    the key to good perspective, is a ruler, the other key is to keep your vanishing points in two point off the page most of the time... otherwise you end up with this kind of a fisheye lense thing going on. That self portrait you drew: the eyes are too high on the skull, you want them to be a little lower, the ear is pretty close to the front of the head and is facing straight at the viewer, and he has a little bit of a pez neck thing going on. Your spine isnt straight up and down it kind of curves in a backfacing c between the base of the skull (which is higher than the bottom of your jaw, look it up) and the back of your ribcage mass. Where of course the C shape reverses and curves along the back of the ribcage etc...

    The point is, look at a side view of a skeleton and then maybe redraw that self portrait.

    It seems like you sometimes get wrapped up in details and lose track of stuff. In your more wholistic redlined figures the proportions seem a lot more correct. So I don't know.

    Anyways, heaps of improvement from page 1 to now, keep pushing.

    After looking at some of Milt Gross' old material, I have done something that I haven't done in years: an attempt at sequential drawing.

    This very illustration was done in a span of a week, and I took my time with this too. However, if you think there were mistakes made; feel free to show what needs to be corrected.

    You should try reading "Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain" to brush up on basic observational drawing skills. I've read it more than once and it's made a huge difference. Great artists who make images from imagination build them with blocks from the real world. You'll be able to articulate your cool ideas better as you build your vocabulary. Draw from life and photos, look at art, research things that interest you. Good illustration isn't just about pen to paper.

    You post a lot, keep it up, you'll keep improving. Good job.

    I using markers are fine, try using the side of it. So you get different stroke thickness and the tip will last longer.

    I notice some worry lines on your stick figures. Try to get single confident strokes.

    Make a sketchbook happy, feed it a tip to improve!

    Eye studies

    What Started out as attempt at lines of Action ended up becoming a series of eye studies.

    @krysjez: Can you give me an example?

    I'm going to skip the formalities: I was rather lazy and was trying to finish LoZ: The Wind Waker. Speaking of Zelda, I managed to find those old illustrations from the original game and decided to study them. Of course, I will continue with the anatomy studies.

    This was the result of watching a video of Miyabi Isshiki...

    By the way, I haven't done anything involving my original characters in a while and I think it's time for me to do something with them.

    Hi Thank you for commenting.

    You have a lot of drawings there! A good amount of practice is definitely helpful. Keep doing it!

    As per your drawings by itself;
    From a glance, your lines tend to be ....rough. Fidgety. But a closer look and I realized you don't use too much line at points, and I applaud you for that aspect. Still, I think it would be better for you to have a smoother sketch. Do you have a H pencil? Using those to sketch first before using HB or 2B to make a lineart helps alot. This is coming from someone with a dirty sketch back then. XD

    But for shading, I noticed you tend to shade in small lines. It kinda looks unnatural and a bit blocklike, if I may be blunt.

    Also, I'm definitely echoing here; get a ruler. For certain works (architecture and perspective, and weapons) having a ruler is better than not.

    Lastly, keep continuing your anatomy studies! It's going very well so far. Try doing life studies
