Fire Emblem Path of Radiance/Radiant Dawn Velcro is a real lifesaver when it comes to attaching armor to fabric, let me tell ya! (Definitely makes it easier to store and put away also.) I also made the back piece even though it's very likely going to be completely covered with my cape (unless there's a breeze or something at AN which would be a blessing considering how hot it's going to be wearing everything) but I made it anyway because it was on both the concept art and the ingame model so there you go. (Plus it keeps the side pieces more rounded around my waist so that's a plus.) Now to just make the boots (which I've been kind of dreading) and Alondite and it's all done!

"Emblem" - Fire Emblem series This one took a good while to do. The intent was to sort of make a kind of "coat of arms" representing the ENTIRE series (with the exception of Three Houses which isn't out yet and Warriors which I don't feel honestly needs to be repped in my opinion; I'm a huge apologist for Fates, but Warriors is a bit not quite what I was hoping it'd be, sadly.) and the background was going to be just an old castle wall with greenery and such, but decided to just make it rep Fire Emblem Heroes instead by using one of the basic backgrounds. I also was considering painting in the hands of each Lord/protagonist of each respective game grabbing their weapons, but I wasn't sure if that would look as good and I didn't want to risk it. (Plus with characters like Ephraim and Hector it'd be kind of awkward looking considering their weapons of choice.)

Black Knight's arm armor and gauntlets (Fire Emblem Path of Radiance/Radiant Dawn) This piece took a bit of doing, especially since I had to make ten separate pieces total. (I was originally going to make the forearm pieces one piece for each arm but decided to just make them three separate pieces instead to make them easier to put on and take off.) They do droop a smidge but I think they turned out fairly well regardless. Apologies for my disgusting mirror in the second shot... >,..,<;

It used to be intelligence as a youngster, but over time as I've noticed the internet become more cynical, cold, close-minded, and needlessly cruel and watching people strive to be right all the time to the point where they will gladly berate and hurt others in whatever way they can I think genuine kindness (the I'm not entitled to anything from anyone and am just doing it for the mere sake of it kind) and an open mind above all else is what I really find to be the most attractive traits in a person. That, and if you quote famous lines from stuff I like (especially obscure stuff I REALLY like but no one else does) or actually find my dumb, almost parent-like jokes funny my heart will skip a beat.

A bit late to respond, but being afraid of failure is easily the biggest hurdle for any artist in any medium. It's really all about just working on whatever your heart desires and continuing to do so until you improve to a point where you're satisfied and then once you've done that never stop improving and learning. Failure's just a part of the learning process. Also, always start with the fundamentals; drill those into your head until you've got a basic idea of human anatomy, shape, colour, shadows and lighting, etc. as it can really hinder progression if you don't have at least a basic understanding of those things. (I know it's such a boring/tedious thing to do but even if you aren't drawing/painting/sculpting people it's still fairly important to learn.) Anyone can be an artist if they're willing to put in the time and effort, so never stop practicing and you'll be just fine!
