My version and vision of sagitariuos zodiac sign. the most beautiful and powerful of all (yes, i was born under sagitariuos =P LOL ) even i can beleive how good this one turn out to be!. -------- What i like: the colors are sooooooo pretty they are bright but not shocking to the eyes, the shadows are ok (not very good but just fine), but what i like the most is the fact that looks dynamic!!!! which for me is a big achievement ^-^. --------- Now what i dont like: those freaking ribs looks good but the navel is just wrong!!!!! i just could place it in the right spot **sob**, i also dont like the hair design .... it looks odd to the rest of the body design .... oh well, but i still think it is one of best pics ever!. Comment are welcome ^-^ <3

Marius 2005-02-05 22:38:32 Yeah you said most of it yourself already :) The thing I like most about this pic is the colors, use of warm and cold ones, technique, etc. etc. :D As for critiques, it's proportional not 100%. Legs a bit big/long and too much shoulders/upperbody when looking at the position of the breasts/head/ribs. As for the navel, don't sweat it, looking at the skillz portraited here, this is definately one of your best workz (on a sidenote, you've improved a lot in a relatively short time! ^^)
The Raging Spaniard 2005-02-06 06:39:59 sorry but, well, look at her right leg, now keep going down to her big toe on her right foot.. yeah, the big toe is on the wrong side. You should pay more attention to those things! ;). Usually somebody with such an agile pose wouldnt look so bored, try to put more emphasis onto the facial expression next time, also the way you colored the glow of the tip of the arrow is not bright enough, its too mellow so the reader is not taken aback as much (meaning it looks like a rather weak attack). Drawing wise, if shes falling forwards ro backwatds? Im assuming shes moving forward given the way her skirt flows, then how come nothing else folows that movement? Her hair should always reflect the position shes moving to, if shes moving forward, then have the hair tell us so. Anatomy wise, youre right about the navel and the ribs are actually wrong in the way that you drew them completely flat, next time try to focus on how the ribs wrap around the backside. Oh yeah, and her right hand fingers are amazingly long, weird stuff. But hey, I do like it, its just that i havent critiqued in a while, so it was your turn ;) Good job on most of the colors and specially the pose, youre getting much better
NikA 2005-02-06 14:19:02 thank everyone <3 , i redone it acording to TRS . Now her mouth looks like crapp (sorry), i made the fingers a little shorter, added more highlites to the arrow, tried to make the hair more windy (she is moving forwards) and her right toe is not visible but i added some outline to that foot and her other toe is in the right place ... i forgot what else i did ... <3 ^-^
Kaizu 2005-02-06 15:17:59 looks cool, only thing that bothers me is her leg, her knee looks very weird. But it's a very good drawing !, your best one i think.
Caro 2005-02-06 17:18:09 I like it very much. but indeed her leg looks a bit odd/ too long. but nothing that can't be fixed. Cool drawing xc
The Raging Spaniard 2005-02-06 17:36:37 looks a tad better, good job
Def Character 2005-02-07 08:08:50 Wow two thumbs up?
AIKUZA 2005-02-08 00:25:49 Very nice vibe to it. Colours are well chosen. also the actionpose and view are cool. It has some flaws, but I can live with that.
zakuro 2005-04-17 18:50:06 whoa... cool, I loev the outfit! no I dont know if you like in noth america or not, but we have a tv show here called "americas next top model" and the other week they did a photo shoot where all the girls had to be a star sign, they were really neat! why am i telling you this? meh, who knows... in any case your picture is really good, i like it!

A silly little sketch using some of my fav chars, Harry Potter and Fullmetal Alchemist. Hand drawn and colored in opencanvas and photoshop. Yes I'm aware that the VGCats also did a gag on this. There's no need to comment on that fact. Thanks!
