Haha, er, by chance did anybody get fooled? Yeah probably not. Anyway, I wanted to try to imitate Syosa's style. Not very successful, but I'm glad I attempted to.

I'm most proud of the head, which I definitely took the most time on.

Edit: Okay, changed mostly everything. The hair and the accessories associated with it stayed the same mostly as well as her chest/neck areas as well as the rose.

Eyes were changed, dress, legs, etc.

The only thing I am really annoyed about is the leg positioning which I struggled with hugely. I'm still not satisfied with it and I'll probably come back and work on that.

Edit 2: I don't remember everything, but basically I added shading to the hair, changed some stuff around, added details... Oh, and changed the collarbone.

Edit 3: Changed the right arm (character's view), rounded the head more, and edited the legs to make more sense.

Oh, almost forgot. I used Syosa's "knight2" piece as a reference.

- - -

Edit 4: Made legs more proportional, fixed up the hair a little.

This one is awesome and easy to fool anyone. Congrats!

I think your eyes are fine, not to worry. :)

One of the legs is too short I think. I'll fix that up. Thank you!

Another Syosa style ;P I love it except the short legs :( i dunno... Are there my eyes? O _ o'

Thanks for the crit, Chis, and the words of encouragement Metaru. :)

Hmm... Uh... I like most of it, still some stuff I'm a bit annoyed with and I'll continue tampering with it.

Some crits: the back arm is hard to read, the face is too pointy, and you could turn the shoes a little more in towards the viewer.

Otherwise the dress design is lovely! You pay a lot of attention to detail just like Syosa :D

much better, but it still needs a lot of work to match the style you're aiming for. keep working

Stratus-Stereo (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 4/2/2010 21:01

Much better now, I'd say.

Stratus-Stereo (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 4/2/2010 16:03

Aw man thanks for commenting. :)

I was wondering if it was really that bad, and well, I guess it is. Gonna refine and fix it now.

Metaru (Level 8 Brigadier General) @ 4/2/2010 15:29

this needs a hell more work. don't let the gallery deadline stop you, i'm pretty sure if you work and study him a lot more, you'll learn a few useful things.
