New Art Style (Read desc.) by Box-Of-Roses New Art Style (Read desc.) by Box-Of-Roses
I've been having this problem for a long while now.

The "square head" art style on the left is my original style. I've been using that style since mid 2014 to now. And it's been improving ever since. However, I've become to realize that it's very hard to work with. Did you ever notice how I always draw characters facing left or right to a certain angle? I never draw a front view or side view because it looks awkward AS FUCK. It's the unusual, angular shape that makes it look weird. It's also hard to draw facial hair on men. It's the reason why I only draw mustaches and goatees. And drawing people with their hair tied up can look a little strange in my art style. 

For example, one of my OCs, Johnny, is a lumberjack. You know most lumberjacks have beards, right? I wanted to give him a beard, but it was hard to draw one with my art style so I decided not to give him one. I'm still debating on it though.

You see, if your art style has that many limitations, it's not a good art style. I've been thinking about changing it for at least half a year now, but I just didn't feel like it. I was too attached to that style since it's practically 3 years old. But now it's finally time to let go of the past. In fact, a user named GumiGummy said that my art would be better if the heads were round. And frankly she's right.

The art style on the right is my new one. I know it looks a little anime-ish, but it's easy to work with, and it doesn't look as awkward. I feel like I will have more freedom when it comes to different angles and hair styles.

And in case you were wondering, the only change to the new style is the head shape and the eyes to some extent. Everything else is exactly the same. 

Now this is the part where I ask you for your opinions. By all means, tell me what you think. And while you're at it, say goodbye to square head. This will probably be the last time I'm drawing it.

Otto belongs to me by the way.
