Some significant improvement over last time, considering I used minimal reference on this one. Mostly for the pose, and a rough idea on lighting.
Still need considerable amount of practice on a lot of stuff. Values still feel slightly muddy. I also need a better understanding of colors, so I don't rely too much on layer styles. And of course anatomy, anatomy, anatomy.
Anyway, hope ya like the fanart of Megan Gwynn a.k.a Pixie.
Never really read any of the comics she's in and only got to know her through a play-by-email RPG a friend ran.
Always pictured her as more "cute" than "sexy" which is what most of the artworks/references you'd find on google look like.
My long anime influence still shows, but slowly learning to draw something more closer to realism.
Trying to find that nice mix of both; also being able to draw either sounds pretty good to me.
