Get rid of the lens flare! Nothing marks a newbie like a lens flare!

They're quite nice, but for one thing, the jagged edges are obvious. Maybe some anti-aliasing? And the lighting seems a bit out of place, I don't know, maybe it looks like different lights are hitting everything on the map.

I do like the shading though, you made all the shapes come out nicely.

Thanks

@ Muz - Ahh, haha. Well I am sorta a newbie I suppose. And the lighting is bad in both of them? By jagged edges, I assume you are talking about the sword. I think the 2nd one has more problems than the first one.

Kain Somre from my book, Old Man's Tale: Sacred Heart. It isn't published yet but I'm trying

Since I had already started this thread about my art, I figured I'd just put it here. It's a fair attempt I suppose. Anyway, C&C welcome.

The shapes and such all show promise. I just don't like too much how it seems like your main attempt to finalize it was to blur it all out.

Hmm, I kinda get what you mean. Are you referring to the clothing or just the overall look? Heh, I agree it doesn't look as sharp and as vibrant as I had originally planned. I didn't do that on purpose though. Haha, I just dont know any better. Any tutorials you might have on shading and coloring in PS would be most appreciated. Something simple.

I've always wondered, do pros use the burn,dodge,smudge tools or do they just paint with different colors on top of a base color?

And thanks everybody. I do appreciate feedback quite a lot

Well I guess what I'm saying is, I would rather see sharp lines rather then lines that were obviously just blurred out. And like the girls hair in the second picture. I can see where you were going and why you think it looks nice, but really... it just makes my eyes water. I'm not trying to be rude though. All of this artwork looks like it would be great before it was actually shaded. So it's not all bad, I'm just throwing out critique.

Ohhh, I get it, I think. The hair, yeah. I use the burn tool for the hair. That makes it look like its blurred. Haha, no offense taken man. You stop learning the day you cant take critique. I'll try not using the burn tool for shading, lets see how that works out for me. Haha and yeah, I did think it looked good.

Your black outlines and lack of vividness don't help. If you look above you can see my naff attempt on Oekaki (ignore the colour choice, I'm useless without a colour wheel!). It should at least show how the light picks up on the fur at the edges.

You've done this a little, but it isn't bright enough, and the black outline kind of undoes it again. My best work with lighting to date is in the link below:

http://chris.planetwebsiteservices.com

The background image should show an example of colour and edge lighting.

Also, I tend to choose my colours this way:

1) Find colour of the light.
2) Find the colour of the surface you're drawing (e.g. a blue car).
3) Look at the colour wheel and see where they appear.
4) Find the hue roughly in between the two points.
5) That is the colour you should paint the car.

I see, I tried a new one with vivid colors and less black outlines. I'm afraid I'm just no good at shading Is this any better??

Last one is pretty nice and the face looks a lot better. The boobs seem a bit too big (unless you like big boobs )

You've got quite a uniform style. I can look at any of these pics and recognise that they're all made by the same person.

The most recent one, "Anna," looks the best of all of them, to be quite honest. And no, not because of bewbage . Rather, she looks the best because the lighting makes sense, and it's almost uniform. The only point I can make where it doesn't is in the hair.
