White Harpie by Yuuza White Harpie by Yuuza
And another drawing from my sketchbook :D this time it's a sort of harpie, the mask symbolizes a bird beak, i hope you like it
it took me 2 hours to draw and 30 min to edit in photoshop. I used mechanical pencils to draw it on an A4 paper, you can see most of my tools in the photo :D:D

Okay.. been a while since I last did a critique so here goes nothing.

I'll start with the subject of the drawing itself, this beautiful little Harpie. Very nice proportioning, amazing attention to detail on her feathers, her hair looks almost as if it's actually being blown in the wind! Her face is also especially striking, her eyes practically drew me in immediately with their soft yet sharp, almost predatory focus. Her lips look like they were taken straight from a monochrome photograph due to the clarity of detail on them! Another very well done portion of the drawing was her gown or dress which, while for the most part hidden, you took the necessary time, however long it may have been for you, to give the material tangibility and depth.

I really can't say much about the background other than that it is simplistic but effective in highlighting the main focus of the image.

Hopefully you find this critique helpful or at the very least encouraging.

I love the detail on this piece. I also like how the foreground part is done in one style, and the background is done in another. It makes for a nice contrast. :D

I  love the background effect, how do you add the color in your pictures? With ps or with watercolor? *.* I'll definitive try this on my own someday, it looks amazing. Great Work! And oh my the feathers are so detailed and awesome. Wow. ^^
Because you request critique: One small thing I think is odd is that the mask doesn't seem to have anything that holds it in place. But that's just a small detail. And I think the right eye should be a tiny little bit smaller with the nose and brow in the way... hope that helps~

I like the way you've chosen to draw the harpy, it's quite imaginative and interesting. I also like the cleanness of it (although I don't know how much of that is from the editing). Have you tried painting the paper the way you colour it on the computer? Perhaps you could draw a detailed outline and then paint the outside with tempera (I haven't used tempera myself, I'm just thinking of the texture and being able to draw on top of it) before completing it.

thank you, i'm glad you like it,
the paper i am using it especially for pencil use and any water media, ink or oil media looks shitty on it ^^
i could use a different paper, but i like this one for sketches like these, the pencil flows very nicely on it

I am admiring all your art, beautiful !!   But I yet to find what "brand" of drawing tablet you use, you keep referring to A4 or A5 sketchbook.   I love the colored paper idea and me, I like to use my conte'  pen leads to highlight and darken edges.  I like the hard conte' pastels and it looks as though you like using the white.  I have the same pen holder for the conte's leads.  But where does one find the color paper you use ? I have various colored pastel paper,  But I've never seen it in a spiral tablet form.

I use wacom bamboo, an older model they don't make anymore. My tablet is nothing special ^^
As for the color part of this draiwng, it's added digitally, the lines are done on paper, with mechanical pencils :D I am now submitting a tutorial on how i edit my artworks, the way i present them to look cooler makes everyone wonder how i do it. It's actually a combination between traditional art and digital editing :D
