IRON HAN.

Genius billionaire playboy philanthropist by day, scruffy-looking nerf herder by night.

Hannah. Han for short, as in Solo.

Comic shop assistant manager. Opinionated with a side of nerdy. Iron Man junkie, Mass Effect activist, film critic, literary fiend, lover of tattoos and boys with earrings. Sometimes an artist, occasionally a writer, and always a connoisseur of bad fic.

NOTE: If you want to tag me in something and get my attention, tag it with “Iron Han”, without the dash.

you are my favorite person

I think the most recognizable thing about your art is your amazing attention to detail! It's stylized, but with a realistic baseline. I think someone said before that your characters have a "soft and rounded" feel to them? I would agree with that; it definitely makes your art stand out. As for what you could improve on, I feel like sometimes your work turns out stiff, but I've been following you for a long while and you've made a lot of progress in that regard as well as in art in general!

Thank you my love, for the compliments as well as the critique!!  I was just looking at some of my older stuff today and I do see improvement, as you said, but also I feel like I’ve lost a lot of the detail I used to have, especially in stuff like textures and layering (back when I did more Mass Effect art I was better at this sort of thing, my more recent work has kind-of lost that).

Also, the stiffness is a good observation, as some of the work I do (especially if it’s a quick one-off for fun type piece) tends to end up being “person standing in empty space”.  I don’t have a lot of energy anymore thanks to depression (don’t we all?) and I get tired out relatively quickly when I try to do more dynamic poses because of the attention to detail that entails.  I will definitely try to make an effort to put more dynamic variation in my characters/situations/poses from now on, though!

Thank you so much for the advice! <33

Your understanding of anatomy is spot-on. HOWEVER, after seeing your latest stuff, in which Fenris made an appearance, I would have to stipulate that you just need to branch out into studying the multitudes of body types. Some people have chronic same-face, I feel that what you have may be chronic same-body-type. You can draw the beef cakes, but what about the string cheeses like elves?

Ahh, thank you!  Anatomy is one of the things I’m actually most fretful about getting wrong, so this is REALLY reassuring <3

And ah!  Yes, that is really good advice!  You know, Fenris was actually a lot thinner in the original sketch (I don’t know why I made him bigger in the final - tunnel vision?) but I will definitely try to vary my bodies more so it’s more obvious!  I was just lamenting the lack of varied body types in my art (I mostly draw either broad shoulders with a thin waist or muscular shoulders with a tummy, but never really BODYBUILDERS or, as you said, string cheese).  I will definitely work on that - thank you SO MUCH, Anon! :D <3

most notable thing about your art style i think is how round and soft everyone looks
+ por-que-no-recibo-sopa

"Round and soft" is a good way to put it, thank you! :D <3

Especially “soft”, I like soft things (like babies, babies are soft)

I have an oc named Jyoti that's an alien bounty hunter with cybernetic implants that help her see due to damage to her vision that would otherwise leave her blind.
+ neonreverberations

JYOTI <3  (I have to admit I have a weakness for things having to do with eyes - false eyes, blind eyes, really unique eyes, etc.)… what happened that caused the damage to her vision in the first place? D:

My character Benji lost the sight in his left eye after he picked a fight with a mutant who could manipulate negative/vacuum space (why would you do that?  Benji is not bright when he’s angry) and the guy ended up choking him and using his ability to sever the airflow to his brain until it actually caused enough damage to make him go blind in one eye.  It also caused his until-then shaky right hand to go nerve-dead from the elbow down, effectively paralyzing it.  Don’t pick fights with mutants, kids, it can only go badly.
