Stunning! I love the detailed spread of in-progress pictures. It not only makes the under-structures make sense, but shows the journey and effort of the piece, which I especially enjoy as someone who sucks at 2D art. :wink: Lovely, lovely job!

@EriChanHime @bethntim I used to think I suck at drawing until about last year. Following tutorials made it much easier for me. Still not where I want to be but working on it.
@Bunny1kenobi @TheMistressT @PrincessP @sheepBlue @JoyfulClover Which is also why I try to document my progress. Helps me solidify the steps in my mind. Happy to share it. Hope it might make it easier for others.
