So, I’ve been struggling with this for few months now and I am perfectly aware it’s nowhere near perfect. But before I carry on trying to improve, I want you to rate it.

PLEASE, BE HONEST AT YOUR FEEDBACK.
I don’t need motivation nor compliments to feel better about myself. Do not apologise, your honest opinion will NOT offend, but help me get better. While being over polite will mess with the results and make it harder for me to work on my skills. So, please, please, please, be critical.
Any constructive and harsh criticism is highly welcome, I am dead serious.
Thank you! You’re right, I am yet horrible with drawing any sort of clothes ><
If you don’t mind answering this, would you say soft shadow (if I make it darker next time) is alright, or should I use more of hard ones, like making it more cartoonish?
Omg same!! I try to avoid that as often as possible lol!
It depends what style you’re going for. You can use a hard edge brush for shadows, or an airbrush for example. Just never shade with pure black! (if you want a more realistic style)
Buying the right tools can sometimes actually change so much!!
Finding your style can be a really long process, but be patient, I’m sure you’ll get the hang of it!
Good luck! x
Thank you, your honesty means a lot
This is absolutely amazing it’s one of the best things I‘ve seen so far:heartpulse: i absolutely love it:heart:
You can make the face shape for characters a bit wider, as well as the swept-back hair for the guy in the second photo a bit longer. Also make the eyebrows a bit less solid, or else it would make it seem they are using loads of makeup to cover it.
That’s actually, a great idea, especially the eyebrows. Somehow that did not cross my mind, lol. Thanks a lot for them advices, I will try!
Ooo I love these!! I think the second one is top notch👌- the first one’s getting there, but i think the guy on her right needs some attention to his hair. Im not sure if its the shade of blonde, or if its the texture, but it doesnt have that same clean cartoon quality the other characters have. Oh snap- i know what it is! its those highlights actually!! The others have these KILLER high contrast highlights which make their hair a) more strandy(?)(<thats a GOOD thing) but ESPECIALLY b) glossier! Bump the highlights in his hair and you should be golden! I think his hair’s just too matte compared to the others
Omg, thanks for this! You are actually super correct, I’m pretty clueless with choosing right colors and shades yet. That was a very good point too, I will try to highlight more properly next time I’m dealing with blonde. Thanks again!
Of course! Keep it up cuz they’re lookin incredible!
I really like your style and how you draw the eyes!
I would make the jawline a little lower for the girl in the first example. Her nose seems a little too curved and looks sort of odd…but maybe that’s just me. Maybe it’s your style, I don’t know. And I love her shirt! You can also maybe make the guy’s shoulders broader in the first example.
For the second example, the girl’s eyes look amazing! And so do her lips! Her face looks amazing!!! For the guy, his forehead seems too curved backwards. I would bring his hairline more to the front and make his shoulders broader.
I hope that helps. Keep drawing!
You’re also right, guys proportions go harder for me, but now that I’m looking at shoulders I think they are too narrow indeed Thank you for pointing it out
Before I give you my criticisms, Are you aiming for a semi realistic style or cartoonic/anime manga style?
oh my days i love it keep it up !
Thanks for the reply! As for these examples, I was trying to go for cartoonish style. (but not really anime). I am hoping to try realistic style too soon, but haven’t really made any progress on that matter. So for now just cartoonish, please.
I love your style I don’t think there isn’t anything wrong cause again that’s your own style
