    Thumbs up Hi I'm from deviantart!

    I discovered this place by looking at chasethehedgehog. :/ This looks like a nice place for critique of my works, mind you I'm not very good at art. I only do art as a 2nd grade hobby, I mainly do them by drawing them first and then cleaning them up with MSpaint. Yes paint, it's the only freeware okay? Anyway, comment away!

    Chase is simultaneously the worst person who ever came here, the person who we had the most fun with, and the best advertising this site could get from those who scan ED

    First off you'd get more comments if you posted your images directly on this site (IE upload them) if you go to edit->advanced then click manage attachments you can upload your pics directly here so we can see them without clicking links (there's a nifty tutorial on how to do that in the lounge if you get stuck)

    From what I can see you seem to like to go for a cartoony look. One thing you might be overlooking, even if you don't quite like is reality, is drawing from life and the essentials of art. Yes, it can even help you with cartoons, as a quick look at this cool cat's work will show.

    Notice the flow, the emphasized features and the sense of form you get even though they're mostly 'flat' designs. Studying the human form, your sneakers, anything around you can help you figure out what 'flow' and 'form' is al about.

    I agree with everything Jason said, but I'd like to add that MS Paint is definitely NOT the only freeware out there.

    There are oekaki programs all over the place that are pretty sophisticated, not to mention GIMP (look into it!) and a few others. Just a google search away

    Good luck with your digital journey.

    Put a smile on my face.

    All though art isn't super detailed it was a bit soothing and made me smile a little. Funny thing is I allso found CA.org by looking up tracing on ed. then finding an article about chase.

    Why, this person has a full gallery on DA, has been there for months, seems to have a community of friends, is humble, and is only 16.

    Just because she's a beginner from deviantart doesn't mean she made this up as a joke, and I think it's a bit rude to call this a joke when, like I said, the evidence isn't there.

    I don't think it's a joke. If the artist was acting over the top, then I might.

    But so far, this new person hasn't claimed to be awesome or anything outrageous.

    Let's not feed imaginary trolls, anyway, okie dokies? ;P

    No problem man, we all munch on ground stompers at least one day out of the year

    Heh. That's something I like about CA: people will give thoughtful critique to absolutely anything. Because...you never know.

    I was once on the receiving end of a critique so savagely nasty, I marched straight out of class to the office and changed my major (sketchbook).
