(To Forest) Since earlier tasks are taking forever, I thought I'll drop you the critique for IMHO task for OC-training in the meanwhile :)
Ignazio is definitely interesting and intriguing character, starting from that he secretly runs an illegal bar - and that's just a top of an iceberg, if you consider his ancient legacy. I love how easy-going and lighthearted he seems, confident of his power, along with his handsomeness and ability to use gun well it almost seems like he's flawless. Maybe he's a bit too perfect? I wonder what are his weak points - maybe he's a hazardous type, loving danger too much (which is also suggested by the fact he's a part-time bartender during prohibition era), prone to show off for his beloved girlfriend? Anyway even apart from that, he feels a very likable character and would love to know better his story (especially since I'm a conspiracy theories fangirl and loving everything connected with Atlantis and other legendary stuff). Looking forward to see more artworks with Ignazio, and hopefully he finds his brother :)
I dig your artistic style - just like your sister you have good sense of anatomy, also I love how you are able to catch the same features on Ignazio's face everytime you draw him. It's not that easy :) It shows that you and Howler learn from each other and help out another in your artistic journey, which I'm kind of envious because I was a lonely self-learner most of my life :D What your drawings could benefit from, probably finishing backgrounds more often. I saw on older drawings you do pretty great backgrounds but get discouraged to finish them or something, which is shame, because they look really neat and just beg to be colored. For example Briar and Friends is my favourite from your recent drawings, awesome perspective, marvelous outfits, so many tiny details just begging to stare at them. It would be awesome to see it finished. Also keep up the good work with anatomy and faces, hope OC-Training encourages you to grow as an artist ;)

Thanks so much for this comment!  The things you mentioned really spark my interest.

First off, Ignazio: You are right about about Ignazio seeming too perfect, but in the next few tasks, I plan to show a side of him that he'd rather keep hidden.

For the rest of my(and my sister's) art:  I love to draw complex outfits and backgrounds, but lately I haven't gotten into the mental state required to do so (like a zen moment).

Looking forward to see new works with Ignazio and your zen moment! :heart:
(Sorry, I somehow imagined you are bro and sis, not sisters :XD:)

Not that hard to imagine.  We're tomboys (to an extent).

rofl That's a point, still not a reason though.
BTW, why sharing an account? (I must admit I became confused as who is replying to me :XD:).

That is a problem...
Sometimes we put our names in the comment, and we should do that more often. We do share an account. We opened it when we were 13-14 years old... and we were really naive at the time. We're so sorry for the confusion. :)

Well, sharing account might be a very fun idea if you're getting along, especially since your nicknames combine so well :aww: And probably both "Forest" and "Howler" separately are already taken. Maybe you're gonna be like tincek-marincek.deviantart.com… one day :D
No worries, I think I'm smart enough to guess most of times XD

Hi, I'm catching up with 6th task for OC-training 3rd round :)
Speaking of your William, he seems pretty well-thought character so far - I especially liked how thoroughly you described his anatomy in Bodytype task, including such details as where did he get his muscles from and history of his magical tattoo. I also like the idea of him being a sailor/pirate and using his wind/water controlling abilities in emergency situations - seems very helpful in case of storm. His background in general looks pretty logical and William seems nicely developed character. It would be lovely to learn his story and adventures in future tasks, where did he get his powers from, why he became a pirate etc. I think there's much potential to this character :)

Speaking of your art style, I'm impressed with your ability to draw multiple character scenes, and your sense of anatomy is really good. Of course there's still some room for improvement, but you have general understanding of anatomy and you aren't afraid of complicated poses, this is very promising about your future improvement. Also your color palettes are pretty natural and compact, you could go a bit wilder and be a bit more brave about them for better impact of your artworks. I like that you explore different art styles and search for your own, not sticking into your comfort zone. However your artworks could still use some research into basics of art (like most of us :D). I recommend drawing from life and using references, reading a bit into composition and perspective, exploring different color palettes, and of course keep on drawing in general :)
