I have no idea where this dude came from. Whilst I had become marginally better in the general anatomical feel of the body, I ran into my first major pain-in-the-pencil here: Cloth. More specifically: Folds. Oh how I hate(d) to draw that stuff. As you can see, the folds are chaotic and nonsensical.
Also, I got a tablet this year. So this happened. My first endeavour into colouring... Whilst I was sort of proud of it at the beginning, I was quickly told (by the almighty Sutari) that my colours were hugging the edges too much, making the pic look flat. In retrospect, I agree a 100%.
