+Breathe the Higher Air+ by Chukairi +Breathe the Higher Air+ by Chukairi
FULL VIEW PLEASE

I want to swing and swing higher.
I want to reach the sky and fly with the birds.
I want to breathe the higher air,
and look down on the world in a higher view.
I want to reach the stars and breath the higher universe.
I just want to keep swinging.
Swing higher and higher.


~+About the Art+~
Well....I always want to draw an art where a person is on the swing, but I never attempt it cuz the anatomy structure was too complex. This art came on it's own. I started drawing the girl's face and that was the result. However I am a bit disappointed in the legs. ;_;''
I tried to ask my teacher for help, but I didn't get much. She made fun of me always trying to draw really complex art to challenge myself. =_='' I guess. So my first attempt in drawing sitting people.......AND I HATE IT.
XD

but the coloring was ok. It wasn't as fun as "Angel of Mercy" but everytime I color my art I find new ways of coloring it. Either way I hope you enjoy the art. :D

I really liked it. But I was sad that not many other people did. But I asked a lot of people for advice, but they didn't give me the answer that I wanted. Like how to fix the legs ect. But She was really beautiful, so I didn't mind the flaws...I also thought that if you looked at people on the swings they actually look like that...but I guess I have to be harsh about my work. <= )

I think that the main problem is that her hips are too high, and while it is almost possible to see that the area in between must be her knees/above, it doesn't look right, and would mean that the swing seat must be tilted almost verticall. If you brought the torso down so that the hip/waist area ia about level with the knees?
Oh wait - I see, I thought her knees where about where the leg meets the skirt. In that case your directions are better, but her legs are just too small. Maybe try having her sitting slightly sideways, so she's facing you, but her knees go off to the side? (Assuming you retry this :D)

Otherwise lovely, the swing is nicely detailed and the hair and robes swirl very well, and I like the colours. Not too fond of the background - looks too cut and pasted/oversized compared to the delicate drawing.

:O_o: I faved it because I liked it, I wanted to look at it again, and it gave me ideas.
I added crit because it was something you mentioned and because I was trying to figure out what looked odd to me, and to help (even if it is only my point of view) for next time. In fact, I was looking more carefully because I liked it, and thought it was good despite things I didn't like so much.

It's reeeeeeeeally pretty. :wow: the only real problem is that you drew the girl from the percpective that you were slightly above her and the swing as though you were right beside it...unless she's falling off the swing...I dunno. The outfit is GREAT. Really creative in design and the folds look real sweet. Not to mention the colors look amazing!

A swing! :omfg: So much fun!!!
Yeah, drawing people sitting from a straight on angle can be weird because of the foreshortening of the upper legs, especially when their feet are danging...I think you did well, though.

Great work on the colours! I like the soft yellows and how they fit with her hair :D

The only thing that bothers me are in fact the legs, drawing sitting people can really drive one nuts ^^;

There are some nice stock here on DA of girls sitting on swings, they can help a lot as references, even for manga style :nod:

Keep up the great work! :wave:

The anatomy looks very good to me. Perhaps a deeper bend in the cloth around her waist? But otherwise, everything is lovely.
