What exactly do you feel you need help on? People might be able to offer more specific advice if your question was more specific to your problem areas.
You seem to have a chibi anime style going on in your work, and it is a concurrent theme. This can work, but only if you take advantage of the pros and cons of drawing in chibi; namely learning how and when to super deform a particular feature, when to add some realism, proportions for chibis, etc. Some people have this idea that drawing chibis = easier way of drawing anime, and depending on how detailed you plan to be with it, its actually not the case at all, since you basically have to take the human anatomy and then simplify it even further. Simplifying something doesn't necessarily mean its easier to, as it can take some getting used to, and a commitment to a style that does have its limits.
Are you content to draw in a chibi style? I'd start by asking yourself what it is about chibi size characters that make you want to draw them, and then focus on those things and analyze them on the technical level. You might just be inspired that way.
As for this actual sketch, its not that bad actually, as you clearly have a theme that is well executed, and this and your other pictures have charm and character, a definite plus if you're going to commit to this style for any length of time.
i actually am learning my own chibi art thing is that, the coloring i'm not so good with mixing multiple hue together so i go for black and white i also got inspired by Sin City (comic/movie) and Dogs: Bullet and Carnage (manga/anime). If you look at the art you can see it's heavily inked and sometimes go for the extreme (like Sin City style where you can hardly see any line sketch or indication, more of a painting without a single frame). I found inking is insanely hard so i love to give it a try, and end up with this series of mine i'm having a difficult time finding someone who's good, advance, or even master the technique of inking to help me out. Sometimes details on my picture don't come out as expected. Lineart is a fine thing to start with, but how will i color it as will? some people find it easier to mix and mess with different colors, while i'm trying to focus on only 2 colors well, thanks for sharing your advice and care i'd hope to see your new deviations
Theres lots of different ways to learn and explore using black and white, and it has mostly to do with technique. Have you experimented with spotting, cross-hatching and techniques like this, or are you just filling in areas with black? Depending on what you want visually, you may need to learn some additional techniques if you plan to work primarily in black and white.
Its to be expected that, if you've worked in black and white mostly, color will be hard for you, since there are many more things to consider, and color can completely change the look of a picture.
For now, I would start slow and don't try and do too much, or more than you know you're ready for. Set realistic goals that are practical and can actually be accomplished.
actually it's by pen i'm thinking of posting a picture of my pen later XD and another thing, "1st try" means 1st time on deviantart, if you look through my gallery you can see the original 1st time picture similar to this, though, worse than this one X)
Cool drawing especially the posing and expression, my critique with this is mostly with the characters hair. I feel that the character is wearing a wig rather than it being his hair, because of the angle it's drawn. usually there has to be one part of the hair going inward at a point where is where the hair is mostly rooted, you don't have to draw complex details but indicating that would help. The second problem is the right ear, our right should be visible, I think it's hidden in the shadows but it should be actually closer than where it's sitting at this face angle, so the fae looks too long to the right. Other than that cool beans and cool effects. I hope you don't mind my critique.
i know what you mean and it's totally fine to give critique i actually had a difficult time trying to learn my own art, it's really hard to put such thin white line in a black region to indicate the parts i was working with a different pen at the time so some of the white lines got inked by accident, the ear just got dipped into the shadow (Q____Q) some people use different programs to paint and draw their pictures, i just feel like using pen and it's a weird one (i'll post a pic of my pen later) the hair is a fun part to play around with, as to make a crazy sayan hair or just casual ice-cream korean hair (lol), i'm learning how to give out lines without making my picture too "messy," i'm learning how to shadow things anyway, just give me time to progress
ahahahah, i really like his expression and the pose XD its so cute~ =v= what i think should be improved is the shape. I know that ther character on the left is suppose to be kind of shapeless since its kind of being eliminated, but I still think more defined shapes would help with understanding the picture
You can search online for some tutorials, those help a lot Depends on how you would like them to be painted if digital or traditional. For traditional I use coloring pencils ex: [link] and for digital I use Paint Tool Sai which is good and very easy to work with. Good luck
