Proud Girl by OshunHoneyComic Proud Girl by OshunHoneyComic
This is a picture I did for a community art project that sadly did not pan out. I was going to volunteer in a Vietnamese Cancer Hospital and draw murals like this. While I wasn't able to travel there, I still got this cute drawing from it, so everything's good.

This is half digital and half traditional. The shades of gray were traditional in Copic Markers on Cardstock. The colors were added in Photoshop.

Hi! I found this from :iconprojectcomment:

I think this is a nice drawing, the facial expression you capture is excellent.
I feel you could fix the her arms, hands, and giver her lower body. I feel her torso and arm length looks odd, not enough details in hands, and her head shape seems bit too wide. The lines also seem a bit rough and little too thick. The style of this drawing is good but it seems less realistic due to proportions and less details.
The background has nice color choices, green and yellow, because it balances out with her top’s color, warm colors vs cool colors, and goes with positive emotions, but I feel it could be different; it seems too simple to go with the drawing. I recommend using more complex backgrounds, like maybe a room so the drawing could give a hint about her expression or detailed patterns. I feel your drawing could give the viewers more hints about the meaning of this drawing, such as why you drew or why is she proud. The lighting and shading is good, yet the colors could be more saturated as they seem a bit pale.

I hope that helps! I like the drawing because I feel positive emotions from her expression :)

Thanks for the feedback! I do appreciate it. You're absolutely right! Her hands are super low detail. They're even a bit blocky. And yes, the line width is pretty thick. Next time I'll draw bigger so the lines look thinner in relation. I wasn't too sure what to do with the lower body, or even how much to I just left it out. I'll think more about it next time.
Thanks for taking all this time out to comment! I appreciate the feedback!

Greetings~ I'm commenting on behalf of :iconprojectcomment:

Your drawing was certainly an eye catcher, I love the happy expression of the Vietnamese girl. It's a shame you didn't get to create a mural, it would've been great to have these ^^.
I think the technique you've used is really interesting as well, I couldn't tell you did a digital edit beside the background. I also really like the shading despite it being simple it's a lively way to shade and you seem to have a good sense of how shading works, especially in her face.

The only thing that put me off on this piece is how the girl's body is way less realistic compared to her face. I can understand that this may have been a stylistic choice but I personally feel like the contrast is a bit too strong. 
I think more natural proportions, with this same art style would've worked better. Her arms seem very short and her torso has a strange V shape.

I'm also not really a fan of the background, I think it looks a bit too digital compared to the drawing itself.

Despite this negative points I still think you did a great job, this piece most certainly made me feel happy ^_^

Keep up the good work!

Thanks for the feedback! Yeah, looking back at this one, I do think I should've added more details to her body.

I don't really have a scanner or a good camera to digitize my work, so I always have to do a bit of post-production on the computer. You can see a lot of digital artifacts in the background, because the brushes I used were way too big. Thanks for the feedback, and I'll see how I can use it in the next picture!
