(On top of that, why use a DA watermark? That's like, giving them more credit than they deserve. It's not like they actively help anyone with any part of the design process. I'd at least make up my own insignia, but now I'm just ranting about DA).

Anyway, that's just a suggestion insofar as keeping your work yours, but not having the focal point be something that you didn't intend it to be with factors beyond your control. I'm not coming down on you or anything.

On a more constructive note, though, I do like the way you draw eyes on characters, and that much is consistent on each of your pieces. Even the dog Pokemon, whose eyes I'm guessing don't actually look that way looks a lot more cute with them. I also like the wide mouth on the blue haired girl. I really like wide mouths, though, ahaha. I dunno why, it's so cute for some reason.


Yea i used the dA watermark because i was really lazy, and since i didn't exactly have a background, a signature would have been too easy to rig xD;; since i like to play with photoshop i kinda realise that using the path tool and careful erasing would be really easy to get a signature out of an artwork and forge it somewhere else y'know? OTL;;

I think the eye style is the only thing that remains constant dhsjkhgs (but i am close to forgetting how i shade them already fhjkshgfds i'd better practice when i'm free)

oh yea, aichi is a boyyy i have no talent in drawing dudes *sob* Aichi Sendou, from cardfight vanguard. aka my self-proclaimed husband

Personally, I would like to see more of you traditional artwork. From what you've posted of it so far, it seems like digital art is where you really shine. But you've got raw talent and you should really post more of it! You're not afraid to use color, and that's clear. But when it comes to your pencil work-- it comes across as monochromatic and a bit flat. Don't be afraid to push the blacks and lights in there and really make it pop! ;]

Great job, can't wait to see more!

I think my digital art is okay, but my traditional art's anatomy is stronger :D i tend to scan in the traditional and trace over since it's easier
thanks so much for the critique!
i think it's a lil hard for me for traditional art since i prefer using mechanical pencil, and yea, i end up puncturing a hole into my artwork fdjshgjklgfdsjhfs OTL but thanks for the critique! :O so i guess i'll have to end up changing my lead to 4B (i'm using 2B now) for a darker shade... thanks! i'll try practicing during the weekends when my homework is done (nope, it's never gonna be done, i'll just procrastinate and draw---)
