I'm kind of curious how you did this. Did you draw it and then scan it in to colour it?

Anyhow, the proportions here seem perfect and her outfit is an interesting mix of MK3 and something new.
I like the added badges on her top and the necklace she is wearing.

I do think, however that the colours are just too simple, which I'm sure you're aware of. Some good shading on this picture would be a very welcome addition, and would make this picture stand out much more.
But still, a good piece. Good job.

Nice job. I like the wavy hair and the color. I also like the outfit and the details and symbols that you added to her sleeves.

However, I feel that it lacks a bit of shading and could use a background to add to the pic a bit. I think without those two elements, the image comes off as a bit bright. I think the image could also use a bit of texture such as with the cloth, even though it is sking tight, there would still be a few creases if the fabric is flexible.

I think she is a bit too bony looking also, and the lines on her face and neck give off a feeling that she is olde, like in her fifities *suddenly remebers Nike commercials and shudders* and her left arm has a bit of perspective problem where you tried to foreshorten it.

Overall though pretty good concept, but could use a few things to make it a bit more interesting. 4/5.

This is very good for just being your first submission here. Colors are a bit simple, 'cartoonish' in a way. Not that that is neccesarily bad, but more color depth is always nice. Her face isn't so good though, the lines don't seem to be place to give her that more attractive look. The way this was colored is probably the reason, since there aren't an abundance of lines anywhere else on her body, they really are needed in that amount on her neck. I do like the things you did add on the outfit though, the Eagle symbol looks good, the flag on her right shoulder looks cool, and the tags around her neck are one of my favorite parts of this. Not a bad pose choice for Sonya, but the glove on her hand doesn't seem the right color to me, a darker color would have been better.

But actually like I said, this is very nice to just be someone's first submission, good work.

Exactly. I would colour it directly at the paper before scanning, but I don't have the necessary materials at home. Actually, it was my first try to draw something after about 5-6 years. As a teenager I was pretty good at that kind of things but then the interest in art was gone...

Sure, some additions like shading or light reflections would look great, but there is one problem - I'm not good enough at shading etc. I never was able to do it right and so i decided to left it out prior to make the whole picture look worse only due to 'false' shadows etc. Together with the simple colours (all i could achieve with my graphics prog - 'colouring by hand' is so much better) it makes the picture look like those old comics IMO.

Yes. All of this is caused by lacking shadows and reflections. Lines is the only possibility then I see to add necessary muscle profiles...

Thanks for critics.

Hehehe, so what underwear catalog did this picture come from?

Course if you say you did the whole thing yourself I guess I'll have to go with that. Who am I to say otherwise.

Take it easy

Lol RaMeir!
Dr_KT, you kind of draw a little off...what are all of those lines in Sonya's neck and her cheek? Anyway, I like how you made the pose though. Maybe you used a model? Anyway I think her costume looks cool! Yeah, nice!
