read your comment I couldn't help but feel you were attempting to insult the artist. Perhaps a less "pessimistic" (as you said) way of wording your C & C would be ideal in the future. But nevertheless, I do agree with you on some things. darkshines, to me, it seems that her head is too forward/to our right. This can easily be remedied by moving her head to our left (her right), or scootching her body to our right (her left) so her head is more "on top" of her neck instead of off to the side (I hope that made sense). The pose is cute and suits Tifa's optimistic attitude well. Keep drawing; I look forward to seeing how you improve. ^^
senobdec 2006/1/24 - 8:33:34
Crit: see Mika and Lorelai's work. Then sob like I do. Seriously, everyone has trouble with proportions and anatomy - that's why "anime" was created, it's just a simplified and anatomically incorrect style.

---Lines, though I am guilty also of jaggedy lineart, it isn't as noticeable unless you cel-shade as you did here. The framing is a bit odd too but hey, it's the default frame and it's hard to use effectively. Good luck and I hope to see you drawing here again.

I might finish this later c+c welcomed and any cool ideas I could add in...I was thinking cloudes...or cool swirly things...but...yeah....
mika-kun 2006/1/17 - 14:1:55
Wow! now that's a lot of hair for one person, I like this as it is without swirlies, I think if you add any you should keep them subtle to avoid over complicating the picture.....
senobdec 2006/1/24 - 8:36:48
Tastes like raspberry mud road. Nice blush :D.

Ahah, I'm oekakiing too much... Oh well! had fun doing this, trouble with bg as usual, though. C&C really helpful ^_^
mitsu 2006/1/13 - 18:18:55
Bah, one can never oekaki too much. I like your choice of color for the skin; it complements her expression very well... hmm, yes, regal, stern, and immovable as a statue. :]
mika-kun 2006/1/17 - 14:12:47
Excellent job, she would make a cool vampire with that skin tone, the face is extremely good, I could only suggest darkening the shadows to add to the depth which would really make her stand out...:)

mika-kun 2006/1/12 - 15:27:13

hyperion 2006/1/11 - 0:20:46

blumeaniandglove 2006/1/11 - 1:49:20

mitsu 2006/1/11 - 16:17:44
Texturific! Dot shading on ze body = far out. And, man, I really like the glowing vein-things. :}
happywaterbottle 2006/1/11 - 23:27:20

senobdec 2006/2/9 - 2:43:11
The amount of texture you throw into things is amazing.. I dig the pointilism lighting.
snoopywar 2006/2/21 - 21:43:51
Yeah... I'm a bit late on commenting, but better late than never. :D
I like the perspective. This just feels like an entire mood was captured. Especially the colors and blending.
Its magnificent. :)
xhewasnt--x 2006/4/6 - 18:47:57
I love your style. And all the detail you put in is amazing. I especially like the little thing smiling up at the top. Looks like an elf :)
mrgrt 2006/5/17 - 21:4:55

donteatyellowsnow 2006/5/30 - 19:38:46

hey there~!! Ugh...i haven't been here for a long time, so here's this peacock lady and her peacock--hehehe!! Well happy new year :D
kaira 2006/1/7 - 22:21:17

The feathers are absolutely fabulous. And I adore the peacock's expression--terribly haughty and vain--perfect for such a beautiful bird. And... *trails off uttering endless praises of the peacock*
mika-kun 2006/1/8 - 15:7:56
....and just where do you think you've been young lady!?
Hehehe good to see you back, a happy new year to you too!
mitsu 2006/1/8 - 15:44:59
Oo I love peacocks... and those jewelry designs. Gib. :D
lorelai 2006/1/9 - 21:46:10
Hahah what is gib, mitsu? XD
p_b 2006/1/29 - 15:33:6

You risk tears if you let yourself be tamed.
agent-pocky 2006/1/6 - 20:29:35
Ooh! The eyelashes look really great, and I love all the textures you used. The tear is really pretty-looking as well. (but I think it should be coming from the other side.)
agent-pocky 2006/1/6 - 20:32:47
Sorry for posting again, but I just realized you didn't ask for any crit. Sorry. DX
p_b 2006/1/8 - 4:57:20
I realy like the textures used as well :) It gives a very original feel to the otherwise cliche "crying eye" pic. I'm also very impressed by how the eyelashes are shaped like real ones >_<

For crits, the only thing i can think of is that most people have thinner/shorter/less lower lashes than upper upper lashes. They also tend to clump together more on the bottom.
bananarana 2006/1/10 - 23:6:28
AWESOME BOOK. AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME. WONDERFUL, SPECTACULAR, STUPENDOUS, AND YES, I REALIZE I'M TYPING IN CAPS BUT THAT JUST SHOWS HOW PASSIONATE I AM ABOUT THIS. I like the crosshatching you did to color and shade; didnt' notice it at first until I took a looong look. Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful~ And the image in the pupil fits so well with your comment.

agent-pocky 2006/1/5 - 17:20:48
I'm not used to doing pictures like this. :p I think this is my first lineless one; I'm proud of it. I had trouble fixing some of the fuzzy parts and I meant for the dress to have some more colours in it, but...
XD (constructive crit.s are always welcome)
mika-kun 2006/1/8 - 15:2:52
....and so you should be proud of it, it is extremely good.....and like it I do!

lathiel 2006/1/5 - 1:13:57
Wow I worked really hard on this one and it still managed to look like crap. Well this is me and my siste I'm the one on the left (blonde). I guess I just drew this to show how different we are. Man I think I have carpul tunnel.....FINE...THIS IS IT...IM GETTING A TABLET! :)
mika-kun 2006/1/5 - 12:16:41
Ah c'mon now give yourself some credit, it is far from crap...
I must say you two certainly are different, twins you are not!
agent-pocky 2006/1/5 - 17:35:7
I love all the little details you put in each of you that make them both look very different. I love the hair and eyes, and that some of it is outlined and some isn't- that really caught my eye. (So did the backround. XD)
