you're right about the cheek - I've tried several times to make it darker but the dithering always ended up dirty.

this is the last that I could come up with, is it any better?
I also worked on the rest of the hair and the little part of the hood - which is a pillow shaded disaster.  I honestly had no idea how to go about shading that, but I don't want to get rid of it because then the little curled hairs will make even less sense >_< hehe.  So suggestions on that would be awesome.

So, as of now every part of the thing has been worked on at least a little bit and I'm getting close to being done.  Any CC at all is welcomed =)  Thanks

edit:  I made some other changes to the eye (the shape of the bottom lid was too round)  And also tried something different for the hood using more of the eye colors

Leel: I look back on high school and realize that most of it was pretty useless. I shouldn't have been allowed to graduate. I'm the reason our school system sucks so bad. It's damn near impossible to screw up during those years. I can't even remember how many classes I failed... algebra I, geometry, biology, chemistry, English 10, I really should have failed physics, economics and English 12, but just got lucky. Then managed to scrape up enough D's and half assed correspondence courses to earn my diploma in time. It seems really stressful when it's happening, when you're spending nights looking over notes and basically doing everything I never did do, but you'll probably go to college and realize how trivial it all was. That's what I did. Then I failed out of college/dropped out. I don't know if my point is "don't worry so much" or "worry more, or you'll be a fuck up like me", I forgot where I was going with all of this.

Strangely enough, the only class I really excelled in was AP Government. The only AP class I ever took. Unless you count gym. I was a pickle ball badass, playing with a broken arm and still getting a top spot in the tournament.

My school is rediculous, many of the teacher don't know half of what they're teaching and the standards are quite low.  I don't care too much about grades, but my parents have high expectations for me (I'm SO glad I wasnt there when my dad found out that I only applied to a community college :P) so I still have to do well enough to 'have some sort of future' as they put it. But you're right, most of that stuff doesn't even matter.

The exam turned out to be just on the articles, so I didn't miss anything from the notes I never read heh.  People from the other class were complaining that it was so long and hard and they wrote 8 pages and blah blah and I was pretty scared to go take it, but it wasn't hard at all! long, yes, but hard? meh.  All we had to do was read 3 articles (2 of which we got a week before the exam anyway) and talk about the thesis and such.  It wasn't even in essay form, just answering questions including details and examples.  Geez, and I got so worked up over it.  (for about 20 minutes, but still)

I gave up on gym last quarter, when after having done like 30 laps everyday for the entire quarter (and I didn't even know how to swim before that) I got 80% in gym because I didn't make up two classes when I was absent.  Who makes up gym?!   ugh.  So I figured out participation doesn't matter, so I don't do shit anymore.  Let the jocks have their fun, I'll hang in the corner.  Except for volleyball, I love volleyball. =D

I emailed my classmate asking whether we're gonna have questions all everything we covered this semester on the World Politics midterm, or just questions on the assigned articles.

She answered "Yea"

I don't know what that means!  Dammit now I'm gonna have to actually read my notes and such.  Eeek.

I don't really understand why the bunny is so ripped.. I think the face would be much more shocking on a cute little bunny body.  But that's just my opinion, I'm not really sure if this is an already existing character you're pixelling.

the spine is a bit off centre, but the dithering is cool.  I especially love the skulls in the pants.

But despite the awesomeness, now I'm sad cause you said Chernobyl  :(

I know it's been a really long time but... uhm.. *taps chin* good excuse good excuse.. midterms! yeah, I was .. studying >_>  yeaa...

I come bearing updates!

Worked on the little bunch of hair at the bottom, hopefully it's less buggy now.  hm I think the only things left are the top rightand bottom left corners (I'm not really sure what to do with the hood thing, to be honest.)  and then some palette tweaks.

I'd love some c/c now, since I don't plan on studying World Politics tonight (ew midterms!)
