Truly stunning design: love the boots, the simple cut of the dress is elegant. Two questions though: (1) is there a back to the dress, and (2) is that a two-handed rapier? (third question by association: is there such a thing as a two-handed rapier?)
I see what you're saying. Her back seems a way too arched, almost as if it's an inverted C and her feet seem too small for her body to stand on. Something about the hips are bothering me as well but I can't quite put my finger on what it is. Her boobs are a little bit too big for her body type but that's probably just his personal preference or can be explained away as a genetic quirk (which can happen) so I can't really even say anything about that.
Its his art style. its appealing to many. perhaps you haven't watched the Jolly Jack at all before, but I'm pretty sure someone who has worked as a concept artist in the video game industry with the likes of Rare pre Microsoft has this under control
There is being critically opinionated..and then there is the very much unhelpful "She looks deformed" There's no "her hips look a tad wide" or "her legs seem to thick" or "her spine doesn't look like it goes that way"
its about as helpful as me leaving a comment on one of your written works "It sucks" or "badly written"
you cant tel me it was a critique because it didn't have any elements OF a critique. .. you want to give a shit comment? you'll get a shit response. Its a style, its not MEANT to be realistic in its design. Go tell Disney, Marvel or DC that they can't draw and their people look "Deformed" its a style of art. Not everyone wants to stick to reality when they are working with their mind.
TLR? When you dont giv a good reason why.. yeah .it DOES work that way. Shut Up
I didn't say I was giving him a critique, I just said I was being critical. These two words do not have exactly the same definition.
When it comes down to it, she DOES look deformed, in that her drawn anatomy does not accurately reflect human anatomy. Her hips ARE too wide, her legs DO seem too long, her thighs ARE too thick, her waist IS too small -- these are all accurate statements, if you ask me. But where this individual did not select "Advanced Critique Encouraged" I didn't see a particular need to give a deep, detailed account of what I don't like about the piece. And besides, if he's as experienced as you say he is, my unprofessional opinion probably doesn't mean very much to him, so my thoughtful, in-depth critique would likely fall on deaf ears.
Please do not put words in my mouth -- it's rude. I never once said this character was badly drawn. I never once said it was ugly or unpleasant. I simply said that she looked deformed.
I'm not entirely sure why you are personally butthurt over this.
