Critique: Been Trying Something New Stylistically- Want Opinions

I've been doing the same thing with my art for a while, and I think I hit somewhere I'm a little happier with- but I still want the opinions of third parties. Is this a decent style to settle on and develop or should I keep looking for something new- what do you like or not like about the style, all thoughts I'd like to hear.

It's up to you to decide if it's a style you wanna settle on for a while (and that doesn't mean that you will not change it later again).

For me the good points and what I like in that style are:
  • the clean look of the linework and colo
  • the expressiveness you can obtain with the eyes
  • the readability (even in thumbnail size, you can see what's going on, especially with the dark eyelashes which stand out)
I don't have anything I dislike about your style.

Thank you for the input, I really appreciate it! ^u^

Very cute! I prefer the first of the two ^^

I think it's good to consider how well they look with bodies, only because if you've been developing skills in body anatomy, it may be difficult to change it. Not that this should hold you back at all, just know it might be difficult at first

Coincidentally I've been struggling with the body anatomy on something of a follow-up- thank you for the warning regardless lol

These kinda look like they'd make good pins. There's something I find a bit contradictory though. For the most part they're very simplified and clean as if it's meant to look good at a small size (hence pins), but then much of the linework is pretty thin compared to the overall size of the image. So if you do view them quite small, some detail is very hard to perceive. I'd suggest experimenting with thicker ones (and maybe a bit more variety in line weight) and see how that goes.

As for whether to stick with it though, that really depends on what your goals are in the first place. Nobody can really tell you this, it's just something you've got to make up your own mind about.

Ironically I just recently came off from using a larger line size- I think I just end up with more confident lines of a smaller brush size- it's something for me to work on though for sure!
