Ugh I can't believe I finally finished it, this took me forever to do

This was originally an ink drawing I did on paper, I attempted to color it with markers but since they were coming out too dark I decided to just use colored pencils instead. It'd been many years since I last used colored pencils as expected it didn't turn out as good as I wanted it to be, so i decided to fix it digitally. At first I had only planned to make a few revisions, but the perfectionist in me had other ideas so I ended up almost completely redoing it. But I guess thanks to that it looks a lot better now than it ever could have been if I hadn't changed my mind. My only regret is not finishing it sooner orz

If you wanna know how it had originally looked like on paper: sta.sh/0yr6pooi9bc
Please don't look at this piece of ugly garbage

To be honest, I actually appreciate the colored pencil version a touch more. You are 101% entitled to your own opinions about your own art, but, whenever I see really well done traditional media I get a heart-on Pink Heart Icon . I guess because a long time ago (a loooooooooooooooong time ago), I used to use colored pencils instead of just digital media alone, and I was never even 1/2 as good as you are with it. ^^'' I love your digital version as well though, and I definitely don't think the colored lineart is a piece of ugly garbage. Your art is gorgeous. Own it! Adorable Girl Anime Emoji (Heart Dance) [V6]

Oh wow, thank you so much~!! Even to this day I still don't really like it very much, but I am delighted to know that there are some who genuinely like it Blush-Small Oh really? I actually used to be kinda good with colored pencils back then but ever since I got into digital media my skills have all but diminished, so I think your colored pencil art would be much, much better than mine if you ever tried it again after so long (because my traditional art skills suck now orz) Lovely Shoujo Emoji (Whew Sigh) [V3] But still, thank you so much for your kind words~!! Heart Love

The first & second movies are recaps of the original TV series while the 3rd one is the sequel with a whole new storyline.

Yeah, I think what you're thinking of is the movie, there's already been a trailer for it too ^^

Yeah! Except for the fact that she turned into a demon in the 3rd movie, which is a spoiler so if you haven't seen it yet then whoops ^^; Homura's still my fav chara tho, and I have an unfinished sketch of her demon form saved on my hard drive. I'm planning to actually start it once I finish a bunch of other wips I'm still in the middle of working on, so it's probably going to be a long while before I can pick it up again OTL
