im surprised at the lack of comments about the distortion of her body. that pose with the butt turned up but the chest turned down is completely impossible. it looks as if the top of her spine must be bent towards us. She has no volume in her closest hip which might have caused the problem. From this view her closest breast should actually be where her farthest breast is atm. also the bottom area of her foot should be seen a bit, not the top like that. it must be really twisted sideways. If you can't see what i mean, imagine drawing her in this pose from the front.. Well anyway the colouring is really nice, it's just strange to see someone who is clearly skilled in one area make such obvious and odd mistakes in another o-o
anyway sorry if that seemed a bit harsh to you, but i hope you consider what i said. you clearly have a lot of great compliments on this work so im sure you dont need me to butter it up
Thanks for the critique, I always like to learn from other artists.
Is well known for the people who follows my work that I'm not very good with anatomy, even when I'm working with photo references like in this piece there is always something odd in the way I draw. I think that this is because I have been always be very focused in color and other aspects of drawing.
This is a good piece of work that certainly shows the growth of your skills and how you have perfected and improved many areas of your not only your style, but in the colouring as well. The design of Felicia overall is very nice and certainly there is a nice flow of motion in her appearance in the way you've tackled the anatomy, considering quite well the energetic movements she has while implementing that playful charm that such a girl would have. You've grown to understand the anatomy well and certainly with the flow of the anatomy is something to make mention, though it feels that leg and foot feel a bit too tight and not as loose feeling compared to the rest of the body, though nothing major that I'm sure you'll tackle it just feels that feet aren't a strong area just quite yet.
Colouring is very well approached and it seems from the look of this particular piece that you have learnt a great deal more about shading and the way you've worked with the values and more so in the hair. The mixture of warm and cool tones in the way they overlap works very well and certainly gives the hair that sense of movement than being a single shaped blob of blue.
