    Hi there!
    You start right away with studies! That's awesome!
    I think what kingkostas mean is to draw the line fewer times. Sometimes you (like everyone else learning to draw) draw the same line a couple of times, to make it fit your idea of the image. Resulting in a hairy looking line. So with more confident lines and fewer strokes you get a cleaner look. The lines dont have to pe perfect and straight they just need to live their life. I hope I make any sense. I was king of fuzzy lines so I know its hard to clean up drawing style.
    Keep it up and work hard! Cheers!
    oh and welcome to CA!

    Another Update. I know its been like a month and 3 days since my last but i havn't really done anything note worthy.

    I'm attempting on doing a collab with a friend but i need any advice on landscape drawing anyone can give me. I know the whole draw from life but i could use some technical advice about it.

    So yeah started working again in a hell hole to pay for college. Thats alright though cause now that i've woken up at midnight and have nothing else to do i updated my SB. All of these took like under an hour besides the more polished shaded robot which took like 6 hours and the helicopter that is taking up like 3 days worth of time for just the concept of it that isn't all that great.

    A 10 min self portrait i did today. You can thank the animator Egoraptor and the webcomic GG Guys for the poop thing. It was the face in Awesome Center that made me make his face and draw it and the comic cup of soup that i put that down there.

    Not my best work but again its only 10 mins and it was fun.

    nice work man. Your line is a little scratchy though and your shading lacks definition, but keep up the good work and improve as much as you can.

    Yeah i'll be working on that a lot in a portrait I'm doing for a friend. Most of these are under 5 mins so as you can imagine i didn't clean them up or anything.

    I second Joce's speech, try to do some more (much more) anatomy studies, as well as life drawings, and try to understand all the forms and relations between the shapes and sizes.. pay atention to contrasts and lighting, etc. the way to do it is practice, nothing else!

    keep drawing!

    @AndreRuben - Yeah i do need to spend more time. There is just a lot of drama between me and my family that has just started so its getting hard to have a moment of peace.

    @andres333 - I need to do more of everything it seems. Didn't really think of doing gesture studies though so thanks for pointing that out.

    Nice, keep the studies going. The last WIP is interesting, but indeed you have to upload smaller pics so we can actually see them on fit-screen. Try to draw softer lines and make shading using lines on different directions. In that way you will see how the skatch will be more easy to work on going back and forth. Thanks for stopping nu at my sb man. Keep up and take care.
