I just realised that my maths notebook is filled with just sketches after sketches...
which contain pretty much seiken-related stuff so I decided to post here some:

Hey, those are pretty good Image

Who is that showing through behind Sara? (or is that an erased sketch?)

I really like the third Riesz' pose, Riesz and Kevin together and then the SwoM heroine.

Riesz and Kevin together are my favorites though, you should do little versions of all the heroes like that. :D

You should do some of these on clean paper and tidy them up, or work over these on a computer. They already look awesome as sketches, they'd look great finished!

It's just some other sketch from the other side of paper.
Like I said, my notebook is filled with sketches... :*
Now that I think about it, I've used only about 5 pages of it for studying maths but I've used almost every page of it :o

I thought I'd finish some of these on computer when I have time. Sometimes when I'm just sketching something I end up with some really good stuff. It's kinda funny ;)

Those are pretty sweet. A+ for drawing Kevin, my favorite char on SD3. I like your flammie one too.

Haven't been here for a long time now. Anyway, this is something I felt I had to share.

From the back cover of my current maths notebook:

Stayed up too long and overslept the next morning for this. But I think it was worth it~ ;*

Very nice,

I really like it. Was this done straight from memory or did you use a reference? Either way, your face is fantastic and the composition reminds me of a stained glass window. The hands are pretty good, too, but the right hand seems a little flat. Also, instead of working slowly with short strokes on your bold lines, maybe you might try a very confident stroke with a softer and duller pencil for a smoother line.

Those are totally just suggestions and in no way are meant to take away from how awesome your picture is! Thanks for sharing,

manaman

I've drawn Riesz so many times I don't need a reference but I had this on display when I was drawing so it might have affected somehow. ;)

Thank you for the criticism and suggestions, I really appreciate them. :-)

edit: I'm currently working on a colored version. Hope to have it ready someday... week... month... whatever ^-^; I guess it's all up to my mood.
