that's nice and I can see you have a pretty clear stroke and that's a good point! but again the anatomy is quite wrong... peculiarly here her bust is too small, her legs too long and her breasts too big... I know that in a lot of anime girls have this characteristic but when you draw those characters you also have to pay attention to the proportions to make big breasts seem "natural" Sweating a little... (even though they still aren't natural but that's another fact ahah )
however I can't say much more of what the comments below say ^^ only keep up :D

I think that if you exercise you'll be able to do that ^^

Hey!  Thanks for all of the positive comments on my site so far.  I certainly appreciate it and am more than happy to provide some feedback on your work.  You did provide links to five pieces of art on my page but I'm going to focus all of my observations on this particular drawing.  Hope that's okay!

I will admit, and since you're at least a semi-frequent visitor to my page you probably know, I'm not an expert on Anime style artwork.  That being said, I will echo what a lot of others have been saying in their feedback; you will almost certainly benefit from anatomical studies.  Clearly that's important.  However, I would like to mention something that I think gets overlooked by young artists: clothing.  While you're looking for anatomical studies make sure you're also searching for reference on clothing.  Being able to draw a figure accurately is very important but it will get lost if you're not able to place clothing on that figure.  Can't draw everyone naked!

Also, I can't help but see that practically all of the drawings you have are of one character.  No backgrounds, no other characters, no storytelling.  That's absolutely fine!  You don't have to do anything other than this if you don't want to.  However, if you do, my recommendation is to start working on it now.  In the work you have posted I don't see examples of how you draw trees or mountains or water or smoke, etc.  The very first letter I received from Marvel Comics mentioned that I needed to learn how to render different objects.  A rock should have a different rendering technique than smoke, for example.  Since you're not showing this in your work I can't tell how you would go about doing it.  If you're looking to get commission requests people will certainly have background requests.  It's important that you be able meet those requests.  Not that you can't use reference.  But if you're only used to drawing figures it will probably be a bit difficult to draw a forest if you haven't drawn a tree before.

Speaking of backgrounds, if you haven't done any studying of perspective yet I would suggest doing so as soon as possible.  I don't think you need to be an expert but knowing the very basics is incredibly important.  While you can probably "fake it" with an organic background, when you start getting buildings involved you better know how to draw a scene and place figures believably within that scene.  It's not necessarily complicated but can be more difficult than it sounds.

You don't seem to indicate much (if any) interest in storytelling but, if you are interested, it's time to start focusing on it.  Perhaps drawing single character "pin ups" is what your ultimate artistic goal is.  If so, that's cool!  If you want to draw storytelling comics, however, you need to get to work on telling a story visually.  Whether it's in a newspaper comic form, a web site, or a printed comic, understanding how to tell a story clearly is VERY important.  If you haven't thought about this before, it might be time to do so now.

I know this is a long-winded response and not really specific to this piece of art of the other four you requested feedback on.  Hopefully you get some benefit from this, though.  Looking forward to seeing more of your work, I think you will be rewarded by being more adventurous, thanks for asking for my opinion!

Thank you very much for the feedback~ I do want to improve much more~

Yes I've been recently told to work on perspective~

Nice!  :D

This seems to be a recurring theme in my comments,
but... Anatomy strikes again.

Keep practicing!  When you compare your art from this year to the
next one, you will see what I mean.Annoying Headbanging Trash Dove Facebook Emoticon
