DJ-Again...Again by Eemari DJ-Again...Again by Eemari
This is something that I had to submit to my original account :iconsapphire4723: for deviantart's 'draw me again' contest, due to the original work having to have been on the same account as the contest entry (what a pain xD). But the contest is long over, so I can finally post it on my new main account. ^^

So, what do you guys think? The lighting was a challenge, but I really love the outcome. I definitely welcome all critique! :D

I really really love this -i saw it on your other account but didn't wright a critic.

In comparison to your old artwork you definitely have a much better understanding of color/lighting and anatomy than in your old one.

This is also line-less and it looks very good line-less too!

The only 'negative' things i could say is that you could of added sparkles and clutter to the back ground (but that would of taken away from the focus of the picture) Its just a picky thing that would vary person to person and doesn't really matter ouo like really this is a really good picture

I think adding textures to the equipment the girl is mixing on would be a nice touch (that's more of a preference too, most people probably wouldn't care)

One fault is that a backwards quarter note? or a flat without a hole? XDDDD
What do you think?

Excellent work. The lighting may have been a challenge, but it paid off.

haha yeah, I think you do. :) It's like... I just can say "hey, this is Eemari's" You do have other drawings and such that are really great like the one of Jack Frost but even then you have just that "something". Can't put a name on it but it's good. :)

Well I don't know much about digital art, but I'll offer feedback just based off what I see if that's okay^_^ well i think the lighting is amazing and i also really love the way the headphones light up too the only thing i would change is add more detail in the hand thats on the turntable it looks a little too blended and there's something a little off with the face? I'm not sure what but something on the face isn't right, like the way the mouth is supposed to turn doesn't look right and the eyes seem kind of empty.....idk it just looks like a weird kind of facial expression i'm not exactly sure what it's trying to convey oh and the neck is very short lol. Otherwise this piece is still really cool and i know i can't make half of what you've created here so I hope it's okay i just offer my insight because i still really appreciate it hehe

Not a problem - I really appreciate your feedback! Digital or traditional, it's still just art xD

I really know what you mean about the face – it's my least favorite part of this whole work. I literally spent HOURS trying to rework that dumb face, but regardless of what I tried, I couldn't make it look right. I ran out of time too, so that didn't help. xD Maybe one of these days I'll get around to fixing it. I think the biggest problem is the mouth and the empty eyes, like you said already.

I very much appreciate your critique! You definitely nailed all of my trouble areas. And I saw your gallery - you sooo could do something this amazing! I really like your faces! (ha, you'd probably do a better job on this DJ's face than I could xD). Thank you again for your thoughtful review of my work. :)

i think it might just be because of the dark lighting around the eye with no sparkle/light reflection thingy on it? haha idk :p well anyways dont worry too mucha bout it cuz its still really great. and oh no! i have been wanting to learn digital art and start with it but im kinda scared o_o it seems really hard and confusing. how long have u been doing it? and THANKS for watching me!! :meow: :love:

This is a nice piece of work that certainly shows the potentials of your skills and how you can reflect such a evel of charisma and story telling within your art. The presentation of this concept is strong and you have presented with it a good understanding in how you show the personality of the DJ through their body language. The interaction that she has with her equipment, along with the enjoyment for the rythmns that she creates for the crowd is one of the strongest aspects here. You can sense her love for music in how the anatomy moves in motion to the atmosphere and reflecting how you can bring about a story just by how you've expressed your characters movement.

Colouring is nicely matched to the theme and design of the work with the rich contrast of blue and pink being well suited to the club atmosphere. The use of shading is also very well approach, mostly in the clothing by how you've created the ripples in the shirt. This helps to really amplify the motion of her movement and the vibe of the setting as well. The skin tones have also been approached well, but to perhaps define it some more around the edging might be a consideration to allow her to appear more defined. Never the less, the whole image has a real pop of character and beauty.

Thank you for your in-depth feedback on my work! You've described it so beautifully, but it also reflects what I had in mind when creating this piece. I love music, I love having fun, and quite simply I love being with people (not to mention my adoration for the color blue with hot pink accents xD). These were things I wanted to portray in this work, and I'm glad you could see it. :)

Yes, that edge to the skin (especially around her hand on the equipment) has been mentioned by others to be a bit 'blurry'. Thank you for recommending this – I'll definitely consider this advice for when I attempt works later on that use similar lighting elements.

Thank you again for your in-depth comment on my work! I really appreciate the time you spent analyzing and writing this review.
