My first fanart.


ARWINGCOMMANDER 3987

Recommended Posts

This is my first fanart. It's the first one I ever did, so please be kind.

It's clean, but I'll ask this anyway. Do you think I made Krystal to big busted? Probably not. You can't really tell that well in the picture.

Perhaps a little, as an answer for your Krystal question, but like you said, you can't really tell.

This is really very good for your first work. Keep practicing!

Wow, every single star in the sky looks like it's in the supernova stage.  If I saw that in real life, that would be awesome. :?

Krystal does seem a *little* big-busted in my opinion, but at least you can't see it beyond the jacket.

Overall, pretty good for the first time.  One big suggestion would be to resize the picture to something quite a bit smaller so that we're not scrolling all over the place.

The best thing to do is just drop a link to the image. That way you don't have to kill the resolution and the forums won't scroll the pic.

Thanks! I had even bigger problems with Falco's eyes, as well as getting Slippy's head to a good size.

I'm having a problem getting this art commented on on deviantART. So far I've tried dropping a link to it for other people to click on, and more recently I've done the same thing, but this time I'm telling them to "Please comment" on it. Do you think that'll work, or will it just annoy them a little and they'll ignore it?

That's what mom tells me, but it still feels like they're rejecting me. Do you think it would help to reply on more of their works before they reply to any of mine? I think that might work.

That's a start. But really, they aren't rejecting you. You simply can't expect to get a bunch of comments as soon as you start doing something. It takes time, usually a long time. Don't rush people or they will get annoyed. Think about it from your own perspective. If there were some other artist who wanted comments on his artwork, would you comment JUST because he wanted you to?

Guys, two questions. 1: Do you think it would be getting off topic if I make another Star Fox related picture, post it here, and we start talking about that instead? 2: How come none of you have asked about the yellow line above the picture?

1. That's fine.

2. We assumed you knew what you were doing? I don't think we gave it much thought.

A little advice in general, you shouldn't be making fanart to be popular or to get comments. That's just asking for disappointment. You should create it because you enjoy it. Getting the amount of comments you probably want will take a long time and you'll need to do a lot more fanart. My suggestion: keep practicing. Post your work around, but don't ask for comments beyond what you might improve, because people are always willing to say what they think can be made better.

Thanks dwight, and you're right. I waited a little bit, and another comment did come to the picture. The same thing happened with another pic I submitted.

As for the yellow line, it's nothing serious. My current scanner is having that problem, so I think I'll be replacing it soon.

What perspective problems do I have? Was it with Fox's left ear and eye?

Well, the head is kinda disproportionate.

Before you jump into the world of anthros I would suggest looking into study of human and animal anatomy. This will give you a better grasp of what to do and it will help you in future pictures too.

I actually think I got the head near perfect. It's the just Fox's left ear I think I messed up on.

It's still good this way though, right?

It's not near perfect. It's recognizable yes, but it needs a lot of work, mostly in the area of perspective. Basically, your drawing indicates that you don't have a good understanding of how draw 3D objects on the 2D paper. Sure, you draw things where they should go and at about the right relative size, but the features literally and figuratively fall flat. The face looks squashed between the background and a pane of glass. Try looking at other fanart of Fox and see what's different besides obvious things like shading and pose.

I think it looks fine the way it is, but maybe I'll redo it sometime.

Look, nothing in art is perfect. The first step to being good in art is learning to accept critique. Dwight and myself have seen thousands of pieces of artworks of varying skill levels over the past few years. So we're trying to help you out here with what we know.
