Spooky Scary Jinx by V2AUZoltanKhan Spooky Scary Jinx by V2AUZoltanKhan
Working on :iconproject00wolfen:'s drawing and if all of you are wondering why it's been dragging on and on is because all summer I had to save up money for a new computer because my old one fell apart LITERALLY. So, it goes without saying my art skills are rusty, and the whole time now I'm trying to get back to my (for lack of a better term) former glory. I decided to get back on track by drawing one of my favorite characters Jinx from Teen Titans. So I doodled Jinx, scanned her and colored her in a mere hour or two. I guess it looks okay, but the thing that puts me off is how got dang HORRIFYING it looks. And NO, I don't mean horrifying as in poorly made (though that's up to you) but horrifying as in SCARY looking. Every time I fitted the picture to my screen, I almost had a heart attack. How do you unintentionally make your waifu pants wettingly scary to the point that looking at her gives you the reaction that you'd see when faced with a screamer or Jeff the Killer? Yeesh. Only in Halloween, people XP

very interesting color combination. the blacks and yellows give this a really "comic book" sort of vibe. the black on her cheeks and around the chin give her face a lot of depth and character to it. you've managed to make her really pop out from the pitch black background. the sharp purples and fuchsia (especially on the hair) really give it a burned out, electric effect. the eyes are what really stood out to me the most; the green gradient and crosshatching made the irises stand out and made it the most eye-catching part of the drawing. the only part I gotta nit-pick at would be the yellow shading on the face; could be smoother and doesn't exactly stand alone all that well in the middle of a yellow-grey face. but overall a lovely drawing and use of contrast and vivid colors.
What do you think?

I'm going to attempt to give you a critique that is more than just 'i like the colors' but let it also be known that i like the color choices :p

I like your angular style. Sure, it's hyper stylized but that's cool, and you make it work well. I also like the suggestion of facial features - just a few hints to the nose and the mouth, but heavy lines on the shadows, it looks like you have a signature art form coming together here. And I like the illuminating chartreuse around the figure - very spooky, as the title says!

In fact the only thing I have in way of critique is a tiny note on proportion - I think her forehead is a bit short. The rest of the face is well balanced but the top of her head seems flat where it ought to be rounded, because that's what skulls do. Alternatively, it might just be that the eyes are a bit high, but if you wanted to keep the face as long as it is and the eyes where they are, a little more clearance on the top of the head would be the only thing I suggest.

Question - this looks digital in some ways but do you draw traditionally first? from the AC I'm guessing you do.

Yes, it was drawn traditionally then scanned in and colored. I used to draw 100% digitally but never got the results I wanted. Not sure why though. And I am so glad you gave me a critique that IS something other than the colors. Obviously I am glad you like the colors and I wasn't have drawn it that way if I didn't want my friends seeing some delightful color choices, but yours is more detailed than there's so thanks a million. I will definitely use it to improve on. By the way, sorry for the late reply. I've been sick as of late so I haven't done much. Also, what do you mean by "AC"?
