New Watercolors

Queen Asuka

Recommended Posts

[color=hotpink][size=1]Alright, these are pretty new. One of them is the Libra part of my Astrological set and the other is just some random sorceress that I was inspired to draw after watching hours of "Merlin" on the Sci-Fi channel a few weeks ago. Please, tell me what you think!

'Tis the Libra. It's supposed to be balance. One side of the picture didn't scan all the way, though.

And here's the sorceress. Pretty, no?[/color][/size]

[color=firebrick] Like 'em a lot. :toothy: I've never done much with watercolor so I can't say much, but I really like the colors you used for the bottom girl's hair. ^_^ Very soft-looking and shiny. Her dress looks pretty and feminine, reminds me of Arwen every time I look at it, lol. Your main problem that I can see is the shaping of the limbs, such as legs and hands. *shrugs* No biggie, though.[/color]

Mmmmm...Watercolours are hard things to paint anime with, ne? I always screwed it up. Then I decided to use my acryllic (sp) paints from art. I never turned back.
Heh...I'm a libran. Not that I believe in star signs. But, it's very pretty. I like her hair...A while back, I was obsessed with drawing characters with b/w hair. Good job there. The sleeves of her dress are well done too. Arms (at shoulders) could be a little thicker. Grey scarf draped round shoulders is nice...personally, I'd give it a little more depth. The main bit of the dress...well, it's okay. The way it splits open is a little random...If you don't know what I mean, don't worry, its hard to explain. I wouldve added a few stress lines in the dress, but it's not my picture. I take it's supposed to be a heavy fabric. The boots? Well, I'm not sure what colour I wouldve chosen. But considering the circumstances, it looks ok. At least theyre not Fuschia. That'd look a little wierd. Or rainbow. Or yellow. :) The fact that it was balanced did strike me quite quickly. Good conveyance of message there. Is she holding anything in her hands? Hmmm. That reminds me...I did do a starsign pic a couple of years ago...It wasn't very good. It's still lying asround somewhere on my comp, under the title of "the somewhat decapitated gemini twins" I realised their faces were off centre, so I tried to fix it using microsoft paint. Bad idea. Anyway, next picture.
I love the hair, the facial expression is good, placement is not bad. The neck is rather long and thin, although I have been accused of drawing pudgy necks before. I love the dress, I love the design,It looks great! She has a very long torso. I'dve accentuated the boobs a little, so that they'd have a little more effect on the shaping of the dress. She looks a little flat-chested, despite the "V". It's probably to do with the collar. The arm holding the staff is fine, it's shaped quite nicely, though, I'd make the top half a little more substantial. I'm only really worried about the fingers. Be careful! I'm going to quote this from art attack, on the disney channel. Yes, I know it's a childrens program, and No, I don't know what I was doing watching it. Heres the quote. "When you draw a hand, don't draw a hand, draw a plate of sausages." Don't laugh, cause the narrator guy actually knows what he is talking about. Draw a large circle for the palm: O, and separate the fingers each into three small ovals, like this (except longer, and more streched): ooo
Shush, I know it doesn't look like a finger. Angle them however you want, and then flesh them in.Remember...Sausages. Anyway, thats all I have to say...which was quite a lot. Have fun drawing, and dont take any of my criticism too seriously...I'm mean :)

[font=Verdana][size=1][color=darkred]They're both gorgeous ! The Libra one feels [i]very[/i] balanced. I love how you did her dress, particularly how it crosses over her waist. Spot on brilliant *bows*

The sorceress is wonderful, you've done great with the ruffles on the dress. It just screams medieval and magic ^__^

The coloration are splendid on [b]both[/b] images. All together Lovely ^_^[/color][/size][/font]
