After reading all comments....
...I guess I had to leave a real one. I don't really understand how people can hate this so damn much, or why they keep returning if they actually hate your work. The best way to make someone get worse is telling him/her "u fucking suck learn 2 draw >:(". It's sad, really....
Now, to the art: I like it, it's not perfect, but I still like it. What I really would like to see is shadows (I know you have some, but it needs more and darker) and better light effects (thinking of the scythe now). The hair looks good, needs a lot of darker lines to give the impression of real hair though. Her left leg should be a little longer, and I think her horns should be slightly smaller. The cloth should be more affected by wind and movement, and have very much shadows to strenghten that feeling. I like the facial structure, kinda chibi feel to it, and the hands are ok. Good work on her breasts, they look nice ;)
I think you should do lineart instead of filter effects for a background, or atleast add a platform she's standing on or something similar instead of having her flying there. And have a darker background, it's the background that's standing out now, not her.
As I've seen on a few responses, you're trying to find your own style? Then I'd suggest you to stop drawing anime and try to be as realistic as possible, then drawing more cartoony after a while. Somewhere between those two you should find something that works well for you :)
Thank you for your advice. I will probably go back to improving on my old style. I need to start learning more action poses and things.
Nice lightning :D
Really, those waves looks awesome! As for the leaves you could always try making a few "leaf" brushes, and just press with them randomly at the tree. That would add leaves easy, and it would actually look as if you drawed all of them by hand ;)
Nice work, I really like your style :D It's sad how this got a score under 4 tho :O
i guess im not good enough
Me approves :D
Love it, your lighting, expressions, style and subject (of course :D) is just awesome, but... what does this has to do with Mandess Day? ;3
My bad. I sorta mis-interpreted the contest.
Really, you have got so much better since I first saw your art! But I wont rant about that, instead I'll try to come up with something helpfull :)
You have a good structure on this, with darker the closer the camera (viewer?) and a nice bloom. But you should probably use a custom brush that's made of a "cluster of pixels", it tends to add "detail" to places were it else is just soft, as the fog and background. Adding a little more dark at the left corners of the picture would also be good, as it would give a better lightning effect, and adding an overlay layer with light blue to the right. Also, you should add shadows on the ground.
Other than that, this is really good :D
Hey thanks for the great criticism man, I'll try to take some of that stuff into consideration for next time :) Making custom brushes is another thing I need to do a lot more of anyway
It's nice to see that you're improving, this is much better than your first pictures :)
I don't know if that was your intension, but the brigde has very... well, unfinished edges. And the sky seems somewhat lacking of life too, but that's seriusly the only thing I can complain about :)
Good work, looking forward to more :D
Hey thanks for the great review! I totally agree, I'm still learning here so I'm making mistakes all the time :P But thank you for pointing these things out so I can do better later on :)
Whatever the moron under me says, this is good. Good enaugh to be scouted, and getting a 3.50 score or more.
Something you should improve though, is the background. It would look much better if you made a "full picture" with some random landscape behind him. Thinking of the title, it would be cool if there were a lot of sad and depressed guys behind him, and he is like ^^ anyway :)
Looks awesome! That scythe looks sick, and the blood looks cool too. One thing though, you should ad some more details the SMG. It looks cinda... simple.
Other than that, awesome work, and a BIG thank you!
I think you could have added more details, but for a first submission it's good. Just keep practicing ;)
