My very first "really tried" character? Untitl10


This is my very first try, I quit manga a very long while ago, due to the bloody proportions always killing me Sad

Thank god that photoshop has a selection box tool and allows it to be moved and resized, that kind of helped.


I didn't know what I wanted to put after the first set of bangs, so I think I will see it as the experiment if they actually work? To me they look ok, but give your opinions of what you think (I still don't know how they actually hold, don't think it's even possible, but they don't seem to interfere? I guess...)

So yeah, please comment and bash me, I am already used to it Smile What a Face

also comment if anything is off proportions wise, cause that's what I need the most.

Her hair looks good to me. Only suggestions I can offer are that the line for the outer-upper edge of her boobs is a little high, as is the collar bone. Use your own as a reference, feel for it. And you can see a spot that looks like its where you did your resizing, her waist on the left side doesn't quite match up, makes her look sort of, flat? I guess that's the word I'm looking for. Her calves are a bit short for the length of her thigh. Otherwise I do like it quite a bit, well done. Very Happy

I have a lot of trouble with proportion myself so I've been slowly learning to correct those errors through observation.

Proportions are just so demotivational Sad Seriously I can't even draw humans, I have to draw landscapes or something completely unreal just to force myself draw, but thank you for the review!

Start with books about drawing. This kind of pics won't lead you anywhere.

I've never been able to learn art from books. I study people instead. When you are having a conversation with someone just study they way their face moves, or there's arms when they are gesturing, things like that. Don't stare like some kind of creeper, just observe. This method has helped me in a lot of areas.

BRIDGMANS - Complete Guide to Drawing from Life

There are tons of books the main goal of which is to teach you how to draw believable. If you skip them, you'll waste a lot of time figuring out documented things that would make your life easier, while knowing what the hay is perspective, form, proportions, anatomy and how they work is a great push for your artistic skills. Observation is essential for artists, but understanding what you see will speed up things a lot.

Hello there,

I was sitting here trying to explain what I was trying to get across to you... but it made no sense. Soooo....

I hope that kinda explains some stuff and helps out a bit.
Sorry for the misspelling it was late and I did it real quick in PS.

You could also see if you can find any of the art books by Ben Caldwell, they are really simple and REAL helpful. He breaks down stuff and makes it easy to understand, Check out his blog http://purgetheory.blogspot.com/ or his site http://www.actioncartooning.com/
