That's it so far. I take Pokemon drawing requests but ONLY through dA.

August 23rd, 2009, 5:22 AM
These are okay i guess...
You should focus more on the shading though...

That didn't help me one bit because all I got from that was that thier "okay". If they are "okay", how can I improve?

August 23rd, 2009, 2:24 PM
You should work more on the colouring and body design.do some shading, Maybe add some symbols and add a background. Like on the first one: The beak looks to triangular at the top. The legs seem defromed, it looks like he's grabbing on to something.

I know it's far from perfect.

Do some shading, Maybe add some symbols and add a background.
Why symbols and a background?

Like on the first one: The beak looks to triangular at the top. The legs seem defromed, it looks like he's grabbing on to something.
Yeah, it was drawn with a mouse digitally so it looks horrible.

And I have no clue on how to shade so all of my drawings, from now, will not have shading so don't even comment on that.

August 23rd, 2009, 10:57 PM
Good, keep on. You will do a great job.

August 27th, 2009, 2:15 PM
Added Sonic drawings and more Pokemon stuff + plus a landscape drawing. Could someone please give me feedback?

August 27th, 2009, 2:55 PM
O_o That first one, seriosuly, did look a bit... childish. No offense, but it was pretty bad, my little brother drew something around the same standard as that. He's six. Try using PAINT.NET or something, or draw it by hand, it looks too digital 2-D and fake. ;)

August 27th, 2009, 10:58 PM
One, it was digitally drawn with a mouse so you expect it to look bad. And two, you only comment on the one you think is the worse?

EDIT: Added more BotA art.

August 28th, 2009, 7:38 AM
No need to be so harsh on your reviewrs, Haz. I was only saying about that one, because that was the first one I looked at. I was looking at the others after I posted, but I didn't have time to edit my thoughts into my post.

August 28th, 2009, 8:08 AM
Hm... you're certainly interesting; you asked for feedback and then whenever someoens has given it to you you've discarded it and been quite rude to them....
You keep saying done with a mouse, therefore expect it to be bad... well. There are a ton of fab artists that use a mouse. If you can't use a mouse well, it's not your forte. i wouldn't reccommend doing it at all. (i'm just going to leave the way you shook off the reccommendation to work on the shading..... that was a poor show.)
'The shoddy workman blames his tools', are you familiar with that saying? well. i think that applies here. I took a look at your DA and i'm only going to focus on the broader picture of what you need to work on in general to make your art better. Please, don't ever take this personally, you asked for feedback; i'm giving it to you, if you don't like it, then that's NOT my fault.
From the overall impression, it seems you consider things very 2d. Shading WILL fix this. I know you said not to, so i won't elaborate further, if you later want my advice and tips on how to shade, just ask. i promise i dont bite. :3 So long as you ask nicely. of course.

You need to use references. When you;re drawing somehting, you appear to draw what you think you see and not what you'd ACTUALLY see if you looked at something. i know that with fakemon, thats hard, but try to find somehting with a matching/similar physiology. It'll help. a whole lot. i promise.
also, i reccommend eyeball copying a few images you like the style of. look at the proportions of it: keep asking yourself, where is THIS part in relation to THAT part remeber, the rubber is your friend, keep try try trying again until it looks best . if you don't like it the first time, do it again, and again, until you see it match as best you can. This is a technique many artists use *including myself* to get better at making our art look like something we like.
I thinthats pleanty enough for you to work on for now. But also think about the dynamics of your lines. they're thick and not well thought out. don't push so hard and a technical pencil is one of the best investments i can reccommend making.

Right. that should do you fine for now. good luck!

I'm sorry, I was in a bad mood that day and it was late at night so I was tierd.

Thanks for the advice, and I'm sorry again for my snappy response.

August 29th, 2009, 9:30 AM
I remember these days! Keep practicing, and try to appreciate critique. Sorry for havin a bad day and all. Here's some critque:

Okay, over all.. I'd say your... novice. No offense. ^_^"
I'm guessing your using MS Paint, yes? I see. The lines have o anti-alias, so, I suggest you use The GIMP (http://www.gimp.org). It's totally free, and it's great for making art cimilar to Photoshop's capabilities(and wanting to be a great artist, I'm sure you've heard of Photoshop).

More critique. One huge problem with your art.
There is no shading, shines, or anything that adds depth. That is really what makes it look novice. Your desertland one looks best because it has shading. That's what you need to do. Just look up shading tutorials, and I suggest you move on to GIMP and learn about more advanced digital art. I still have trouble with being sure where to add shadow, but you'll get it eventually. Me, I learned alot through just staring at peoples art in relation with light and shadow. And now look at meh! XD Anyway, keep practicing, because I started as a novice, too. (Really, you'll be surprised at my old art! XD)
I've been drawing for at least 7 years now, sooo... Yup, keep going. You may want to check out my art here (http://kitsukitty.deviantart.com/). And yes, you may want to see my Tutorial for GIMP Basics (http://kitsukitty.deviantart.com/art/Basic-Gimp-Tutorial-130340783).
And I see you've said "I use a mouse." Well, download gimp and try working with the Path Tool. It takes some getting used to, but it makes the lines oh so very smooth! XD

Good luck again. I think I'll be back later.

I'm sorry but cydiquils arms are not right O_o

keep improving

August 29th, 2009, 1:10 PM

I think for the Evolution of girafarig you should make it look a little bit different from Girafarig because all you did was make it's head fatter


September 19th, 2009, 8:50 AM
This is good start but you need some practising, and best practise is drawing more (and maybe some tutorials will help too). I have drawn my whole life (almost 15 years) and I have learned more and more by just drawing. (If you want see, go to my art thread, there's my two Charizards, new and old.) Some shadows should be in (I'm not so good at shading by myself too).

September 21st, 2009, 11:40 PM
@Late: Thanks, I will be :)

@TG: It wasn't an evolution, it was just showing how a Girafarig grows.

I updated with a few more pics :)

There are a lot of things wrong with this. First, let's just say the anatomy is very, very terrible. Not only that, but the colors aren't good either. The wings need work; I suggest to look at an actual chicken/bird when drawing a fowl. The legs are too thick and the lines shouldn't be so stiff. Seems like you made this in MS Paint, which is never a good thing. .

Cyndaquil: http://haz-za.deviantart.com/art/Cyndaquil-134799382
It's nose it waaaay too big, its head needs to be wider, Its front legs need to be wider and shorter and its back legs need to be shorter.

After doing just those two, it's clear to me that you're a beginner: Your artwork is definitely bad, to put it mildly. You need more practice; a hell of a lot more practice. You need to make sure you see the anatomy of the animal before you draw a variation of it or it will turn out awful.

You should try shading and using less vibrant colors when using the primary colors. Also, don't draw in MS Paint since you're just starting out. Some people can pull it off; you are not one of those people.

You need serious anatomy work; to help yourself, you can practice drawing random body parts that you're having troubles with, instead of the whole creature. That will give you more one-on-one time with that body part and you will improve faster.

If you have any questions about anatomy or want to know how big something should be, feel free to VM me and ask.

Thanks for the comments SL. I admit I'm bad and atonmy isn't a strong point. I don't draw in Paint anymore cause I suck :P and I'm slowly getting better.

I also updated with some new stuff.

October 16th, 2009, 8:36 AM

Not bad

but u need to learn


but some of them need to colore

And If u make shadow They look better


October 16th, 2009, 11:17 AM
Thanks but I think the colour issue is an opinion not constructive criticsm.

October 28th, 2009, 1:43 PM
I think the drawings are great, but (not to sound harsh) i would add a bit of shadding to your work. Just to make it stand out, if you see what i mean?

Hope this helps!
