definitely improved a ton ^-^ especially with the lineart. the only part that still needs a bit more work is some of the anatomy, like the back legs. unless someone already told you that, then sorry for repeating o.o;;;
I dont really have time to do a fancy critique but you have improved alot!! And very fast!
In the new picture you used thinner lines, but also line variety! They are thicker in some places and thinner in others which makes it pleasing to the eye.
I see youve shaded it and I will say the back of Lou would not have shading there because of the lightsource, but besides that you are very good at shading I really like the style of shading you used! Its sharp in some areas and soft in others which has a really nice outcome.
In the new picture lou has alot of expression. I immediately loved the expression you gave her! It seems to fit her pose, like shes serious or running because she has a job to do. or atleast isnt running just for fun.
THe anatomy is amazing you have given her a joint in her front leg and more definition in the overall body. Before you couldnt see a line indicating a shoulder, but in the new one you can! The back leg is positioned much more realistically then in the first peice as well as the tail. Overall the anatomy is amazing! The only thing i would say is the back leg farthest from us could have had more of a heal, but it could be behind the one closest to us so im not worried about that. But the anatomy is seriously amazing like you can really feel what muscles shes using.
I see youve added fur which came out beautifully. In the first picture you only saw lines indicating fur on her head and tail, in the new one its on her chest and butt and neck etc. All places where you would usually notice fur! Compared to the new one, the old picture looks like its a short-furred dog with a fluffy tail and bangs. And now in the new picture lou looks like a fluffy doggie!
The overall pose has a very nice composition. because of the attention the face has you are automatically drawn to the face, then your eye travels to the paw lifting up to the back paws thenn finally to the top of the tail, and your eye is brought back to the face. A good composition will keep your eye on the peice like that. aweosme!!!!
I also noticed the color of the grass is different, it looks much more realistic
Wow! I love your improvement, and in so short time! Omg!
If I'm going to give you any criticism then perhaps you need to practice a little more on anatomy, fur and shadow. The hind legs of the dog looks a little strange and thick, the ears look a little unusual and the hair that you've drawn inside the out line does not look so good. One tip is to check out this lessons [link] and [link] on shading so it will be great! Another thing that is a little strange is that the dog looks angry while running through a lush summer land. Either way, why not make the dog looks happy or maybe changing mood of the image. For example, make the background and the shadows dark and bluish, so that the image looks more serious and grim.
What? Can't someone be angry on a beautiful day? Haha. I don't find any logical problem with that haha actually I made it like this because that's how it looks like on the top shot. (And maybe it's an evil dog that doesn't like the sun? xD ) And I've already seen both the tutorials, none of them seemed to help. xD I'm new to shading you know?
Well yes, but in artwork it's better to match everything. If the dog is sad it can rain and be bluish. If it's angry it can be red and dark, happy green yellow and light. You know what i mean Cx Just a tip for ya' :3
