MERCURY STAR POWER! Next I need to sketch in the battle between Jupiter, Mars, & Venus vs. Zarconia and CereCere in the background as the Dead Moon Circus tent looms in the dusk over Tokyo. I'm redesigning Zarconia to be a little more H.R. Gigerish while CereCere is doing some spectacular gymnastics air attack. I'm gonna be an expert at painting and drawing free floating water globs after this painting is finished^^

Mercury Star Power by Aricson
I just returned from Wondercon in Anaheim California! Its always fun connecting with old friends and making new friends at these shows.  I love meeting fellow artists and getting inspired by their work.  Next show will be the big one, Comic-Con International in my home city of San Diego where I will be exhibiting my work in the Comic-Con Art Show.  Can't wait^^

Redraw time! Based on the supportive critique feedback I got I am completely re-drawing Mercury to fix the proportion and anatomy issues not fully solved on the first attempt. Thank you all for the support you have given me on this piece.  I'm scheduling a three month painting process to complete so I can exhibit it at the Comic-Con International Art Show in July^^

In the name of the moon by RikkuHanari
Hi RikkuHanari^^

First of all I think you have a great attitude to want to improve your drawing by learning from others^^ It is the fastest way to improve your drawings and paintings when you ask other artists for a critique and have an open mind what they comment on. I have quickly looked through your gallery and I am very impressed how much you have already learned and grown since your first postings!

One other thing is that I am not a digital artist. I am a traditionally trained artist with minimal digital knowledge, so I will be commenting on techniques that all figurative art shares, regardless if it was rendered in paint or in digital.
What I love most of this piece is how much action and energy is in it. You really captured Usagi’s spirit and designed her in a lovely action pose. I love how you painted Usagi’s nose. It’s so cute! Her smile and eyes are also beautifully rendered. I think her hand looks lovely too (and hands are really hard to draw!) The composition with the moon off centered to the top while Usagi’s head is in the middle adds a lot of interest and beauty. I like that the moon seems to be radiating light giving Usagi a spiritual radiance and how the roses echo the radiance coming from the moon. Usagi looks beautiful, fun, romantic and spiritual. The composition says all this I feel. The design and flow her hair also adds a lot of interest and energy.

Technically I really like how you painted the moon very loosely and Usagi and the roses are tightly rendered. I think the colors work beautifully here too. All the colors work harmoniously and I particularly like the shadows, which are not too dark or too weak. You have a lovely balance between light and shadow.

What I think that would make this piece better is elongating Usagi’s proportions, especially in her torso, left leg and right upper arm. Also, I think her chest is twisted too much toward us and should be face forward a little. You have a couple of anatomy issues too: the biggest anatomy issue in her left chin is cut to high, and I think you should lower it and make it rounder. Another anatomy issue is her pelvis looks too childish, because I think your proportions are too short in her torso. If you elongate her torso, Usagi’s pelvis should look more developed. One other area of improvement is Usagi’s left boot looks to big compare to shorten left leg and her right thigh.

I’ve posed my Sailor Moon S.H.Figuarts figure in your pose to help show you some of my suggestions about proportion and anatomy. I have lit the figure using a 3 point lighting arrangement to give you some ideas about light and shadow. You are more than welcome to use this pic as much as you want as a piece of reference. The link to this picture is posted in my reply in the comments as I can’t seem to add the photo to the critique:(

Proportions are the easiest errors to overlook in a figure and I always ask other artist for their feedback on a sketch before painting it.

I love Usagi too and you have done a beautiful job painting her^^
I hope to see more Sailor Moon and other art from you!

Hola RikkuHanari ^^
En primer lugar creo que tienes una gran actitud de querer mejorar su dibujo por aprender de los demás ^^ Es la forma más rápida de mejorar sus dibujos y pinturas al pedir a otros artistas para una crítica y tener una mente abierta lo que comentan . He mirado rápidamente a través de su galería y estoy muy impresionado lo mucho que ya has aprendido y crecido desde sus primeras publicaciones!

Otra cosa es que yo no soy un artista digital. Soy un artista de formación tradicional con conocimiento digital mínima, por lo que voy a estar comentando sobre técnicas que todas las acciones de arte figurativo, sin importar si se hizo en la pintura o en digital.

Lo que más me gusta de esta pieza es la cantidad de acción y la energía está en él. Usted realmente capturó el espíritu de Usagi y su diseñó en una acción preciosa plantean. Me encanta cómo has pintado la nariz de Usagi. Es tan lindo! Su sonrisa y los ojos también están muy bien representados. Creo que su mano se ve precioso también (y las manos son realmente difíciles de dibujar!) La composición de la luna fuera centrada en la parte superior, mientras que la cabeza de Usagi está en el medio añade un montón de interés y belleza. Me gusta que la luna parece ser la luz que irradia dando Usagi una irradiación espiritual y cómo las rosas se hacen eco de la radiación procedente de la luna. Usagi se ve hermoso, divertido, romántico y espiritual. La composición dice todo esto que siento. El diseño y el flujo de su cabello también añade un montón de interés y energía.

Técnicamente me gusta mucho cómo has pintado la luna de manera muy informal y Usagi y las rosas está firmemente rendidas. Creo que los colores funcionan bien aquí también. Todos los colores funcionan armoniosamente y me gusta especialmente las sombras, que no son demasiado oscuras o demasiado débil. Usted tiene un equilibrio precioso entre la luz y la sombra.
Lo que creo que haría que esta pieza mejor se está alargando proporciones de Serena, especialmente en su torso, pierna izquierda y el brazo derecho. Además, creo que su pecho se tuerce demasiado para con nosotros y debe estar orientado hacia adelante un poco. Usted tiene un par de temas de anatomía también: el mayor problema de anatomía en la barbilla izquierda se corta a alta, y creo que usted debe bajar y hacerlo más redondo. Otra cuestión es la anatomía de la pelvis parece demasiado infantil, porque creo que sus proporciones son demasiado cortos en su torso. Si alargado su torso, pelvis de Usagi deben mirar más desarrollada. Otra área de mejora es la bota izquierda de Usagi se ve a gran comparar acortar la pierna izquierda y el muslo derecho.

He planteé mi figura Luna SHFiguarts Sailor en su pose para ayudarle a mostrar algunas de mis sugerencias acerca de la proporción y la anatomía. He encendido la figura usando una disposición de iluminación de 3 puntos para darle algunas ideas sobre la luz y la sombra. Tú eres más que bienvenido a usar esta foto como todo lo que quieras como una pieza de referencia. El enlace a esta imagen se puede encontrar en mi respuesta en los comentarios ya que parece que no puede añadir la foto a la crítica :(

Las proporciones son los errores más fáciles de pasar por alto en una figura y siempre me piden otro artista por sus comentarios en un boceto antes de pintarlo.

Me encanta Usagi también y le he hecho un trabajo hermoso que pinta sus ^^
Espero ver más Sailor Moon y otras obras de arte de usted!
Fun with perspective! Working out the background for my Mercury piece. Each major component to this painting will be sketched separately, then composited directly on to Claybord. Next I will be sketching Venus, Mars and Jupiter in the background attacking Zirconia and CereCere. I then have to work out Mercury's bubble and water effects; the Dead Moon Circus tent looming above; and the most challenging will be the mother and baby Mercury is defending.

Thank you so much!  I am working hard on finishing Usagi and Luna by the end of January. I will have t-shirts, hoodies, mugs, prints, posters, stickers, Iphone/samsung phone cases, laptop skins, tote-bags and more items available on my Redbubble portfolio of Usagi and Luna.  I will be using a high-res large format, industrial scanner to convert the painting to digital, so the reproductions will look amazing! I will be posting links to my Redbubble portfolio in the comments section of the finished painting when I upload it here on my Deviant Art page.

I have kinda kept my DA page inactive and haven't been painting/drawing for the past few years, but with sites like Redbubble and Patreon, I am so excited to be back creating art that I love and that can also produce revenue so that I can afford to spend more time creating!

I also plan to be uploading painting and drawing tutorials, offering high-res jpegs of my paintings, and other perks to my patrons on Patreon by the end of the year.

I will be painting more Sailor Moon art through out this year.  Are you a Sailor Moon fan too?  If so, who is your favorite sailor guardian and would like me to paint?

Thanks again for your wonderful comments and likes and please keep watching for more uploads from me very soon :)
