My experience with landscapes within the last 22 years! I'll never stop KICKING MYSELF, because there is always room to get better and that's the greatest thing about it. I hope this shows that it is possible to reach a higher level, no matter where you start. Of course it can take several years, but I, for my part, have learned the most by continuous drawing. The university has helped too (a lot). But I think you can get a basic education also with learning from books, you just have to stay tuned long enough.
I just opened my new søciety6 SHOP. You can already take a look at it and follow me. I'll upload a lot of new stuff soon. Oh and please ♥ my pictures there. Each promotion counts! society6.com/AuroraWienhold

Just link back to the original if you use it, but mostly have fun! This is to help people realize possible design flaws if your characters are too similar. I highly recommend challenging yourself with this one! Choose characters that you think are very similar to better help you understand where you might need help. See if your viewers can guess your character within the first half! Don't rely on eyes, and hair to differentiate your characters!! Make every subtle nuance unique! This applies for all styles! You can't tell me "But I draw humans, or anime." Look at any GOOD anime character designs and you'll see that you can fill this out for them too! Some good examples to use this meme on for preexisting characters: Cruela Devil, Jafar, Facilier, Cowboy Bebop cast, any of Hanna Barbera's characters or any pre 90s toon, Batman villains, etc.
If you post a link to your meme, I may not respond. I hope you don't find that rude, I just can't check them all I'm afraid, but feel free to post it for others' reference n.n

Just a little meme for character balance, with some tips and hints. You can use this for a group of characters, or just a few single characters. Anyway, hope yall find the information helpful!
Now comes in Excel sheet format! Check it out HERE
For the record, this is -not- a definitive chart on how to make a character. For that, see the link below. This is simply to see if a cast of 7 or less characters is well balanced according to some little thing I made up. Also, make sure to read ALL the notes as it mentions that a good cast does NOT consist of ALL well-balanced characters, but a balance of balanced and unbalanced. It is really only important that your main character is balanced. Yes, there are exceptions, this is a general meme for fun. If you want to take it seriously, again, see below.
