    i'm glad to hear that i helped you in some way.it's great that you started to understand mentality how it can be done and you've been drawing regularly.keep going!i completely agree with you about loving ourselves.honestly i didn't love myself as much as i should.after all is said and done and everyone is gone,finally i realized that there is only left me in my life.i can only know how i want to make art.as long as we want to make it,we can.keep sharing your drawings!well,i haven't drawn anything recently yet.i think i'm still afraid to take a pencil in my hand.it takes courage after 3 or 4 months.But someday i will make a sketchbook here too

    I'm trying to focus on achieving accurate proportions and putting aside shading for a bit, I might do one or two studies but most of them are going to be just lines.

    You have improved a great deal since 2009. I'm glad you've come to like some of your drawings. First off, there is a reason to like them because I see good work in some of them. Second, it's a lot easier to keep drawing if you get the occasional success. When you feel down about a new drawing, remember that you can draw some things pretty well after all. Good luck and keep drawing!

    Agreed about the improvement. I would pick up charcoal again! Those fruit and the kid's face in post#64 look good. Have you tried condensed brick charcoal?

    Thank you for the kind words! What motivates me even more is knowing that all this time I haven't been drawing regularly at all. i stopped all the time, and it is been only like a month and a a half ago that I'm starting to make drawing an habit(never before). Even though I'm not drawing for like 6 hours a day, I'm working a little everyday. I starting to really feel the will to turn this into a career.

    Thank you man! Yes, I will get back to charcoal in time. Right now I'm trying to focus on proportions but Ill get back to it in the future, specially when making value studies. I think I tried brick charcoal, but I'm from Portugal, I don't really know all the names of the materials in English. I searched google and I could only see construction things!

    This is what I'm talking about: brick charcoal. If you draw with the broad side, you're more or less pushed to make marks that build proportion, structure, and value simultaneously. Very good for gesture drawing, as well as longer poses. I was a skeptic, but it's become my favorite dry medium.

    You always see the negative things about your drawings.Try to see positive parts and improve them.You really don't have any idea how you've developed your skill.especially i love that black boy.you are really learning to use dark values.try to finish each drawing that you start.i regret so much not to draw regularly.i could draw so much better but i chose to waste my talent all these times...but don't do that for yourself anymore.nothing will come to bring you motivation.it's already inside of yourself,your soul.don't waste your talent and be more optimistic about your drawings and life,please.i'm sure you also gave up so many things for your dream.don't you wanna wait and see the final resuts?at least you can say i did my best for my dream in the end.but at this point,you can't say that when you don't draw enough i guess.btw this is my first post lol.i've been following this forum for a while but your situation made me wanna write all those things that i thought they might help you.whenever you need somebody to talk about that motivation stuff,just send a message i hope i can see your new drawings very soon.
    haha same situation here!

    I'm still a beginner and can't seem to go past that. It's been difficult. I still struggle so much with the basics like proportion, light and shadow, etc.
