Just found out that chibis are actually MUCH easier for me to draw than anything else I've ever drawn, at least regarding the lineart. That'll allow me to practice on all the lackluster parts I can't practice on, especially inking and coloring. Have a trash chibi now? gyazo.com/5d006981dfc4248fcd7f…

I actually have a hard time with them ^^; but I think if I tried again I'll get the hang of it! Chibi is something I don't often draw because I really want to stylize them haha

I feel like proportions aren't too hard to follow on chibis, and mistakes are much more forgiving than on real size stuff :o
What do you mean you want to stylize them? 
And I'm not sure if I'll do chibis too seriously tbh :o as for now it's mostly a great way to practice inking & coloring - which are skills I really lack atm :o

Yeah exactly how I feel on chibis, but I think I try a little too hard to get them right still on their "anatomy" haha.

By stylize I mean in the sense of making them...original? I guess. I see too many chibis around here that are very anime-esque and thats not a problem at all. I meant to draw them in a way that just makes them stand out more than the average :) But suppose even thats a little hard even so when the emphasis is largely on the eyes and head, whilst the rest of the body is minimalist. I just need to stop over thinking it lol

It's a great place to practice tho! :D Chibi's are great for poses as well, since the body is so constricted.

Maybe you could create another style - like intermediate chibis or something xD
