I'm like, new. I don't know if this site's for paintings or photoshop, but I don't have photoshop and I'm not proud of the paintings I do ever. if my art's not supposed to be here I'll leave then.
just looking to get away from DeviantART. as quoted from a friend, who was probably kidding, "a bunch of stuckup elitists post their art, ban anything they don't 'feel', and pat each other on the back"
a commission done for somebody on a pet site, did this in Flash.
done in Flash, again. I see a bunch of things wrong with it. the right leg is too short to me, and the backpack (or Poltergust 3000) doesn't look right. also, the right thumb bothers me lol.
I think these look pretty awesome! Cant wait to see more!

Welcome to CA! Well CA seems centered on art in general, traditional or digital. I think they'll give you some advice on whatever you choose. Anyhow, your pieces.
The first one, the pattern that's formed where the red meets the white feels like it gets pretty messy around the face, and feels like it drags down the piece a bit... actually around that area, it looks like that 'digital break up' kind of feel they use in some cartoons (none in particular I can think of at the moment.)
I like the second one, but it's still got problems... like you mentioned. Well the thing with her thumb is, it looks broken. Try bending your thumb that far back... okay, don't actually, but it should be straighter anyhow. The backpack looks strange IMO because it lacks tension. That strap that's in front has too much slack, and you could probably add some detail to the pack; it just looks like cloth wrapped around a box. As for the other leg, I think you might want to start the knee up a bit higher, that might fix some of the shortness. Well, the last thing I'm not too sure about, take it or leave it, it's just something small but it looks like she could use some 'hair' in the back. She's got like bangs up front, but 'bald' in the back, though it could look kinda awkward if she had a whole head of hair.
Writing with a mouse isn't fun so I'll to you what it says. 'add hair in back' 'more tension' and 'thumb is broken'
Drunken Sketches - crit me, crit me
thanks a bunch! ya, she doesn't have hair in the back; strange, I know lol.
next time I draw that backpack I'll add more details to it too
Hi Mystafreya and welcome to CA!
These look pretty good,
Your flash skills are pretty good, and it looks like you plan out you characters well.
I agree with Drunken hand that the pattern on the first image gets a bit messy around the face, but a part from that its a good peace.
And I would not change much on the second one apart from some shading
And I would say that you'd benifit be useing photoshop, so maybe D,L a Trial version.http://www.adobe.com/downloads/

I like the drawing of the dog a lot, but the scribble edge between the red and the white/gray is really a different kind of style than the drawing is actually done in.
You must stay true to your style throughout. Otherwise stuff sticks out like a sore thumb.
One more thing about the dog... your line weights are the same all around the dog. You have to get some expressive variation in the line widths. Gotta go thick sometimes so the thin seems cooler. Often times cartoonists make the line outlining the underside of an arm thick and the overside they keep thinner... because its usually closer to the light, so the line is made lighter/thinner.
I'm looking at the second drawing and the same thing... all the same line weights.
At least Icarus tried!
