Hello, good afternoon, to evaluate my prices in future commissions that will be opened, I would like to know your position on my drawings, and show them here. To find out the level of interest in them and how much, on average, they might be worth, well, I'll put in Three more recent drawings and if possible I'd like a candid opinion after a grade from one to ten.

I would rate them in order: 5,6 and 7 on 10.
In spoiler below I explained my rating with criticism, you can read them if you're interested but it's also okay not to read them if you don't feel like it ;)

1st one: I like the style and energy, and the saturated colors. I don't like the composition because the head and the pumpkin blend and overlap too much (same for the hair and the tongue for the overlap of lines) and the head's green fur and the leaves also blend too much. You could try thinking more of colors and how to make the character stands out by using them at different places or with different saturation/values.
I like the patterns you used, it really adds a nice originality.

2nd one: I like the pose and the render but I feel that the background isn't harmonious with the drawing and lower the global impression. Especially the writing is not well made. If you really want to keep it, try different calligraphy and maybe even use a text written by computer and not by hand. And well it lacks a bit of refinement (linework with not cleaned lines where they overlap another element (example: dress and belt at the right))

3rd one: I like the global render and the colors. Even if I like the sketchy feel, for me it's too sketchy here. It renders good on the head, outfit (mostly) and tail. It doesn't for the arm, the lines of the belly in front of the hand at the right, and same for the part of the outfit where the lines cross on the waist (other parts too, but the list is a bit long, so where the lines aren't a bit cleaned to emphasis the volume and the separation between elements). Proportion for the upper part of the left arm are wrong in comparison to the arm at the right.
It still gives a pretty solid feel so good job ^^

Hope that helps :)

Eu os classificaria em ordem: 5,6 e 7 em 10.
No spoiler abaixo, expliquei minha classificação com críticas, você pode lê-los se estiver interessado, mas também não há problema em não lê-los se não tiver vontade ;)

[SPOILER = "Críticas"]
1ª: Gosto do estilo e da energia, e das cores saturadas. Não gosto da composição porque a cabeça e a abóbora se misturam e se sobrepõem demais (o mesmo para o cabelo e a língua para a sobreposição de linhas) e o pelo verde da cabeça e as folhas também se misturam demais. Você pode tentar pensar mais nas cores e em como fazer o personagem se destacar usando-as em diferentes lugares ou com diferentes saturação / valores.
Eu gosto dos padrões que você usou, realmente adiciona uma boa originalidade.

2º um: Gosto da pose e do render mas sinto que o fundo não está em harmonia com o desenho e diminuo a impressão global. Especialmente a escrita não é bem feita. Se você realmente deseja mantê-lo, experimente uma caligrafia diferente e talvez até use um texto escrito por computador e não à mão. E bem falta um pouco de requinte (traçado com linhas não limpas onde se sobrepõem a outro elemento (exemplo: vestido e cinto à direita))

3º: Gosto do render global e das cores. Mesmo que eu goste da sensação superficial, para mim é muito incompleto aqui. Ele fica bem na cabeça, roupa (principalmente) e cauda. Não para o braço, as linhas da barriga na frente da mão à direita, e mesmo para a parte da roupa onde as linhas se cruzam na cintura (outras partes também, mas a lista é um pouco longa, portanto, onde as linhas não são um pouco limpas para enfatizar o volume e a separação entre os elementos). A proporção da parte superior do braço esquerdo está errada em comparação com a do braço direito.
Ainda dá uma sensação muito sólida, tão bom trabalho ^^ [/ SPOILER]

espero que ajude :)
VThanks, it really helped me to have a different view on the design, and I understood what you meant, I'm going to try to improve on that.

Please keep in mind that I am extremely picky, so don't take my ratings too personally. XD I can see a lot of people buying art from you, with the right attitude and advertising of course! Also, my prices are merely suggestions. I don't know how long it takes for you to draw these, and you should definitely be paid for your time!

Drawing A: 3.5/10 @ $10 - $25

Firstly, I like the design orange/red design on the fur. I haven't seen one like that before and I thought it was nifty! But the idea confuses me. Is this to showcase a character that resonates with pumpkins? Or are you advertising what a bust/icon product would look like? Why are there little splashies? OH. Or are those seeds? I find the highlights to be lazy (thick blobs that don't add to the depth) and there are lots of spots where you colored outside of the lines.

My suggested price range is very open because I'm not sure if you would just be drawing a character head, or if it would include a background of sorts. If it were to be cleaned up a little, I would be comfortable paying $25 for something like that.

Another reason why I would hesitate on price is because you don't have a whole lot to show in your gallery. Sometimes artists can only draw one thing (and that's not a bad thing)! I'm picky and want to make sure they can do my character the justice they deserve, so maybe try doodling/drawing some other species?


Drawing B: 4/10 @ $30 - $45

I like the depth in the stylized face! I have to agree about the background, it doesn't quite make sense and I think you need to try and either NOT add backgrounds, or have the commissioner decide the color scheme. I see a lot of sparkle on their bling and in their hair, but the green (almost grungy) and bubbly background just kinda kills that dazzle, if that makes sense. I also feel like the sparkles could have been implemented a bit better, maybe getting rid of some in her hair and focusing on her eyes. They have no light in them at all!

Anatomy bothers me. I know it's normal for artists to sometimes exaggerate/break limbs to pull off a certain pose/look, but I think it was taken a bit too far. That being said, I see how much time and effort went into the details, which is why I have another flexible price range.

Drawing C: 6.7/10 @ $40 - $55

I love the colors and the overall design! The solid-colour background is probably the best way to go, picking a neutral color that doesn't make the character disappear or pop out too much. I also love the cute heart~!

I didn't bump the price up too much because in the end, there's a lot of overlapping lines, and the overall stiffness, that make it feel more like a first draft or sketch than a completed/solidly outlined piece. Not saying there's anything wrong with sketchy styles, but your first image featured solid/hard lines. You may want to make sure people are aware the finished products may not all look the same, depending on what you plan to sell.

I think these are all super, super good! I think you have a lot of diversity in your art, which is something a lot of artists don't have. You can go from drawing feral, to human, to anthro super seamlessly and it looks great. The style also seems very compatible with each, which is something I know I struggle with haha! The drawings are also very pleasing to look at! I would definitely buy something from you if I had the money. One thing that might turn some off is you can see some of the sketch lines in the finished pieces. I would think they add texture, but some might want a super polished product if they're going to pay for it. Another thing is there is a lot of negative(?) space in your drawings which might be unappealing to some, so I would crop them bad boys or make 'em transparent. Of course, those are absolutely your choices so keep doing what you're doing. A solid 8/10!

Eu acho tudo isso super, super bom! Eu acho que você tem muita diversidade em sua arte, algo que muitos artistas não têm. Você pode ir de desenho feral a humano a antro perfeitamente e fica ótimo. O estilo também parece muito compatível com cada um, que é algo que eu sei que tenho dificuldade em haha! Os desenhos também são muito agradáveis de se ver! Eu definitivamente compraria algo de você se ganhou o dinheiro. Uma coisa que pode desligar alguns é que você pode ver algumas linhas de esboço nas peças acabadas. Eu acho que eles adicionam textura, mas alguns podem querer um produto super polido se eles vão pagar por ele. Outra coisa é que há muitos espaços negativos (?) Em seus desenhos que podem ser desagradáveis para alguns, então eu recortaria os bad boys ou os tornaria transparentes. Claro, essas são absolutamente suas escolhas, então continue fazendo o que está fazendo. Um sólid
Obrigado, fico feliz que você tenha gostado, bem, esses desenhos não estão acabados, hah, são apenas esboços coloridos, então suas linhas não são firmes nem nada além do primeiro, mas olhando agora, esqueci de sair está mais limpo

Honestly, I understand what you mean by lazy, and I don't care negatively, and I even consider what you said. In fact, I didn't realize that what was missing was to enrich the design in some way and make it cleaner, the character had no background, it was in this case a new character that I just made the head, I designed the pumpkin to be something more in "Halloween" but out of season. The "splashies" are really seeds, but I didn't detail it very well, apparently. I even considered what the other reviewer above said, that the colors weren't very well-chosen to stand out, and that I've put in too many that end up overlapping. I will improve on this. I was never very good at human anatomy, I spent part of my life drawing more ponies. Anyway, I also thought the background might have gotten a little dirty, I just liked it because it was intentionally sloppy, and I can rarely do something with scribbles and leave it without feeling uncomfortable, I'm trying to exercise other styles too, but my trait always remains the same. I never thought anyone would care about the light in their eyes, I'm going to keep an eye out more, it's just that I'm not in the habit of drawing the background first, so I end up doing the shading of the character, before doing the lights on the scenery. I think you liked this one better, well, let me explain, I understand what you mean, but these last two are color sketches, they're not actually artwork, the only finished one is the first one and that's why it's the only one with a slightly more solid lineart, though, I found that the lines in some parts ended up taking some of the shine off certain parts. Well general, thanks for the reviews, they will help me a lot to improve ^v^
