Tried to tone down the brightness of the initial colour this time. This is a drawing I made for my girlfriend and I, since we play a lot of Animal Crossing: New Leaf together.

Also, I made this in my spare time. If you recall Vivian, I gave her a small sprite sheet in the same general style as Chrono Trigger.

^ Very nice colors man. I can see that you took that in, it's looking pretty good.

Wasn't entirely sure how well this was going to end up looking, but I decided to stick with finishing it rather than leaving it to rot eternally unfinished.

Man I wish I could do that.

Anyway, nice job. Shading looks really good.

Love it, it's great to see stuff with a finished scene and all. Really adds to it.

I don't really know why, but I really dislike this drawing. Maybe it's just the summer heat mixed with how frustrated I've been when trying to draw. Practising anatomy never seems to get me anywhere.

The jawline seems to be extending past the ear when it should be meeting up with it.

Also, assuming you intentionally cut it off at the thighs, otherwise it looks fine to me.

I have a Daisy WIP, myself. That's neat though, RU.

The eyes bug me a bit (it looks like's she's literally doing O_o) and the ear's kind of small, but again, this is just me.

Thank you, though!

That looks a lot better.

But it sounds like you're still not too pleased with it, based on your comment.

Looking better, agreed. Your taste in colors always helps. To fix this I think you need the neck to line up with the back of the jaw, the ear should perhaps drop a bit and get a bit larger, and the eyes should stay the same height but the far one should be narrower. You also need to move the bottom of the chin up and forward a bit, it should usually line up horizontally with the center of her mouth. You can also move her right eye (your left) further forward a bit, as the spacing there is part of what's made you push the hairline/ear back so far, and move the rest up accordingly.

Or, leave the jawline as it is and re-align the face with the chin while resizing the ear a bit. Either would work.

Some stuff like the neck isn't entirely your fault since Nintendo's design is a bit awkward as the neck widens significantly at the shoulders and the head from what I recall.

Someone's character that I decided to draw for them.

Also wanted to draw Mario today.

That would be cool. Ever try Earthbound style?

Yeah, once. I could post those though they're almost half a decade old now.

Is the cat male or female?

Also, Mario's missing some hair behind him. Inconsequential thing, I know, but I'm too familiar with the character to not find it weird-looking.
