so on tumblr i'm doing this 30 days of improvement thing


I've never drawn an underwater setting before, nor have i drawn misty, so i figure i might as well do both

i LOVE how this came out. The colors came out just like i hoped they would.

Greetings :)
I will try to provide a fair critique:

The thing that caught my eye in the thumbnail was the pose. It's dynamic, has a great perspective and looks just the way you'd imagine yourself after going in headlong :)
very good!

The colours are also nicely done, and fits the setting perfectly, being watery and all.
It looks comic-like, which is a good thing considering it's a fanart of a manga!

Room for improvement would be the hair, as I'd imagine that being a little more out from the head, floating about, and maybe the face expression :)
These are minor things though!

All in all a good deviation!
I will give an overall 4 stars, with originality being 4.5 because of the pose and underwaterness :D

What do you think?

dang i forgot to press add comment....
ok i really like how you drew her, its just like perfet, besides the back leg
i see what you are trying to do but it kinda bothers me maybe it being back a little. Did you paint or photoshop this?
i think i see 2 layers of bubbles, the ones infront of her and one behind her but they are the same size maybe varying slightly, i would like to see maybe bigger bubbles tward the front

I drew and colored this all on Paint tool SAI, yeah. And i definitely see what you mean about the bubbles, for sure, but i'm not sure what you mean about it being "back a little"? It might just be me being dumb, idk xDD

The back leg really irritates me as well. i think it might be the foot? idk. But i do know it is pretty wonky.

Anyway, definitely thank you for the critique, and I'll try and work on this some more.

being back a little, hmm
maybe you will understand visual planes it seems there are bubbles in 2 dif planes but there are infinant planes on the actual picture you did, i guess maybe like 4 layers of bubbles would have done it for me, cant wait to see what it looks like if you decide to fix it ahaaa
