Yep, it looks better now! Amazing job! And yes, what Koops said, the lines are a little rustic, try making 'em smoother, now it REALLY looks good!
help me please I dunno how to draw hands
Sure, whenever I draw Luigi again.LeftyGreenMario said:Hm, how about you draw the overalls (particularly around the armpit area for a lack of a better word) so they wrap around Luigi instead of being a straight line? Not hard, all right?
It's no sticker, but there may be more to it than you think...Snowserade said:
YTSSM said:WOW! Pretty good picture of my avatar. Really shows my commanding and organization aspects. Although, I think it is based to another user not on the foruma's avatar, but that is based from what the user is based on's artwork. Though, you based it on that artwork, it isn't all the way. I am talking about the two circles, one on each foot. Also, the legs near the shoes don't look like they go into the shoe like the other image.
I'm not sure what you mean by the part about another user's avatar, but I didn't want it to be too similar to the Itadaki Street artwork. I think my idea for the pose came from seeing that artwork so I used it a reference and it ended up looking pretty similar. In any case, it wasn't supposed to look exactly like that artwork except your OC instead of Yoshi.YTSSM said:WOW! Pretty good picture of my avatar.

Thank you for your appreciation!Shota Aizawa said:regardless of whatever he based it on its still a great drawing
that drawing and the one of lgm was a very nice gesture from luigi 64dd and i'd like to thank him for his efforts in doing so
Yeah, if I drew from memory, I could draw a decent Yoshi but not a great Yoshi. You'd have to be very skilled to draw something just as well from memory as with references. If you want your drawing to be higher quality, you should use references.LeftyGreenMario said:no shame in using references
if it gets you to appreciate a character's proportions and helps people to develop a more analytical approach to drawing (which is important, you have to draw what you see rather than draw what you THINK, make measurements, be familiar with foreshortening, all that jazz), more power
even then, you won't stop using references. even professionals use plenty of them because if you draw from memory without a thorough understanding of how proportions and stuff are, it'll be the same trap as "drawn what you think you're seeing".
Layering with colored pencils is standard practice among professionals. Experiment with other colors. Start light like always and gradually build up the colors. It helps getting actual cloth reference.Czario said:I colored his cloak and the other blue parts by lightly coloring it with a normal pencil and then using a blue colored pencil over it. I wasn't sure if it would work at first, but I think it turned out rather well if I do say so myself.
As the first post of this thread says, I mainly just draw the users I feel like drawing rather than taking requests. However, I wouldn't be opposed to drawing you (in fact, the thought crossed my mind before you posted this). Still, I have several other drawings in my mind that are frankly higher priority at the moment. If/when I draw you, I might add some things so that you are represented by more than just a generic pink Yoshi. In fact, if you want to add anything to your character to make it more unique, feel free to do so.Moldomré said:You draw users, eh?
Why not draw me?
Unless you don't take requests.
Well, we'll see what he truly becomes if he ever joins the forum.Lucario said:His favorite character ain't Toad tho... it's Mario.
But if they're both Toads but not me... does that mean... that I'm... a... a... ADOPTED?
