England / Arthur Kirkland from Hetalia.

as always ; ) England's the best to draw actually, i don't know why xD but i promise, my next drawing won't include neither Arthur or Alfred. too much of them in my gallery xD

BY THE WAY i really enjoyed drawing this picture. As you can see, it's my first one with BACKGROUND ! yay ! finally.
and forgive me those sloppy hands... i'm still working on them! hihi.


anyway, hope ya like! :heart:

Your digital painting skills have been improving. I dig, no wonder you've been so popular lately, hahah~ Also, yes, background is nice but I really like how you used the leaves to frame the piece. And how you used the wand's light as a secondary source that casts on both Arthur AND the leaves. ahhhh, that's just some nice attention to detail there!

And now is the time that I throw in a tutorial to help with a problem spot.
[link]

So the hands. The hand that's holding the book comes off as being a bit flat and the lines near the tips of the fingers give off the impression that the fingers are going the other way. I think you got the right idea with the general hand posing but the lines would've been better served in the middle of the hand to indicate that the fingers were bending a bit to support the hands. The other hand seems alright, though more definition of the wrist and having the thumb more firmly on the wand would help. Don't underestimate the power of ref pics or simply emulating the pose yourself. When it comes to painting, shading really helps when it comes to defining forms. You're getting it, but you still gotta work on it. I hope that sounded at least somewhat helpful. :3

Oh that is something hmm... new to me, i could say, that somebody thinks i've been popular lately. It's awesome to hear that from somebody else- i'm very glad you saw my improvement :) it really makes me happy.

And- woah :faint:
I wasn't expecting a comment like this, with the whole explanation of my mistakes :) It's great that you've seen them and pointed them out. Hihi, you know, while drawing this, i was looking at many reference pictures of hands and i even took the book and held it with my hands to imitate what's really going on my mind. I tried but- heh xD it didn't seem to work out that good. I think in this case, practice and working will make it better.
Thank you very much! It really helped :) and thank you for the tutorial. I want to draw more now! hihi

Well, you're being noticed at least. Not sure if popular, but people are talking.

You have a good start. :) When I feel like I can help, I say something. :)

I HAVEN'T SEEEN IT IT'S SOOO GOOOD
thank you very much for the link ~

besides, Kuroshitsuji is pretty cool, i am re-watching the series for the third time, and considering the fact that i've never came back to any of the anime series so much, i like it a lot :D Also i read manga, have many posters and gadgets... If you'll have time and like dark, Victorian times, you'll enjoy it ;)

oh the problem is in anatomy. i can't draw people together, while i mean their interaction as something different than just standing next to eachother xD

Oh okay. Proper anatomy is really hard. :XD: But I would like to see that you draw them together someday. :) The only way to learn it is just draw. :meow:
