Winterstep by Electrispaz Winterstep by Electrispaz
So this is my new charrie, a sky pirate. From the edge chronicles. Her ship is called the dovecatcher, I will do a deviation of her crew. She wears the traditional sky pirate outfitting, without the parawings because she has real wings.

This was actually around the time I tried to make my first comic. I failed.

I'm interested as to know what kind of art style your aiming at. If you'd like I can help a little bit but considering I'm not exactly van gough myself I cant really be of much use.....

Buuuuuuut I should be able to help a LIIIITTLE. What exactly do you want critique on?

Taking into account your a beginner, what program are you using to draw this? if your just new to digital art I'd suggest drawing on paper and then vectoring so as to get a better result.

As for anatomy. Well a style is a style but wings are not shaped like rectangles. I prefer to liken wings to oblong triangles. [link]

The head is too big and the body is too thin but that could simply be the style you draw in and I'm not one for changing someone's style simply coz its not how I would do it.

>b>The Coat:</b> This is actually not too bad for a beginner, I can see your attempt at 3D on the left hand side there. Only thing I will say is for more realism and impact in the future, wind and gravity both affect clothing....and hair.....but yeah it makes the picture seem more fluid and realistic when you take that into account.

Eyes: Eyes are kinda a touchy issue with anime/manga. Everyone draws them differently. Though this picture was a complete failure on my part, I do believe this [link] is sort of the style you were going for with eyes. Remember that the eyes don't have to be a solid shape. In Japanese art, traditionally, less is more.

Hair: Hair doesn't start at the top of the head :P It starts above the eyes. I know with long hair sometimes its a little hard to figure out where to go but you have to use your imagination and feel around for that perfect spot because I cant tell you where to put that on your character.

Overall a pretty good effort on your part though :D

hair only starts above the eyes if you have bangs.

But it doesn't come literally from the top of the head. The joiner there goes down juuuuust a little.

Cute. c: I'm a little confused though, cat girls with wings aren't an Edge species. If you wanted to keep the wings, you could maybe have her be a shryke? A sky pirate shryke would be a cool idea, haha. Nice names too by the way, very Edge-sounding.

No, they are a new species that the freeglades hates called nekos! Yes I am weird, I'm making a comic of it!

Kirokokori Featured By Owner May 21, 2010  Student General Artist
Neko is just the Japanese word for cat though, the Edge doesn't have a Japan, haha. Maybe stick with a more fitting name for the setting? And Sky Pirates don't exist in the same time period as the Freeglades, unless you mean she's a mire pirate, ahaha.

Good luck with your comic. C: They're a fun endeavor.

it's also the anime term for half-cat person, and in the comic she discovers the cause-and cure- of stone sickness. The dark tower, on an island floating somewhere over the edge. You can only see it ever if you fly over a neko-area directly following a caterbird hatching, or if you actually go there.

Actually no....its not. neko is cat lol. Its not an anime term its just a literal translation picked up by the western audience to mean "Cat Person"

I know it means Neko in Japanese but all animes call them nekos.

Well, that was my point really, it's an anime term, the Edge Chronicles are quite definitely not an anime, haha. Wouldn't it be cooler to come up with your own name for them? A little originality can go a long way! c:

And sounds interesting, as long as you make sure to have her not come off like a Mary-Sue from all that, ahaha. It's not exactly canon with the explanation of Stone Sickness given in the final book, but I'm going to assume you've yet to read that, and alternate universe explanations are always fun. C: I'll check it out once you start it.

Well, they are fail-er than anything else I've drawn... except for Freedom... and those random doodles I make in class that you can't tell if it's a headless sphinx or a dead camel... I guess they aren't epic fail, just fail.

Okay this is your best picture yet! :D

One thing that bugs me about all of your work though is your lack of using layers. :/ It would all blend nicer without the white spots if you separated it a bit.

The sun could also use a bit of work! xD
