wow, I can't believe it's been a year since my last improvement meme. welp, I wanted to try drawing yami in a wedding dress again to see how my art is different now. So, the last piece of yami I cellshaded was 3 months ago. This piece is cellshaded in the style I used for ciel's at because eyes. I think I'm more willing to add pose and perspective to a piece now haha. I tried to add foreshortening to this piece to make it look like yami's taking a step forth (in the direction of improving my art shalalala).
haha, I'm not certain exactly what, but I do find that the main difference between me and one year ago is that I practice a lot harder
I also find that reading manga by really good artists and pay attention to the way they draw their chapter headings help with composition and clothing folds. Not necessarily coloring tho, but you just got to experiment until you find a good style!
