After looking at several anime characters, I thought Alisha's hair looked a little boring in comparison to real anime characters, so I decided to make the highlights in her hair more detailed. I did a quick job at it, so I might have some parts shaded incorrectly. I think the highlights on the left pony tail should be swapped around with the stronger highlight on the bottom.

My first thought wasn't about the hair but instead: Where are the knees?

:lol:

Your drawing is looking great aside for the legs but I guess you just did that part quickly since it wasn't the focus of what you wanted to do with it. The hair shading looks great.

The reason for the legs is that's the way her legs are drawn in the sprites, but it does look goofy when the rest of her body is all detailed. I'll try to make her legs look halfway between realistic legs and her sprite-style legs.

So it's a leg fetish game like bayonetta?

The hair shading is definitely more alive in your second go. I think it looks great.

There's still something with the legs. It's like it's trying to impose a frog perspective without the character actually being in that angle. I know there's a certain style to it, but it might help to think how calves and chins would be rotated in that stance.

I think the hair looks fine in either post.

Besides the fact that her legs are much longer than her torso and head combined, her ankles are thicker than her thighs which is why she looks freaky in this pic.

You guys realize that now she looks way different from how she looks in-game.

Something about that left (her right) pigtail coming out further than the one on the right really started to annoy me, and I made it to where it's much closer to the other side. A shadow could probably be added under the elbow and the hair would now look better if it was shiniest in the middle, but I don't even know if you like it.

The in-game image...the arms seem too short...

With straight arms, your hands should go past your crotch. With bent arms, maybe hip level.

I do like the hair.
