im gonna have to say out, sorry.
im glad to see that you enjoyed drawing this and that youre proud of the outcome! the only thing thats throwing me off is the shading. both pictures lack depth in a very big way. your anatomy is really great, like I love the legs in this picture. but the lack of definition is a big factor!! honestly, I think if you worked a little more on SSO and focused on shading/definition, you'd be more than ready to draw here. so give it a month or two, come back and blow us away not only with your awesome anatomy, but show us you can manipulate the tools into creating a clear, finished product. good luck!

Out. So the first thing I notice is that you really dont have a handle on color/shading/depth and the oekaki program itself. i know that you're trying to create depth with darker colors, but you don't have a light source. pick a place where the sun/light is coming from and everything you shade corresponds around that. Also, when you actually paint IRL , with photoshop and whenever it's really successful, people don't just use a darker shade of green/blue, but the color layered with a lot of other colors to make it darker- purples, browns, blues are mixed with green for example, to make it darker. With oekaki, its really tricky to work with this especially so i recommend you practice for a while until you get the hang of it!

Your anatomy isnt bad, but it can be improved (as artists, thats' what we're always looking for right?) instead of practicing on oekaki or another computer program, why don't you grab your sketchbook, head to the nearest coffee shop and sketch people? it helps a lot, they're called figure studies. No matter how good of an artist you are, these always make you better. Try studying not only anatomy and proportion but the balance of people's bodies, the poses, the movement of line ect.

The last thing I want to point out is the painterly style v. solids - i dont think that using soft tones and very hard pixely lines is what you're going to want to go for. Personally, i feel that artists are most successful if they chose one style and stick with it throughout the drawing. pick if youre going to use hard tones, or soft painterly tones, and then stick with it throughout your piece. otherwise, the outcome can be messy. This is especially true using oekaki.

Tryout #1

I've been lurking around for the past couple of days and everybody here seems to be so exceptionally talented. I was on an oekaki that is no longer active (rest in peace) and this place seems to be where it's happening. Glad to see people still so enthusiastic about oekaki!
