Watched the MGS episode of Boundary Break, felt the need to draw a little Meryl.

I was going to line all around, and then wondered… why? The foot (which is sketchy and kind of not properly defined anyway) isn't actually the focus of the drawing. Your eye shouldn't be drawn to it.

However, I probably shouldn't have left it as the ONLY part of the drawing that is that sketchy. If I was properly trying to achieve that look where only the focal point of the drawing is properly detailed, I should have left a whole lot more looking sketchy/roughly painted.

Also I don't seem to know how to draw that foot right now oops

Also, thanks! I'm pretty happy with how it turned out!

I think my eyes are just drawn to it because it's an area of high contrast (light foot, dark background). The eye also tends to follow it (head -> baby -> further down the diagonal, the shoe).

Yeah, that means I should go over it with a nice fuzzy airbrush and deepen the shadows more, to bring that focal point back up. It doesn't necessarily make sense from a lighting point of view, but it does compositionally now you mention it.

If I can be bothered.

So you can either airbrush it, or airbrush it off.
