An interesting style. Somehow, I'd love to see it in motion ^^

Hello again! I’m here from my free comments forum:

I really like this one! I think the simplicity of it really works, and I think you’ve drawn the face really well in profile. I also really love that cyclist up in the top left corner – I think you’ve drawn him and his bike really well! The detail you’ve put into her earring and nose piercing is also gorgeous.

Constructively for this piece, I would say that your perspective is a little off in terms of your composition. It’s not immediately clear where your subject is standing in relation to the road. It looks a little like she is standing on a balcony looking down at the road rather than waiting to cross it. Again, don’t be afraid to reference as much as you can – it’ll give you an idea of how to place your elements in order to make your piece read as you want it to.

Finally, I would again suggest really working on keeping your anatomy and proportions as consistent as you can. Here that one visible hand is a little too large. Small errors like that can really distract the eye of the viewer, so it’s worth keeping a close eye on them when you’re sketching pieces out.

I can see you put a lot of love into your pieces and the stories behind them. Hopefully something here was helpful, and will help you to create even more lovely pieces in the future. :heart:

The simplicity really brings out the work to make it stand out just with the two colors. c:

Nice story and scene setting. I would have widened it a bit. It kinda looks like everything is squeezed to fit in together.

I bet it was tough thinking in a inverse sense. I have never tried this before. Looks like it was a fun scene to draw!

There's a lot going on in this picture. You can almost hear the everyday noise of cars passing by and birds chirping.
