My littlest brother (11) and I are very close. He loves anime, so as a Christmas gift, I want to draw him as an anime character. I drew a sketch on paper and will draw over it on my tablet to make it look nice and official.
But before I do that, I'd like some constructive criticism because I don't normally draw in this style that he likes.
I plan on rotating things and playing with the proportions once I've put it on my tablet- so please point out any flaws you see that I can fix. Thank you!
Hate the artstyle. Can't just increase the head size of an adult and call it a kid.
Draw the hands, lazy.
Perspective is way off. Too many flaws to point out.
Eyes too close.
No hair part.
>Try harder next time.
Got it- I'll make the eyes further apart and head smaller.
drawing cartoon hands isnt difficult, i just don't know what to even put in them... Would it look awkward if they were just dangling next to him or something?
Lil bro doesn't have a hair part.
Also not sure how to fix the "style"- he specifically wants something anime.
Any other specifications? I can literally change the proportions/rotate/redraw anything here so specific things are helpful and nothing is "beyond saving".
He's a kid and I'm no artist so there's no need to be rude with your critique- I'm just trying to make my kid brother a meaningful present.
perhaps you should google "how i can draw teh anime?" and then it will show you, since there is a specific way to draw anime. unlike western cartoons, there is a standard way to draw anime.
I looked at a few of those and tried to keep them in mind as I drew-
I guess I got confused since there are several different styles of "anime"
Is there anything you can specify that stands out as "non anime/ out of place"?
here some instructions from your friendly ngeightborhood spipderman
its showing different proportions. for adult kid and baby. notice how they are not the right size, but they look the right age for their prportoins.
