I'm trying really hard! Someone got any advice, other than making it twice as big so the face has some apparent detail?

Post edit (decided to differ from the drawing more):



Refs (and yeah, I totally took a picture of myself posing like the drawing, which was done by fly_boy42):

The head is already pretty huge. Compare the photo to the drawing. 

I might just have to redo it twice as big, but that still doesn't fix my face-making problems. :P

@deprogrammer: Your right arm (left side) looks a bit on the short side...And I think you need to shift everything below the waist a pixel or two to the left to give a better sense of balance...Not sure on that tho...

Made the neck thinner, added an eye outline while I was at that. I actually HAD outlines in the last version I posted, SilverSpirit, but I'm getting rid of them.

Yeah, the right arm looks short...the line art doesn't show how the arm is supposed to be sticking toward the background, but the references make it more apparent. It should look right when shaded.

But yeah, still trying!

deprogrammer you have a fine reference photo for the pose but it doesnt even seem like youre looking at it.  I highly suggest actually studying the pose in your reference, pay attention to certain things like what way are the shoulders angleing?  Where is on foot in relation to the other.  I think you can come up with a much better and less amuturish image if you pay more attention to the pose.

Some reason I entirely lack the ability to even tell if poses and anatomy are significantly off. I try to pay close attention, but I still can't see it.

So I have absolutely no idea what you're talking about. (Also, I've mostly been focusing on the drawing for my reference.)

ok deprogrammer, I dont want to sound like Im saying anything short of the exact pose in the reference is bad, but as yours is now, following the reference more closely will make it better in my opinion.  Well I drew some arrows on your ref compared to yours

compare the lengths and angles of the red arrows.  Also another thing you can do is draw a line down where the center of the figure is (the fuschia line) yours in more straight on whereas your ref is more at a 3/4 view, I think the 3/4 angle makes the pose a bit more dynamic.  Another thing you can do is put down some straight verticle or horizontal lines to see where things line up in the picture (green line).  SO from this you would notice that the right side of the shoe and right side of the shoulder pretty much line up.  Another thing you can do is check proportions by comparing parts to other parts.  For example, how many heads tall is it?  How far is it from the head to the waist compared to the waist to the foot?  These are all techniques you learn if your drawing from life, but also work with photos.

also in response to the last poster, I think it could look more like a girl too.  The hair isnt particularily femenine, as emo guys pretty much have that same hair.  Maybe make the pants tighter to show the shape of the legs more.

also, you sort of remind me of james rolf in that picture (angry video game nerd) ha.

edit: just noticed I wasnt using the newest version of your pic, well the crits still apply anyways, though the new one does look a bit more like a girl.  I did read it as being a girl by the way, but I just think you could push it farther.

Thanks for the pic/advice; that helps significantly. (I've come to the conclusion that I'm positionally blind.)

I'll see what I can do about pushing the femininity further...

I guess for critique's sake I should be using the photo reference, huh?

the trick is learning to see the image as a whole rather than in parts, because your parts might be right seperatly, but may not add together right.  Thats why after an initial sketch is a good idea to go back and double check all the relations and youll see things you might not see if you didnt go back and double check.  Looking at negative shapes helps too (not here so much though, but its something to keep in mind).

DeProgrammer, if I may make a small suggestion to push the femininity...get rid of the overcoat.

You seem to have boots on rather than high heel shoes, so make those boots go up past your knee.

Expose some of the leg area and change your top to maybe an over sized t-shirt or make the top a lighter color so that you can better define the shape on the chest area.

Lovin' the upcoming entries guys. I'll perhaps post a WIP today, but the problem is that I mostly suck at everything and I do a lot of tracing/referencing, though doing everything by hand of course.

@rik, that knee looks a bit too round and big :O

EDIT: My WIP (references to come later):



Don't look at her hands yet ;D
