Since 2013 is over, here's my summary.
The Pic I Like The Most
There were a few pictures that I could have put here, but in the end I chose this picture of the Despair Queen from Dangan Ronpa. Although the bear clips look weird (especially the one on the right), I think Junko's face turned out amazing, and her hair looks decent.
The Pic I Like The Least
You know how you're supposed to improve on your art the more you practice? Apparently that's not the case. For this being one of my last pieces of 2013, I have to say I'm very disappointed in myself. I don't hate how Ymir looks, in fact I like her profile here. Krista, on the other hand, looks atrocious. She doesn't even look like herself, and she looks way younger than she actually is. Not to mention, Ymir looks decapitated, so that certainly doesn't help.
The Most Faved Piece
Given the rise of RPG Maker Horror Games, this doesn't really come as a surprise. I'd have to say that I think Ib turned out the best, followed by Viola. Poor Aya, she looks really awkward here.
The Least Faved Piece
I could have sworn that there were more pics that got no faves
, either way I know there's something wrong with either my eyesight, or my memory.
I think the reason why these two pictures in particular got the least amount of faves is the lack of recognition that their source material gets. You usually don't hear too much about Star Ocean, and if you do it's usually not the first installment, and unfortunately for Ronyx and Ilia (especially Ilia, since Ronyx is present in the second game) they sort of get the short end of the stick in that regard. Plus their faces look really awkward, and the coloring looks sloppy, so that might have something to do with it.
As for the latter picture, I guess when people hear Shin Megami Tensei they usually go straight to Persona, but there are other games in the Shin Megami Tensei series, too. Don't get me wrong, I don't dislike the Persona series, in fact they were my gateway into Shin Megami Tensei, but it gets tiring when people just assume that the Persona series is the only thing that Shin Megami Tensei has to offer. My personal favorite Shin Megami Tensei game is the third installment of the main series, Nocturne, the gameplay is challenging and the story is riveting, plus the characters feel like real people. The picture that made it into the "No Faves Hall of Shame" is the picture of Hitoshura reacting to Isamu's reason, and it makes me sad considering that that was the best Hitoshura I've ever drawn.
The Piece That Took Awhile
I had to look up how to draw a proper profile, so naturally this took a long time, and with outlining and coloring it took even longer.
The Piece That Took No Time
Just a quick doodle of Snake and Clover from the Zero Escape series. I literally whipped this together in less than ten minutes, no wonder it sucks.
Most Artistic Piece
This is the only picture with a legit background. Plus, someone commented saying it looked like Mexican folk art, so I guess I have an endorsement for this decision.
Least Artistic Piece
They're just reaction shots for me to use on Tumblr, nothing really artistic about them.
