she's quite fabulous indeed. :iconreallylikehermaneplz:

i liked doing this, do you want me to do the others?

today i went on deviantart at lunch and i saw this unpleasent comment on one of my pictures that said that "this drawing is nice but you suck at human anatomy"

...well not in those exact words...more like "your anatomy is way off."

am i really that bad though?

i showed it to my friend :iconceraluna: and she said she was just jealous that rainbow dash's boobs were bigger than hers.

shes probably right y'know?

Can I just say this is gorgeous?! Seriously you made her look FAHBULOUS!!! :D

And anyhow, beyond that big block a' text, here's an actual comment.
The background is SO. PRETTY. I just can't asdfgh ♥
I love the earring and scarf combo, too, you draw clothes so perfectly. And I like how you didn't add sparkles EVERYWHERE. Like, dump a bunch of glitter on it. You balanced all the colors out really well. Awesome. ^^

Honestly? Your anatomy isn't too fantastic.


Please, hear me out? I understand both sides. You aren't going for a realistic style, you're going for more of an anime style, if I'm not mistaken. Your colors and ideas are so expressive and cute, and you do have a unique, sketchy-esque style. But you always have to take into account that many people look for anatomy and realism in drawings, even in cartoons, animes, etc.

It's an important thing to have. But you also need to tune it, you need to create your own style. I'm not sure what the other person said, but on some pictures your anatomy is a You are very talented and your art is so cute and awesome, but you will end up facing people judging your artwork if it is even SLIGHTLY off. Learn from it. The only thing that 'I' myself think is that your boob anatomy, neck and face proportions are a kinda...odd, I guess. Your necks are long while your heads are very small. But that is how 'I' see your art. But I also see beautiful colors, awesome representations, and the outfits you create are perfect for the characters.

But one EXTREMELY important thing to remember is NEVER, EVER get upset and dramatic about criticisms. If it's a rude comment, then you have to handle the situation. But critiques AREN'T people being jealous of your art style, their honest opinions. You can't be that person that just thinks "Oh well i have a ton of fans so im perfect nyah nyah nyah~", y'know? You aren't that bad, but just keep this in mind when you draw: How would this person's bones look like this? Compare it to a human skeleton. (From the computer or google images, of course. Lol.)

Please keep creating! And keep calm and carry on.

Now, I understand it's easy to just brush off someone's critique as being irrelevant, or saying they just don't understand your style, but isn't it better to consider their criticism and learn from it?

I'm just going to throw in my two bits since I've read people responding that you should simply ignore them and cultivate your own style. Personally, I believe style comes in time, but basic anatomy is very helpful in making your art the best it can be from the start. If you learn anatomy and then put your own twist on it afterward, it generally leads to better art, but that's just what I've noticed.

One of the great things about DeviantArt is the comments section, you're showing other people your work and they get to say what they think. I agree, it was rude of them to just pop in a negative comment without mentioning any way to fix it, or giving any more constructive criticism, but it's the internet and that sort of thing is bound to happen on an open site like this.

I'd suggest you take their comment into consideration, but don't dwell on it too much. You're a very young artist and anatomy takes a long time to master. With the rate you draw at though, you should be able to get better in no time. Perhaps try using references, or a site like to help you learn?

The main problems I've noticed (I don't watch you, but your at comes up a lot in the gijinka club I'm a part of), are regarding neck length, front facial views, and proportioning with multiple characters. These all will be resolved as you practice, but I can suggest trying resources and widening your range of inspiration to help speed the process along.

I actually adore the way you draw eyes, and I can see the anime influence, but perhaps analyze other styles to train yourself in facial proportions? I don't really know what to say in regards to keeping your figures the same height, or on the same scale anyhow. Try using one of those measuring by lines thing in the background to keep everything similar? I honestly still have problems with that. Again, resources can be your friend! (And don't believe anyone telling you that looking at references or resources is cheating. It is only "cheating" if you are tracing, and even that is okay for practice, just not for uploading or claiming as your own.)

You've got so much potential, and you already have a natural aptitude for coloring, folds in clothing, and color scheme. You are much better at all of these things then I could have even dreamed to have been at your age! Good luck, don't let anyone get you down, you're gonna go far. (:

I really like this crystal Rarity, she's so glamorous!

If I think you're talking about the comment I made on one of your other pieces, I did compliment you and the critique I made was an objective one. I did thoroughly apologize for my behavior and for me offending you. What I don't understand is why you would personally attack me in this comments.
InkyLove34 Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2012  Student Digital Artist
it wasnt u.
charcoalandchuckles Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2012  Student General Artist
Oh, okay, well I was concerned that I offendedyou that deeply. Well, art is always critizied, no matter how great it was. Vincent Van Gogh was never appreciated until after his lifetime.
IndigoGiraffe11 Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2012
It's simply wonderful, is it not?
As Rarity would say.

The hair looks exactly as it does in the show! Wonderful!
Super-Annedroid Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
This looks wonderful, and I'd really love to see you do the others!
Regarding that comment, the person I can almost guarantee was either jealous or just didn't understand your style. You're doing great, and I absolutely love your style.

Anatomy doesn't matter, when It's stylized. That's what I consider your art to be. It is your own style of drawing humans, therefore stylized in the InkyLove style( at least that's what I call it!) I truly adore your humanized ponies, and you should just ignore those people that are saying the anatomy is off.
CielBendall Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2013   Digital Artist
I know this is an old comment, but yes. Anatomy DOES matter in stylization. The phrase "You have to know the rules to break them." is very much of importance. In both stylization and out of it. Otherwise it looks awkward and rigid.
Meepersthecat Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
And I'm actually pretty impressed with how you draw hands for most pictures.
Meepersthecat Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I would say that your anatomy could use some improvement, but anatomy is just such a hard thing to perfect, I would know haha. It just takes practice and some study, but to be fair it's fairly decent for a younger artist :)
Luigi-iz-da-bomb Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2012
Art is art. I feel like you go for how you want t draw the human body. An example of this is how the noses are all a bit higher on the face than usual and they are also very small. However if you look at anime, for example, their eyes are huge, mouth ranges from almost non-existent to eating an entire watermelon, and noses can just not be there at all. There's no need to feel bad about how you portray human anatomy because most art that isn't straight-up paintings and photographs takes all sorts of artistic liberties all the time. As for the the missing eyebrows, I actually think that it makes sense that they aren't there because I feel as if her hair would have covered them.
LBTDiclonius Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2012
So pretty!

I think you're pretty good at anatomy, and I think you should do the rest. They're really nice! :D
