LOL if I never published anything I wasn't completely satisfied with I'd never publish anything. If you truly are 100% satisfied with your work I'm envious. :-)

That section was in reference to a turning point I personally experienced with my art. You can see a lot of my old works in my scraps - back then I was rushing to just publish stuff as quickly as possible, and I'd frequently go through like 2 or 3 pixel dolls in a day, but I never really liked them.

Then an artist I really admired asked me why. She said it wasn't a race, if I just took my time and tried to improve things until I was satisfied with them, then they'd be a lot better. From that point I had very rapid improvement, because I was learning instead of just repeating the same old mistakes I always did in an effort to publish stuff as quickly as possible.

I use the same basic process with shorter hair :) It's just that with shorter hair, you have to do more layering instead of simply relying on the overall shape of hair.

This doll was really where I cemented her character design. Before this, I just knew she wore a white dress and a blindfold, nothing more specific than that. So I made up the dress on the spot xD

Glad you like it ^^
