So I thought I’d attempt a redraw of this Witchblade pictue, even though I have a hell of a long way to go as an artist myself. More than likely you can see my own mistakes, but that’s the beauty of the redraws - constructive criticism comes your way!
My initial thought was simply that it was an issue of “swivel waist”, which doesn’t make sense either way to me.
This is how I laid out the first problem with the picture for myself
Then the first redraw came along, after which I realised that there were other problems with the original artwork
Here’s how I tried to sort out these issues
And the conclusion I finally came to:
It was easier for me to change her pose to one where she’s sitting rather than standing. Right now I’m dreading to think of where I went wrong with my finalised image, but I hope to get constructive feedback from people!
I think you have a good attitude for your redraw. :) Try your best at it, but also be aware of your own limitations and open to feedback. It’s a good attitude for any artist in general, I think. :)
