Feeling a little (a lot) neurotic.  
I'm trying not to get caught in this spiral "What's wrong with me? Why don't people like me? ;___;" because that is ridiculous and silly of me, but, y'know, I do it anyway.

Here's a sketch of Illya's head that I started and then lost interest in.

I am also dejected because I am severely out of practice when it comes to drawing and so I keep trying to draw things and they keep sucking. :( And I'm running out of ideas for what to draw.

What should I draw?

Feel free to continue in a comment if you have to.

I am asking this even though I have started like five drawings and not finished one of them.

EDIT: Okay I clearly need to learn how to use the pen tool in Photoshop. One of the days I will sit down and make beautiful line art, you'll see.

Wow, that's amazingly good... I mean, I know nothing about drawing, but I know what I like... and my daughter just walked past the picture on the computer, said "Illya", and walked off agin (which I think means she was impressed).

In what way is it not finished? What sis you want to add/change? It looks great to me.

Thank you. :)

This was very funny to me for some reason.

As for what I would add, probably color, like in this. But less complicated. Also, I should be able to tighten up the lines and not have it be so sketchy, but I've never really gotten the hang of that. I don't have the patience to do a lot of clean-up or to trace my sketch, which is something I need to work on. :/

I am kind of hard on myself. But I am glad that you like it as is!

I agree with the previous comment, that sketch is amazing. There is nothing that can really finish it, because anything else would make it look overdone. It has a wonderful style to it.

Oh, thank you. :) I always feel like I do these little sketches and then am kind of a failure for not tightening them up and making them more smooth and pretty. :/ But sometimes I also like the sketchiness. And also, I'm lazy.

I like it! It looks very real, even through the sketchiness.

My god, that drawing is awesome! How could you hate it!?

I'm sorry you're in such a bad head-space as far as your artwork goes. Unfortunately, I know exactly what that feels like.

For what it's worth, the sketch really is very nice. :)

Thank you. I tend to vacillate between being shocked that my drawings look fairly capable and frustrated that they don't look, well, more capable. :/ It doesn't help that I haven't been in classes or sketching nearly enough lately.

Oh art, gotta love it.
