The bostaff girl returns and with a lot of changes. I've wanted to make a character with a bostaff for a while and the sketch I did of her sucked. So, I started from scratch. I'm pretty happy with the outcome. There's no background because I have special plans for that later. =) Special thanks to Aikuza for helping me find what was wrong with it. ^^ Hope you guys like it!!

Ayla 2004-11-22 23:19:58 Only thing is, the coloring looks a little bit off than what I had it like. =P Oh well.
Marius 2004-11-23 01:51:37 Hey you're definately improving! I like the coloring :) Just the right foot shouldn't be placed exactly horizontal, just a bit more like her left foot or else the perspective seems odd to me. Also we should see more of her right hand. But those are such picky things that it can be just ignored ^_^ (just wait till ya see my next picture, it's got so many mistakes that even my little brothers drawings look good) So what's the deal with the special background? Care to lift a piece of the curtain? ^^
Ayla 2004-11-23 02:17:21 thanks a lot marius! it means quite a lot to me that you think im improving. i know you've seen a lot of my artwork so you'd probably know. ^^ anywho. yeah you're actually right about the foot, ill change that later when i find time. =P see with the pose, i wanted her wrist to just go over the bostaff and then have her hands dangle. turned out it was harder to draw then i thought so it looks a ltitle weird. and about the background.. hmm.. lets see.. without giving it away uh.. theres not much i can say. lol. ^^ youll probably be able to figure it out when i get more art up here. ^.~ good luck. be patient. =P
Def Character 2004-11-23 08:15:03 Nice coloring?
AAA-LAZEX-disign 2004-11-23 18:39:18 cool coloring but jou can work on the shoulders and the feet
ukkie 2004-11-23 20:18:57 yeah dangling hands are difficult ^_^ but they look OK now ^_^ I like the clothingdesign and her head too ^_^ I'm curious to the background!
AIKUZA 2004-11-24 01:35:51 hey, looks really good. Not much crits :P. I would do a bit more colors in it than all green tints. This way the character becomes more interesting to adore ;). Anyways, congrats on your improvements :)
Ayla 2004-11-24 03:30:26 thanks everyone. ^^ desty nova: yeah.. kinda do. =P lol. ukkie: sorry. no can tell ya bout the background. ^.~ aikuza: ::bows:: thanks. yeah.. turned out when i colored it, i tried everything and then just stuck to the green tints. maybe along the road something will spark and ill be able to change the color to something more interesting. maybe itll change when i do the background and stuff. ^^
Deetris 2004-11-24 08:07:56 Looks verry Ayla like ^^ that's a good thing. The colours I like. I like em natural. ^^ And I have to say that you're gettin a little more pro all the time :P
Ayla 2004-11-24 18:46:45 fuchikoma: lol. yes. minty fresh. deetris: aww deetris, you make me blush. lol. seriously. ^//^ <-lol.
zakuro 2005-04-17 05:54:58 your caracters are really cute! i think you should put more detail inot your boots, like add a buckle or zipper, or laceup. check out final fantasy 10-2, there are alot of boots in their costumes, its neat to see how many diffrent types of boots there are! your good at shading on the computer, i have no computer skills

Just thought I'd do something a little less serious for a change. The guy on the left is a friend of mine who's pretty cool apart from his nasty habit of stealing my pencil erasers in our physics lessons and mutilating them. (and ye, I'm on the right of the pic lol)It was just a quick doodle, so the colouring's a bit naff but meh

Not manga-ish, but I wouldn't be the first to submit something that isn't manga. I did this for an art trade, and also to get out some practice with watercolors. Yeah.

This was the cover I drew for my friends online comic that she's creating right now. I fiddled with Photoshop for a bit and I think it turned out pretty good! That has to be the best male character I have ever drawn in my life. That's pretty sad.
