My part of an art trade with =infinitesilence I am really proud of how this work came out, one of my personal faves for sure. I am double happy now, because a piece with Namakashii again came out so awesome
Lucy has been an inspiration for me and also my friend since few years already. I love her art and she also is very nice and helpful. I am very happy about this art trade again and I am always happy to draw your awesome ladies. I added Adamastor (the birdie) too because I think he's adorable I really hope you will like it, dear
Love the color, the character as well. Very nicely done with the way you've chosen the way her hair is streaked like that.
However, the pose looks a bit painful. Not to the extreme and i'm sure someone with balance and great flexibility could achieve that post without wavering. It's just the fact that she's holding dual blades which seem a bit heavy. I'd assume it would be rather troubling to pose like that for long. Maybe try something more natural? OR...use a reference. Have her couched and scowling like she's ready to attack. Or in mid jump ready to bring down those sharp blades onto someone's head! Now that would be amazing to see in some of your art. Keep up the good work and hope to see improvement in the future.
thanks, glad you like the coloring though the character isn't mine- so I haven't designed her hair and clothes, but I only have drawn her in my style. well I just don't compare anime so much to real life, but maybe that's just me. who knwos, maybe the swords are really light and she seens to look happy with her pose, well everything is left to the interpretation of the viewer. I don't mean to sound like I am not listening, because I would love to make more poses but I am nto that good with them yet, so I am doing what I am able to, but it's just a drawing and it doesn't need to be perfect like in real life would be, because they will never be so real and anime is far away from being realistic, and I mean not only my style but a lot of popular animes. that is not an excuse to draw wrong, but... hope you knwo what I mean, sorry my english isn't perfect and it's hard to explain OTL sorry ._.
Yeah. You're right. I'm so stuck in real life sometimes, I like to apply it to my own art. Sorry if that offend you. And I completely understand. It will all come to you in time! It comes to the lot of us. And your English is very good. Better than most native speakers. So it's ok. I understand everything you are trying to say.
