Chisa redesign by chisa Chisa redesign by chisa
Finally finished! I think I've been working on this for almost a month, just very very slowly and at broken intervals.

It's a little disheartening when you spend such a long time working on a piece, then end up feeling very unsatisfied with it. Then after looking at my old work, I realised its a lot better than most of the other stuff I've done. Then I don't know whether to feel happy at how much I've improved, or unhappy at how unsatisfied I am with what my 'best' at this point is. I think I really need to start drawing more if I want to improve at a faster rate :(

I'm happy with my mushroom tshirt though =D

Ya did great, especially with the strange floating pose and the improvement over yer older bits. I think that unless the skirt is a weird 3-piece cloth job, then there's not enough bunched over your raised left leg, but the outfit is awesomely simple, and the mario shirt always gets approval. : )

This is really your best work! Ive been looking through your gallery and totally agree with what u said in ur notes. She's really nice (including her top!) and I am fascinated with the background, the white paint. yum!

I know what you mean, that's how I feel all the time as well. But I think you're doing really great - I wish I could draw something this good! I really like your anatomy and the sense of motion. The bg works well with this type of picture as well. And that is one cute shirt ;)

I don't understand how you can be disatisfied with this piece cause it is gorgeous! Sometimes though if you work on something too long it doesn't seem right in your eye so maybe that's what happened to you. ^_^

I really like the colors you choose, they're really pleaseing to the eye and her hand is very nicely drawn. The other things that stand out to me are her shoes which I think you did a fab job on and t-shirt. :w00t: :+fav:

I think you should be very satisfied with this piece. I love the composition and the background is very pleasing to the eyes. The character is lively, and adding the paintbrush + paint was a very nice touch. :)

Thanks so much! I think its easy to become over-critical of your own work, but when I think about the progress I made with that piece I came pretty far after all ^_^

She reminds me of *Artgerm's Pepper. In a good way, not 'ZOMG YOUR CHARACTER AND MINE HAVE THE SAME COLOUR HAIR I CALL ART THEIF' way. And heck, I'm always down with Mario references. The subtle splatters in the bg are pretty, they don't distract from the character.

I was in an OMG I LOVE PEPPER! phase at the time, which might explain it XD I think its mainly the headphones, which I've dropped in later designs. Yay Mario! Although many people have pointed out to me that the mushroom is the wrong colour and style, heheh.

Wow wonderful, why aren't you satisfied with this one? What's wrong with it, in your opinion? I think it's really ok, very well drawn and coloured... I think it's also well proportionate and the perspective is right too, so I can't find anythink to improve in this one! :)

I think I was just in a down mood at the time XD Looking at it now I got really lazy with the shoes and the shading on the face doesn't follow the face structure well, but I'm fairly happy with it overall - more than with any of my other pieces anyway! I had a lot of help with anatomy and things as I was doing this which is probably why it turned out fairly well, so I'm trying to do that with other major pieces now so I can learn from them.
