I've spent a lot of time today working on this. At first I did my usual thing; rushing both the lineart and coloring. I was oddly a little pleased with the first outcome, then my boyfriend made me aware of one big flaw. That flaw got me really down, and I was upset that I hadn't been able to notice it on my own... So I was very disappointed in myself. Didn't even want to draw anymore.
Then, just now, I decided I wanted to repair the drawing. And I'm glad I did, because this version turned out way better than the first one. And this time I took my boyfriend's advice and used a reference: a mirror
That helped a lot with getting the shading right and repairing that one big flaw.
So, I really hope there aren't any major flaws left now.
And I hope you guys like this
Ray, ladies and gents! Ray!
