I have wanted to draw the Chihayas for a long time and did it for their birthday! ^-^ I hope it's not as bad as I think.

It's always nice to see more fan art threads. However, I do recommend that you find another means of uploading images besides attachments. Attachments are such a hassle to get into the correct file size and they're not very user-friendly anyway since you have to be a member and go on the thread just to even look at the preview, let alone the actual work.

Try uploading to imgur and post the image here using the image post tool and copying the URL. It makes it much easier. Trust me, I learned the hard way.

I think so because then it's easier for people to see the image itself with or without an account here. The only issue might be dependent on servers, and even then only very few servers (mainly protected ones such as school servers) really have trouble. Just overall convenience, really.

No, I've meant "Is my picture worth uploading on imgur? It's bad anyway." ???

Eh, it doesn't really matter. It's not like many people will actually see it on imgur itself. It's more for uploading images than showing them off, really. At least, for me it is.

Hmm... decided to give yourself a try in sketching I see. Very nice.
Anyway, how can I put it? It's kind of normal to don't expect much when you don't have experience. But it's a matter of studying "things" (anatomy, perspective and stuffs), practice and how to use tools (such as color pencils, white pencils and even eraser).
Aaaaaaand...

No, I've meant "Is my picture worth uploading on imgur? It's bad anyway." ???

I think that doesn't matter. How can I say it? Art is all about... missing. You miss, miss, miss until getting it right. Yeah, I know. Complex. :p
Buuuut... a nice try. o/

It's more like your art skills needs more improvements. By improvements, I mean more practice. It's an alright start, but it's not quite there yet. It really doesn't matter where you uploaded your artwork, but Deviant Art or Photobucket are most likely your best choices.

Thanks for your support! :D

I don't know what was more surprising: the fact that Chihaya-Master turned out to be nearer to the viewer or the fact that I didn't want to fix that. :)

I've been waiting for this thread! You promised me this last year. Last year, Liza. =P That's worse than me with your request.

Anyway, I can agree with the others who suggest practice. It takes a long time, but it's worth it. Bases can be helpful too, and don't forget to study anatomy like Yui suggested. That can make a huge difference. But still, good to see you sharing your art! :) Keep it up~.


ONWARDS, AOSHIMA!!!

I do. >:I

You have a unique style, and I'd love to see how they look when you draw them!

But I won't mind if you put it off for like ever because I'm still ignoring your request ;-;


ONWARDS, AOSHIMA!!!
