You should do a first and last drawing comparison to show your improvement. My feedback would be to mind the line weight. When done well, it'll look almost 3D.

My month has been pretty great, thanks for asking! Inktober's been an awesome way to get used to a medium I wasn't really familiar with and figuring out what I like to draw.

I love their cute faces!  And I so remember the vast frustration I had trying to do these models....

Mm, that's a good idea....I suck at ink and pen drawings, yet one of my classes is always demanding that ink be the only medium I ever use, haha. This would be good practice...

No...I just should be. XD I might do it in December, after I've built a little confidence with ink....

Her best friend. :)

I really love your design of her. It's wonderfully simple, clear & distinctive. With the little frilly dress, neat little shortish black hair, hairpiece & of course, the good old cartoon staple of thin body & an oversized head! Dee Dee herself would be proud:D (Big Grin)  It's just such a brilliantly straightforward design & one that people can immediately recognise. That's the hallmark of great character design to me.

Plus, she always to me a lovely spunky, mischievous feel about her, like she's the kind of girl who would get her & her friend into a wacky adventure, regardless of the consequences. Easily one of your best original characters.

Thanks!:) I did not want to evoke the comparison monkey(tvskyle.deviantart.com/art/Com…, so I thought it would be better instead to give a much more detailed, in depth explanation of why I liked it, rather than just saying I like it.

I think I've asked this question before, but that Girl isn't based off of anybody, is she?

AnthonyHolden Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2014  Professional Filmographer
Not anyone in particular. I have the WORST time settling on character designs. I've changed her so many times. She's an amalgam of a lot of faces and hairstyles that I referenced over the design process.

Well. whatever. She's AWESOME. I also noticed the flower in her hair. That's really well drawn, in a cartoony kind of way.:) (Smile)
