Excellent portraits.

They remind me of ancient artsy games.

Day 1 of what!?

I really like them, although the woman's forehead is too big and her hair looks like a sausage. Other than that they're awesome! :)

You are most certainly correct. Also for some reason she had a huge philtrum. Fixed slightly but now it looks messier cos this is time-consuming as fuck

I've always found women's hair a pain in the ass to draw or pixel. I think she just needs a fringe.

I used references mang. I'm not good enough to freehand stuff. But these are by no means final, so hopefully the characters will slowly start to gain their own identities.

I updated with another. This one seems to be the most "anime" and least "80s computer art". I think I'm going for somewhere in between, but I'm not sure where. That's it for day 1. Mainly because it's already day 2.
