Eh, I don't now. The anatomy and structure of the face just looks very haphazard to me. Maybe try using a reference image instead of your imagination. Remember kiwi, Anime is also derived from real life. Try studying real-life faces and then distort the proportions to suit your tastes.

I get what you're saying. I think the original pic had her features more...Defined if you will, and I kinda lost sight of it. Thanks for your feedback.

Okay. Let's hope I get this right this time. This time, I am going to attempt...A full-body painting! I did happen to use a reference pic for this one, especially for the legs. All I can hope for is that they're *mostly* correct.

How is she standing up? With the way she's standing, there's no way she's balancing on on just one foot. You should bring her leg down so that it's actually touching the floor. By all rights she should be falling over in that pose.

Well, then I can solve the problem by painting a wall. That way, I don't have to make too many alterations, and I can explain how she's balancing.

But that doesn't really solve the problem. She's still got no support on her left side. She'll just topple over.

I can teach you how to ink, it takes a lot of patience but it works, and you don't even need a tablet.

I won't need to ink anymore with the style I am going for. I want to have a virtually lineless style, where lines only emphasize certain parts of the drawing, such as dividing lines between breasts, accessories, etc. Besides, I don't even have any working ink pens made for drawing. I appreciate the offer, though.

Also, this:

This picture makes no sense. Why is she wearing that dress outside, and why is it that you can only draw trees? I will pay you to make a female martial arts fight, Karate vs capoeira.

You have a deal, but AFTER this piece is done. Besides, the piece isn't supposed to make sense. For God's sake, I added trees that look like hands. I might even add some giant mushrooms and other stuff.

I have made more progress on this pic, and will be selling it as a print upon completion. I feel like I'm really getting better at this.

Well sorry, but it still looks like she would tip over to the left, because the tree looks like it's behind her (not supporting her enough from the left side). Quickly shopped something:

I told you. Changing the position of her left leg so that it's rest on the ground, though you'd have to do some foreshortening, she would be a lot more stable than how you have her.

Well, I can't change it now. I'm already painting it. Besides, I figure a tree should suffice as adequate balancing.

My newest project. Now, I am starting to draw some Persona fan art. This is the kind of direction I will be taking from now on, as well.

Before anyone complains when I say the girl in question is in fact, Aigis, in Persona 0, my fan project, the year is 2018. The year Persona 3 took place was 2009, a nine-year difference. I reasoned that since nine years have passed, Aigis should get a new design; one that is simpler and streamlined, and covers up those mechanical parts, yet still makes her look robotic. She's still a robot, but she looks less so, so she can blend in with the crowd a lot easier.

Besides, this pic will turn out pretty damn awesome if I play my cards right. I mean, you've got Aigis' nervous expression, a demon about to eat Aigis, while Aigis is dodging just in the nick of time. This is truly me trying to challenge myself and do more expressive art.

I ADDED A BACKGROUND! So, now I know what I want in there! Think of this realm as "Sub-Space" and you quickly realize that reality does not apply here. That explains why Aigis may be at a weird angle, and why the monster is also at a weird angle. The victim in question is suffering an emptiness in his heart, which is why there is very little in this realm. The Dreamscape takes on the surreal sins or feelings of whoever is thrown in.

In response to Otto's critique of my last piece, I decided to challenge myself and give Aigis some colored tones to her shading instead of just darker versions of the same color. There are some subtle blues within her shading. This is just a progression pic to show how far I am right now. I will definitely put my all into this piece.

Why did you leave her breasts like that? I flat out told you they were lopsided. Her right breast is hanging way too low comparison to her left one. I told you this long before you even started painting.

It's the angle her torso is at. The angle makes that make sense. Sorry I left it that way, but the angle just makes it make sense, at least to me, anyway.

The original character had a much more mechanical design. The idea was to make her less mechanical looking. Also, there's a human-looking girl under that suit. 10th Gen Anti-Shadow Suppression Weapons were made to look more human.

But the only reason all those mechanical parts were visible in the original game was because it made the design look super cool. There was no logic behind it. She was still somehow able to attend high school. You seem to be trying to get rid of the parts of the design that make it interesting.
