this is the drawing that made me interested in doing more. i hadn't really tried before i sat down and worked on her.  also my first try at coloring anything with photoshop, so it's a bit clunky.  I got the pose from a sketch from Chrono Cross.

i LOVE her expression. she seems to b saying *so many things to desroy, so much corruption to cause but so little time!* lol i love it. keep it up!

:-) Michelle A Salvagio replies: "lol - that's so funny! she does look rather mischievious, doesn't she? thx again for stopping by! (p.s. - love your work!!!)"

I like the expression on her face, and the colors are good too (PhotoShop can be a *pain*, I know). The only thing is the wing closest to camera. The folds, I guess you'd call them, should angle more up toward the claw-knuckle. At least that's my opinon *smiles*

:-) Michelle A Salvagio replies: "i definately agree - this piece is rather old, but i still like her and am always learning from her - so thanks so much for the help!!! 1"

I love the way shes sitting!! Youve done it so well! Your really good at drawing different poses and hands!! ^_^ and the reflection effect is brilliant!!! It actually looks like a reflection!!! The only thing that doesnt quite look right is the hair! The colouring looks a bit umm wrong?! Well not wrong but not right!! >.< lol! But other than that its a great picture!!! 2

:-) Michelle A Salvagio replies: "ya - her hair is definately not one of my favorites... i think that's probably the one thing i've come really far on is hair - i'm like, obsessed with drawing it now! in this piece, it kinda looks like i hurried through it, which (embarrassingly) i didn't <blush>"
