As others have pointed out you've improved massively, and considering it's been such a short time it really is impressive, good going!

Not drawn for a while because of being ill, but saw comments here so did a couple more today and I've still got a few from before that I hadn't shared yet.
Image
First up is a pair of faces I did for practice. I think I was using a specific technique or something trying to come up with original faces.

Image
Next up was a different pair of original faces. Fanart for Gazooki's fanfic. And my first proper attempt at doing two characters together. Didn't really go all that well. Proportions are a little messed to start with...

Image
Back to copying, but something far more complex than usual, Camilla from Fire Emblem Fates. And wre it not for the eye being a bit wide, I'd be incredibly proud of it.

Image
Reupload of my drawing of Chazz in response to the Ojama Trio suggestion with actual light.

Image
Not a lot to say about Sarina from GX.

Image
I drew Camula again to try and get a bit of a comparison going. Progress suddenly became very visible.

Image
First of today's drawings, super cute Gym Leader Gardenia with magical hair shading eton mess.

Image
Meanwhile, Flannery's hair is too big for paper.

Try to make the girl's eyes the same size. Otherwise she looks derpy.

More drawings because yay!
Image
First up is Brigette. I think she's from Pokémon Bank? I was using the full art version of her appearance in the TCG to work from. Didn't get to do quite the whole thing because of the size of things vs the paper.

Image
Used several references to get this one together and was quite pleased with it until it was pointed out how I'd messed up her back.

Image
I then looked into the manga for reference. Much more detailed, but no idea how to do the shading.

Image
Played through the Radio Tower bit on HGSS and just had to do some fanart because I had far too much fun terrorising people in the Department Store while wearing the Rocket outfit. Overall pretty happy with it.

Image
Normal service of being rubbish is resumed as I attempt to draw Zinnia from the Delta Episode without her cape.

Got another small batch of drawings from the last week or so.
Image
First up, I used an old photo of myself as the only reference to draw a girl in the same sort of style as I've drawn everything else. I did a girl because I looked like a girl so basically took artistic licence with the hair length and the exact way I drew things like the eyes.

Image
Attempt 2 the following day of the same fictional girl using multiple references for how to do eton mess. Went much better.

Image
Saw random anime girl, drew her. Mostly wanted the practice on different hair. If anyone can identify her, that'd be great.

Image
Cynthia from Pokemon DPP. Not really much to say on it.

Image
And finally Azura from FE Fates because why not.

I have returned with mostly old pictures. In that they were one after I uploaded the last batch, but that was still months ago. Warning: The quality does kind of fall off a cliff at one point or another in this selection.
Image
First up is Chiaki Nanami from Dangan Ronpa 2. Not my finest work. I've lost all ability to do eyes.

Image
Kaeetayel made me do it.

Image
Female Corrin from FE Fates and I'm actually pleased with that one.

Then there's a two month gap... which leads to me being horribly out of practice.
Image
It's not encouraging how much of a mess I made of the face of a character I've drawn so many times before.

Updating after a year because reasons. First batch is from the couple of months after the last update.
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image
And then I kind of had an accident that ruined my little finger on my right hand and left it permanently deformed. It then took several months just to be able to attempt to draw again due to inability to hold a pencil for a while. The early results weren't great.
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image
After much persistence, the quality started to improve.
Image

Image

Image

Image
And then this year, actually started to get confident again.
