She reminds me of a female-version of the Mad Hatter for some reason....

A fun-going character she is, also a nice curveball to keep me on my feet - anime is half of why I am here in dA, I care for them as much as I do the VG ones, just that I'm a bigger VG fan ;p

Glad that you like the semi-realism take on this :D
Tbh I can't draw linearts, or understand them, so I compensate for this style ;p

Thanks again for dropping by, cheers! :w00t:

I do! I want to start into it once I get back into art:3

I hear that line art isn't neccessary in realism like paintings, so I take it that you used a sketch? :3

My style's foundation is airbrushing, so I don't use conventional sketches as they are more of a general guideline and doesn't help much (or at all) to depict anatomy in the main process. 
So my version of sketch I call it 'value sketch', I use just a simple soft brush with 3-5 tones, Smudge Tool and eraser to 'sculpt' the figure or base first, something like this: sta.sh/0233lknvzxz7

Once the base has been established, I then enlarged them and start the regular painting and airbrushing work, result is this:
M A R G A U X by Eddy-Shinjuku
As you can see, I use figure number (1).

It's an unorthodox method to start off a work but my gallery should speak the results :nod:
Anatomy is very important, it's not just about getting correct proportions, but since I'm doing semi-realism 'stylistic' or 'idealistic' manga style anatomy this step in my process is ever more so important. ;D

Thanks big time mate! :D

It was quintessential that I get to really feel the 'essence' of the character in order to materialed that, so what ever happened next is a matter about depicting that. :nod:
But of course style is prominent - realism wouldn't bring the kind of charms that of animes and cartoons.
