Oddly enough, I am also satisfied with my progress. As an idicator, during my last art class the model complimented my charcoal drawing (which was probably the most realistic in the entire class, even though I wasn't having a particularly good day empathically)... I'll need to get a scan of it or something and post it... if people don't mind seeing a bit of a bottom.
I discovered my characters' faces turn out better when I start out with ovals rather than circles... and references help oodles.
Yes indeed, the faces are definetly better! If you don't mind me asking, fr how long have you been drawing manga\anime?[COLOR="Silver"]
