Ok I just uploaded my first avatar on this site a few hours ago and would like to seek some comments. I personally feel something is missing/wrong with it but cant quite put my finger on it (it just doesnt look good enough). I put this avatar together from two screencaps of Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko episode 3, as well as this image: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/7808038/108095.png

So, pls give me your comments. Thinking of make a simple siggy next, when I feel like it, in roughly the same way (grab random pics and put together), so some ideas would be helpful too :D

So did you draw her?

The reason why it probably doesn't look right is because she was drawn lying on some sort of surface, like a bed or couch. Having her propped vertically in the air like that with nothing against her back makes it look a bit awkward. Other than that, good job.

Nope I didn't. I'm too noob for that ><

Thanks for the comment. I guess it is because of the lighting right? ,since I rotated her it looks like it comes in from the side.. Maybe I should learn how to draw so I can avoid these things..but I dunno where to start /hmm

first of all its obviously not right
using that background your supposedly to make a character or an object falling from the sky
second is that the character's position is not right or unfit to the background
third you should put feathers effect for better background falling from the sky

lastly i dont like the sea blue i want it red


Lighten your name by using opacity 20% below to become watermark
An example is my current sig. if you manage to see my name there, you have good eyes
