Strike a Chord :Original: by AkiAmeko Strike a Chord :Original: by AkiAmeko
Ooooooooooh, something different! Well, it is Aki again. :XD: But I wanted to play around with some semi-realism pencil shading... Done almost entirely during school or church. :XD: OH YEY.

I was originally intending to mess with it some in photoshop to achieve a particular look that I saw one artist do, which I still plan to do, but I thought the original would make a nice deviation in and of itself. I really like it, although her hand being too big BOTHERS ME. D:

Oh wells. We'll see what I come up with later for it. X3;;

(And yes, no pointed ears... I wasn't focusing on the character herself per se, so I didn't include them.)

Aki Ameko (c) Me!

X3333 Thank you! I really should have used better pencils though... I did this with a mechanical pencil. o.o;;

I use it to draw all the time even though I shouldn't. XD;;; I hate sharpening pencils. >(

My problem is, even just when writing, I can never get them to sharpen correctly, and in the instance when I can... It breaks within two seconds. XD

I particularly like her; her face seems very serene and her hair is so fun and flowy :)

It's so pretty! o_o I actually didn't notice her hand being too large until I read it in the description, and even then, it doesn't distract from anything.
