hOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
this took
sO lOnG
bUT IT TURNED OUT P GOOD !!!
this is my new years resolution; to do paintings !! so thats exactly what im doing
i've felt like ive been stagnating a bit in improvement, ive gotten much better at things like anatomy,  but in areas like shading i havent really improved in a while, so i thought that painting would be a good way to improve that !
edit: alSO i forgot but i would love a critique !! im jumping into this pretty blindly

giving me a watch or my comic a read is greatly appreciated~
:iconcactipotent:
first of all: dude, you NAILED the paint texture/distribution. The textures on everything are vv interesting to look at, the shininess of portions of skin, the way you captured the hair is really realistic and gives a whole dimension. The whole piece has a warm, cozy look to it, and the eyes are flawless. The shading is also really even throughout the drawing, and not all over the place without a light source.
honestly??? it's just goals PLEASE TEACH ME HOW TO PAINT

Something I want to critique on, however, is the shading's colors. (forgive me if im wrong about this, but-) I suggest not relying on the 'shade' layer on SAI, and changing the hues as well as the darkness when picking a color to shade with.

The shading is good on the skin, but it's a little bit too dark/desaturated and it could look a lot more interesting with a different color mixed in, like pink or orange to give the character more life. I heavily recommend watching this video: www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y38JkE… (if you haven't) cuz it helped a ton for me and explains it better than I can here.

The shading is awesome everywhere else, but you can even put the hue-shift principle on that as well, but it's not necessary

I also suggest adding bouncelight(s) from the background, it helps make the character pop and just makes things look a lot snappier and unified. I'm not going to critique the anatomy because I don't know how!!! :''')))

in conclusion? G O O D
