Mulan (and Mushu!)

I like this just 'cause she kinda looks like one of those saints you see on stain-glass windows. I almost didn't put the sword in, but I'm very glad I did now :-)

Flowers and their meanings: Orange Mock - deceit, Orchid - beauty, Snapdragon - strength.

Ah, this is gorgeous. The use of color is well done! Keep on practicing with the hands. I know it's hella tricky, but once you master it these works will be flawless. Especially if you're working out of something like illustrator (I'm assuming) it's tedious to get the fluid curves and angles all at once.

I really love them, you manage to have them recognizable but at the same time they do have something special on their own!
Well, congrats for your work, thanks for sharing it with us! :D

I realize someone has already pointed out that she looks European, and you've acknowledged it and been very polite, so I'll just throw in my two most constructive cents and leave you be: not only is it the eyelids, it's also the hair color. She has very dark black hair, in a way that white people can't have: you've given her dark brown/black hair with a very definite brown tone. I understand the aesthetic of gradient hair, and the starting tone is fairly dark, but for her to still look Asian, it would have to start out even darker. Mulan has black hair.

Don't take this the wrong way, but if you're having trouble drawing the eyelids close enough to the eyes, sometimes it's easier to not draw eyelids at all: it gives a similar effect. As it stands now, her eyelids very noticeable, and pretty much not possible for someone with her type of eyes. I did have a hard time recognizing her before I saw Mushu.

I love the rest of your collection here; thank you for putting in the effort and posting it, even if it isn't always perfect.

(If you'd like advice on drawing characters of color -- a majority of art tutorials do focus on drawing white people -- I personally find these most helpful: [link]).
