Gah! Another one ruined

 I spoiled the paint job and couldnt save it, next version of this will probably be really different. You may notice a similarity with Beelzebub from Castlevania, not entirely intentional/conscious but I always loved that monster sprite artwork and not surprising it seeped into me. I'm never sure how much I should distance myself from my work looking obviously inspired by a specific thing, even if I'm not always fully sure of what it was that inspired it.

I actually like this one a lot!
Sure, nobody's ever completely satisfied with their artwork once it's finished, but I really don't think you should consider it "ruined". Just move on and make the next one.

Thanks.
I do like it, I wouldnt have kept it otherwise, and this time it really didnt bother me much that it didnt hit the mark I was going for. But I love the central figure so much that I think it deserves a better environment and paint job to live in. But not any day soon, just so many other pictures I'm more excited about
