Hi! I enjoyed going through your art, and it's sort of rare to see traditional artists so it's cool see that community still thrive :D

Here's some general critique for you:

1. Try to keep your coloring consistent! A lot of your pieces that use marker seem to bleed, which makes some of the color a bit splotchy, which is very evident in pieces where the background is one large color. It's a bit more work, but coloring with marker a bit slower and carefully hides the bleeding better. A more expensive option is to buy markers that are specially made for artists, such as copics.

2. When coloring, try coloring in one direction! Coloring in one direction unifies the entire piece more, especially when using colored pencils/markers. There ARE times when coloring in different directions can be used, but are mostly advanced techniques to control a viewer's focus and pushing a focal point. Considering the artistic level of your pieces, it would be best to learn coloring in one direction first, and then experimenting with different directions when you begin to learn about creating focals.

3. The stain glass artstyle relies a lot on careful placing of lines to create focals. For your pieces, you seem to be putting the lines in random areas just to break up the shapes. An example of this is this piece you made, where the lines are very parallel to each other rather than in a more fractured pattern that stain glass is known for. It's a lot of work to make fractal-ish patterns, but I believe it would help make your art pop out more like other stained glass pieces!

For reference, here are some stained glass artworks that use more fractured patterning:

As you can see in these, the lines don't "repeat" themselves, but rather break up a large shape into smaller shapes. The last example with the lotus flower is a good example to look at. The leaves are their own shapes, which is very fitting for the stained glass artstyle.

Thank you so much for the critic Sunfished I'll keep it in mind. I looked at Disney examples when I started for the stained glass style so this was nice to take a look at some others. Just to see how it was done.

Hello there!

Coloured pencils are definitely one of my favourite mediums to use and it is nice to see others using them as well! I do like the more solid colouring approach in your many of your pieces as well and looks bold. Some techniques I have used with this material are using them on coloured paper (i.e. I find black paper adds a richness to the colours) and lightly layered my colours to add a bit more depth to the drawings until I get a more solid colour (if you wish to go for shading). I would recommend experimenting with those when working with this medium because I feel they help make the drawings pop a bit more.

Hope this helps and keep on drawing! :]

Added two more crossover pictures as well as some of my characters I've made over time I hope everyone likes them.

Thanks so much Fafaia for the advice much apricated.
