One thing the anime con had me realise was this: it's been a REALLY LONG TIME since I deliberately tried to draw anime-ishly. I'd been focused on stuff like.. backgrounds.. and learning better anatomy, and better poses, developing an own style etc. But fact is, I still love the pretty cutesy anime style. And unlike last time I tried drawing like that a couple a years ago, NOW I can actually produce something I can look at without dying on the spot
it feels great!
This pic was just for fun. Nothing wrong with that, right? It may seem cheap, and meaningless, and it probably is. But I've realised that sometimes, it's OKAY to draw something for no reason other than to want something cute to look at ^_^
