red circle rave by divi red circle rave by divi
yeah i kinda fail at titles lol...

This drawing of Reirei, well the sketch of it was done last year for this Rave project that *runeechan was going to have that kinda disappeared (i have no idea what happened with it ;_; ) and Reirei was supposed to be the DJ in it.

I forgot about it until i went in one of my sketchbooks and found it this summer and decided to color it, for one of the bag designs (last minute) for the little canvas bags Vv and I sold at Yasumicon this year. There were 4/5 bags and i think i sold all but one.

Anyway i was trying to get a cel-shading feel with the coloring and ended up going all out and crazy with the hair. I didn't forget the red tips at the end this time. Yay.

Anywhoo~ Thanks for looking and if you can give me some C&C. Because i like advice on how to improve <3
Is it me or is dA submission process getting more complicated?

I like it a lot. The only thing is that her right arm looks a little stumpy.

C+C: The face looks a biiiit too close to the chin. And the tilt of the eyes seems too close to the corner of the mouth.

Regular comment: OMG, I love how it's only the hair with detail. And the hand on the turntable is beautiful.

And yes...it IS getting more and more complicated. -___-;;;

well, one thing is that when arms bend, they overlap. :3 Hope that helps.

Hmm, The only points I would mention is the face, the left arm and the turntables. I'm unsure if you used a reference for this image, but those are the problem areas.

In the face, the chin really is what throws me off. It doesn't give enough space or muscle mass. Almost like ReiRei's face is deformed.

Her right arm, (left as a viewer) is also weird. I'm unsure if you were messing with perspective, but it's off, which flows into the hand movement, which looks painful.

If there was more attention to the turntables in the image, it would give the picture a more complete feeling. It felt rushed, which spread into the bg as well.

Overall not a bad piece but not the best either.

Ah Thank you.♥

No, I used no reference on anything but the headphones for ideas and the turntables.
Yeah, that arm and gave me a bit of hard time too, especially perspective wise. For the face i think if the eye, nose and mouth were moved up a bit the whole thing with the chin, looking really squised wouldn't bee so bad. Now that i see what your saying.

Yeah i do hope once i get through this last hell of a semester, to go back and tweak a fix things and possible finalize the image. It really was kind of rushed even though i spent many hours on it (coloring that is).

The system does seem to constantly get more complicated.

I'm diggin' those wild purple eyes, though. Those headphones and goggles are also pretty rad. The detail in the hair is also great. <3

im totally in LOVE with the hair!

as for C/C, i know you said it was an oldish sketch, but dont forget to mind the proportions...

the torso and head seem to be correct to each other, but the arms are quite off; the bent one, if you look carefully at the jacket, you can see that it doesn't actually "join" the body; I understand what you're trying to do with the other arm (the one straight/ "scratching"), but if you're going to do that, you need to make sure you add a little bend in the elbow (no DJ actually has their arm rigidly straight), and make sure you shade it correctly.

im pretty envious of your hands... i can't draw them to save my life sadly... and i can clearly see that you put quite abit of effort into this (even if you say you didn't!)... keep it up!

wow i did good on the hands you think? I drew it over a couple of times, after finding the sketch.
Oh thank you for the tip on that arm :3 I could never get it right, every time i tried, and for some reason i couldn't figure out what i need to fix or do to it to get it to work.
