Good stuff keep working at it I'm sure you will get better......KEEP AWAY FROM ANIME!!!!!!!! Create your own stlye if you want to stand out. I used to draw anime in High School too, Dragon Ball Z and original anime looking stuff But like four years ago I developed my own style......Take a look at my sketch book dude it looks nothing like anime.
My sketch book:
"I walk the path of Kings and Gods" - Lithiumdawn
Thank you (the link did not work by the way?). Yes, but I'm struggling because as I find that a lot of anime styles look the same, I also find there's a common thread with a lot of realism artists looking the same. It's so difficult to find that personalized style that makes you go "wow, that is different", you know?
some realism practice tonight. I will finish it tomorrow. I need help with her hand...I am not sure how I should paint it...
inspired by a stock photo...
i will update more often now...please crit. I'm a masochist...be harsh, haha.
@ Ikuru: Thank you!

more anime-esque, non-reference...for a friend's birthday
an environment tonight
i really need help with these...: |
I wouldn't worry about style so soon. Style will come to you after you go through the building blocks of art. Anatomy, composition, environments, colour theory and so on.
I would put some focus into studies than effort into style. Still do creative work, but let yourself take you wherever you wish in terms of style. The most important thing is that you learn the basics so you can twist and interpret them well.
Yeah, there is so much artists that got to doing art over the anime. As Enydimon said, style is something that comes last and mostly naturally. Well, as somebody said to me anyway, my style is a few decades away from me .
I'd like to some more studies =). Nice sketchbook so far, the gal in the 8'th post is wonderfull. How long were you doing that one?
Enydimon - Yeah, I'm going to focus on the basics from now on. I realized how much I have to do to improve them. Thank you!
Vingrey - I agree, haha. But now I want so much more out of art; as a kid I was more into fine arts, then it turned into anime, and now I think fine arts is for me. Anime can get very placid and it's hard to define your OWN style...the anatomy is so limited as well. Not saying I won't draw it anymore, but if I do it needs to incorporate realistic aspects for my tastes.
The portrait took me 2 hours...I'm actually not totally satisfied with it. I got really lazy with the bottom half and spent too much time into making her face look good. I'm doing another commission for the same person who commissioned that--planning to pay attention to the muscles of the face, mass, and anatomy through lots of studies.
Here is the next commission I am doing: working step by step on it...going grayscale to color. Critiqued through cgtalk and here on CA.
Will post my hand studies and other figurative studies later.
Great work on the faces and other anatomical features.
