I've been really busy studying for my final exams (still have 2 more exams to go!), but I decided to take a bit of a break to draw something. And I decided to be really ambitious and not only draw one full person, but three!
This one was really exhausting and I kind of messed up the faces and poses. I've been so used to drawing front-on portraits that I'm really struggling with side-on and 3/4 view faces (and basically everything else.)
Anyway, this is from Psycho-Pass, a vaguely cyberpunk anime set in the future where everyone's mind, psychological state and probability of committing a crime is measured and monitored by a "Psycho Pass" and a Crime Coefficient. I found it really thought provoking with all its references to philosophy and literature, and it's definitely one of my favourites now. The only downside is that it can get a bit violent and bloody - I think the only reason I was able to get through it was because I kept looking away to read the subtitles haha. Even so, I had to take a break in the middle of the 2nd season because it all got a bit too intense. Other than that, it brings up some really interesting questions on morality, free will and the nature of law.
Sorry, wall of text aside, any feedback/critique, whether positive or negative is welcome. I still need to do a lot more practice!
And now, back to studying
