    you get 19+1+14+20+1 = 55 = 5x5 =25. Now mirror the number 25 and you get 52 = 5-2 = Illuminati pyramid has 3 sides. Santa = Illuminati confirmed!

Since some other people have been showing off their artwork, I thought I'd show some of mine.

I've included the one without the added background and aura, and one with.




Fixed the picture quality issue. They now display properly now.

Something odd, I've noticed...
I saved these as png images, but they've been converted to jpg, and lost some of their quality.

I'll see if I can find a way to fix this.

Also, thank you. Except for you Roxas. >:l

Anyway, I think I fixed the image quality issue. Might not make a difference, but now there shouldn't be the screen articles on the colors.

Might not make a difference, but if it does then that's good.

Everyone has their own style, and i'm quite impressed with the artwork so far.
Sure it's not everyones cup of tea, I'm not super fond of the face, but i'm quite fond of the detail you've gone into for the design.

The detail overall for the character is quite nice.

You've done a great job.
Albeit it could be better, but everything can be better.

Overall, I'd say it's 7.5/10

Hmm...

Judging by a quite a few remarks, I need to work on the female faces of Toriyama style characters.
I did have quite a bit of trouble drawing that face, so I'll buckle down and work on it.

Is it the eyes perhaps? They do look like they might be a little too far apart.

Still, I appreciate the constructive criticism, and I'll keep working at it.

Also, looking at the original drawing....
I noticed that I messed up her eyes when I scanned it. They were much more focused before... how did I miss that? XD

Really the only thing you can improve is the entire picture if you know what i mean.
You can't fix anything on the picture, unless you redrew the entire thing with a new style.
the image is quite fine as it is, now.

But if you wanted to improve, you'd need to redraw the entire character.

It usually helps if you figure out if you want realistic features or anime features.

Oh, I wasn't gonna try to fix it. XD
I just meant, I had found that it looked different in the image before I started coloring it.

But yeah, I simply need to practice drawing the faces of female characters in Toriyama's style.

In a more standard style (at least as far as anime characters go) I can draw female faces no problem, but for some reason, I have a hard time with Toriyama's style.
I can draw male characters fine (although kids are difficult for me). Perhaps, it's just the difficulty of drawing the more... curvy style characters that's difficult, since I'm used to drawing the more jagged style ones from late in the series. XD

Word of advice: even when doing fan art, if you're attempting to develop your own style, attempt to draw it in your own style, not the artist's. The face is the most glaring part of the image and I think it's because the eyes are lopsided. If you're not sure where they go, try using guidelines instead of free-handing it. I'm working on facial anatomy and there are lines all over the faces I draw right now to decide things like where the eyes should be in relation to the forehead and mouth, but that's just how I'm doing it because I have a different art style. I'd be interested to see how your original work looks.

Here are some other things about the images that bother me:

Spoiler for Constructive Criticism:
  • The back part of the hair doesn't line up with the front in the slightest. It looks like it's in a different style all together. You need to be more consistent with it. Either make the front more blocky, or the back more arced.
  • The folds in the clothing don't look natural -- they don't conform to the clothing's general shape. It can take a lot of practice to get this idea down, but try looking at the folds on your own clothes if you want an idea of it.
  • Boob physics. This is something most people don't think about, but boobs are really hard to draw well. He breasts are too large if you ask me -- she doesn't look like she's very old (eleven maybe? twelve?) so she shouldn't have a grown woman's "assets". They're also a little too perky and look like they've been augmented or something.
  • Musculature. The face and neck in particular have a much more defined musculature than the rest of the body, which looks like a twig. Try to have a bit of consistency between these, unless you're having a character skip leg day.
  • The background in the lower image looks like it's just copied from the anime, filtered, and then superimposed. Not pretty.

It usually helps if you figure out if you want realistic features or anime features.

Handy word of advice: certain particularly stylized anime styles are really, really lazy. You know, moe blob kind of stuff. It's fine if you can make it work, but it looks like shit otherwise. Akira Toriyama is one of the better mainstream manga artists when it comes to this if you ask me -- he has a clean, crisp style that can be detailed when he wants it to be, especially on machinery. He may cut corners here and there, but he usually does so tactfully and points out when he does. Things like Lucky Star on the other hand? Generally bad art references, unless that's what you really, really want to do stylistically.

Well, too be honest, I don't want to draw it in my own style, because then she wouldn't look like a Dragon Ball character.

Also, since I don't know of the age given to the adult characters, I estimated around 16, so she's much older than 12.

As for the muscular issue, I think it might look that way, because I used three color layers so it looks a bit different than I usually do (I usually stick with only two layers, which I think I'll do from now on). Also, I never use guidelines because I detest having to frequently erase lines. I always draw free hand.

Also, I already did say that the background was just a screencap. I can't draw background for s**t, so that's why I went with that, and I couldn't find a high res one. In that case it was just a take what I could get.

Normally, I draw a style more in line with Shigenori Soejima (although nowhere near as skillfully), so I'm a bit out of practice with Toriyama's style, and for some reason, I just have a hard time with his female characters (and children for that matter).

Still, I greatly appreciate the constructive criticism, even if I don't necessarily agree with some of the statements.

It was meant to somewhat mimic the first time Goku went SSJ. I thought that was pretty obvious. -_-

Well this is much better that I think I could've done, ever. Maybe I can draw something decent by looking at it and drawing it. But pffft, coloring like that? Not a chance.  I'm not that good when adding details while drawing on paper and pencil....
