I read somewhere a while back that people tend to view themselves as uglier than other people perceive them because individuals spend more time looking and scrutinizing themselves in mirrors, etc, and end up finding minor flaws and exaggerating them. I believe it's that way with art, too. I spend so much time looking at the same thing that I either a) get desensitized to the errors and miss them completely until I go back and look at it again two days later, or b) I can only focus on the flaws and get kind of confused when people don't see the same problems that are obvious to me. I know I do a lot of things well, but there are many, many more things I fail miserably at due to lack of skill, experience, etc.
I don't really put as much effort into the headbands as I should, but they don't really make a difference. I like drawing his pushed-back bangs, so the headband is a good thing in the end.
The GROSS/Midousuji drawing is okay but I wish I spent more time on his face, I really wish I had done Makishima's hair and nose differently on the double portrait sketch of him and Toudou, I wish I colored the NSFW pic differently, etc, etc. Just little things I wish I spent more time on. I get really impatient with drawings when I can tell I'm almost done with them and it ends up showing when I don't take the time to do something right.
I'm competitive, but in different ways. Like.. just with knowledge in general, I like knowing a lot of stuff. xD So if I have a chance to flaunt the knowledge I have, I will! But that's understandable, sometimes people just don't like something. I don't like sports either, so I'm pretty sure that's why I just don't get it. Maybe sports anime would be different though since yeah, they kind of make you care about the characters, while in life media, you don't really give a s**t about these people. xD
I kind of regret the first few fanarts I posted. Even though they're all really only a week or so old, I wish I had spent some time figuring out the characters' faces first before posting a bunch. Toudou is REALLY fun to draw, though. I love his bobbed hair.
Ahh, one of the things I'm most worried about is translating the anime features into my style and still have them be recognizable. I still have a lot of trouble with Makishima and the reason I haven't posted fanart of any of the other characters is because I can't get them quite right.
I love the post-episode omakes, especially the ones of scenes from Love Hime.
