Art critique and advice; beginner artists are welcome to post here; includes an oekaki. (NO FLAMES)

Artists, read before posting!

Before you post your art to ask for critique, please read these tutorials. They explain the basic principles of drawing and figure drawing. Most posts where these basics are missing will never get a response, as people are quite frankly sick and bored of explaining over and over that you would have to pretty much learn how to draw first, before you could improve.

And for those of you who want it a bit easier, we also have the whole thing as one neat rar with all three books in pdf form.

If you think you know a good basic tutorial that would fit in here, feel free to contact me under Xenofur in IRC and I will add the link.

So it's my first time here and my first time at drawing adlut material.

Whilst I am not hugely satisfied with the piece it is only the first draft, the image's subject has encouraged me to stick it up on here and see what people think. So here I am.

Comments, complaints and constructive advice all welcome.

Thank you.

Just to clarify something that I should have covered in the initial post as it'll likely come up almost immeadiately otherwise. My intention was that the arms are held in a spreader bar behand the back, not tied at the wrists.

Surely it's not that good... =P

Stop being a douche, you don't have to post that on every single thread.

This pic really isn't that bad.

All right then, concrit (and also my first post on Fchan, woo). In my opinion this image is boring. Drawing is a visual language and your image always needs to tell some sort of story, even if it's just supposed to be spank fodder. Who is this character and why is she in this situation? Is she enjoying it or not? I can't figure out whether she's supposed to be cheerfully showing herself off to the viewer or struggling and squirming in humiliation, and that's a pretty important distinction.

I'd suggest thinking about the situation you want to convey and starting over with a new pose that is designed to show that story. Pic related is two possible approaches. #1 (unwilling) has the character struggling - note that with a 3/4 view you would be able to see some of the spreader bar and I've pulled the tail up over it to highlight its existence and add a bit more flavor. #2 (willing) is more like your still pose, but with body language to show that she's quite happy where she is and enjoying the looks she's getting.

Tl;dr: give your character a personality, the work will be a lot better.

I assure you that posting was not mine. In the case of posting it in other threads, however, it's evident that people are simply skipping over said information and thus it needs to be brought down into their threads.

I can see what you mean and I can already see the way in which your sketch conveys a lot more about the scene. Thanks very much for the advice and I'll give it a go.

Yes some people suck and need to have that told to them, but for the most part it just gets posted in every single thread here regardless of art quality.
