Mangaworkshop - Amateur manga artists community

I normally struggle when starting peices.. but I read my horoscope the day I started this and it said that I'll be inspired and very creative.. and then poof. This appeared. =P Anyways, I dunno if I'm really happy with this one or not. I worked mainly with the coloring this time around. I just don't think I'm too proud of the hair style.. the rest I'm ok with. Also for the first time I drew and colored eyes in my true original style (the way I always draw them on paper). Let me know what you think.

Def Character 2005-02-08 09:06:57 Desty is right Nice and Clean howz about cellshading?
Ayla 2005-02-08 11:28:43 desty: yeah i agree. and id be happy to work on that with you. =) just email me when ya can. def: hmm.. somethin to think about. =) natsume: lol. thanks. rino: lol to help you out if you want it little finger is also "pinky" =P as for her pinky though.. if you try bending it that way.. it looks something like that... try it. but you look right on the proportion of the fingers to the palm.. good eye. ^^
AIKUZA 2005-02-08 17:19:44 Kinda a different style, but I like it :). The character puts down a good expression ;). Only crit would be that her skin is to pale. Maybe more reddish tints and stronger shading. You shouldn't be affraid of using stronger shades. you should experiment with layers and check out what suits it best. It's different than all the other girls you drew, this one shows more personality. You go Ayla!
Ayla 2005-02-08 18:45:59 desty: check your email for my response. ^^ aikuza: glad you like it. yeah.. once again the skin is pale.. im actually not sure why. i thought about it this time i swear. on my computer at home it looked more of the shadowed skin color.. ah crap. >< i know why its like that.. i have a bobblehead mac.. so it looked darker because of the way the monitor was positioned. and just cause you say so aikuza, my next peice will be going all out with the shades an hightlights.. ok? ill conquer that fear i have. =P thanks for the comments you two.
ukkie 2005-02-08 20:46:17 yup, very nice and clean ^_^ I guess everyone already said what there is to say; it'd be nice if you shaded it, but you did a great job on the expression! 1 thing I'd like to add is that the hair needs some highlights I think. Anyway, keep it up! ^^
Deetris 2005-02-09 13:53:19 O.O Ayla drew me as well! She even added my earring. ehm Ayla darling, I got BLUE eyes ;) LOL. Even tough this is a little different as usual (and not bad at all) it's still recignizable as Ayla art
