so...i neglected school AGAIN and decided to work on this for 2 days straight. LOL.

soo....this is amber, a mascot from fanime and this "thing" is my submission to :iconfanimecon: .

ugh, i had originally planned to this when i heard about it last month, but completely forgot about it until 3 days ago when i came on to check my messages.

sorry if it looks rough, but i wanted to submit it in time. not to mention working on this one's been giving me a headache. and my lineart's shot to...a land where lines just dont match anymore. D:
i do like the basic composition and patterns! yaaaaay! <3 i planned on using textures but that epic failed itself. D:

ps: used last year's design as ref and base.

hope you enjoyed this. crit. appreaciated.

used patterns:

i like it, except for the design of the shin guards, they are just a bit strange XD

lol, yeah. i didn't know what to do with them, I was thinking about doing it like a weave, but it didnt turn out like that, lol. maybe it would've been better if it was just a metal plate or something.

I really enjoy this picture, I think its very chic and very intruiging. She really stands on her own two feet, if you know what I'm saying.

I like the purple, I think its an excellant choice for her. She seems like a purple person. ^^ I also enjoy her outfit much, espicially the shin guards. Thats not something you see everyday, and its an essential part to her outfit.

I do see what you mean when you say that its a little rough looking. Understandable. I think I'd tear my hair out if I worked on something for two days.

My favorite part of this picture is her hair. I LOVE it when hair is drawn like this. It looks very feminine.

The only think I wish is that it was just a little sharper, it seems the image is somewhat blurry.

Wonderful concept, though. I enjoy it very much!

thanks so much for the crit! <3
your comments are highly appreciated. :D

the pic is a bit blurry because once i got all this done i blurred the outline a little so it wasn't as rough and lightened the lines, lol. i realized after it looked a bit..."watercolor-ish".
or maybe its the file-size because its originally like 1024 by some other number, lol and its been reduced to something like 800.
but yeah its blurry, lol.

and thanks for the comments on the outfit. when i draw i usually focus on the clothing design so im happy that someone likes it!

thank you once again for the comment.

as you can tell its made me happy. :D

Sure! You deserve it! I'm really enjoying making good comments!

Ahh, I see. So the blurring was intentional. ^^ That clears things up a bit. (No pun intended! ^^ ) I think I like how it looks watercolor-ish, its really unique and bold in its own way. I like it a lot!

I have the hardest time with outfits, so I'm always searching for techniques from other artists, and I think you did an excellant job.

And, you're welcome for the comment! I'm very happy I made you happy! :XD:
