Post artwork that's been fixed, red-lined, redrawn, etc.

This is in part to stop the art cow threads from getting derailed. If you want to post a redline of Holly Brown's work, post it here. If you want to post liquefied art of Spechie's, post it here. If you recently fixed your own art work or redrew it, post it here.

All art posted on here is open to critique, so don't post anything you'll get touchy about.

The point is to have a "before" and "after" for those of us who find those picture satisfying or a detailed explanation of why the work is incorrect for those of us who are not artistically inclined.

yes! finally this thread! I mean I like to see these rather than I want to do them, but I did amuse myself making this before. I'm not sure what to do about the horizon. Btw holly brown posted with the comment "yes i fucked up the perspective, here's an edit" (i think implying the perspective was supposed to be fixed)

One of my biggest pet peeves is when people do these "Draw this again" memes and there's no improvement at all, but instead they ditched the generic anime style for a generic tumblr/calarts one while thinking that's a massive advancement. Like no bitch, your proportions are still messed up and you haven't fixed even the simplest anatomy mistakes.

No. 250314

legs are still a bit too long. and the shading is wonky, try to visualize what's beneath the clothing first, it looks like she's flat with a beer belly. also for the hands, try looking at your hand doing the same motion, the thumb and 1st finger are fine but the last few are too stiff and it's uncomfortable to do that irl.

File: 1526620774007.jpg (85.49 KB, 715x1117, chillin_by_spechie-daxe7x1.jpg)

I'm the facetune anon (which was just for fun), but I didn't do any of the others.

You can't stylize until you know the basics. Spechie has absolutely awful technical and stylistic skills. She doesn't understand basic anatomy, line work, lighting, coloring, ect. You can't go "oh but style" for any of that. Her work is shit. That's pretty much a universally agreed with opinion on this site (check the general art thread and her thread on snow). If you wanna disagree, you can, but just know most people are going to think your opinion is shit- because she's shit. If you honestly look at >>250576 and think the left looks better than the right, then yikes. Idk what to say to that.

She can't draw a normal face, the alien bug-eyed with no chin look isn't an intentional style choice, its a lack of skill. The shitty line quality, unrefined edges, poorly rendered and detailed features, etc aren't a choice. They're cause she's baaaad. I never thought I'd see someone defend Spechie's "style" on here, its like defending Holly's. I'm kinda like just shocked.

But, regardless, this is a thread for fun. Contribute your own redraws, redlines, or revised work. Its fun.

(And kek at calling Spechie a "cartoonist." She's a shitty youtube "artist" who is just famous for her spergy rants and edgelord attitude.)

No. 250605

you're worse than her and on top of that you're cringy as hell.(infighting)

No. 250607

how am I worse than her when I don't even do digital art? I just used facetune one time to edit one of her pictures. Chill. Its not that deep.

No. 250625

I dont care about or know of any of these artists. in my field it just grinds my gears when laymen try to criticize modern work when you have absolutely no tools to do that.

she doodles story cartoons. shes not studying from roberto ferri's atelier as a neo-baroque painter, or designing for a functional use, these people are delusional at worst or just doing casual digital outsider works on her non monetized channel, which you'd specifically need go out of your way to see any mention of. shes telling personal stories with doodles because she likes to.

every "fix" in this thread is objectively and equally "bad", with no potential for improvement. you'd need to construct an entirely new original foundation using hundreds of 3-dimensional geometric shapes from the perspective point(s). you cant just warp or blend over it and say its better on those arbitrarily chosen points because you made it look smooth and flat or put things into "place". you're not "correcting" it. you're doing things you personally like which look just as bad.

This isn’t the vent or unpopular opinion thread. People are having fun. And there’s no way you can look at these side by sides and say they’re “objectively” just as bad.
Sorry the thread struck a nerve with you cause of your job, but that doesn’t mean anons’ works are bad.
>laymen try to criticize modern work
>modern work
Kek. So far it’s been fucking Holly and Spechie. You projecting?
>shes telling personal stories with doodles because she likes to.
That’s nice. Good for her. She’s still a whiney cow with no talent.
>you'd need to construct an entirely new original foundation using hundreds of 3-dimensional geometric shapes from the perspective point(s).
Kek what?
>say its better on those arbitrarily chosen points because you made it look smooth and flat or put things into "place".
Anatomy don’t real. Only geometric shapes and “style”

Why so triggered, anon? You’re the only cringey one here. Everyone else is just having fun and fucking about with art. What “field” are you even in where you think Spechie/Holly’s work is “objectively” just as good as the edits? And even if everyone’s work is just based on what they personally like, who fucking cares? Why does it bother you that they’re playing around with art and what they like? It’s not that serious.

I’m not mad or hurt that some anon is sperging out over my five minute facetunes. It was for fun.

The hair in the last one is so satisfying compared to her clusterfuck hair styles.
Hey yeah so you need to work on your edges. The hair doesn’t have any weight or structure. And you also need to work on facial anatomy. The issues from the first are still there (strange eyes, awkward chin, etc) but then you added some like the strange lip expression and tiny teeth. I do like how you’ve colored the cheeks. Work on refining your edges, like making them more concrete and not so blurry and vague.

you need to work on your edgework, your drawing is just one blurred mess. Also you use 1 pixel at a time for hair which is something you should never do. The facial anatomy makes her look aged, i think its the very high nose that has a big gap between ithe lips. Also it could be the way you colored the sking making her look like shes flushed.

Style wise I think the airtight clothing looks better. It's not logical, but gives her otherwise very lacking body structure some flow. The one on the right looks very shapeless.

I would suggest you try to redraw the whole thing with your own underlines and builds rather than drawing and trying to correct over hers.

No. 261683

I don’t think it looks shapeless at all. I think anon did a good job with the structuring of the shadows so it doesn’t look frumpy. Tbh you probably prefer the left because you’re more used to seeing art of women with figures like that.

I tried to tune up this piece too and yeah, its almost not worth saving, the most I was able to fix was the fingers, the chin, and the hoodie, but anatomically this drawing is so fucked up, im not an expert but that hand placement is so weird anyone with eyes can see that, not to mention but so many of the colors clash together, there's no contrast or value, I understand it was probably a simple sketch but there's no excuse for the drawing to look so messed up.

No. 261924

Yeah, the eyes especially are so wonky I would have probably constructed the whole face from the beginning instead of trying to save what was there.

But I think you did a good job on giving the body shape without the sweater looking like it's plastered on. It looks more natural now while still keeping a little curve that leads the eye through the drawing.

No. 276987

I think that no matter how many times that you try to fix her banner, how she posed her avatar is so fundamentally wrong. The way her back bends with her arm resting on it while giving the bunny ears. It probably, in her style, would’ve looked better if her character gave gave the peace sign with both of her hands

it's not perfect, but i gave it a shot. i hate the alien heads that tearzah draws. i think they could be a really good artist if they didn't rely so heavily on stylization. i recall them answering an tumblr ask with something along the lines of "if it's personal, you don't have to improve your art" and… i guess? but she does commissions, so she should really care more about the quality of her art.

No. 277031

Even just lowering the top of the hair down so there's not so much skull up there would work. She seems to have a massive problem with crazily poofy hair that makes her characters look like their face is relegated to their mouth region. And it doesn't help that she draws shoulders to fit the hair rather than the head, like in your redline. It's like every tumblr artist ever who draws clothes instead of the body underneath first, so everything looks proportionally wrong.

No. 277042

yeah, with the first edit I was just planning on lowering the hair. then i went "hmm, this part looks off… and this part… and this one." there's just so much wrong with their art, fundamentally

No. 277202

No. 279299

anon, i cannot tell a lie: i prefer the original with the blush and thicker brows

No. 279301

same. left looks like actual face skin and right looks caked in foundation. i would've gotten rid of the stupid tumblr knee and elbow blush but left the face alone. i also greatly prefer the arched brows to that reverse arch but i guess that's just personal taste.

No. 279305

I really hate super blush, especially red noses. Unless you're blushing, red in anger, or your face is having an allergic reaction, it's stupid to draw like that as a default face. Same goes for those busted up looking red knees and elbows, as if it's normal to have them look like they're about to ooze blood.

No. 279311

It's astonishing how removing the blush makes it look so much better. The extreme tumblr blushing looks always so tacky and gross.

You’re joking…

No. 279748

agreed. Not sure why the brows were changed.
Also removing blush also removed freckles.

I've seen the blush placements in manga art long before tumblr style. The only thing I hate of the blush concept is red noses, especially when in most tumblr art it's the only red part of the skin. The red nose in the original is a little OTT but I agree with the anon who said the blush removal makes the piece look much more lifeless by comparison.

No. 279753

I changed the brows because I thought her original expression didn't look all that happy
But yeah, that backfired and she does look lifeless in the edit
She's still kinda blushing but it's really faint because I lowered the opacity

i wanted to remove the blush from her nose, and tone it down on her cheeks so it looks more natural. i removed almost all the blush from the rest of her, leaving only a tiny bit of color since some people do have slightly darker elbows/knees. though i don't think it's actually noticeable

No. 279954

That's still way too much blush for a normal face and Usagi doesn't have freckles.

Why it looks a bit better with super blush is because this artist has no idea how to make a face without that.

No. 279956

what i want to fix is all those objects suspended in air above her hair. the perspective in this is all over the place.

No. 279967

really? i thought it looked pretty natural. was probably the comparison between the original that made me think so. i don't think adding freckles is a big deal so i didn't bother removing them.

i didn't even notice that at first, but now i can't stop looking at her pigtail and how it lays completely flat when it should be falling off the pillow

No. 279970

Sorry, I didn't mean you did badly. You still did a good job. It's really just the artists problem in the end. It's hard to build upon someone's art when there's so many small, deep flaws that show itself elsewhere. For example, she shouldn't be using that soft shading brush on the face and knees when literally no other part of the artwork has that shading. The rest of the pic has very flat shadows.

No. 279974

I'm the person who drew >>304817

None of the other posts in this thread are mine; I literally dropped the picture here and forgot about it until now.

I think all the criticism here is legitimate, especially the ones >>305299 outlines. My only disagreement is that I don't like how animu your revised face is. I'm not a manga artist- if you're going to critique me, do it based on normal human anatomy.

I agree that I drew his face a little too feminine and his legs too thick, as several anons observed. The mouth is a bit too wide, and the shading needs more contrast.

Thanks to everybody who gave actual critique, instead of just vaguely calling it "fuggly" (nice spelling, retard).

This one looks way more like a chick than mine. No human male over ten years old has proportions like this. Also, the lineart is sloppy and feathery as hell. Am I supposed to be impressed by this?

Having a preference for manga styles =/= observing an objective difference in skill. Yes, this one is cuter than mine, but it's less anatomically correct.

People mostly weren't "shitting on me", anon. I agree with the sentiment as it pertains to the site in general, though.

No. 307864


Salty drawanon, just shut up and don't make yourself look more of a dumbass. Especially when you start throwing a tantrum about your work being ~more anatomically correct because it's "not manga"~ like a pretentious asshole. The source material is trying to imitate the manga bishie style so it's only justified to have the redraw fix that aspect too by making an actually attractive manga-styled hottie male. And still, the original character clearly has an angular face with slim features, your redraw has a gnome face.

No. 309559

100 percent agree. The thing about redrawing Hollys art is that you have to completely start FRESH and vaguely reference hers (just for general shit like eyeshape, hairstyle, build, ect) and even thats janky in itself. Trying to copy the pose and expressions (and muscle/fat mass and distribution) is counterproductive becuase its so fucked. Its like trying to bake a cake with spoiled ingredients, half the recipe and a broken oven.

What I like about this redraw is how gestural it is. The twist really gives it life. You guys are being way too harsh to this person, as usual.

The clavicle is right where it should be? Look at the lines coming down from the deltoids, dumbass.

Sure, on some level a non-artist can sense a problem with the piece, but with no knowledge of the discipline, they can't articulate the problem. I think this is why a few anons are just saying "this sucks," while other anons are able to talk about things like proportion, gesture, value, etc.

It's all well and good if you think a piece sucks, but it's not helpful. The most relevant information is the stuff that follows, "this sucks because".

No. 310313

That's subjective, but for our intents and purposes, it's someone with at least a little bit of formal art education.

technically not much wrong but you could of used more of a gesture line cause it feels kinda like a unbalanced jenga tower. I just made him lil more straightened but i could've pushed the gesture more by: having him lean backwards OR having him arch back and push his tooch out

this, anon here >>316104 just made a completely new character or aged the original for like 20 years. It's obvious the original character is pretty youthful looking with slicked, head-hugging hair with a very slight pompadour, why did anon just draw a 48-year old sitcom actor with a poofed daddy hair?

I'm also sick of people wahhing about "weebs" when they're being told that Holly is trying to imitate the anime bishie style (and failing horribly) and they probably should utilize that in their redlines/redraws but instead go for their own generic style, completely ignoring the source context because m-m-m-muh realism.

this makes me frustrated, we're simply advocating for people to take into account the stylization when they fix art

redrawing in another style is just fan art and dosent help people learn what was wrong/what to fix with the original

redraws are fine and dandy here, i just dont like it when people are like "here! fixed!" because redraws are an entirely different piece just referencing the og

agree. this redraw thread is "her's how holly/whoever could fix her piece" not "here's my piece which is better."
If you like drawing her characters in your style, that's fanart and you should post it on instagram and tag her with the other fans doing that. (I note that if you look on her tagged tab on insta there are about 20 reese chair fanarts and only about two of them aren't better than the ones here)

did a pretty true to definition redraw/trace over spechies bowestte piece that was obviously shit out judging by how lazy it is.

even though i did draw this in a pretty animu style i did try to make the general anatomy and style more appealing vs hers which looks very stiff and heavily referenced.
considering i directly traced over her art and managed to give somewhat better fluidity to the piece just means that spechie just really needs to focus on laying out better basic shapes (those spiky bands and shell lmao) and also pay attention to female anatomy more because how she does her females and males is the same to be honest.
its like she learned how to draw basic male body shape and head and just uses that for all her base art and it just gives all the females she draws an unfortunate aesthetic. her art would benefit a lot more if she stopped with the fucking useless painting studies and actually learned basic form and anatomy first because the way shes trying to get better at art will always leave her shit looking stiff and askew when she does any art that isnt heavily referenced and traced

You've sucked all of the personality out of it. It's like looking at a mannequin with my glasses off.

No. 324343

>feel free to critique

I'll give some.

So the two most glaring issues of Spechie's piece on the left are her color selection and the hair. Her colors are too bright, it's painful to look at. Some bright colors are fine else all art would just be grey and lifeless, but every color she's selected is bright, and as a result they are not in harmony with each other. The other issue is the hair, which features too high a shine when compared to the rest of the piece. You would need very bright, harsh lighting to achieve such a high shine on the hair, and that lighting would give the face a similarly high-contrast look. Instead, the face has a more subtle contrast between its light and shade, and it makes it look like it has no connection to the hair.

Your piece fixes the color issues somewhat. The colors you've chosen don't hurt my eyes nearly as much, but because they are all similar values it also means that there's no point of color interest. I'd have made the eyes brigher to try and counteract this.

And as someone else pointed out, you really overdid it with the blending. The nose has a good level of definition, but the rest of the face and especially the hair is overblended to hell, making it feel like I'm looking at the image through glasses someone rubbed butter all over. I would allow more brush strokes and harder lines to exist within the piece to give definition, particularly to the darkest and lightest areas.

Most of the redraws seem like the artists are trying to get asspats for being as good or slightly better than a famous cow (which isn't really an achievement) . You don't need to be good artist to critisize a cows art but putting your own and not showing/explaining the changes made like drawing a shorter neck, or a better pose, is also pointless.

Also correct, I have studied art to some extent.

For the last time: stop namefagging and read the fucking rules. By the way, your art is shit. It's no better than Spechie's.

are you really gonna argue with someone's subjective take on your art? Accept that the asspats aren't coming and move on instead of making butthurt comments.
While I am NTA, I can see what they mean when they compare your drawing to wikihow art…
Also stop with the namefagging.

The body and coloring is good and shows a better understanding of how clothes and bodies work than Spechie's, especially for what looks like a rough sketch, but the face could use some work. The neck is too long, eyes and mouth too low (she has no chin). I've attached a quick edit of the face to try and show what I mean.

I like this. Anon's version tried too hard to look ~uwu unique~ 0 appeal

The redo of the redo looks so much better. Good job

No matter how good your art is, the people on this thread are going to throw out random insults. I'm sorry but most people on this site are negative and this thread is the worst place to get an honest critique. You're definitely new here so I don't blame you but this site is literally dedicated to making fun of people. I could be mistaken but by the way you're typing you seem underage, and this imageboard is 18+ so the art is held to a higher standard.

Leaving you email here is a very bad idea because it's super easy to find your art accounts using this email. Judging from some of your other works, you seem to be very young, this place is not for you.

i don't think the redline adds anything but stick this in the bad art thread, it's fuarked

Can we make a personal rule for this page in particular- Because a lot of the sperging and infighting is caused by ‘stylistic’ preferences (using this lightly).
If you’re going to shit talk an interpretation of a piece, explain what in particular is shit or use colored lines to prove your point. Not that hard. And those whose going to post their interpretation- for the love of god, remember what site you’re posing on.

This was on the front page of dA. The face bothered me so I tried a 5 minute edit. Made the nose 10% bigger, resized the far eye by 5% and moved eyebrow closer to the bridge.

No. 343472

looks like an improvement. that face on the left is wack.

No. 343479

How do artists do beautiful color, shading, and rendering but then fuck up basic anatomy like this??? Baffles me.

sakimichans art is like that too. she renders skin stupidly well but the anatomy kills it for me. sameface sexy uwu girls are boring too.

Why did you use the skin brush in the hair?
Pretty good besides that.

sloppy editing but I wanted to try and fix >>375164 because I felt like it was… almost good?

No. 375351

… which is the "fix"? Both look horrible.

No. 375359

I'm assuming they mean the texture/bits in the hair when hair should be smooth looking

Good fix though I agree

No. 375360

Good fix anon, they should hire you to edit their art

No. 375366

yeah, they're still both dreadful. if you were going to fix it, you should've started by making her look less like a man

No. 375371

kek my bad clearly, left was supposed to be the "fix"

No. 375446

I don’t see the issue in making both the hair and skin textured, that’s just personal choice in the end not a mistake

idk if I should go ahead and paint over this… didn't realize it was Zelda until I read the file name
I thought it looked fine, I could have used a hair brush instead.

No. 375547

This looks cute anon, but at the same time it looks like her head is too heavy for her body and she’s about to catch it. Easy fix by shrinking it a bit to better fit the rest of her proportions

No. 375553

Thanks! Yeah I noticed as soon as I posted that her hands and is smaller compared to her head, really need to catch that stuff before I post

BJ's design is better than yours, fuck off anon.

Yours looks way more accurate in terms of how she looks. And to me your proportions are more appealing.

‘Ogre proportions’ lol found the weeb

I'm a weeb for sure, but lots of women have cuter facial proportions. This drawing has almost no forehead, a long jaw and the mouth is wide.
