Thank you very much. Coloring in flats is fun, but I think I should challenge myself more. I really want to start improving on shading. I've usually been very hestitant about shading smoothly and a bit more realistic for my digital art. I'm pretty decent at doing that traditionally, but I've been drawing digitally about 90% of the time. Figured it should be a time for a change! I'll still be shading in flats, but will try this shading style more often.
I've been meaning to draw Bibi in a slightly more realistic way to show off how long her face is.
There is nothing wrong with that. You want to push yourself to improve. I really like the idea that you are trying to do make your character a bit more realistic! I honestly like how you paint it is so nice, I couldn't stop staring at it. XD
