Skies by jauni Skies by jauni
The blue skies, white clouds, hot summer breeze, and sweating all day. Oh how I'll miss summer break, but it's back to school for me ; u ;

I've mostly tried to focus a bit more on coloring/shading on this one. Feel free to critique!

I really enjoy this work it's very airy you can feel it's a picture about the sky.
I also like how you created the background all your own, and didn't use something premade to cheat, and attempted to shade and do something yourself. I adore the way it's coloured.:boing:

I like the way you coloured the clothes, and the hair and the eyes, it's a distinct way you use to colour them or create them that I like.

I think the sky in the background cut like that, doesn't make it seem like it's a natural part of the picture but, of a wallpaper she's posing in, I think if you maybe took that out maybe it wouldn't look like that.

I would love to see more diversity into your work and you challenging yourself. and also breaking out of that box that you draw in and just let it all explode, your creativity. and draw many different things that you aren't used to or aren't quite your strong points because then with practice it does become your strong points.:boing:

I feel that, maybe something I'm not sure what could be added because it feels very simple.

Or diving into many different body shapes and sizes, and different cultures and drawing from them and drawing to show many types of beauty for women. Or challenging yourself with different techniques in order to draw, I think that would also be a fun challenging experience. like different sizes of the body then just one, different curves sizes and all the like.:boing:

And challenging yourself to working on backgrounds or scenery, I applaud you for working on a simple one, but bump up the challenge and I'm sure you can also create a wonderful background if you keep on trying.

Maybe also adding more details to the clothes, and ruffles, and curves and wrinkles could add to that as well with the hair.

I like the way you drew the face to, I like that, I think it would also help to draw many different symmetry of the faces instead of one. :boing:

I would also like to add that I'd like to see you working with much more different expressions then the happy face, to work with different emotions that can be shown not just with the brows or the mouth, but with the whole picture in general, I think working on that will also be a plus and also working on different poses and working on body language of a character and being more intune to the character itself when there drawn, so it shows through the picture, that would be very nice to see in your works. :boing:

I adore the way you soft shade as well, That's a very nice touch to your works.

I think also adding a very personal and deeper meaning to this works would make them just as beautiful, making them personal and like you get a feeling of emotion when looking at it, instead of just a oh it's cute type of reaction. Maybe something that can stir a emotion, memory, anything would also help. I hope you keep challenging yourself to new heights and do and create things!

Here are also some references to help you with applying anatomy to your works. I hope this helps~!

The coloring/shading looks very good especially on the hair. It looks so soft.
Love the technique you used for the clouds.
