Yeah, it's been over a year since I last submitted something. Here's Holly. My holiday mascot(?) Again. ^^;

Around the time i drew this on paper, it was really windy, hence the skirt. ^^

So... who thinks I'll draw more than 4 things this year? hahahaha........

It's great seeing art from you again! ^^

I really like her posing and expression here, and how you drew her clothes. Structurally and anatomically everything looks good, and overall it's very, very cute!

Thanks~ It's heartening to know I'm drawing something right. lol
I really just want to start churning these out whenever I find the time to draw. Motivation is still a major problem for me though.

It is~ The hardest part is in the beginning, where you realize that it is a tonal language and saying things in a certain way ("ma?" "ma.") make the syllable mean different things. We use tone in English to indicate questions, mood, intent; they use tone (4 in mandarin) for word meanings. And usually the irregular grammar and word usage (like in all languages) has to do with the number of syllables. So since tone and rhythm are important, it makes Chinese literally a very musical language.

Once you get the hang of pronouncing the words, the grammar isn't all that bad. Chinese is where we get simple phrases like "Long time no see" and stuff like that. There's no verb conjugation, and the basic sentence structure is still Subject-Verb-Object.

As far as memorizing characters, well, that's just practice. (Which I've been really bad at lately) Just keep writing and listening, and you can get em down. And they're really fun to write imo. Just harder to memorize if you don't write them down repetitively. lol
