Decided to post this on here as well, mainly since I haven’t in a while.
Description straight from DeviantArt:
“What started out as a quick doodle turned into an on-and-off sketch that I really wanted to finish!
Based on my boyfriend and me’s twin characters in “Final Fantasy 14”: Aquila the Paladin and Miko the White Mage. My head canon is that Aquila is the stern yet loving sister, while Miko is the carefree goofball of the pair. Couldn’t remember their exact gear other than colors, so I went with what I thought was cool. Hard to see Miko’s flower earrings though, but other than that I’m pleased with how it turned out :D”
Granted I have doodled heads much longer than hands. It kinda bums me out that I find a much better way to structure heads after practicing or doodling hands. While I enjoy drawing heads, it is a comfort zone that I wish to pull out of at some point.
Head and hand example by me
Gah man, I guess I should’ve added some more info on here. I have, and still use, references, including my own hands. Funny enough that I’ve even traced them on my tablet to get a better idea on it’s shape. For finger length I try to keep it consistent with either reference or memory. This especially goes into the differences between male and female fingers. Though that depends on the character I would be drawing at the time.
The hand that I used here was a poor example, something whipped up just to make sense of a confession. Heck that’s the kind of hand I would erase before I finally settle on the hand I want. As for the cleanness of the hand in comparison to the head…well I had erased the inside guidelines to make it look presentable. Not exactly the best idea, but that’s what was going through my head at the time even if it was a poor drawing (<.<; ). Had an inkling to place a disclaimer on that somewhere, but I just went ahead and submitted anyways.
I’m also guessing that I sounded super arrogant from the way that I had typed this confession. I know that I can’t stop practicing and call it all good. It’s just what I see and felt proud of in my art at the moment. One thing I must admit is that after looking more into the finger lengths it seems that I tend to make the pinkies a bit longer than they should. Go figure (:T
Anywho, that’s pretty much the bulk I wanted to say. I realize it’s been a few days since this I posted this confession. I just get pretty nervous responding to these kinds of things.

Hey bro Happy (belated) 23rd B-Day! Sorry I missed the big day, so made you a B-Day picture :D
AAAAAAA THIS IS AMAZING THANK YOU SISTER
AAAAAA I’M GLAD YOU LIKED IT ( 9>u< )9
Super-windy-page-flying-wizard/mage that I drew some months ago. Kept seeing it in my pictures folder thinking that I’ll continue working on it at some time or another, but here it is on here~!
I basically drew it to try to be more dynamic with my drawings…and because I like the actions of page-flying-mages :D
this is so important
