Here is an illustration of my OC Clea !

I'm especially happy with the colors and lighting here, contrast was supposed to be an important element of the drawing, so I am glad I managed doing it right~

I wanted to show how much happiness, joy, and hope Clea was able to spread around her~ I wish I was like her, able to give people tons of positive enrgy ! I hope I can convey more positive messages through my art :)

Sending positive vibes to you all, and wishing you happiness :la:

Lovely work! I like her expression and the colours look really nice. I like the idea of her painting the sky back to sunshine. :squee-love: - PLZ

Cute concept. The line of action you’re creating is a little confusing though. She’s supposed to be painting in the “brighter” background, right? Her right arm is dividing the space and only the tip of the paintbrush has the softer color—it looks more like she’s interrupting the brighter sky instead of vice versa.

What is the giant thing behind her? I’m assuming it’s a paint roller, maybe...but it’s really not clear. Aside from that, it’s just an unnecessary eyesore. It looks like it’s jutting out of the girl and is actually taking away from the focus on her.

There’s no clear light source, so the current lighting doesn’t quite make sense. Even if you were going by the sky’s “light,” the side of the girl closest to the dark would not be the brightest.

Ahh I see, I didn't notice this at first but myabe that it's indeed causing confusion ^-^"
For the paint roller I guess it wasn't such a great idea to put it here, although it was part of the girl's desgin x'D

Thank you for your insight, I'll take notes ;3

The paint roller itself isn't the problem, it's the placement and size juxtaposition to the other items. It's also not as defined as other elements in the image and appears rather flat. It could also maybe use paint on it? xD

I really like the character design and concept and her abilities to 'paint' the world with joy. You can just tell she's a super positive character and the colors are really cool!

I like the colors, but the anatomy needs work. You should draw from life and use reference poses and guidelines to make everything proportional. Also work on the background, it doesn't look cohesive.

Thanks <3
I know that anatomy needs work haha, I am already practicing with references and life drawing-
Oh and I know that the bg isn't cohevisve, but it was my attention, to draw something with 2 separate, distinct parts o^o

Thank you for your advices !

Yay, I made you happy! :)
I've been working on some pictures that were suppose to have movement, but they tend to come across as flat. So I like noticing how other people have managed to capture it in their own art.
Keep practicing the lighting/shading, you did so well on it in this one I'm sure you can do it again.
