Matron of the Golden Grain by Scarecrowlover Matron of the Golden Grain by Scarecrowlover
Yet another non-important character in my book. Yes... I think I will only ever post drawing of non-important characters because I am paranoid.

This is Morala.
She is the matron of the best brothel in the worst part of town which I guess makes it a relatively average brother overall? Oh, I dont know.

Was gonna leave it in black and white, but added the random pink just for the sake of putting a bit of color in my life.
Feedback would be nice. Im still practicing and have absolutely no idea of what Im doing...

I like that the color scheme is simple and easy on the eyes. The pouty, slightly parted lips gives her the seductive look. Her eyes are very pretty as well!

However, I think that she could be adorned in more jewelry and more elaborated make-up... since she's after all the madame of the best brothel in town. She looks like the girl working at the brothel rather than running it. A little bit of flamboyance wouldn't hurt. ;)

The fingers of the hand on her hip seems rather odd. Just like claws. But then again, I'm being nitpicky. It's a critique, after all.

Overall, I think you did a great job. I like the fact that she's a little pudgy - different from the typical tweedy-looking madames usually depicted in the media.
What do you think?

Whell first think that i think that looks amazing on her picture is her body .I realy like it that you made her curvy and able to make great cloths witch wraps her body so whell. I also like that you can see that she aged and her body my not be as firm as it was before yet she still has charms. Now on to the bad sides i think that you could done much better job on hands and fingers aldo to me as whell figers are among worser things to draw. Second i feel that her cloths could have had a bit more folds but i guess it might be that kind cloths witch is thigther. And last that arm look bit weard . But alll in all great drawing and i hope it will get more love sinse this work is trull amazing

I have the habit of drawing my unimportant characters as well! They're so fun and really they do bring the story all together you know? :D
Anyway, I love her design! It's always fun to see an overweight OC in people's galleries. You draw her curves wonderfully! Keep up the great work! :love:

Thank you so much. I often see too many characters that are perfect and skinny. I adore Morala because she's sassy and is proud to show off her rolls, as should anyone who is a bit heavier.

She looks really nice, and I like her pose, really shows off those curves.
Her outfit is really great too.
Background coloring is good too.

So, I'm going to try to give some constructive criticism.

At first glance, it looks almost like her butt is halfway up her spine, it looks kind of unnatural. I would definitely recommend practicing anatomy a bit more, it's a piece of advice I get all the time, and it's a great piece of advice. I think you've got an amazing headstart, and if you already practice, you're doing really well.

The other things that jump out at me, is the pink. It looks great, and I don't think the piece would be complete without it. Other than that, you've done an amazing job at putting this woman to paper. Keep at it!

Thank you ^^. Well, it's definitely is not meant to be anatomically accurate. It's this style I developed that is stylized. A bit like cartooning, but less abstract. But I agree, a study of anatomy will definitely help me out when I draw more realistic pieces. I suppose as for this piece I should probably make it more stylized so people don't confuse it as an attempt at realism.
Thank you. :aww:

No problem. Even with cartooning, I find that a quick anatomy lesson helps out tons, though I can definitely appreciate stylized work for what it is, and this piece is wonderful. :)

Once I have time I plan on taking some live anatomy classes. For now I only use books by Leonardo da Vinci, his anatomy journals and some other professional books. I think I've gotten to the point where I need some live models.

Very nice! ^^ I always like sketchier pieces, it often gives them some extra movement and I just like the style. I love that she knows how to flaunt her curves. very sassy, haha.

Thank you. I did feel the piece needed some color so I though pink wouldn't be too invasive. I'm glad you like her body language. :)

The character has a good way of expressing her 'personality and background' with the pose and the way she is positioned. The work on the frills of her skirt is also very good, although it appears as if they grow shorter to the back. Is that intentional? The fingers on her hands may need a little bit more detail as, even if they have sharper/long nails, they don't usually end in a point. Her face and body follow the same theme and seem to flow good together. Perhaps the thighs are a bit big in proportion to the body? That though can fall under the artistic licence of 'stylisation'. She looks believable as a matron, and a woman that has a higher status among her sort.

Thank you got the input. No, i don't think the frills growing smaller in the back were intentional. It may have just been my attempt at making the prospective make sense, but I may change it up a bit. The hands do need some desperate help as well.
This was a piece that took me just a few minutes to complete, so it's a very rough draft. I hope to do a second version in color and detail when I have more time.
Thank you again for your insightful comment ^^.

She really does look like 'madamme'. :D You know, it's weird, but I can almost smell the scent of some seductive powder about her. She must have sent some of it over here by waving her fan! :D

Anyway, I think she's well aware she's earned her place in the past, so she might have let herself go a bit, or rather - she decided to relax, not really caring about all the glittery stuff and make-up as much any more. Everyone knows she's in charge! :D I might be wrong, though.

All in all, I like her. She seems like she has a lot of tricks up her sleeve. :D

Thank you ^^. Yes, she has been doing this for quite along time. She's one of those people who is a bit of a social butterfly, adores gossip, and loves anything to make her look her best. But she has a strong personality, and will crack down on any man who mistreats his workers.
