Wow this definitely quite different from your usual style! How should I say this? They look more realistic and "Fleshed out' while still retaining an anime art style. Are you perhaps experimenting? I think if I look closely I'm seeing some improvements with a couple of things I believe.
you are very observant! I am indeed experimenting. In fact, I have been doing that on most of my past pieces. Experimenting with different coloring techniques and learning in the process. (hence each print seems to have a slightly different coloring style) I'm still fairly new at coloring so I am still in the process of finding out what works best for me. Thank you for noticing my improvements, it's very reassuring to hear that!
