Practicing painting, I'm getting better at manes I think. Anyways I'm really happy with how this came out.
Some say she is annoying and prissy but then you look at her pulling a cute face like that and the voices in your head as a collective go 'awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww'.
now this is more like it, though i still prefer manes that look more "split ends" as you would say.
You say they look more realistic, but I don't think most artists who draw it like that are trying to make it look like split ends, it's an accident and therefor a flaw.
nice colors and look
