So as soon as I finished experiment 1, I immediately went to do another piece to see if I can improve upon the art style used and make it much more appealing. So far, I really like how the girl looks in this style. The line art is a little more visible, and adding some lighting actually helped a lot. I was also impressed that I managed to take a lot less time finishing the piece without rushing it (ignoring the solid background). Could I stick to this more often? Probably, but I still want to push myself in anywhere more different.
