    That looks amazing, Misery. Looks like some weird D&D magic item or creature.

    OH MY FREAKING GOOOOOOD THIS TOOK SO BLOODY LONG TO DO

    *ahem*

    Okay so yeah I was hit with like, multiple bursts of inspiration all at once. Time to try my hand at character creation.

    Artstyle is very heavily inspired by a show called Ruby Gloom. I'd been looking for different artstyles to try and emulate, but was having a hard time finding something that seemed like my sort of thing. But I've found two that I like: This one, and also the sort of style used in Dont Starve. That bit, well, I will be mixing that into this. I'll get to that momentarily.

    But also, the other thing is that I want to try to create some characters that I can actually continuously use... ones I can stick with, and generally do stuff with. Stories? I'm not 100% sure. I have a big and probably overly difficult plan related to this, but I'm not going to speak of that yet. I'm not sure I can do it, more research is needed. There will be screaming.

    Anyway, I've decided that her name is Holly. That name holds some meaning for me, so that's the reason. Well, not that it makes sense out of context, but whatever. Holly.

    Holly will have two states. What is shown here is a sort of "bright mode".

    I'll draw the "shade" version in a day or two when my sanity returns. Her name changes to "Hollow" in that state. A bit of the Dont Starve style will be injected in to create that (probably). I already know exactly what I want to do for that version of her... just a matter of actually doing it. But I dont think it'll be quite as hard to draw as that one up there. Maybe. I hope.

    Also I nearly went mad trying to draw those eyes. I hate circles.

    How do professional artists do this stuff without falling into utter insanity?

    Lastly, I think it's about time I sought out my drawing tablet... blasted gizmo must be around here somewhere.

    My hand hurts.

    The attempt to make it symmetrical is really cool. It’s not an easy thing to do.

    This vaguely reminds me of the Japanese Sonic the Hedgehog covers back in the Genesis days with all of it's bright, rainbow-y colors on white backgrounds and pure geometric shapes.

    See 7:31 on the video below.

    @Misery

    Just keep doing it, keep learning how to do better, look up any possible tutorials on Youtube, etc... Just keep doing it

    Doing art itself is an excellent therapy on a personal level

    One friend of mine, in this year of Covid, started sketching and finds it to be a stress reliever, just take simple moments and slow down
