Life's a beach by Rukaisho Life's a beach by Rukaisho
Been a while since I submitted any artwork. Anyways, some of you may remember the sketch I submitted of this back in August. (Seriously. Has it been that long?) She's trying to relax on the beach only to have some jerk off screen making wolf whistles at her. or.... something. :shrug:

I decided to use this image as a warmup to hopefully get myself back into an arting mood. Not one of my best, but I like it. Either way, Sonia needs some love.

Sonia :iconrukaisho:

Sonia is one of those characters who is always a treat to see, especially so if we haven't seen her for several months. Just to be able to see art from you again, Mark, is something to be excited for and it's wonderful to see you try to get back into the swing of things.

I'm giving you a "4 Star" on vision, mostly because this is a very simple picture we're seeing here. Sonia laying casually on a beach chair sipping a drink. The appeal does actually lie in this very simplicity and is the sort of scenario we the fans have come expect from you.

Originality was a tad lower at "3 and a half Stars" on the premise that this is still a remake of an old drawing you did back in 2005 (Which is an old favorite of mine). We've seen a few beach scenes from you and while they've all been good, it's nothing too out of the ordinary.

I personally always love your technique on your drawings. From seeing you work lines, to flats, and on to shading and lighting. Sonia's proportions are spot on in my books and her figure is truly believable and approachable. Her expression at the unseen admirer is very humorous yet cute at the same time. You get a "4 and a half Star" for all these reasons, including how much I like the way you did the lineart around Sonia's body. The lines are bright and white around where the sun would be shining and shaded to a darker hue where there is shadow or she is covered. We know backgrounds aren't you strong suit, so that's why I didn't give you a perfect 5 Star for Technique.

And in final for my rating, Impact also gets a "4 and a half Star" marking since this is one of the reasons I joined this site and look forward to logging on everyday. To see a Mark Haynes original. Sonia is one of your oldest and most well known characters, seeing her casually on a beach in a bikini is very striking, knowing that we can look, but not touch. Most impacting itself is that this is sort of an homage to your older works. We know you can do better, but this is still a fantastic way in trying to segue back into art.

I speak in behalf of all the fans and your watchers in saying that we greatly look forward to any future works you produce. Thank you for finding the time to work on these great pieces. :)
