    I wouldn't say more of anything in particular, just keep doing what you do, and have patience in your progress. Just do what you do, enjoy it, and feel what you draw. Progress will just happen, it's not something you should focus on, or push or pressurize (IMO). Just keep focusing on what will make you improve, really immerse yourself in it, and keep having fun.

    I'm surprised there are replies here, that's pretty neat. Thanks.

    I'm grateful for the advice Max, but I don't think progress will happen if I don't focus on it. I could definitely use some more patience though.

    I'm taking this thing right now http://illustrationmasterclass.com/ . I'm very happy in this class and I have learned far more than my brain can handle, but as usual I'm not actually doing what I am supposed to be doing (painting.) I've been erasing and redrawing my eight legged horse all week. At this rate I'll never have a finished painting, but nothing I draw looks right. It's supposed to be A Princess of Mars book cover. Now I'm going to continue erasing and redrawing it some more. The last one isn't mine but it shows what I would be painting if I was Frank Schoonover.

    Hi there! I really liked your post on the hobbyist thread. I like how colorful your sketchbook is. I don't know what to advise, though, since I'm confused myself. I'm curious what you can do with a pencil, though.

    You know, funny you mentioned, nothing I draw looks right anymore either. I have been thinking of starting a thread about this.

    Ok Leonor, here's what I can do with a pencil.

    I'm glad you like the post, but I'm afraid to read it again because I wrote it when I was tired.

    I think the problem where nothing looks right is a problem everybody has. It's just a part of the learning process. There have been a lot of threads like that so you probably shouldn't make one.

    Thanks everyone.

    I'm going to finish the eight legged horse Zorcron.

    I spent forever on this cloud, then it RAINED, then I had to wipe it down and start over.

    I really like the rabbit. The cloud turned out well, too.

    That cloud painting is just... wow. @___@ Your watercolor stuff is really cool~

    + I kind of had to turn my head for some of these. |D perhaps you could rotate the upside down and sideways pictures before submitting to save some of us neck injury lol?
