I may be naive in my thinking, but as part of my plan to improve my artistic skills, I decided to start a new project which I call "Screenshot it". As the name suggests, what I plan to do is pick a screenshot (at random) and do my best to imitate that scene, whether it be characters, buildings or backgrounds, with my pencil, eraser and paper.
This is my first drawing from that project. It's a scene from episode 3 of Red Data Girl, the character is Miyuki. Also, one lesson, when shading make sure to place a clean sheet of paper between your hand and the drawing, otherwise there will be smudges everywhere on your drawing.
