Bio, I'm just keeping with the gouache black background.
It may not be exactly what I want, but it's what the examiner will want - keeping it like this is my best bet.
So there won't be a background.
I know, logically, there couldn't be a pitch black window with things illuminated in the front, but I like the way it looks. I'm quite pleased with it.
Oh, and I'd be Jack.
Enoch was right.
I love you, Adam.
Looks fantastic, Frogger. =)
Your coloring is great and your lineweights are, as usual, remarkably clean and precise (You pulled off the perspective of the umbrella very well). Peach couldn't be any more cute. Only thing I wish is to see the bending of the arm appear to be more resolved, but overall this is good stuff so far.
Lawl, we have like 3 frogger drawings in the past 10 or so posts. We need more Wiichatters to step it up in art showcases. =(

I'd post my pictures if I had a scanner. Hell I'd post my comics while I was at it
(EDIT: Removed image. Not quite satisfied for others to view yet. =[ )

(Double-Post to inform others I have made the decision since my last post)
I didn't like the old Sakura picture I was working on, so I've been doing another one. Some areas are really starting to annoy me, so feedback might help at this point.
Work in Progress.

I can't really see any need for change there, Bio - however, I can't help but think that the shoes look less realistic than the body?
Hm. Looking good, anyway.
Currently copying a piece by Mark Edwards - 'The man with the balloon'.
Still need to finish quite a lot of this, including the currently incredibly pale man:P
I'm not sure how I'm going to pull off the back ground, behind the trees, though :/
Enoch was right.
Ah. Good eye, my good sir. They struck me as odd, too, but now I can see it's official. Thanks. :]
It might be because the feet are the only thing I didn't dissect from the ground up. I have a search lines layer, a nude layer, and clothing layer. Except for the fact that I flatly drew shoes on the nude, assuming I had the feet understood already. It seems that I should start over on them, working with the feet anatomy before I apply the shoes.
As for your drawing so far, it looks great. Your background has a really nice quality to it since the soft use of your medium works with the snowy setting. I love the contrast in your dark trees and their cast shadows, too. Keep it up.

Wow, I really like your style. As for a criticism, Iunno... The legs seem maybe a bit too meaty to me? But that might just be my Americanness.
It's amazing you picked up that it's snow:P
I was rather worried about that.
I find it strange that you're complimenting the background, when I haven't even started that yet:P
The background, currently, is just the white of the paper.
The sort of 'stream' of grey at the back is, according to the original artist, a Steam Train going past.
I've used HB, 6B and a 7B pencil, and a little chunk of graphite. For the snow, I just jabbed at the paper with the graphite, and used sponge to even it out. So now I know that it was worth the hassle :P.
Enoch was right.
