I have really interesting titles.
more life drawing
less boring stuff
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.
nice stuff! like how you work with a lot of different materials. i should start doing that again... keep us updated!

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.
Cool! I really like how that concept is coming along.
wow i really like the amount of work also those animals are looking good !
more from life definatly and it would be awesome to see a few more "finished up" pieces
thanks for posting keep em coming !

Thanks Alesoun and Shalite. I'm still surprised with how the cloud turned out, all of my other cloud attempts I've done in my life are horrible. I guess it was bound to work sooner or later. Having white gouache helps. I abandoned that watercolor "rule" about not using white or black paint.
I don't know if I'm just in a bad mood but I'm not happy with my art lately. The only thing I can draw is dogs. I remember being four years old and being able to draw a dog better than I could draw anything else. It seems wrong that I am still like that. All of my still lifes look cubist and all of my humans look mentally ill, and cubist, also.
Advice? I was thinking I should paint less, and draw more, my lack of drawing ability is holding me back. Lately every time I draw something I want to color it though.
----- Love that sketches. Really nice working, keep more posting & creating mate...... GOOD LUCK!........

Second dragon in the last post is neat. Effective use of negative space.
If you want your faces to seem less "flat," draw a few 15 minute sketches of different faces using only blocks and spheres.
Also, I see you drawing skulls. Good. Feel the shapes of the skull, try drawing one from memory and then get reference to see where it could be more accurate.
