Drawing Chun-Li is both really fun and yet soothing for me. I love her so much that drawing her just comes naturally
so young and sweet ... love it
Sorry if this is a weird question, but do you think my style is pretty? It's just in all the feedback you've given me I don't think you've mentioned the characters looking attractive (though it's possible I just can't remember) so I wasn't sure what you thought of it on an aesthetic level...
With things like ribbons and hair, they tend to move and fall about in a random way so it's best to give them an irregular/non uniform look so that it'll look more natural As with the nose, just keep looking at as many refs of how it's done frontal view so you get an idea - of course it varies style to style but it'll give you a hint all the same.
Yeah I see what you mean about the ribbons. I should just style some in my hair and look in a mirror for real life effects, lol.
With the nose, I tried making it a bit bigger, since I don't know if you remember but in my other Chun-Li drawing of her in her SSFIV alt you said the nose could be a little bigger... but I guess I didn't really know in what way to make it bigger per se
I understand - it's just with the anime style it's kinda hard to show that unless you go into more details, but then you'd lose the anime look. From what I've seen, front on faces in that style don't really show nostrils but rely more on the position of the nose tip - the line of the nose is almost all straight and only goes out to a point at a slight angle to express the tip. You can adjust the size of the nose by how far vertically, and horizontally you emphasize that tip. It's a very subtle feature already as it is and it's simplified 100x more in anime style so it's just a matter of practice to get a feel for how you'd like to draw it
Were you referring to my style?
Here are some examples of the frontal vs side view re the nose in anime:
You can see how front on seems more straight and the side view has the line only slightly more skewed. Also with the front view, there is a tendency to draw a triangular shape to the side - that is supposed to be nostril and top of it on the shadow side/or it could be the base of the nose. Very, very subtle when it comes to noses in this format
Sure! Go for it - can't hurt to be thinking about what you are actually drawing rather than drawing blindly XD
For clarification, I'm going for a style that still has anime/comic flair but not such extreme proportions, so still reasonably close to real and semirealism proportions, because I like detail. I also like the Ghost in the Shell style which is WAY different from SM and DBZ: www.2d-x.com/wp-content/upload…
So I think it comes down to continuing to practicing and progressing my style by looking at various references
And thanks so much
