If you think the title is lame, you've hit on the right spot. Blame me for not having inspired back then. (Yea, it was made back in August anyway) ^_^'

Being frustrated over my drawing skills which I can't improve, I've tried staying away from drawing for quite sometime and just when I accidentally had this serious artblock. Everything looked so dull and boring, I can't even get inspired, it was kinda frustrating.

So in the meantime, I tried copying Sato Fumiya's style to get over with my problems and did this drawing of a girl. It didn't turn out good, but I'm sorry for her though she had to be the victim for my dullness. >.<

Not much to say, but it's something pretty ordinary. Though it's called doujinshi, but actually it's a drawing whose outlines were vectored so I can easily cell-shade under the lines. (It's much easier that way) ^^

Currently listening: Suga Shikao - Sorosoro Ikanakucha
(Wai wai~ It's Honey and Clover's insert song by Suga Shikao~)

Anyways, critiques and comments are very much appreciated. :)

    Hey obaa-san ^_^

    Well, been a long time indeed since i last saw a doujin from you ;)... Anyway, this one's kinda original (in the way that it's not your zodiac saga), and i think you've done a good job. The hair is pretty good, and the way she turns her head is well done too.
    Maybe it's lacking a bit of details / shading on the cloth (especially the back of it, it seems too "flat", maybe adding some folds would be good). Also, there's something wrong with her pupils, one is way more dilatated than the other... so maybe one of her eye is not focusing on the same thing as the other, but otherwise it's disturbing ^_^'

    Otherwise, as i said, it's nice !

    The linear is a little fuzzy and her head looks twisted.
    yet, the colours are great, I love the effect you put on her hair, but I agree with Anjhurin, there's a lack of shadowing. the idea is fine, a simple sile, and you kept it simple, and i like it this way, the pastel purple Bg is cool.

    Geez... now I understand more that you need inspiration. Why not go on a date with... *whistles*

    Anyways, guess I have to agree with the above posts. A simple drawing is fine but you NEED inspiration more! *pokes Sofie's head* and I thought this is the wall told me you're gonna make.

    Don't make pink one heck of a dull name. It's the sister of red!
