Wanted to try my hand at this! Although it doesn't hold a candle to some of the stuff around here I thought I'd post it anyway. Crits and comments (especially crits, I want to improve) welcome. :)

Hi Nodachi216

It's not really criticism but more like suggestions and hopefully you will find this useful:

1-choose better base colours for Rukia's face and hair (green isn't the best colour for the reflection on the hair)

2- when you shade the face, choose a colour that is darker than the base and blend it with the base by adjusting the capacity of your brush (you can use blur tool as well). Also use a lighter colour than the base to add a bit of definition to the nose and lips.

3- you can always add some shading to the clothes by using the method in number 2 above

4- the eyes white can be shaded too

I have done some quick touch ups to your pic to show how the suggestions above can improve the colouring a bit \/



Good to have you on the bleach art forum and hope to see more of your work in the future :amuse

Oh god yeah, what you did made a huge difference! Mine looks so... flat. Thank you very much, I'll try to incorporate your advice in the future. :)
