Here is an image I made of myself. I drew the outline by hand, scanned it in, traced the outline in MS Paint and then got rid of the other lines. Finally I coloured and shaded it in Paint then (tryed to) soften it a bit in Paint Shop Pro. So here it is.


To me, the left shoulder looks a little off and I don't really like the expression, but I think it's one of my best ^^; I'm happy with how the right hand turned out because I am hopeless at hands.

Anyway, comments and constructive crits are welcome ^_^

Yeah, there's something about the expression I don't like...

i love it. I love the shadowing, and the detail in the hair.

the eyes are a bit freaky, but i think its because you've made the bottom half of the iris slightly larger than the top half, so the eyes almost look like they are upside down.

also if u lowered the nose a bit it would help with the expression that you guys have commented on.

Then maybe add eyebrows, so the forehead doesn't stand out so much.

Other than that, great job! Looking forward to seeing more of your work

hi, back again

here's what i've done with it (hope you don't mind)

That looks pretty good.

The eyes are googly...Like a babies... If you tired to use some shading on the eyes then I think it would look much more like an anime image.

You might want to work on how she grips the poke'ball.

Ok guys. I tried fixing the eyes a bit. I just did a quick five minute job (as you can probably see) and tried out some different eyes and tried fixing the Pokeball that looks like a rugby lol. Anyway this is just a quick one to see if you think its better and then I can fix it up properly later.


(IMO it looks scary xP but let me know what you think...)

eyes much better.

the problem i see is the slant position and the way her feet are facing.
otherwise, nice drawing. :biggrin:

The picture all of a sudden got blurry! I guess because it wasn't saved as a PNG file...

Great improvement on the eyes and I guess having a hand grip something is kinda hard.

Yeah, I might redo it completely. I can't really stop her from slanting unless I redo the whole bottom half. Yeah she gave up playing Rugby, it just wasn't her thing :oops: The eyes still annoy me though. >.<;

Wow, the second one's really good. Yeah, the first one looks like a doll. :biggrin:

Sarah's picture looks nice. (both of them) I still wished someone would show me how to post pics in this. I was only used to it in NG but you couldnt post anything huge. Even though I also wished someone would make me a trainers card too. It seems everyone (just about) has some pretty darn good sigs too.
