Away from the Sunset by skyesong Away from the Sunset by skyesong
Prize for =PsychicPsycho for winning *the-zafara-club's contest :D

Psycho, let me know if there's anything you'd like fixed ^^

Other than that, FULL-VIEW PLEASE.


52 layers used, OC 3.06E Plus.
I speed-colored her, and I dunno why
Those are supposed to be angel wings, which is why they're all glowy. That and I needed a second light source.
I really like the wings :D But I can see some other stuff I'm not too happy with... T_T (I tried fixing them, but that just made it worse.)

The wings are wonderful, especially the glowy-ness. :3

The one thing that bothers me (or two, I suppose) are her ears. When characters have cat ears, their hair usually covers where their normal ears WOULD be...but not in this case. It makes sense, but looks a bit disturbing. But I applaud you on your new approach.

Great job. Keep improving! x]

Aaack, old picture, old picture!
Thank you, I'm glad you like the glowy-ness :D
It bugs me too... And there's stuff wrong with her hairline and proportioning T_T

Thanks again!

This is great, the pore is very dynamic. The hair looks amazing, what technique do you use?

A few CC's :
I know its already been mentioned, but the face looks off, mainly her chin. If the chin were moved a bit to the right, so that it's almost under the nose, it would look alot better. Also, it seems like the chin line thats closest to us should be one steady curve as opposed to the recurve that it has, while the far side of the face (right) should have more of a recurve.
Also, the lower leg looks a bit off, as if it's floating in space. this could probably be fixed by moving the knee closer to where the hip would be. Foreshortening on legs always seems way more difficult than it should be.

Hope that helps, great job otherwise!

What pore? :confused:
Ahh, yes, you're right on all points. I'll remember all of that :D

Mmm, yes, hair. I think it's all but impossible to describe, but basically I make a bunch of lines for individual strands, and the brush I use gets bigger the closer to the scalp whatever I'm drawing is.
Alright, I can't explain things well >_>

Good God!! Pore?!?!? :shakefist:

...I meant pose. Yet another example of why I need to proofread my comments.

Ah. So with the hair you... um... draw it. With... umm... brushes. Yeah. Got it. Thats helpful. Thanks.

I love the effect on the wings!!

CC: Her head looks... Really odd. Maybe you should add some strands of hair on her forehead; it looks like she's sorta bald right now. ^^;

Where are her ears?

:iconskyesong:
skyesong Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2005   Digital Artist
Well, technically her hair is supposed to be all swept back, but it's because of the hairline that she looks baldish. She's got cat ears, hence the weird hairline, so they're behind her bangs. They're white.

I'm glad you like the wings :D They were most fun to do ^^

Cat ears? *looks* Oh, there they are!! So she's like a cat girl/angel character, right? xD

The exact description was a girl with cat ears, angel wings and a horse tail ^^
(You can kind of see the tail, I think >_> )

Ooo yay =D That's one thing off you're todo list ;)

The only thing that really stood out to me was already mentioned in the other critiques and I'd feel bad about repeating anything ;) I'm sure you understand though.

Other than the things I saw... I think it's amazing :O

Thanks! And thank you for not repeating stuff, it's always dull to have to say the same thing to all twenty people who say "Oh, you messed up this one thing that somebody else already mentioned but I don't know that so you can't hold it against me." XD

I think her eyes should be a bit larger and maybe closer together, but it's your call...

Also, the shape of her face is a little off around her eye, mayeb if you look at real human face shapes, you could fix that better. ^^; And also, the hairline goes in front of the ears [or where the ears on a regular human would be] a little ways, so she looks a little bald.

Other than this, I love the hair as usual, as well as the sunset and background, it's much better than what I make, I have to admit.

Yup, there's a bunch of stuff off with her hairline and face shape... So hard when there aren't any ears T_T
I'm actually trying to lean towards a more reallistic style so it doesn't clash as horribly with my coloring style, which is why her eyes aren't bigger.
I'm glad you like the background and hair :D

Wow! That is so cool! I love the lighting on this, It's so intresting and looks so good!
Now..If ya don't mind..somd CC...
THe one thing that really bothers me about this is the background..I shouldn't be saying that as I am so lazy with backgounds my self...but oh well. The thing about the buildings is that they look too rounded, and unless you REALLY wanted that...well, it just dosen't seem natural to a city. Buildings are normally very square, including the windows, I think that's the part that really gets me about them. ANyway, enough complaining about small things. The other thing that looks a bit off is the side of her face. Normally you wouldn't see that much skin between your eye and hair. On me, my hair is about the top part of my middle finger from the side of my eye.
ANyway, I absolutely LOVE how you did the hair on this! Man..I wish I could do that..or rather had the patience..Lol

The background is weird, I'm not sure what made it turn out like that ^^; Although I agree :nod:
I'm glad you like the hair and lighting :D
