How I was raised by a pack of wild kids...and lived to tell the tale.
You asked for it, you got it! Still briefly unfortunately, but I hope it helps!Firstly, it really is good. It has a nice soft feel, almost a glow, which you want in a bridal image. The pencil work is decent and the face is well drawn.For constructive crits, I would prefer to see the reference before going too deep here, but here are some of the small things I can see that could use some tweaks, so to speak.Over-all, it may be a touch too soft. That could be a preference thing though as I like definition.The anatomy seems a bit wonky in the shoulders, but I cannot say for sure without the reference. I guess, she seems a bit broad considering the size of her head.The only other thing I can suggest is maybe this needs a background of some kind... I hate drawing them too though, so I am not one to talk there. ;-)Hope this is helpful my friend. Cannot wait to see more!
thank you! really appreciate it. i was stuck a bit stuck on the background. i tried a thing or two, but...nothing was right. think i just wanted to be "done". :)
