Hello, my name is Lynsley. I've been drawing manga professionally for three years now, but I only started to learn real anatomy when I started going to art college about two months ago. (I'm only vaguely familiar with the head structure for now.)
I was in this art slump a few days ago when I decided to give realism a try, and this is what came out of it. I've polished it quite a bit, since I now plan to submit it as cover art (empty space for text) for our school's animanga magazine. Still, this is my first time doing something like this, so I'd really appreciate your advice / suggestions. Thanks in advance!
Longnu is an immortal / spirit character from my original manga, and this is supposed to be her human form. Theoretically she's supposed to look something around 14 years old. Her element is water.
