RE: dragoon86's art thread
You're gonna need to focus on the shading of your characters. These recent works, although incredibly detailed and beautiful, feels ... very flat. Only the RJ trade and the Little Black artwork has some decent shading, but the RJ Trade shading still feels inconsistent.

The other two, unfortunately, are unforgivable considering your skill level Tongue

In the 'Cursed Aluka the Wolf' artwork, I needed to look twice to realise the blade thrust through his leg (thought it was a fur pattern at first Tongue ). Maybe its my LCD screen, but the shadings are really far too faint to have any effect on the artwork.

The 'Dracromar the Gunslinger' artwork is very good with the details and perspectives, the gun's position is accurately depicted. However, it doesn't feel like its really aimed at the viewer as the shading is missing. The character in the artwork has it even worse. There is not enough shading/shadows to highlight the position of his/her arm and the shape of his/her tail. It almost seems like a cardboard cutout of the character Tongue

Hope you don't take offence to my comments, Dragoon. Just felt that you needed some notes in the never ending quest for perfection Winking

none taken... well anyway the dracromar one is still a imcomplete work since i planning to add an additional female character inside so i might improve it later when i have the time...also i am inexperience in colouring guns still Tongue

and also regard to the aluke the wolf...it a last minute reference design to steal a slot for a request before it went full in that wolf forum i always went... it need to be flat coz it will make too complicated for my fellow wolf friend to color my wolf color scheme properly.

for Rj... the shading is "accidental"... so i have no comment Tongue

little black... as long as he look cute is good enough Tongue

anyway i didn't want my character to look too 3D anyway....too dark shading feel.....too evil Tongue

RE: dragoon86's art thread
Good Grief! When I mentioned you needed to practice shading ...

I didn't mean for you to turn the whole thing black!! XD

Really nice work! You're getting there with the shades that will give your character some dimensions Winking

RE: dragoon86's art thread
I don't know what to say or comment ...
Its been years since we had those "two objects" in AA! XD
*is fixated*

I really the design of the dress she's wearing. Unsymmetrical clothin ftw!

I also like the second artwork, the red tones really do speak emotions, however I do have the odd feeling that the character's mood doesn't seem to fit the art style *shrugs*
