No need to pile on, kiddies.

Canons of proportions are based on averages and/or ideals. It's not at all surprising that an individual won't conform to them exactly. One purpose of having those proportions in your head is that it...
I first started teaching about five years out of school. I used to always wear a suit to class, as a subliminal symbol of authority, since I was barely older than some of my students. I was fortunate...
She's just getting flatter and flatter. You need some proper ref.
It's definitely an issue. My wife and I homeschooled our daughter until eighth grade, but that was only possible because we both freelanced, and even then we sacrificed a lot in terms of the amount...

Hi Line, sorry to be so long in responding.
Colors can change from sketch to final because, well, things change, especially when you're changing mediums. Some people liking sketches better than...
Note #s 6 and 7:
(PSSSST. Hey everybody, better not tell DreamArt about this.)
Calibrate your monitor and learn about color management/profiles. If you're printing on an ink jet printer, working in/converting your file to CMYK is unnecessary, they're made to deal with RGB files...
So you haven't done any drawing from life?
Draw from life.
