From the universe of long and weird body parts, I introduce to you – The Dress Dancer. With two magical balls in her hands this alien lady is making all kinds of beautiful dresses, simply by dancing…


It’s something strange with dancers, I just have to colour their dresses! And since this went out very nice, I don’t even need to post the original. Done with coloured pencils in my dark bedroom with only candle lights and a mini flashlight to see what I was doing. That’s a technique I should try out more often…

uhhh... keep trying. This is the ugliest thing i've ever seen. I'm not trying to be mean, just honest. People who draw very well are going to critisize you. It will make you feel bad and unconfident. Maybe this is not the best place to post your art right now. Improve your skills a little bit and then come back. You could be a great artist someday.

10 Karen-Birgitte "Ellemerr" Borud replies: "uhhh... well, thats nice. Too bad for you, I don't think I'll go anyway... Gee, if everyone should just quit Elfwood when they got a comment like yours, it would be much more empty here! Probably a little prettier too, but still. Oh, and one more thing... what is wrong with her? It's hard to improve when you don't know what to improve... 10 So bah, you little... uhhh... thing! ^^"

Well, I have to say that it isn't so bad at all.
If you look at the way it's coloured, it doesn't seem so bad. BTW: I like her face, it's so different than other paintings i've seen in Elfwood.^^

13 Karen-Birgitte "Ellemerr" Borud replies: "Hah take that! 1 Thank you! Makes me feel much better... ^^ Mmmm... Im different... nice. 12"

Don't be so mean, tekkaleene. First of all, it's not half bad, I actually like it a lot. Secondly, the way you give critisizme is plain destructive. In stead of telling her what she could have done better, you just call it ugly, which is a highly subjective therme. That kind of critisizme does not help the artist, which should be your goal by posting.

As for the drawing, I think it is really good. the colouring works great, and I really like the arms and legs. You could perhaps work a bit more on the hair though, I don't know, there is something there. I like the contrast to the green clothes, but still, I think it looks a bit to solid, or something like that....

2 Karen-Birgitte "Ellemerr" Borud replies: "Hair is hard on moving peeps, I had the same problem on "dance"... I can't seem to get it floating the way it should, it's just hanging plain right down... Well then I know one thing to improve at least... ^^"

Oo, nice movement here... and I love thos color scheme, too. Can't go wrong with the good old blue skin, red hair setup... ^^ Well, okay, so maybe its possible, but it didn't go wrong here.

1 Karen-Birgitte "Ellemerr" Borud replies: "Everything can go wrong sometime or another. But you're right, this time it didn't! Huzza for that! XD"
