Drapery is fun, and art > physics.

Color maybe someday, it was supposed to be not so unfinished, but then I got mad at drawing. I already see parts I forgot to erase because multiple layers confuse me, but otherwise, crit would also be fun if you want.

Reminds me a lot of Alfonse Mucha's work, it's beautiful. You've done the water so well [I can't draw water that looks like water x3] and I also like the ornamental thing on the right. The only thing I could crit on, and I'm not even sure if my eyes lie or not, is that her right leg seems to be a little shorter than the left one. But ain't sure and otherwise the proportions here are really nice. I think you should colour this, the feathery things on the head would look awesome. (:

I love you and your drapery skills :heart: The anatomy is very well done too, especially in the torso and legs, did you use a reference for that at all?

Only problem I see is in the neck/hand/jaw area. Something about that place just doesn't look right, though I can't quite put my finger on it. Perhaps if/when you color it, it will look better :) I also dig the border, it is very interesting

Oh man, I am so prompt at getting back to people. Sorry ._.''

Yes, I draw with twenty reference photos open in photoshop, and anatomy books and a full length mirror next to the computer. But hopefully, a seminar I'm taking now with help with being able to draw from my head more.

Thanks, but actually coloring is making it look worse. I'm really going to have to figure out exactly what's going on and how to fix it T_T

I think I figured out what was wrong! The hand is a weird angle, causing the head/neck to look weirdly shaped. I kind of butchered your artwork and drew what I mean ^^;


I also showed a new position for the back ear, since it looked like the angle of the head wasn't matching up with the angle of the ears. I hope that helps :aww:

Lovely!!!You did such a beautiful job on this!!Will there be a colored version?

Pretty!!!! I like it alot.. and I love how much you use drapery! The one thing that's bothering me a little bit is the curve of the eye in relation to the angle of the head. I think its the opposite curve needed here.. I think.
I think it would look good in color, but with more muted tones. I like it nonetheless!

I like this just the way it is, unfinished and without color. It adds a nice touch of elegance to the piece.

i had a friend in high school that had hair that long. i find it hard keeping my hair neat with it just past my shoulders :O_o:

i think maybe the thigh on the leg that is bent is kinda long. or the calf part is too short... either way, something there isnt flowing very well.

the drapery is beautiful. i'm finding it very hard keeping a regular drawing schedule over the summer. :(

Geh, I hate having long hair >_< Even at the length mine is, it already bothers me.

Haha, okay that's painfully obvious after you said that and I'm really embarassed now. Thanks, I'll work on it!

(I have a terrible drawing schedule regardless-- there'll be times I fill up an entire sketchbook in a week, others I don't draw anything for a month D: I think that it's even worse to force it, though.)

dont be embarrased, my friend. i suck at drawing the figure still... and at least you're doing something!
