CHECK OUT THE NEWER VERSION HERE :D


Just a little picture that I did whilst I was in China, and only just managed to colour about a week ago. I normally leave a week before uploading to DA so that I could review anything that I could improve.
I fell in love with the Chinese culture whilst staying in China, so I thought it'd be nice to draw a picture of it. I completely
a d o r e d the clothes that the women wore. They were really pretty *__*
This is also showing my new style of drawing ^_^

This piece has the potential of being on the 'Featured Deviations of the Week' on :iconfeature-me-weekly: ~ :)

there are some tiny little details that needs a little more work here, like the lips.. will you fix it? I would look forward to feature you, the next cycle then. :heart:

aahh.. its your work, so you are the best judge! :heart:

~ if you ask me though, I would say they lacked a proper structure, a bit. the head-hair proportion can be worked on a little too, i guess.
The hair looks a tad bit bigger directly at the top - is what I think. This piece is almost 4 months old.. so if you have new tricks and have developed in the time in between ~ why not dazzle us with your touch ups?! :heart:
~ drop a note to the group, when you think it is ready. :)

Okidos, thank you very much for the advice and shizzle. The only problem is... Idk how to do the lineart >_< Because I didn't tweak the lineart in photoshop and only scanned it in and then coloured straight onto it, so Idk how to edit the lines ;_____________;

It looks really beautiful and it's very delicate too. Although...the hands are very small with accordance to her face, otherwise great feeling to the pic ^_^ Your realistic style is coming well :D

You made progress again ! Congrats !
A little advice : widen the hands. If you put your hand on your face, you'll see it has almost the size of your head.

Awh thank you! I'm glad that you think so ^_^ Yes I too thought that the hands were rather small, and now realised that it's because of the width of the hands, although the length seems to be fine. Thank you! ^_^ :love:
