This is actually the first time I am trying to paint in a more manga-ish style! ^^ It was really much fun! I was kinda inspired by the art of *sakimichan, who is one of my fav artists! I hope you all like it! I know that my depiction of her might differ from the Disney original version, but I like to interprete characters the way I see them!
Favs and comments/critiques are highly appreciated!
This interpretation is very pretty ^^ you did a great job on her face and hair. Her skin appears to me to be too light to be Native American and it looks very caucasian even with how you have the lighting. I am far from an expert on anatomy but her arm in this picture seems a bit long. In the position that her arm is her hand would not be able to reach that far. With how she is positioned here her hand would be right in front of her right breast. Her bicep and elbow would have to be moving inward towards her body more I think. Also there should be more of a crease where her forearm goes into the bicep because her arm is bent and the muscles are folding together.
The line defining her breasts seems a bit strange but that may just be me.
I hope this was helpful and if I'm wrong in my interpretation I apologize, (which it's possible I am) these were just some things that I noticed that seemed off. Still, lovely piece and wonderful use of lighting.
This is beautiful. The your technique is amazing. I love the colors you used in the background, It makes pocahonts stand out. The only thing that I disliked is how she looks more white than 'copper' and her face shape makes her seem less native american, But those are small details that don't matter that much. The light shimmering off her skin is amazing, and is very well done. I've seen many attempts at drawing pocahontas, but this is one of the most stunning. The soft coloring also made it more prettier. Words really can't describe how awesome this is. Keep up the good work!
Thank you for depicting her with dark brown wavy hair instead of stark black straight hair. The wavy is better suited to the region and tribe she would have been a part of (our tribes share Iroquois language roots). The stark black hair is more typical of the southwest tribes.
