                Love this as all your art! Only think I couldn't stop staring at was that her brain/head appears dented in and anatomically off or is that the style? Wish I could come up with characters like you do, your skills blow me away!! Still my favorite channel!

                                                Waffles, you need to invest in a pencil extender, or do a DIY version. XD

                                                      I haven't drawn in a very long time, but watching this, I decided to change that. I love your videos and it's really impressive that you've taken on the Mer-May challenge. I also really like how you explain sketching (in a different video) as well as shading since those are the parts I struggle with the most in my art. Thanks so much, Waffles!
