At first I really struggled with trying to draw in a more western style, and I soon found that the eyes were the main cause to this problem. Using SoonSang's work as an influence, I drew the characters eyes without any detail. It reminded me of a Disney-esk style which reassured me that the design held a more Western approach compared to the Japanese influence that I have absorbed into my illustrative style. I wasn't too sure about the rosy cheeks, however I quite liked the red nose, it gave it a cartoon look and reminded me of Gravity Falls.
