Yay its Inori I love her character so much, sorry ; u ; and she has pink hair too! ashjhdhgefs Anyway, sorry for the "default" pose. I was originally just practicing my cell shading then I took it too seriously. LOL! (Though i still suck in cells shade. Must practice moar > A <) First post of the year!
Better get to sleeping now, its 2am in the morning > A <
Hope you guys like her~ mehehe. Texture from google
This looks like a very good artwork! Mostly I don't really find good anime/manga art here on deviantART but this really catched my eye!
The line-art- Vey clean, thin and not attention seeking. The line-art is also rather free but not that much on the shoulders/ buste. They look rather stiff.
The shading: Very interesting way you made it! The shading looks very great in the face but I think it needs some work on the arms and shoulders, the shading in the hair looks really good too and make the strands of hair look very flexible. But I really miss the shading on the clothes.
Anatomy: Everything looks really good! The eyes are placed well such as the nose and mouth! Most anime art has them placed very awkward but this looks very good! Except the anatomu on the shoulders, they look very stiff and her right shoulder is placed rather weird. :/ The ear looks a little bit off too but that doesn't really bother me. The eyes are really good with pretty details.
The colors: The colors look very harmonious! The color of the shading fits it very well!
Anyways, this is a good drawing but I still have some tips; You are really good at drawing faces but if I were you I would work a little bit on the anatomy or the buste. The shoulders kinda kill the drawing and that's such a pity. Also I shouldn't use such textures in clothing without shading because it looks really flat because of that. :/
Hope I wasn't rude but I just want you to improve and become a great artist!
[Warning] Its very long I'm so sorry, but I thought that I should give this a try.
I really like how you coloured this one, and how it gives off a theme of the cosmos.
The colouring has been done very well, especially the shading on the hair, face, nose and even down to the neck. But unfortunateltly thats where it mostly stops. If we go down to the breasts it gets abit weird. I dont know whether to classify it as a colouring or a drawing fault.
But if you look on the left you have clearly(looks like a "d" but its a cl) drawn the right breast or might I say Boob. But in the middle a line that should of been there simply isnt there. But enough of me being a pervert.
Although ZombieParadise has said that quote "and her right shoulder has been placed rather weird" I'd disagree. I'd say that Inori's left shoulder is the one that LOOKS out of place.
This is due to the part of her left shoulder next to the hair curving down or just straight, whereas if you kept it a straight line going up slightly it would of looked in synced angle wise and posed no problem.
I have to say though, the eyes have been done VERY VERY Well. But I dont know how to add emoticons on here but it would be something like this:<(^~^)> I also love how the synchonization between the coloring of the cosmos in the background and on her clothes, her hair pin and even her hair, alothough its just the stars in it. Furthermore I personally love the ribbons going over her shoulders.
This work must of required alot of layering and coloring work. I think its fantastic. I think you focus on the details very much (keep doing this) but you need to be more aware of the entire thing. I can tell you have been doing this because of the colouring but you also need to looks at other aspects as well such as the shape.
