    Default Jo's art from beneath her rock

    I've been begging for critique across the internet, and gotten little to no results, so I hope I can have better luck this time. I'll share my pictures here as often as I can. At the moment I'm limited to just traditional methods of art. I prefer drawing, but I occasionally dabble in sculpting. Hopefully when my birthday comes around I can get my paws on a Wacom tablet so I can go back to doing digital work.

    Currently I post my current work on my Tumblr: Under the rock
    I also have older works on my DeviantArt: SonicAmygirl on deviantART

    Critique is encouraged

    Drawings:
    Flygon flying over Route 111


    Godot


    Audrey II


    Fi


    Sculptures:
    A figurine of Toothless I sculpted (no paint)


    Toothless figurine (painted)


    Gonarch figurine


    Headcrab figurine


    Flygon figurine


    Other:

    Construction paper TARDIS

    Collage painting

    Abstract portrait of David Tennant

    Line-shaded portrait of Alex Kingston

    Posterized Kiwi

    Those drawings are great! I really like the background in the first one. and the little details the statuses are good as well.

    Early Easter picture

    I'm not religious, but I always have enjoyed decorating eggs, and later eating them.

    Ooh, I love your style! The Easter image especially is just adorable, though I can't help but feel that Buneary's arms look a little bulky. But regardless, I love it - the expressions on Exeggcute are really cute! Your figures are lovely, too. Toothless is my favorite, though I really wish I could see him from different angles >:

    Yeah, something about Buneary seemed weird. I thought maybe its head was too small, or its eyes were too big. Based on the art, the arms are pretty and take up the entire brown part.



    Also, which angles would you like to see? I don't mind taking more pictures.

    New piece

    I cannot get over how much I love the new female player character. She's so cute. She is definitely my favorite player character thus far.

    Alright so you want criticisms here we go.

    Flygon flying over Route 111: This may be my lighting teacher channeling through me but "Shadows, Shadows, Shadows" Your light seems to be coming from the north as evidence by the shadows of the rock. But that doesn't seem to be true with the left or right wing, and the tail. As such the wings end up looking, well flat and wrong. The same could be said for the shadows coming off from the mesa, maybe practice going from darker shadowing to lighter, just do not darken it too much to hide the detail. I know it is a fine line to walk but you will be a better artist afterwards.

    Godot: The left and right arm proportions seem to be slightly off, that just may be me, also maybe a bit more detail on the cup, is the liquid supposed to be at the brim? If not you could lower it a bit and have some shading to better round out the cup, both inside and outside. If so you could have some spilling over to also help round out the cup.

    Audrey II: You look to be off to a good start here, you need to start bringing out the detail with shading, as I seem to be hyping on tonight xD. Also add some detail into the background possibly? Maybe wood grain on the desk, or some different layers with the leaves in the background to add more depth.

    Fi: No real complaints here, you seem to be shading really well and this seems to be one of your more complete works. The crosses on the legs however seem a bit flat, and look as if you paid the least amount of detail to have it round out.

    Figurines: All of them look great except the Flygon, for some reason the painting on the Flygon, and the eyes in particular just seem like a rush job to me.

    New Piece: The dimensions seem to be slightly off with what your drawing, especially the lower right drawing. She goes from skinny, to kind of overweight, to very overweight it seems through out the drawing. If these are sketches that is fine, but I also know its hard to start drawing a new character.

    I really like your Flygon drawing! I agree I think there needs to be a bit more contrast because parts of the landscape get lost, but I'm not that much of an artist anyway so it doesn't matter what I say lol :P

    Plus your flygon sculpture is pretty cool, I find sculpting so hard!

    That seems to be a common misconception, that you have to be an artist to give critique. Anyone and everyone has an opinion on a piece of artwork. The trick to giving critique is being able to say "WHY don't I like this?" and that really helps an artist out.

    As for Flygon, I must admit my scanner at the time liked to lighten things up, which ruined that image.

    New works!

    I've been in a bit of a rut and everything I produced just angered me. So I decided to step back a bit and do something I was familiar with, and that's Flygon.



    Then I took another step and made a Flygon gijinka.



    Feeling a bit better, I decided to do something much bigger. So since I've been watching Korra lately, I thought I'd do a nice big picture for it.

    Inked
