OMG IT'S HER!! I've seen this anime!! It's soo good! >:3 Great work! Your art style is amazing! And I don't see anything wrong with the eyes! >:C
I totally agree with you! It gets really annoying when you can't erase the sketch and then you end up seeing it after you've coloured.

okay seeing your art honestly makes me really nostalgic because I remember also drawing like this when I was younger. It's almost like it's a step that everyone goes through to become a better artist xD Anyway! I thought at first this was an original character but it turns out to be from a show I haven't heard of. This piece is composed relatively the same as the others in your gallery, so it would be interesting to see some variation next time (or maybe a full body, but I know how hard those can be haha. Baby steps first)

As far as the anime styled is concerned you got it down pretty well - the eyes look great, and the shading on the scarf looks good :'3 Unfortunately a drawback to the anime style is that your nose looks funny, and so does her upper body (aka her breasts). A lot of beginner artists fall into this trap whenever they're trying to imitate this style, so don't feel bad about it :0 The best thing I can say is to look at references for her chest area, but don't just look at anime references -- look beyond to more realistic versions so that you don't fall in the trap of making breasts too round, etc. For the nose (I mess this up also), you can look to artworks that try to give dimension to it when the person is facing forward rather than just drawing it sideways :3

That's kind of it for now :v
tl;dr - experiment with more poses so she (and future works) won't look so stiff (but I understand if this is hard, it took me months to grow out of that, but it's ultimately for the better), check references on how to draw particular features such as nose and upper body

Final word of advice is to keep up the good work ^ v ^

practice is always good. I used to draw 3/4 a lot and had a hard time with face front stuff, but now I'm pretty okay with both haha. as for the picture, anime often does use some kind of tiny shadow for noses, which is why i suggested to look at other references for nose styles and stuff :0

and same my breasts suck lol

You just did a great job, I really like how she looks and scarfs are awesome, it makes her look a bit more cooler
