i was looking through my computer for some face reference and I found this reaction photo which i always liked. i think i sorta flattened her nose which was a mistake and i broadened her jaw in a way that reminds me of one of those squat little kids from akira. i actually like it as a drawing, it feels like a different character but i think i used the reference quite well.

finished linework? not sure, it feels a bit lifeless.. might colour a little and see how i'm feelin' about it.

sorta faffin' with some character design. find it difficult to stylise things to an extent that i like whilst still getting a believable sort of construction to the body, muscles, curves, that sort of thing. sometimes feels like everything i do is hyper-real or hyper-stylised.
