    lovely expressions.

    Also..I'm probably having an art block, because these past few days have been slow with the drawing. Aargh!
    I've stopped drawing a month or two. You are doing great!

    Art blocks are rough! When I get blocked up I usually fall back to studies, you don't need to feel creative to do anatomy and perspective studies. I'll listen to a book on tape and do some of that.
    Another method I really like requires little kids- My niece and nephew (5 and 4) love when I draw with them- drawing stuff like dinosaurs in tu-tus, and ghost fish for them reminds me how much fun drawing is and not to take it too seriously.
    Sometimes you get so caught up in improving and trying to achieve your goal you forget how damned fun drawing can be

    k2mountain: Thank you! Oh wow! The most time I've stopped drawing was probably a week. Good luck with your art block!
    rumpenstiltzkin: Thank you so much! Woow, 6 months? That must've been hard! Glad you got through it, though.
    Rhubix: Thank you so much for the tips! I go to figure drawing class twice a week, so that helps me ease my mind from feeling creative. That is true, though. I always try and improve and never really just doodle for the sake of doodling.

    Thank so much for the tips on conquering the art block! I think I'm doing a little better, now. I switched up my sketching medium. This time, I was sketching with a pen. I might color in one of those dragons, as well.

    Later today, I'll post up my weekly figure drawings.

    umm, maybe droopy but not bigger:

    For me when I don't feel like drawing I try to do something unrelated like fun physical exercise, often by the time I'm tired out I'll be excited to get back to drawing. Even walks can be really helpful.

    ^ Interesting!! o.o I guess the droopiness makes it appear to take more space up (dragging/stretching downwards) which's what gave the impression of it growing. Oh well then!

    Yes! Nico Marlet dragons do I see?

    Your little mushroom men never fail to make me smile~ Sticky Vincent gives me the creeps too, good character design. Hope you're kicking your art blocks wimpy butt, always a pleasure to stroll through here~

    Oh yeah, those little environment thumbs, do more like that for sure! I'd love to see your characters in more environments soon. I need to work on that myself :B

    Keep it up!

    rumpenstiltzkin: I guess stepping away from drawing is the best thing to do instead of forcing it. I was going to color one of those dragons last night, but my tablet said no. Haha!
    Misplacedhippos: I didn't know that as well! You learn something new everyday! I like the idea of that! Thank you for the tips!
    BlightedArt: Nicolas Marlet is probably my all time favorite artist! Love his work! I did take some inspiration from him.
    AustenFM: Thank you so much! I'm really trying to kick this art block around. It's working a little bit! Yeah, I'll definitely do more environmental studies! Love to see yours soon as well!

    Figure drawings! I always sit in one spot during class, so I tend to get the backside of the model a lot...

    It's cool to see you working hard on the life drawing stuff. Cartoons are great, but it's even cooler to see you smacking down perceived difficulty
    Thinking connects desire with creation.
    How good are you?

    It's great to see an elderly character in your style, I love her. Just like the evil looking guy, I have a thing for evil looking guys *shrugs*. I'm still in love with your style, it's really refreshing to visit your SB every time I do. I was a little idiot not to come sooner.

    shiNIN: Thank you so much for visiting! I really have fun drawing elderly folk because of their detailed faces!

    Colored in a dragon sketch!

    great to see some more life drawings! i still think you can keep the lines a bit more simpler, try checking out vilppu´s drawing manual for some really simple little tips on gesturedrawings!

    and, the dragon looks great! its so much fun to see your cartoony style in colors!
