So the thing about being a beginner is... Struggling to improve without getting discouraged
Tried following Rio's tutorials on drawing Manga style faces. The front gave me a good feeling after I saved it. The quarterview didn't turn out so well... This character is my creation btw, which I am calling Lucy for now. Unfortunately, Lucy is just a floating head currently
I also tried my hand at copy drawing a videogame character using a reference image from the Tales wiki.
Any feedback would be appreciated~
Things that I know I suck at: Shading, creases in clothing and hair. I've looked at many articles going over hair, but I can't seem to get it right!

Tried another front sketch and decided somewhere in the middle to try giving her a body. So I took a look at multiple things trying to get a good feel for proportions. Hopefully I'm on the right track with this.
I'm naming this one Rika. Before anyone says anything, yeah I kind of cheated my way out of having to draw the hands

Not a lot of time to draw lately. I've taken some advice and tried to make my lines smoother and make the clothes look less like a rubber suit and more like actual clothes. Also tried doing the whole body in quarterview with one hand facing the 'camera' and the other turning away. This was a really fun one to do, albeit very time consuming. Is her body perhaps too small?
As the Japanese would say: Jishinsaku desu!
Last piece, but with color.
