the picture in which jade actually attempts to do a bg

so yeah!! I spent a lot more time than usual on this one... it didn't really come out like how I wanted, nor do I think it's the best, but hey I put in more effort than usual, and that's gotta mean something, right? it's just another step to creating great backgrounds (I hope sob)

yes she is a macfag
inspired because I love watermelon themed clothes and split wigs

anyway, feedback would be appreciated!

[edit] you can view the BG by itself here: [/edit]

Came out amazing. Excellent work with the whole thing, background and character.

... 2 years ago I made a drawing with the exact same angle. This is crazy. It sucked, though, so I never colored it.
By the way, that collarbone looks weird. It doesn't look right. But, you know, overall nice trance coloring. I say trance because I can just stare at it and get lost in time, as if I was getting high to your art. Of course, I have no idea what it's like to get high, but I can imagine something close to it.

omg babe that bg though. ITS AMAZING HOW DO YOU DO THAT. Like people below have said, the collar bone is a bit low, and the shading of her arm in the back kinda makes her arm look like a twig ;c but wowww the coloring and the bg CRIES ON YOU

I think the one thing I can nit-pick is that her collar bone is too low and too defined. If you want to know a trick for correct placement of the collar bone, measure the distance from a point right in the middle of her philtrum to the bottom of her chin, then measure out that same distance from her chin down. Where that line hits is where the collar bone should start, then point towards the top of either shoulder. Hope that helps! Other than that the Bg is awesome!

How nice~ I'm loving the background but especially the lighting is really great~ My only thing is she looks a little stiff? Like it looks like she's sitting up unnecessarily straight. I would try making her more relaxed either by making her slouch a bit in the chair or maybe make her lean a bit to the side.

I really like it ^^ Especially the bg
Her shoulders are a bit uneven though?

well if she can afford that gorgeous view then a couple overpriced electronics shouldn't hurt the ole wallet to much.
