I do one of these every year just to keep track of my progress I guess?
c&p from the description I wrote on tumblr
I think the main problem with the first one is how stiff it looks, plus the lack of form (of the figure) and boring composition.
On top of that, it looks nothing like the original character (more like a 10 years older version or something..) original design
So at the very least, I became better at portraying characters accurately! P:
Things I still have to work on: fabric, hair, eyes, mouth, expression,
so basically everything else (；ω；)
