    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?

    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 turned all of my pictures rightside up, but sometimes conceptart flips them around again. When that happens, I can either just delete the pictures, or leave them there, upside down. I've tried reattaching them, no luck.

    hello
    when you render by cross hatching it flattens the image and the x patterns could be distracting for the viewer, i'd suggest rendering with lines that 'follow' the form (eg for a sphere it'd be curved lines)
    hope this helps

    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.

    I really need to do some real work here... I have too many half-started drawings.

    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.
