Thanks so much Loki! You have no idea how much that means coming from an artist as talented like you. ;;

Also, particularly on the Samurai X picture-- I think if you're going to shade the bridge of his nose, it'd be a good idea to define the cup of the nostrils, and not just the holes themselves!
UGH TELL ME ABOUT IT!! My biggest problem, by far, is that the picture just totally develops without me thinking about it, if that makes sense. I never sit down, about to draw, thinking, "okay this time I'm going to focus on -x-." It just kind of... happens and before I know it I've invested two hours in the hair/clothing and spent like two minutes on the face. ;;

It's funny that you mention Aqua Girl too.. because that's actually the style I feel most comfortable with. Anime.. while I draw quite a lot of it.. it just doesn't feel right to me anymore. The proportions and everything fall very much on the foreign side of art to me now. That's why more westernized pieces like Aqua Girl or Red Witch of Hameln come out better and overall more believable, imo. It's funny that you've picked up on that. n_n;;
