You have a very energetic and refreshing style.

Although your title and text places the piece in context, my first thought was that she was welcoming rain after a long drought. The half-disc of white suggests the hot sun of a midday Summer sky, and the sandy orange suggests dusty dry adobe. The brushstrokes of black spoke of mud joyously kicked up by dancing feet, and the ink speckles told of the admixture of rain and dust.

It reminded me of growing up in the dry foothills of the Rockies, and running out into the yard, dry grass crunching underfoot, and spinning in the raindrops of a brief sunshower. There is a word for the smell of rain on dry earth, petrichor, or something like that, and I have to say that there is something sanctified in the experience of that smell.

Thanks for bringing back fond memories.

I'm born down in the dirt,born with mud in my eyes
Born kicked in the teeth born a loser in life
So put me on the pedestal so everyone can see
And listen to the gospel of the living mokery.
Yeah...
I will be,Yes sanctified!

Here's a link about the harmonic armature or armature of the rectangle applied to portrature [link]

You can join wetcanvas, it's a forum where I met the best in their fields, even the famous ones. If you're looking for serious critiques on your works I think you'll get it there.

Hope this helps :)

Integrated sila sa facebook at twitter kaya malawak ang audience. Si Meng To ang founder at coder ng site. Galing din sya dito sa DA, 7shadows ata ang username nya.

Meron Pacquiao portrait dun (digital) pero pag di hamak na mas magaling yung sayo bro. Pag nagpost ka dun, siguradong 1st round knockout agad ang kalaban. he he he :)

Hey bro, I got some suggestions here.

1. The left hand should be smaller because than the right because it's farther.
2. The tilted head does not follow the lines of the body. You can either arch the body more or make the head slightly less horizontal, with the forehead tilted a bit forward and slightly higher than the chin.
3. you can improve on the composition using harmonic armature (armature of the rectangle)

The expression you're trying to convey is brilliant, just needed some tweaks to make it more dynamic and powerful. I haven't done figures for a long time pero I have a similar drawing back in art school so I'm just sharing you some corrections I received back then.

Just my honest opinion bro, I could be wrong you know, no offense meant, just trying to help :)

ayos sa detailed critique ah. eto ang kelangan ko, hehehe, yup medyo di ako satisfied sa end result nitong piece as di sya ganun ka proportion. eto ang isa sa mga mahihirap na positions i-pull off. still a lot of room for improvement, kaya pansin mo karamihan ng works ko eh close up hahaha, obviously hirap sa anatomy :D thanks man!

Alam ko meron digital version ng wooden mannequin na pwede mo i-pose kung paano mo gusto para tama ang proportion. Nakita ko sya sa wetcanvas dati di ko na lang matandaan try mo na lang i-browse yung FIGURE channel dun.

salamat bro sa mga tips, pinag pala akong nakilala kita meng. hahahaha, ayus bisitahin ko lahat ng sinuggest mo, kase gusto ko lang talaga ng exposure at mag improve.

nga pala tol, nag hahanap ako contributors sa fresh doodle group, gusto mo ba? kelangan ko for recruiting at pag tanggap ng members. pero tol yung magagaling lang gusto ko sa group eh, kaya ikaw siguro mapag titiwalaan ko sa ganyan. kung meron ka man nakitang artist sa group naten na bano, di pako mapili nun. pero ngaun mapili nako at strict sa members, dapat malupet talaga hahahah! ano tol, you up for the job? sana pde ka :D
