  • Artist: Mailay Launirs
  • Description: This is the 1st time that I drew this picture seriously, at first I was bored and decided to doodle during class (hehe), well anyway i first drew the eyes but then thought may be i should try and draw the whole scene but I'm not very good at drawing manga, but I did what I could and this came out.

    I'm not very good at drawing the feet and shoes as you can see.
    But please give me comments ans tips on i can improve this in my future artwork. (^_^)

  • you probably think you could've doen a better job than me or other people, but i'm only 13. Hunz i could do better, and i'm not looking for a challenge. Just stop drawing, if you just want to draw something when you're bored. Drawing takes time, not just "I did this in class when i was bored"
    but keep on practising.

  • the table at the front is birds eye view, if you know what that means.
    the arms are too short, the shading of the ligh in the book sections are different. You should do the same shading eeverytime, from where the light is coming from. The shoulders are a bit high, the neck is too thick. The legs are way too skinny.
    what is up with the hands? you should've tried and draw fingers not just claw hands or something.

  • crap perspective. is the table on its side? with the books glued on?
    the girl is badly done too..
    what you should do is borrow a book on human anatomy, it will help you a lot. those how to draw manga books wont be that good for you as they only teach genaric manga.

  • you need to add more details, as i see, the body is too short and the neck is so short it looks like a girl with disorder a hunchback(THIS IS ONLY MY COMMENT )
    so keep it up and re-draw again......

  • Bust is up too high, arms too short, neck too thick, expression lifeless, hips non-existant, and when have you ever seen legs stick together like that? Plus she's just standing there...it looks unnatural. Perspective is FAIL. You're looking at her straight-on, the table shouldn't be seen from above.

  • The arms are too small, the perspective is wrong (the table is view in top perspective while you're viewing the girl directly. the chest is well...strange...and the books don't look like books. Try again and please practice more. You'll get better eventually.
