One day to go, and rushing in like a mad man. >^< This is pretty last minute. I didn't know they were hosting a FF13 contest until yesterday. So I decided to do something like this. My customization for her is to be more comfy, girly, and masculine, all at the same time. I like this half tech, half medieval type of style. So I decided to give Lightning something similar. I adjusted the colors to fit her accordingly.
Yeeep! so excited to see this game. XD I struggled with the first game, and watched my friend DancingFighter finish playing the other one. So I'm excited to see someone play this one too. >w<
XD I know, I am always over critical of myself when it comes to my art, but I try to view it logically and I feel if I'm not critical I won't be able to improve. There are several times when I am super proud of my art because I don't even believe I drew it myself or someone else was in control of my hand the whole time. But a lot of times I'm only satisfied and can see multiple mistakes that I wasn't able to work around, or didn't notice till I finished.
That happens to me too, I just let it go, let it goo. jk I either set it aside for a while and come back to fix it later, or I just let it go and try to not make the same mistake in the next art work I draw. Because there's no reason crying over spilled milk. If you can't fix it, learn from it. A lot of my old work I can see a lot of mistakes, I can fix them now, but there's no reason to; especially when I can make new and better art. I keep my old art as a reminder that I was once a baby artist.
Your heading the right direction, but don't be too hard on yourself. One day you'll look back at those work and realize how much you have improved.
