Meme: Before and After [Update] by crys-art Meme: Before and After [Update] by crys-art
Edit: so I decided to redo this after a distance of another two years, it's always fun seeing how far I've got (still a lot to learn though :P)

----

My fashion sense was so strange XD

Wow, and it looks well improved in just a relatively short period of time between 2011 and 2013

haha I was really into shugo chara in the period the first one (2009) was drawn, so it seems that the fashion sense persisted xD

Gotta say, you've progressed pretty well so far.
I'm really curious to see where will your style go in the years to come, but I can say with confidence that watching you here on DA was most definitely a good choice.

Keep up the good work Crys :thumbsup:

Damn, gimme ur skillz.  Q_Q;  I need to do an improvement meme again.  I have a perfect piece sitting around waiting for love, but I think even if I did redo it it wouldn't show this much amazingness.  TT_TT

I'm having difficulty with line weights... any good tips/tutorials you can think of?

crys-art Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
do it do it :la:

hmm well lines are usually thicker at the end where they connect with some other non-parallel line. Line wights are also use to somewhat describe the material of a thing, eg leather will have heavier and thicker lines while a lighter cloth will have thin lines. I usually add thickness after I have drawn the 'form', like for example I draw the fold first, and then see if it needs to be thickened at some point, hope this makes sense!

Yeah, these are some of the things I've been working on... but I get the feeling that maybe my lines are too heavy over all?!  TT_TT  I have such a hard time liking my lineart...

crys-art Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
hmm...looking at your works though I would say your linearts and line weights are pretty good! and they are not too heavy at all either, so I think you're just concentrating on the wrong side :) what I see is that you lack a bit of experience with folds, and really often a single wrong fold may make your art look crappy. I think if you concentrate on that, you'll see a really great improvement!

Folds are definitely a weak point.  =w=;  Thank you so much for looking!  I've been in need of some good advice, but I don't have any artsy people nearby to ask.  QwQ;  Much appreciated.

I really love your style. Do you have any advice on how to get better? Could you give some tips on what resources you studied to get better? Did you simply look at others' work and drew every day? This is an inspiration to me. Thank you for posting.

:iconcrys-art:
crys-art Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Thank you! Well yes, looking at your inspirations and drawing everyday is the most important part of it! I usually concentrate on one area at time where I'm lacking, and therefore look for specific tutorials and observe real life situations, for example when I realize I lack at a particular face feature or particular type of folds, I do my researchers and stare at people when I'm not home haha hope this was helpful :)
