Johis the Fox, new ref by Lhuin Johis the Fox, new ref by Lhuin
FINALLY, a new ref for my character/alter ego! I've been wanting to try making one for ages, but every time I start doing it I just feel like it doesn't look like my character. Why are your own characters the most difficult ones to draw... : D 
Then I had a brilliant idea, I'll just trace my own old drawing! The old one was really old and I wanted to make a new one that would look more like my current style I guess, but the old ref had a lot of sentimental value for some reason so that's another reason it was so difficult to replace it. But finally I'm happy with it! Don't know why I didn't think of drawing on the old ref before haha.

I'm not going to scrap the old ref, it's going to be an additional one with an extra view and my character's partner who is also megamisfit's character :D I left the side view out of this one but it can still be seen in the old one.

I changed her eye colour a bit as well and added another way to draw them, her eyes can be drawn in just one colour too if the bi-coloured thing is too weird to draw or it doesn't fit a picture. I struggle with them sometimes haha! But they're based on my own eyes so I wanted to leave it.

Here's the old red from 2011

Funny to compare the old one to the new one especially cos it's essentially the same picture, just with 3 years between : DD

Yksinkertaisen ihana. Niin hyvin sopii toi ruskea ja silmien väri toistensa kanssa ja ne jotenki jännästi täydentää toisiaan o3o

Eee thanks! I love your fox character too >u< I have a soft spot for characters with 'unnatural' colours that are done really well and aesthetically (and look almost real in a way haha) ! *_*

I like the brown in the eyes. ^_^ It looks... realistic that way. And... not as blue. I donno.
I like how you drew her in this version more than the previous. I guess it's just the little details.

Thanks! I like the bi-coloured version more too, but I thought it would be good to have a simplified version too since in some cases the double eye colour doesn't really fit. I struggle to do it sometimes too haha!

I wonder what color it would be if you mixed brown and blue together. I would think it would be closer to the right color than straight blue, but it could look odd instead.
