Looks good. Maybe the ends of the white smoke in the foreground could be smudged a bit so it fades out more.

On another note, I was told the blossums link in your tips I copied is a broken link. It has "PS" at the end of the URL. I can't fix it on my thread at the moment, but I thought you should know for your thread at otakzu (sp?)

ohhh, i see, it works on the furm coz of forum formating but there wasnt a space between the link and the text so it must have stuck the ps onto the link.

PS is for photoshop.

Same as Have's comment. I like the smoke rising from the cheek and the top of her head, but the rest is a bit... Hm. :3 Well, I suppose it's all in improvement. This is great for your first try at it.

Mmmn,

lovin' the expression and anatomy more than the smoke? It rises well from the cheek there, but not so sure of the rest.

The lighting IS good, but you cant really tell that so much with how subtle them thar shades are.

Personally I lurve contrast so tend to be a bit biased in this regard, but, I think it would help here, the shadows just arent as intense as le expression. :3~

lighting is actually that great fter looking at it for a while. and you're right, smoke just isnt.... intagible enough. it also isnt rising off her skin as well as i'd like. im gonna try fix that up in a sec.

thanks^^

You never fail to surprise me with this stuff. Technically, stylistically and the ';personality' you put into each piece. Every one seems better than the last, and adds another little bit more to the character.

She looks geniunely in pain, but not as much pain as whatever it was that made her do that is going to be in :D

Part of what I love about your work is that nobody is just 'happy' 'angry' 'sad' etc. Every expression tells a story.

thank you so much!

im glad you percieve some more depth and narrative to the image. i dont specifically aim to have a thousand words told by a single picture, but definitely more than just a single emotion.

ive always prefered pictures that looked like they have a story behind them.

I've probably said it before, but It's not something I've noticed in many pictures before, but your work really does seem to have a 'life' to it that most of the more ';popular' artists don't.

(popularity in this case being measured in how many pages of illiterate 'zomg thut is awesum' spam is tagged to each image)

...apologies if I'm rambling or repeating myself, it's 5am and I should be sleeping, not browsing DA. *slaps self*

well many popular artists do shiny anime, that while pretty isnt really for stroies, on the other hand some popular artists deserve to be popular.

im not sure at what point someone can cansider themselves popular on dev art.
