A bit. I'm still unhappy about the hair and that the background doesn't really look like space at all though. XD

Aw, that's too bad.  It makes for a really great snowy evening though! ^_^

I saw a tutorial on how to draw like in the Rune Factory Games recently and thought I could try it. This is the result: What do you guys think?

I'm not familiar with Rune Farctory's art style but I like the look of the character. I can never come up with costumes that are all complex like that.

I agree with Sharm, the character's design is really nice. I especially love those cute little boots~

It's not easy for me to come up with complex designs either. Especially for men. That's why I adore the Rune Factory and the Tales of Designs ^^

That type of animation is so work intensive that I think even if it was bad (which it's not) it would be an impressive addition to a game.

That's some really impressive work! The only thing that really sticks out is that the head appears to shrink a bit in the last few frames, but it still looks believable.

I agree with Sharm - I think if that style was consistently used in a game, it'd look great  :)

Tried yet another style. I can't seem to find the style I'm most comfortable with -.-°

I'm trying to copy a few things from various speedpaints I saw, but I keep failing. Just how are all those great artists able to draw like this? It always looks so stupid when I try it...

You have the right idea when it comes to an Anime-like art style. My one complain on your latest painting will have to be the arms, I can't tell if they are present or not. At the same time, the shoulders of women are less stiff, here they are raised up, which makes her body shape sort of weird. Also, the ear's shading is sort weird too, her ear is covered by hair, yet the skin color of the ear isn't shaded or darkened but it. And this one is sorta a personal problem, but why are her shoulders and cheek showing a glistening of light as if they were oiled? I mean, I get it's Anime, but why? Real skin doesn't cause that sort of effect, unless it's oiled or wet. Again, that is just a personal thing that I've always hated on Animes, so you don't have to pay attention to it.

Over all it's good, I like the character design, the outfit is nice and it can allow viewers to make up stories from it, the hair is pretty good too, the shading on it is well done, and responsive to that of actual hair. The anatomy is sort of awkward, but it gets the message across. Good job.

Thanks for the feedback^^

About the anatomy: I didn't pay much attention to it this time, because I want to use this to practise various kind of coloring styles.

I like the character design, the outfit is nice and it can allow viewers to make up stories from it
Now that is interesting XD What do you think her backstory is? (PM me for that, please^^)

Did something again. This time, it's a fake screenshot. I'm actually confident of how it turned out^^

And something more important: I think I finally have the coloring style I'm trying to do! Here it is^^:

Did some fanart this time. It didn't turn out as good as I hoped. But maybe I shouldn't use my favorite fandoms for this ^^°

The poses are drawn really well, but for some reason they look very stiff. Especially the red-head. I think it would convey the emotion better if their body had a bit more droopy, sad, sag going on. Like head dropping a bit, hair falling over their face some. The arms as well, the wrist/lower half of the arm bit feels off. I think it's too short compared to the upper half of the arm. The two halves of an arm are usually pretty similar in length and here the top half looks a lot longer.

The white-haired fellow looks fine, though the raised arm feels like it is coming out too high from their body.

Both of their legs look great!! ((Actually white-haired fellow's raised leg is my favourite part of the drawing) It's mostly just the arms that need a bit more working.

The shading is really nice especially on the red part of the clothes~ There's some attractive reds in there.

Overall, it's a nice picture - it could just use some more push in the emotions.

It's probably your choice of keyframes, but animation is pretty tricky so the problem could be all sorts of things.  What's the FPS?

Oh, that makes a difference.  FPS stands for frames per second.  The lower the FPS, the more jerky the animation is going to feel but it needs less frames, the higher it is, the smoother it'll feel but it needs lots more frames.  Anime is usually done at 15 FPS and US animation is usually at 30 (warning, this information may be out of date).

After waiting for several months to observe the results of vaccines, I finally decided to go for Comirnaty, because now my job needs me to either be vaccinated or take a regular testing every 2 weeks(240 HKD per test), and it seems to me that Comirnaty is safe enough in my case :)
