An Attempt to Caricature Ahri

I started this over a weekend two weekends ago, and finished it that Tuesday, if I remember correctly.  It's not visually striking at all, and I struggled a lot on the rotation of the head and her facial features.  I got lost during the process from sketch to paint.  Overall, considered a failed piece.

Week of 2013/9/1

I felt a lot more comfortable painting these.  There's a couple of different techniques here which varied from drawing to drawing, but it's the first time I've been comfortable with linework.  I think it's due to the fact that the lines are fixed-width, which allowed me to worry about one less thing.

The painting of Ciel above has the thick black lines, which I'm sure work well to contrast saturated colours.  I'm still not sure how Mariya (the one carrying the box) should be coloured in.  Miku had some of her lines painted out, allowing for the pastel glow and rim lighting.
