Otohime - recent by redadder515 Otohime - recent by redadder515
This is my own character, Otohime.

I added her oar/blade (I didn't like the sai, didn't fit her personage).
I also added a turtle, (hint: a mode of transportation; don't worry - it's a larger turtle who will carry her.)
:D

:worker:Artist at Work.:worker:
If there are some anatomical changes needed to be made, then please comment now and tell me what needs to be changed.
I added some anatomical changes and toned down her outfit.
Thank you for your comments.

reminds me of the legend of Urashima Taro. there was a princess named Oto Hime in it. She used to be a small turtle.

I actually drew inspiration from that legend for this character. Good job noticing!!

The colors you chose for her hair, skintone, and outfit are gorgeous together! I love the lilypad hat, too :D

I'd say that overall this is pretty good. Keep working on shading and anatomy, though. The colors here are the only real problem. There is no contrast to set anything apart. Everything is...blue! :D So, I'd research into some basic color theory as well.

I understand the lack of contrast and certain shading problems.
But what anatomy issues are present? :?

:icondrextalorr:
drextalorr Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2009   Digital Artist
Nothing too major, namely: The head is too big, and her left arm shouldn't be seen at that angle like it is. Little things that just take away sometimes. Keep practicing and I'm sure you'll get it down pat. :]

With the hat, I was going for a lily pad look.

great colors, it gives me the feeling that i'm looking at the wide blue seas. The only thing i noticed that the line are a bit vague. For the rest, great job ;)

So, the line art thickness just needs to be consistent. OK.
I'm glad you like the colors.

This picture isn't bad. I thing the anatomy is fine, you can't really see much of it, so there's no real obvious flaws! ^-^ You did a very good job coloring the character, although the water more looks like a wave of paint! ^-^ Not at all transparent like water. ^_^

Yeah, I know what you mean about the water, it doesn't have that aqueous feel.
Thank you for the comment about anatomy. That's always been a concern for me, (in particular body proportions).

Water is a tough one, but your anatomy only looks bad if the head's too small, or the general lengths of things or are wrong. ^_^

this would cool if it was just a line drawing have you done any like that?

It started out as a line drawing and then I developed the sketch in Photoshop. Actually most of these in gallery started out as sketches. I don't really let any of these stay as sketches except the ones in my scraps. :)

Yeah, I was working on her as a OC for a web comic I'm working on.
I had two designs I'm working for what she would look like.
A lot of people of seem to like this design more. :D
Although, I'm glad you liked the other design as well.

lovely character design! the only suggestion i wish to make is that you empasise the shadow and light on shapely parts of the peice, it will bring it to the next level and make the colouring less flat :heart:
