So first off, let me say this was a commission piece.
Key word was.
Was because I kept messing it up, over…and over and over again.
Let’s look at the line art, I’m sure you can see the hundreds of erase marks, no amount of eraser could cover those smudges
The sad thing is, that was with the flash on. Yes, the entire page is a giant smudge. Ugh.
Now lets look at the colored one. Well firstly, what the heck is the big red thing behind it. Well, if you look at the sketch on the left, I messed up the right leg, I had lightly sketched the correct leg path. Unfortunately I didn’t think to erase the wrong one before outlining, so I outlined the wrong one then had to find a way to not give her a weird leg roll that made no sense. I did the top right of the red oval and slowly tried to make it more symmetrical. I don’t know why I thought it would work.
Next issue, I can’t shade. God, I can’t shade. I love the new markers, but looking at it makes me sad.
The hair… I attempted to so many things on, and tried to mix them all together, I’m still not sure if I’m happy with it.
I probably also should have taken the picture not on my sketch pad >.>
Concept for the pose and face that I slowly destroyed was from the front cover of a Fairytale manga. [which I don’t watch or read]
