Very Kawaii? by Nienri Very Kawaii? by Nienri
Trying out new colouring styles - I can't say whether it's going swell or not. At least I'm getting stuff done? ^^;

Anyway, hii everyone~

Yes, I managed to finish another artwork. In about 2 days. A PERSONAL RECORD HAS BEEN MADE, Huzzah! :dummy:

It's Gumi~ Though it looks almost nothing like her. OTL My cousin (who had been watching me drawing) kept saying the eyes were too big. In the end I almost kicked him. XD (Violence is not the answer Jen! But geez.)

But yeah, I'm going through a bit of a colouring slump lately. I don't know whether I should stop colouring for a while and work on lineart, or just try different styles of colouring. OTL

I'll figure something out somehow.

Until then though, please bare with me and my slump. Hey, at least I'm working faster, right? XD

:star: Thanks for viewing~! Comments, Faves and Critiques are greatly appreciated! (Even if I don't always say thanks, it still means a lot to me. ;w;) :star:

Bye bye 'till next time!

I guess I'll write a critique while my premium membership still lasts (today is the last day, since I'm going on hols with no internet!?) so here we go:

This captured my eye when I first saw it in my news feed, probably because the colours are really bright and saturated, but also because of those eyes. Those large shiny eyes, commonly used in a typical shoujo manga, you've recreated for Gumi in anime form. She's cute, but the eyes really are overdone and affect the piece hugely.

I have to agree with you about how you're in a colouring slump because it isn't your best so far, but clearly it's not bad either. I like how you coloured her clothes, but the eyes and hair seem to have changed in a slightly negative manner. I really like the simplistic background though, especially the reflection because it makes the floor look really shiny! Clean shiny glassy floors we all love, so nice work there! Gumi's shadow helps build up the shadow, which is nicely done.

Well, I do think that she resembles Gumi. It would have further distinguished her as Gumi if she had her signature goggles, because if you hadn't said so, we could've just assumed it was any old girl with snazzy green hair ;) Oh and one last thing, the anatomy is pretty good (as usual) but her arms look a bit too short; even if it is at a different angle, it looks a bit odd. Sorry if the critique sucked, I'm still getting used to writing them~
What do you think?
