    enjoying these elf lady cat lady things

    a suggestion for helping your pencil weight: speedy fast life drawings. 90 second poses, fast fast fast.

    your inking practice looks nice so far! how about a couple o those from different pens, just to see what they feel like?

    also that last perspective sketch is sexcellent :3 those are the funnest!

    take a peek at my SKETCHBOOK?

    Thanks!

    I'll have to try those tips out. Keep on telling myself to do life studies (I've done like 2 or 3) and setup a more coherent regime of practice, but Im far too easily distracted!

    Good start and welcome to the forums. In order to add more believability to your drawings I suggest working on adding/focusing on construction to your figures and objects.

    Thanks! Lack of construction line and so forth are really a bad habit I have. I've for the most part been unable to break it much at all yet. Maybe I just need a better idea of what I am doing.

    You have some really great ideas, maybe try to use more simplified lines for your characters.

    Thank You.

    Do you mean cleaner, tighter lines?

    Because, that is a problem I am trying to work on but not sure on how well I am doing. My hands and eyes have a strange love for the frantic.

    You seem to have a lot of ideas but like i say to a lot of people--you're running before you can walk! You need to slow down a little, do some loomis studies and anatomy studies, and then speed up again. It seems you don't understand form quite yet.
