    Hey, I've skimmed through your sketchbook. And I have to say, I don't agree with those who've said you've made no progress, I see big differences in many areas. It's also great to see that you mostly do studies at the moment.

    I'm curious as to how much you draw from imagination vs life. I find that if I have trouble conveying something(A body part, a particular perspective...) it helps to just buckle down and draw from life, a lot. And doing it until it just flows onto the paper. How have you been drawing?

    Okay - I took some time and looked through a few pages.

    1) Focus on one area. You've got animation, weapons studies, full figures, hands and feet. That's a damn full plate when one is where you're at. Too much actually - you're never going to get it all if you take the whole damn spectrum of arts. As Thanos said - stop. take a step back. breathe.

    2) I'd stop with hands for now. They're difficult to draw and will only serve to discourage you.

    3) Work on your anatomy studies. You definitely need to study anatomy more (again, check out sheppard and bridgman.) I'm glad to see you stopped with the shapes though - they were becoming a hinderance. You need to know the underlying structure - not just shapes.

    4) Apply what you're learning. I'm seeing some damn good advice in this thread. Your shading technique, as another user said - is sloppy. That's hurting your work more than you realize. Honestly, with how little is done art some parts, it's questionable whether you enjoy it or not. There's more than one shading technique - if blending subtle tones isn't your thing - go with Cell shading, go with high contrast, go with a two-tone, go with gray scale with separated values. All legit and useful options.

    5) I'll say it again - apply what you're learning. That's critical to your success - unless you don't care. With the amount of work you've put in, I find it hard to believe you aren't somewhat invested in learning to draw. But you need to clean up your shading technique, and you need to start building people structurally - not with circles and squares, but with anatomy - the actual muscular structures.

    6) Look up references. Look up bodybuilders, look up average joes, look at models - you *need* anatomy at this point and I don't think you have it.

    "Those who can, do. Those who can't, teach" - bullshit.

    Instead of drawing building blocks from your imagination, nip down to the toy shop and buy some. Next, spend a lot of time observing them, the way the shadows falls etc. Take your time with your drawing - this isn't a race to see who churns out the most in the shortest time. Think and you may learn a lot quicker. Just stay with the blocks and make them perfect before moving on,; otherwise you're doing yourself no favours.


    I didn't think it was possible to be called an artist when you have nothing to say. It's like being a writer who publishes individual words as books and expects to be praised for it.

    I agree with Black Spot, along with your own perspective studies. Nothing beats drawing some basic real life blocks and shape from life.

    Here is cool perspective guide from seedling I thought you might like.

    Well, I have decided to post links to some drawings that--under normal circumstances--would probably get me banned due to the content if I posted them the old fashioned way:
    http://www.newgrounds.com/art/view/f.../banana-pecker
    http://www.newgrounds.com/art/view/f...k-sucking-dick
    And here's another song I made...

    The amount of ass patting in this thread is sickening, it doesnt help you at all, but I can understand because people like to be nice.

    I'm still pretty terrible but when I first started I already had the idea in my mind the type of art that I liked, and what I wanted to draw. I would study other drawings and paintings and try to figure out how the artist did what they did. You also need to SLOW DOWN. All of your drawings look like theyre rushed just so you can post them on the internet, stop giving a shit about the internet and other peoples opinions because 99% of the time they do not benefit you unless you are lucky enough to actually receive a decent critique which is pretty rare. Your studies should look more thought out, like youre trying to learn more through the process of drawing.

    At this point these quick sketches dont seem to be helping you so I would recommend that you do some longer studies and really try to focus on the process. Take your time with your drawings and really try to understand what you are doing and stay in one area instead of bouncing around so much. I think right now you need to figure out what you like. What kind of art are you attracted to? Save pictures, get some artbooks, get inspired and get an idea of what you want to do with your work and go from there.

    When you're studying the end result doesnt matter as much as the process and understanding what it is you are doing.

    It's impressive that you've kept at it for so long, I want to see you break through!

    As others have said, I think it would be good to do a study using reference but really spend a lot of time on it and really examine your reference well. Spend 10, 20, 50 hours one piece if you need to but make it best drawing or painting you have ever done. Quality comes before speed. A good piece that took you 100 hours can take you a lot farther in the art world than a million bad ones.

    To KyTran and that other guy: I have to agree completely; almost everything in this thread sucks. Just to prove it, I just put an album dedicated to my Loomis studies: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/mem...oomis-studies/

    Anyways, it has been a while and I did these long ago.
