crossbow huntress by len-yan crossbow huntress by len-yan
08-01-2011:

thank you kindly for another DD! i wasn't expecting one ;___;
i'm very happy~

this work is at least half a year old now. it has some issues, as many of you pointed out, but i think it was good practice. if you'd still like to share your thoughts, feel free to (even if it's something many have commented on before, i don't mind~). it's a great compliment for me that you take time to comment!

i read each and every word you decide to share, be it compliment or critique, and i'm equally thankful. i hope you don't mind that i will reply mainly to the comments with concrete questions though.

thank you for viewing this work. if you'd be kind enough to visit the rest of my gallery, be my guest. i hope you'll find something to your liking^^

----------

new character concept art

could do better with some of the details but i ran out of time v___v need to work on my speed..

the crossbow sucks. don't hate me. i'll do better next time '''orz..



learning to work with cleaner colours ;3;

----------

Edit:

okay, since the problem has been brought up by some people, i'll adress it here (cause i'm too lazy to copy-paste the answer to everyone xD). the head is too small. true. i was trying to hit 8 head hight here (which is what i'm expected to use as a standard for my charas now) but i guess i just overdid it a bit ;__; thank you guys for pointing it out and helping me improve. i'll do my best not to repeat that mistake in future works~

...if you still feel the need to tell me about it though (or just didn't read this babble), please feel free to lol~ i won't get mad, i just might not reply xDDD

Edit 2:

okay, just out of curiosity, i checked it with my friend photoshop! she's 8 heads plus heels. so 8,5 total lol

[link] - see? xDD

...i'll still make the head a bit bigger next time v__v

some refs used, including ~zeuez's and my left hands lol

The suggester says: "A lovely depiction of a beautiful huntress. The girl's pose and the choice of hunting clothes and soft colors is unique; giving the girl a motion, like she is ready to aim at her target. Don't forget to check the rest of the gallery of this great artist." crossbow huntress by `len-yan (Suggested by ~Iurgium and *Minato-Kushina) ( Featured by Pyritie )

She looks badass but still very feminine. And the colouring is amazing. Awesome.

Proportions seem fine to me. Imo stick with your instincts because it doesn't look too small. Anything bigger and I think it would look too big.

I say whatever to those people. I dont see it. I like it, the proportions seem ok to me, they are exadurated but it just makes her look like shes tall. If people want to complain about proportions, they should go complain to Oda about Onepiece. [and fyi I love that manga] So yeah.
