I wanna start this off by saying I am not the most consistent of drawers. I don't do any practice, I don't try out different techniques, nothing like that. I put pencil to paper and I go and try. 

That being said, I'm sat here quietly amazed at how far I've come in the eight years I've been on deviantArt. I had a couple of years gap in drawing (focused on fic writing instead, I think) so I know my style/technique isn't as developed as it could be, but just for comparison:

Crystal's Silver dress by CartoonMad97      Ringmaster Harper Woods by CartoonMad97
(March 2010)                     (April 2018)

That's insane. I mean, I'm literally astounded at the fact that I learned to draw humans properly. 

I can, uh, only hope I continue to improve like that because, um, wow? 

Thats all I wanted to say really.

"When His Highness gives me an order, I see it through." 

---

So I've been watching Akagami no Shirayukihime / Snow White with the Red Hair again, and between Zen and Izana I just wanted to draw flowy capes and swords. You would not believe how hard I fought the folds on that cape. 

Let it be known that I'm deeply in love with flowing and drapey fabrics, but I hate drawing them. 

Anyway, so I'm likely to draw this girl again. I'm hoping she stays fandomless but... it's...  really not looking like it right now. My brain has already screamed a plot point at me and I'm just so :| (Blank Stare) :| (Blank Stare) :| (Blank Stare) 

(For reference, my brain is thinking perhaps a knight of Clarines, a personal attendant to Crown Prince Izana, and perhaps a long-term friend of the Wistaria brothers. I'm trying to tell my brain no, but, uh, we'll see how that goes.)
