Wow, major improvement from the last one! Much more detailed and well done.
What I really like is the emotion that's coming out of this. Fear, pain, and sadness... They've all mingled together and make it quite strong!
There are a few problems with anatomy, but they're really quite minor. For one, and I know you worked really hard on fixing that hand, it still feels a bit awkward. It almost looks like she's clinging to some invisible bar in front of her. I give you major kudos for attempting some perspective work here, but the angle of the arm is what's throwing the perspective. It looks like her arm is is angled into the chest, which is the opposite of where it should be. Imagine, or even take or find some pictures of, people climbing or clinging to something. Where do the elbows point? It's usually out so that they can get better leverage. So if you just flipped the arm, not the hand, to the other side, not only will the pose be more powerful, it will look a bit more anatomically correct. (:
The hand, while looking much much better, feels a bit stiff. What I usually do, since I hate drawing hands, too, is take a bunch of pictures of yourself reaching out, to help with the perspective and natural pose. As a general rule, when you're reaching out to the camera/audience/whatever, the hand will start tilting toward the camera as well, becoming more straight with the arm and seeing less of the palm. As it is now, it almost looks like her hand is plastered against a wall, which looks stiff and uncomfortable. When you're reaching out, you try and reach as faaaar as possible, which would just change the perspective a tiny bit here. I have to say, though, the hand looks so much better than the first image. The curved fingers and the perspective of the fingernails looks awesome!
And I have to say, I'm really impressed by the background. The texture on the trees looks amazing! And I love how you can still see the roots on the tree in front. And the perspective with those trees really looks nice. If you'd like to adda bit more, consider adding grass or weeds around the roots. It just adds that next level of detail. ;D
Regardless, this is a major improvement from the first one. Really, awesome work!!
lol well maybe you should jump on your bitch cycle more cuz it really do make me feel for this person like this happen for real and thats what i like to see in draw. thats something that i wish i can do in my own drawing, so again great job
Maybe, I just hope that the bitch cycle isn't as dramatic.... the last one was really realy really painful. But I like trying to bring real emotions to my characters, I hope to do more like this one.... especially the background and stuff, it was hard but it was worth it!!
Greatly Detailed, Has well positioned elements of a foreground, middle and background, Emotion in the child in need for help, The hand reaching out, makes me want to reach out and pull the child up too. I think its one of your better pieces, As this came out great.
Thanks! I've been working on it all day, it took me all morning. I started at like ten, and just finished adjusting, I'm going to leave it like this now... I'm happy with it for my first real go at a hand thing. so ^_^ Thanks.
