whoo, heres hoping i get the promised brownie points :P im going to enter this into the manga competition too.
i think the face is a little different from the original Hanna Blackrow, but i was focused more on the anatomy and proportions when drawing this ^_^ im kind of pleased with it
i'll admit, i hated following the how-to >_< always haveing to stop drawing to check instructions is annoying, so i improvised with a picture for referance hoping for the best
sorry for the poor quality pictures, but my scanner doesnt work so theyre taken with my camera phone -_-'
