Re: SKOTW 1 - Voting
Well, I'll put it in order of like. Don't get me wrong if you are last, I liked all of them.
1. Sakura Drops - I was a little confused as to how this pertained to the theme until you explained it. Coloring is nice and pale, not overwhelming at all. The skin lighting and shadows are great. The person on the bottom left corner was supposed to be a girl (I think) but the person doesn't look like a girl, but like Sasuke. Seeing how girly Sasuke is, I scratch what I said. Girl in top right corner is cute. Hair+shine is great but the blushing was a little sudden. It's also a little unclear. Great job.
2. Gama - ouch. He looks vicious >.> Things that are nice - the arrows, size of hands, his KILL YOU DED expression, and general shading. I didn't quite like the little vein thing on the left hand or how you drew the fingers on the right hand. Shading could be a little more detailed, and the face lineart is just a tad bit shaky.
3. Loner - you're great at lineart. The hitai-ate looks real hanging off of her neck and her hair looks like it does in the manga. Shoulders are nice and her chest is actually in the right place (so many artists put it at her waist or not draw it at all >.<). I love the left hand. It looks so real. Right hand is a little funky at first glance but that was a pretty hard position to draw from, so I'll give you credit for that. I don't see much wrong except that her shoulders are too wide, the expression was OoC (maybe Kurenai or Ino would have been a better choice) and the upper line on the right breast. To be quite honest, you missed Gama by .1 of a point. Your lineart is great but it would have been better colored.
Good job to all three of you!
