Sunny Days by Mayleth Sunny Days by Mayleth
Cammy may be a highly skilled, brutal warrior, but she deserves her peaceful days, too. And a face as beautiful as hers needs to smile more. X3

I think Cammy's long pigtails are one of her loveliest features, so I like to give them due attention and work them into the composition when I draw her. :) I also decided to take an extra step and add the emblem into the badge on her beret, haha. XD

More practice and experimentation with color pencils and inking.

I can see a whole lot of difference between this and your previous pieces - the colours are solid and really jumps out and I think your shading really worked wonders!  

I like how you've added shine as well as shadows to her pig tails and it gives it that extra dimension of depth.  Here's a tip though - try to vary the segments of the pig tails/braids not only to get a sense of perspective but also attention to detail (not that you haven’t given it any) but braid segments get thinner and smaller as you get closer to the end – just makes it that much more convincing.

I think the alignment of the face looks a bit too much to the inside – as in you need to push the mouth and the chin outwards a bit more.  The rest is ok and so is the vertical positioning of the features :thumbsup:  Be careful with how pointy you make the tip of the nose (not sure if this was intentional but less is more sometimes)

Just with the boobs – look at how it’s drawn and shaded in your references to give it a more rounded look.  The angle in the shadow on her right boob gives the illusion that it’s more flat (however, this would be the way to shade male pecks!) and more under shading would help to give the left boob more volume even without adjusting the linework.

All round great work and a massive leap forward! :D

Thank you!! I'm very glad that the colors and shading really pop and are an improvement!! :)

 

I prefer the look of thick braids over thinner ones, but I could try that out, even for experiment sake. I draw Cammy a lot anyway XD I intentionally made the tip of the nose pointy... I still struggle with face alignment but I can continue to practice that.

 

I don't see Cammy as a top-heavy girl, and I see her as wearing a built-in bra with her leotard, and leotards tend to give girls a more flattened look. It's a different material from say, a swimsuit. Also, remember in Nishimura sketches's she says Cammy's breasts are flattened by her leotard? That is how I always saw her. In most official art and designs of Cammy, she's not very busty.

I didn't mean make the braid thinner, just give it a bit more variation down the length ;) 

Understood.  I just think that the sharp angle I'm seeing in the shading makes it look a bit too flat on her right side?  It's not overly voluptuous, but at the same time it has some volume to it...

Oh I see! I can try that out XD

Most of the time I draw women on the endowed side so maybe I need more practice with this kind of case. I'll try looking at more references and how to shade them!

Geez, you did really good with her beret, face and hair!
...then it sort of looks like you rushed the rest of her x3 It kind of looks like her face is on skew xD
