~Wintry Pastry~ by Chalysane ~Wintry Pastry~ by Chalysane
As one can probably guess, this is an update of my older "Topped With Strawberries" picture.
It was created in the same spirit, kinda: I wanted to create a mascot for an anime club.
Albeit, one that I've long graduated from, but it was similar sentiment.
Also, it was cold weather when I decided to draw this, so I decided to make her more so warmly clothed.

Several months later, I realized that it could still get much colder.

I decided upon the background about when I was writing the description for the work-in-progress.
It was kinda funny, considering I figured it out midsentence.
Don't think I did it perfectly, but I do believe it came out relatively well.
I think I wanted gradients to some degree.

This was half a test of wanting to try out her design again.
The other half was me wanting to try and gauge what's changed about my drawing.
. . . Doesn't feel like much, but what should one expect if one doesn't draw much?
That said, it's not too bad for not being an art study. I think.

Also, most situations, it's not that I take forever to complete these...
It's more so that I kinda forget to. Either that, or I forget to upload them.
Summarily, these don't take impossibly long. I just procrastinate to severe degrees.
And that my memory is bad.

Oh, also, I added in purple this time because I felt that it worked well with the base three colors.
And gold. That said, the jacket is gold or bronze, and it shines a bit in the light.
Can't see it here, but it looks very pretty~
Now that I think about it, I wonder what's under the jacket?

Also, I think I should've stayed with the brown for the skirt.
Not as flashy, but with the accents still at the bottom.
I think the contrast would've made a striking image~
A light in the dark is brighter than a light in the day.

I'm also quite proud of the scarf~

In other news, comparing the old drawing with this one...
I think the main difference is the hair:
Now it seems more ruffled and texturedry and fluffable.
Before it was... Stoic-ish and posed-ish? Hard to describe.

Though, I think I like the expression from way back when a little more.
That said, both expressions have their charms.
Now it seems softer? Back then, it seemed enthusiastic.
I think they go well with their respective timestamps.

((heck, I have updated this description like 6 times so far going back and forth comparing them lmao))
