Look, it's me!

Hehe, this is a drawing of me. (I love full-length mirrors!) I'm also using this pic in the Escaflowne: Kamakura RPG for my character Dream Chang.

No need to comment on the lousy fuzziness along the black lines... it's the evil .jpg conversion distortion.

Note: Don't try this pose at home... it looks cute on paper, but it's rather hard on the hips after a while....

Hehe, I must admit that I enjoy your style. It's very cute ^_^
I only have little minor nit-picks for this picture, like that her (your) eyes seem to be on different levels, the right hand looks a little odd (there seems to be an extra finger poking out there), and her position looks...well....painful ^_~. Thanks for putting up the disclaimer to not try this at home. I can understand why ^_^

I'll be looking forward to seeing more of your work.

see you space cowboys.

Now, if I tried a pose like that, more than likely, I'd break my nose.

I think the eyes are fine, the head at an angle giving the illusion of uneven eyes. And I bet the 'extra finger' is actually a drawing utensil, since the thumb is the only appendage on the hand that can lay across the palm, but not reach past it. The shading is nice, albeit it's all on the clothing.

Conversion aside, it's a good self-portrait. You're getting better on the lineart. The colours look nice, although the hair doesn't seem to be dark enough; It gives a faded appearance, and it doesn't look right.

Once again, good work

Her balance looks slightly off, but that could just be the angling of the drawing (I've drawn crooked on paper before without noticing. I've done it a lot). If she were a real person standing at that angle, she'd fall over in half a second. I also agree with the C&C on the hair.

Other than that, it's a nice drawing. ^_^ Cute pose, and I can understand the "painful" comment. I've tried posing like that before. Ouch. ^_^;;

Is that extra "finger" actually a finger on her left (our right) hand?

I am a real person, and I did fall over in many half-seconds. And yes, that extra finger is my other thumb.

The hair looks faded because if I had used anything darker, I'd forget where the lines were. I'll see what I can do.

Also the shading was... just 'cause I felt like it. I'm not good with shading yet, so I just swiped a few shadows on the PJ's and left it like that. I was actually planning on leaving it without shading, but... oh well.

Thanks, everybody, for the C&C! ^_^

Okeys, we got update.

There's some more shading, and I've made the eye a little bigger and shifted it a bit. And I added in the afore-omitted dangling ponytail.

Very nice. ^_^ I can't really see anything to C&C, other than I like it.

Yay, I found the thread!

Anyway, I was looking over this drawing a while ago and I realized that something really really needed to be changed. I won't tell you just what until I finish it up. You may or may not like the change, but at least I will feel better about it.

Sounds like you're in trouble, DL. If you're broke, make something, and think pretty. If that doesn't work, dress yourself up and hope she still loves you.

Anyway, I (think) finished revising the pic... still not too happy about the shading and whatever that I slapped on, but I'm pretty happy about how much closer it looks to the original model/sketch. If any of you wants to just redo the coloring and practice your CGing skills, go ahead... I'll thank you for it.

Looks good!

Definatly some improvements!
Her right eye looks better, her skintone isn't so pale anymore, the position of her right foot is better even though it's still not very comfortable.
The shadings are pretty nice but a little bit too light, perhaps if you add some folds the shadings would be more appearant.
I added some folds in your pic with MS Paint (maybe a bit overdone ) to give you an idea how it would look like, hope you don't mind.
Other than that you've done a pretty good job, keep up the good work eh!
