I don't have a lot of projects that require me to design female characters. So I'm trying to get better at them. I used no reference so it's taking a little longer than it should. But I want to test my knowledge of anatomy. But at this point I think I need to go back to anatomy studies and learn to block them in properly in the beginning stages. My process isn't efficient when it comes to designing characters. In fact I'm discovering I need to go back to design exercises in general. I need to build my "visual library" as Feng Zhu would say. And the only way to get better at that is to keep drawing and be mindful of design.
