If Racing with the Clock hadn't already won for most mistakes, this image from Bells Are Ringing would be a strong contender. Do not rely too heavily on 'color balance' and 'levels'. And if you're tired and staring at an image for too long, walk away for a minute or two. Don't power through.
The woman's is a character design that I like. And there are parts of the wall behind them I can stand. But after 8 layers of drawing, I still didn't have a good composition, and I knew it. I'd struggled mostly with wrapping the two characters together in a dance, and, having solved that problem for the most part, I neglected the setting. In Bells Are Ringing, the lead character is getting ready for the big party, learning to dance from one of her friends. He isn't a major character, and barely factors into the plot. That didn't help my interest in him. More stories to tell. Let's keep moving. Nothing to see here.
