A commission for ____ and his O'c, model. He asked me to draw angles with specific pose. I changed the hands so the pose is more natural. Except the last one where I left the old pose.
The whole piece is skewed to style; this is /not/ a realistic piece of anatomical study. In anime, the breasts are accentuated, limbs are longer, and the entirety of the body changes according to the style of the artist. I wouldn't critique this on actual anatomical correctness but on stylistic success (if critiques were allowed- the artist kindly requested that they weren't welcome.) Do NOT use this as a basis for understanding the figure! Use this piece as a basis for STYLE. And do NOT begin to draw people stylistically before studying what actual people look like!
This work is very helpful for some artists out there, and it's always good to increase the reference pool of available work to use as a student, but DON'T treat this as something for a serious illustrator working to study the human form! Use this as a style ref only, because it succeeds as one- not an anatomical model.
I partially agree. If somebody is leaving a juvenal comment, or one that’s completely subjective, then yes it’s a waste time arguing with them and you’ll likely get frustrated in trying.
But I wouldn’t say there is no need in responding to people’s opinion as a general rule. If people are mature about their differences in opinion, it’s good source for seeing other points of view and exchanging ideas.
En1gMa92’s comment in retrospect was pretty subjective when she said it’s “that's incredibly rare”, I doubt we were ever going to see eye to eye on that part.
Still when she said “Great art design” I thought she was ready to discuss it on a technical level, and if she could have elaborated on what she meant by “art design”, and what impressed her so much about it, it might have helped me see something more in the drawing I didn’t notice before.
Or if she just said something a little simpler like, “Hey, this looks great” I would have moved on without a second thought.
