I tried to do it an extreme angle....but i feel like i could push it even more or its just not balanced right.  Oh time.


  1. Holy shit you reeeaally pushed it this second time around!! Nicely done.

    I really like the fingers. I think the thumb is a bit off even if its stylized. I think it is the bend thats not working in it. Also, if the thumbnail is more to the side, it would look better I think. I think her right arm is still a bit weak. It just isn't as dynamic as everything else. It feels a bit lazy at the moment.

    In terms of how to push this picture even further, I feel like drawing her head almost feels unnecessary. It's almost a distraction. I think illustration wise, conceptually, it would be stronger if you took out her head all together. Just a neck that vanishes at a point. Then all the attention is on the hand. The audience would then see the hand as the 'face' of the image and project even more personality onto it. Hope that makes sense.

  2. Very brave angle but I like it :) I really appreciate the colour choice as well, I feel as though if you'd gone for black and white it would have fallen flat for me.

    I agree with Wei, her right arm feels weak like you were playing it safe. If her elbow was jutting out more as if she wanted a more intense grip on her right headphone it might make it a little more dynamic.

    I really like the scratch quality of your linework and feel like you made some really great choices in what lines should be re-emphasized and have dominate (such as the edge of the table and her bracelets so you get a nice pause before your eye goes further up the picture).

    Her thumb is bugging me a bit and her nails look as if they're tiny and just barely handing onto her fingertips. I don't know if this is what you were going for stylistically but it was just something that was nagging at me, especially since her hand on the record is the main focus of your work.

    1. Thanks for the feedback guys! I really appreciate it and they're all great points :)
