Y’know that feeling when you look at something for too long and it starts to look weird to you? Or when you hear a word so often it becomes strange? Or when you look in the mirror and all you can see is the big pimple on your forehead?
Well, I’ve been staring at my drawing for a while now, trying to decide if the nose is crooked. I know the mouth is—that was intentional. Now I can’t tell if everything else is correct or if I’m paranoid. I could be overthinking this. In fact, I know I am, and it shouldn’t bother me this much.
Something is off. Right? Or have I been looking at it too long? Or is it awful and I’ve tricked my own brain into liking it?
Yes, I’m asking for critique here, but keep in mind I did this with my finger on a laptop screen. Also like the third thing I’ve ever drawn lol. Just saying I didn’t come here to have my ego obliterated, as I’m sure some of you guys would find it easy to do.
But please tell me if there’s anything I can fix ^^
(also if you couldn’t tell, I am quite the perfectionist, so I will not be able to sleep comfortably until this is resolved in my head)
Update: After some tedious editing and tough decisions, here’s the (hopefully) improved version. What do you guys think? This version or the smile version?
