    Hey man ,so first of all if you are realy drawing daily you are going to be realy good soon . So just keep it up even if u feel like shit.
    2nd i`d recomend you to use ref as much as you can.Because thats where you are going to learn the most.You will see the details,composition etc..
    You cant come up with everything from your mind.Its impossible. Atlest for me it is . I did the same mistake for a realy long time cuz i tought that using ref is lame.

    Your stuff is not so bad as you say the lines look realy fine.

    ohomoho : Thanks for your post ... I really think .. well actually i used to think that using ref is kinda "lame" now i know it is sometime even recommended to use ref .. and sometimes i really do use it ... keep on eye on my post beacuse i will going to post daily now ... And i will use ref in my works from now on
    Thanks for your motivation post

    yo
    The selfportret is good but try puting some more contrast in your images its like too gray. And the try to follow the shape when you are shading. It realy feels better.try redrawing other ppls drawings/paintings.

    Try to put more tone value in youre portrait it gives it more dimension. and look at some anatomical study's from other artists. Keep on drawing.

    your last portraits are really good, but i still think that you could push the values more. The next portrait you do, you could try to be really "violent" with our shading.

    hello!

    Keep it up, i can see the progression in your work already just from these few sketches.
    You are far from struggling, you are indeed growing.
    I can tell from my own sketchbook pages right now, i am near and around the same level as you.
    My suggestions to you are too experiment with line thickness, pay attention to (in life) and experiment with lines of varied thickness, i switch from a 2h to a 2b sometimes just to enforce a darker line.
    I noticed some of your alien characters look flat for some reason, like they are all scrunched up and no depth. Maybe start with a loose version first quickly get the shape and the depth down you want to achieve. Visualize it being in a room taking up space.
    I would love to add commenst about foreshadowing and perspective but i am still learning how to master it myself lol

    I am going to try to upload some of my sketches this weekend, you have inspired me.
    cheers

    Seem's as with most novice's sketchbooks we are in the same boat, you've got some great portraits you just need to reinforce your drawings with truer blacks.

    Hope you start to get more comments, comments are all inspiring its just ashame novices dont gettem that often lol.

    Macido - Thanks ! It makes me very happy and somehow i am amazed that i could inspire someone to make more art !

    adammelo - Thanks and yes i wish i had more comments but thats not really my goal here .. i just want to get better and that other people could observe my art.

    -UPDATE-

    Just got back from the army .. in the meantime there is only 1 page i will update tomorrow with more drawings thats because i need to draw them D:

    Unhappy

    I WAS WRONG

    Hey guys its another crap of an update .. sorry but i just cant be satisfied with my drawings.
    I feel that i am stuck in the bounds of normativaty and just cant get out of it and get better.

    I would like to ask for some tips and advice on how to improve my character and costume design and how to improve my shadings ability.

    Hope that someone could help me and could show me some ways to improve.. Thanks !

    Ello RainShinobi you have a good body of work. I suggest getting your self a copy of Andrew loomis or Bridgemen figure drawing books.
    You have some nice lines but i think you could be pushing your value range darker. Until next time -Omerta
