No.


Tag 4 people and send them a note about it. and no tag-backs!

Fuck you! You're not my real dad!


I'll answer any question given to me. Anything. Given that it's reasonable and stuff.

Copy and paste this and do it yourself if you decide to ask me a question.

I stole this from Pizzasomething.
An outline of what seems to work.



I'm going to use :iconsixonesixone:'s [Request] Shaney's Playtime by sixonesixone picture as an example. Why? Because I've been too nice lately and I need someone to completely hate me. Hate fuels me.

Let's pretend this is a dA note I sent.

"Hey, 6161!
How about this September? It sure is a month!
I was looking at one of your pictures and I thought I'd offer some unsolicited advice!
It's not a horrible picture by any means! I think it's very cute. It just has tiny things
that jump out at me.


The biggest one is the perspective. The deck (?) looks like it's pasted on top of the
picture rather than resting on the ground. I used the boy's foot as a starting point
for the perspective fix. If you follow the direction of the plain he's standing on, you
can sort of figure out how to draw the deck. The between lines for the boards
shouldn't be parallel. I just fucked up because I'm still rusty using a wacom tablet.

The ball has some slight error with the ring around it. I say let that shit slide. These
freaks aren't going to be focusing on it anyway.

The MLP toy feels pasted on as well. Now that you have a rough idea of where the
plain is, you can bend it accordingly.

The fence felt off somehow. I'm likely wrong in this case. Don't take this too hard.
If you DO lower the fence down, that leaves you with a lot of open sky. It needs a
little something. I was thinking street lights myself. They're easier than drawing a
bunch of trees. Houses force you to think even MORE about perspective.

The grass at the bottom of the fence felt to clean. If you leave some random strays
of uncut grass, how much is up to you, it feels more real. Like that lazy husband
didn't properly weed the fence. Always watching that god damn TV! When is he going
to start pulling his weight around here?!?


The boy pretty solid! It's a few tiny details that would give it a more 3D feel.

The hair looks like it's on a different angle than the rest of his head. Imagine a straight
on photo of someone. Take that hair and put it on a slightly tilted head. That's the vibe
I'm getting. If you "roll" the hair back just a bit, it would look good.
...The more I'm looking at this picture, you were going for motion in the hair? Or a
"needs a haircut" look? Explaining why it's in his eyes?
...Fuck. The more I think about it, his hair should be flipping the opposite direction...

His left (our right hand side) looks skewed a little. Lower it just a smidge.

The shirt sleeve feels a little flat. If you were to shorten them and pull them to our
left hand side just a bit, I think it would round out his shoulder.

The Optimus Prime convoy feels flat. Based on his hand, I'd say angle it towards him.
Adding more of the pinky would help.

The boy looks like he's running around and stopped short of the deck to twirl around.
I'd say lift his left (our right hand side) leg some more. Like he's in the middle of getting
ready to put his other foot down.
...Hmm. You might have to twist his right (our left hand side) foot inward because of the
weight shift.


Based on the ball and the MLP toy, strong light is coming from behind him. His shirt and legs
has shadow in the same direction. It should be the opposite side. I'm terrible at color and
light direction so I can't help too much in this department.

I love your work and am always excited to see what you make next. If you ever get some
time to yourself, I'm sure you're busy with your "real life" (Pfft! Show off!) work on perspective.
It's a thing that makes or breaks a picture.

The lines separated from the picture for clearity:

i.imgur.com/Q8gsqTP.jpg

Talk to you later, gator!"

If you're like me and notice errors later or don't know an art subject, be sure to mention it.
Saves you from coming across as a know-it-all. Artists, if someone can't put their finger on
what the error is, ask another artist. They might be able to explain it easier.

"This asshole said the lighting on the body was off."
"The main light is behind him. Most of the body should be covered in shadow."
"I see what you mean. He's still an asshole."

That's how I do it. Work from the biggest problems to finer details. If there's A LOT of big
problems, save the smaller ones for later. You'll get to them eventually.
I'll have to formulate it all in my head first.
It'll only help if you want to improve over all.
Not just "draw diapers."

Some unlucky winners artwork will be featured (as well as mine).
Don't think of it as a personal attack on you for internet lulz or some shit like that.
I only want you to improve faster than it took me.
I'm still learning. This isn't a solve-all-problems thing.
In the end, it's up to you.
