SO SO SO LATE, SORRY :iconnuttyjigs: but it's finally here!! My part of our art trade for :iconanimefanartchallenge: - I hope you like it!

I know the anatomy leaves much to be desired, but I tried to do a more challenging pose for this piece. I think that's the reason why it took so long... I wasn't as confident in it as I should have been. But I think it's turned out nicely! I'm pretty proud of it.

Any advice on clothes shading would be much appreciated though. I struggled my way through it >_< so, gentle constructive criticism is welcomed!

Here is :iconnuttyjigs: 's half of the art trade, her amazing job on Alex Louis Armstrong and Alphonse Elric from FMA <3

Baw, thank you! :icontearplz: Oh, yeah, it's fun isn't it LOL. I'm nearing my graduation ceremony so I'm still pretty busy at the moment, but I wanted to finish the picture before I went a-travelling. <3 So, mission accomplished! And yes, practice practice practice!

It is a difficult pose, but I don't know if I could do any better. It would probably be hard to find a good photo reference. It's making me want to try though. :) (I'm always stealing other people's ideas!)

As for clothes shading, I usually think of it like shading a cylinder or some other such object, except trying my best to follow the contours where things stick out (like bosoms or elbows or whatever). I really struggle with it too.

But I just gave you credit for #34! ;)

Ah, you just reminded me of Hetalia picture on Zerochan that I used as a sort of reference, so I better link that. And go for it! I'd love to see how other people interpret a piggyback pose.

Yeah... I tried. XD I was just cellshading at first but it looked kinda boring, and then it got messy LOL. I'll work it out eventually. We just need more practice!

And thank you! :iconblushplz: (isn't it #24 though? Or did I sleepily read it wrong? hahaha)
