Haya by OchreJelly Haya by OchreJelly
This is a portrait of my half-angel character Haya-kashura...who still needs a decent backstory. I drew this entirely because a friend of mine told me I needed more smiling faces in my gallery. To be honest, I liked this one as it was being drawn, but now it just disappoints me...but it's a smiling face, sorta. *shrug*

Done in a few hours...not sure exactly. I needed to do something to take my mind off of stuff...and to re-energize my creativity. I'm still working on commissions. :)

EDIT: Messed with some colours, refined her facial structure a bit...smoothed some lines. Sorry for the resend.

I am glad you like it. Smiling faces are something that I need to improve with yet, and I think this was a step in the right direction (I hope XD) Anyway, thanks.

you might want to lighten the area around her underarm, and show a bit more of her wing on the right side, otherwise, she is beautiful. She has a sort of innocent waiting look. Not to mention being very attractive. Love her hair by the way.

Thanks. The arm/shoulder area is always hard for me. :doh: Anyway, glad you like it...

oh, by the way, the reason I mentioned the area around her arm, is because the lines are a bit too sharp, it makes her arm look to slinder.

She's smiling and she looks pretty as well :) I'm still waiting for you to finish that full body picture of her :D

As far as this image is concerned, I really like your choices of colour- they are cool and peaceful. You always do lovely job with skin shading and the lighting, and this is no exception. I think my favourite part of this image is the round thing on her neck *I'm not sure what to call it, a necklace?* I like the design of it, the texture and the way it reflects the light.

I will finish a fullbody pic of her, someday. I don't know if I will do that one though; I think I am just going to draw a new character sheet of her.

I know.....i always look at your work with enormous pleasure. And although I'm not so afwully populair as you are, I know how timeconsuming DA ican be and unfortunately I can't always find the time to comment all the new creations. But: I saw your new sketch and I like it so much. I'm a sucker for portraits, especially for yours, so tell me if and when you'll be showing it of here...? :bye:

Wow. It's very well done, but I have a tiny nitpick: the breast lines are a tad too obvious. I think they need to be softened and more gradual than that. Otherwise... it's very nice!
