"......I see the assassins have failed."


This is me pretending I know what male anatomy/shading/light sources/guns are. |D



DON'T QUESTION IT, THIS IS JUST HOW HE SLEEPS, OK??



He usually isn't an angry sort of person, but it's probably not cool with him if someone just walked into his room out of nowhere. :iconreaction2plz:

I'm assuming you're just one of Humon's fans that finds it prudent to respond to my harsh comment with another harsh comment. Now you're no better than who you're trying to imitate in a satirical fashion. Way to be.

And if you haven't noticed, this picture doesn't get attention. At all. So your retort kind of falls flat.

Review time!~

"This is me pretending I know what male anatomy/shading/light sources/guns are. |D", good, at least you can see that you did make mistakes, not everyone is perfect, but at least if you can admit it then you can open yourself up to vast improvement.

The most egregious anatomy mistake right off the bat would have to be his left shoulder (on right of picture). The shoulder is much too big to fit onto his arm correctly, and doesn't correct in the right place. If you hold up your arm, note that your arm should connect to just a little higher than your upper sternum and right below your clavicle (boobiez area). The upper shoulder area is also a bit too long, so trim that area and the vertical length of it by about half, while having it connect closer and farther up along the body. The wrist is also a tad bit too thick, remember that the wrist is practically the narrowest part of the entire arm. One good thing though, is that your hands are fairly decent, so great work on that. His right shoulder is much better connected compared to the other, and I can see that you have a good understanding that the back continues up past the arm connection and doesn't just stop right there (a mistake a lot of artists can make).

His waist is bending at an unnatural angle, remember that those lines on his front that continue until just about your v-lines start are his ribs. The way you have it drawn, his rib cage is starting to collapse into his center, crushing all of his organs (youch!) The ribcage needs to be drawn a little bit wider to make sure that the poor guy doesn't rupture all of his innards. His hips also aren't quite proportional to his incredibly wide shoulder stature. They should just a little be wider to make sure that he isn't too heavy. His v-lines are also a bit too wide apart, this is where the legs are attached to the body. As you have it now, he is really skinny legs up top that widen out into thicker trunks, this is hard to get right so just practice a little bit. I would suggest you look up a reference by that might be considered porn by people who aren't familiar with artistic nudes and I seriously don't want to get you in trouble! Also notice that his left leg is thicker than the other.

He either has an extremely large cranium or really poofy, "shampoo commercial girl" hair. Reduce the hair volume by about half and you should be in the clear. Now let's talk about non-anatomical things. What I assume is his belt is incredibly blurry and needs to be more defined as it took me a couple seconds to realize what it actually was. His waistband is also a bit unnaturally tight, if you notice his right hip has quite a large indent in it from the waistband squeezing into it. The gun is fairly decent as guns are EXTREMELY hard and annoying to draw, definitely much better than what I can do at the moment. Now the coloring looks like it was done using the dodge and burn tools? If this is true, PLEASE try to wean yourself off of using this method and it makes the entire picture look smudged and blurry. It can drastically reduce the overall picture quality and prevents you from learning valuable blending and color skills that can vastly help you improve and implement into future works. Your light source is actually quite consistent, shadows and highlights seems to be in the right position for the most part, so excellent work on that.

Sorry for being such a meanie :(, I always feel like one after I review something.

I want to start out by saying thank you! Wow, you went above and beyond the call of duty for this critique! QvQ

I'll definitely keep these things in mind. My anatomy understanding is still pretty novice, so I really appreciate your feedback. :D

And I don't really use the dodge and burn tool at all, and I instead try to emphasize light source by picking a lighter color than the base color I used, and darkening it from there. But I probably did something wrong during the paint process. Maybe I can find a few tutorials figure out how to make it less smudgy. XD

Once again, thank you SO much! Your critique wasn't mean at all, so don't worry about it. c:

Yeah anatomy is always that one thing that makes or breaks an artist and takes long hours of practice and studying before you finally get it right. Pick up some human anatomy books at the library or Barnes and Noble and something and just try doing reference pieces first, start with the bones and work up from there. The internet (and dA especially) have numerous tutorials for these kinds of things. I'm also a beginner at anatomy but I've started studying it more in depth recently and noticed things that I would have never even though of before O.O . The human body is incredibly unique and does a lot of things you don't expect it to haha.

I'll definitely try to find a good e-book on anatomy, then. c:
