I really like all your work, obviously. The semi-realistic pics are probably my faves, likely because anime style is so everywhere (and not knocking or putting it down, there's just a LOT of it), and I *am* a fan of realism. What I end up seeing on dA is either anime, comic book style, or totally major and painterly/realistic and finished and ready to be published.
I like your realism. I think you're wonderful at it.
i love the semi realism, but i prefer seeing the anime characters looking more anime then semi realistic...but don't let that stop you from experimenting! O_O from what i see of your final fantasy drawings i definately wouldn't mind seeing hisagi in semi realistic form, or sesshoumaru for that matter XD
