So post-tutorial I had a nice chat with Phil. And he helped me see that with my characters I have missed out or forgotten a few things like the Japanese Ink style which seems to have vanished in my work. So Its hide time it comes back a step. Phil also suggested I look at japanese masks/faces to get some inspiration.
So these where just me soaking it all in slowly getting back to (page no1) a more of a japanese feel to my work.
Even though Im trying to get away from the side view only I do like no 1 on page 2 as it was a nice end for that part. Long legged and very simple with nice lines.
