Aquarius by waywardgal Aquarius by waywardgal
My depiction of the astrological sign, Aquarius. I drew it for my friend a LONG time ago in middle school and when DA had the Draw this Again contest, I started on this... sadly, college drained all my energy and time. Finally finished it on Thanksgiving. Done with mostly Paint tool Sai. Touched up with Photoshop cs5

Resources (Thanks to these devaints, whose tuts helped me create this): :iconminnasundberg:'s water tut ---> fav.me/d4m6ojk
:iconacidlullaby:'s blending tut ----> fav.me/d1i55ag check out her work. it's awesome,
and last but not least, :iconmintwinter:'s water tut ---> fav.me/d5hqw2e

I like the use of colors here, and I'm glad you've used some texture too. You could push the texturing even further.

I do see something wrong with her left hand. Try using photo reference for anatomy.

The composition could be also improved. Now the flow is constructed so that every line leads to her boobs. Or maybe it's just me :D. Anyway, I've written a composition tutorial which might help: [link].

And I love her right hand (well, the left one from our point of view). But the other one is really strange, to be honest :)

not to me. it mightve been hella time consuming but after high school i had no choice but to go straight to work in retail and living on my own. and i gotta say i drew all the time in that period of time before i went back to college... and during that time, i learned nothing. i had no discipline or desire to learn. it wasnt until college that i really appreciated what i was doing and started to learn things i wouldve never have learned without it. so college is good, as stressful as it is, we should all consider ourselves lucky we get to go. especially in times like these. :)

First of all, the finished piece turned out BEYOND BEAUTIFUL!

Second, there are no words to possibly describe how much I love it!

The amount of work and time spent on this is quite evident. You really did a good job. I adore the way you drew the subject from her anatomy to her pose to the amount of emotion exhibited in her eyes alone. The amount of detail inch by inch in this work is unbelievable from the shading of the fabric to the highlights and water droplets! The choice of colours too really brings out the mood, not just the palette of purples and yellows but the girl's eye and hair colour matches everything so well. Overall, I have no real complaints about this piece other than that it's so gorgeous and impressive it's difficult to look away!

I'll stop ranting... That's enough critique for today. Let's just sit back and enjoy the perfection of this work! :clap:

Oh wow, I never got so much love for a critique-comment I made. Most would give me a simple ''Thank you.'' We really need a '':+fav: comment'' option. ;) You're quite welcome, love. :blowkiss: You deserve it for all the hard work you did!
