Thank you guys for your input on tumblr on Weiss' hair colour! I'm glad it's left white after all.

Very very nice the way this looks! Really hope you'll do more RWBY characters~ Maybe in an action/scene of some sorts but it's so up to you^^

WOW. Just WOW.

Not only is this such a vibrant and beautiful piece in itself, but I looked at your gallery out of curiosity and recognised some of your older RWBY artworks - and while I'd liked some of your earlier fanarts, I'm simply amazed these were made by the same artist. I just wanted to say the improvement is incredible, in terms of anatomy, flow/rhythm and composition as well as colour, contrast and lighting.

Just a detail that bugs me regarding this piece is Whitley's left hand, the combination of angle and size seems a tad odd to me, and hand anatomy is always super tricky with these unusual angles. I'd just have gone with blurring it in a certain direction slightly to emphasize the movement and keep the viewer's attention around their faces where the focus is. (But then this is just a suggestion and at this point I am nowhere near good enough to produce artwork of this quality).

Congrats for the great art and fantastic progress, you just earned yourself a new watcher! :D

Thank you very much for the feedback! And yeah hand anatomy can be pretty iffy lol i do still have many problems with it xD
I'll definitely try out your suggestion in future pieces though :love: Thanks so much again~ I'm really appreciative of any critiques :la:

Extremely lovely.  You can practically hear the music.  The line work is great and the perspective and composition is really impressive.

This is too amazing. Love this as well as how you execute how this drawing went. It really shows how down Weiss is and how she doesn't want to hold him at all while Whitley holds onto her with all his overconfidence. The small details really show and I adore it. Awesome job ^_^

Thank you for noticing! At first I didn't want either of them to touch but I went back to watch volume 4 just for a bit more character study and recap and changed my mind. :D At this point in the show it kinda feels like Whitley has all the authority in the world and Weiss has almost nothing, despite her coming from a wealthy family. Thanks! :la:

Nice work, but indeed too close for comfort, mostly for Weiss.
