Drawn in hours of 9 o'clock on the morning of May 15, 2009. This is Flora from the Winx Club.
I realize now that this could actually pass for the real thing. Almost, but not quite. The part that I'm having the most trouble is the placement of the neck because so thin and usually (incorrectly) under the chin rather than just behind it.
You can tell that I did a little bit of erasing. Plus, this was drawn on grainy manila paper. I copied the pose from one of my manga anatomy books (How to Draw Manga: Bodies & Anatomy). I gotta say, this is a very big transition from anatomically correct bodies to disproportionally small-waisted bodies.
