I think you're showing great improvement!! Keep it up, and try not to be so hard on yourself
I was having the exact same kinds of problems with my wrist recently- it's so frustrating and frightening! I got a brace to wear at night though, and it started to get better right away. Apparently most people sleep with their wrists flexed, which can compress the nerves there. Hopefully it will help you as much as it helped me! (Also you are right, remember to take frequent breaks and stretch you wrist, once an hour or even once every 30 minutes if it's really bad).
Dreoilin: thank you! : D (meanwhile I feel no improvement at all lol). mm yes, I ordered a brace! but it came and they sent the left hand instead of the right hahhahaha so I have to send it back. take care of your wrist!
gurzy: Thanks a lot! i have so much to figure out still I can't really comprehend it haha. but yeah I need to draw from imagination 200% more haha
in2eternity: oh thank you! colour is so hard for me, especially from my head
syrez: no way D: I always feel like I haven't gotten enough done in a day. bah if only sleeping wasn't a priority..i have to work quicker too!
pixel cheetah: i have so many proportion issues it's not even funny ;_; i will work on it, and thank you so much!
Tb0ne: thanks so much D: I wish I could see the pay-off, hahahah, but I expect it to keep feeling this way, it just means I can keep learning. I draw from my arm for the most part. The wrist problem came when I was drawing small, on thick paper, with a light pencil. Realllyy stupid of me!! I took no break for hours and yeh, well, I was dumb.
well a chick randomly approached me asking for drawing lessons (lol i don't get it either, it's like the blind leading the blind haha). a conversation with my friend went something like:
"I don't think she understands how far i have to go."
"i don't think you understand yourself how far you have to go."
haha it really hit me in a good way. even if it was a cruel/rather honest joke, it's good to hear. i sometimes think "yeah, I know what to expect, I have a long road ahead of me" but i seriously have no effin idea.
i have a lot to figure out about myself as well and my attitude towards learning, my lifestyle, and my view on the world.
well enough of this emo bs. less time to draw today cause i had to teach piano, and my wrist was acting up again so i had to be gentle haha
PFF EXCUSES WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH ME
blah i suck at lower legs and feet and hands yay. the last one is from imagination, and the middle finger is for SOPA/PIPA
ahuhhh, supposed to be a quick "self-portrait".

I'm absolutely in love with your graphite sketches.
Aragah thank you! O_O I wish they did.
wasabi89 Thanks so much : D I will push onwards!
Mystic-Spiritus i wish I could share the love! thank you
towy aw thanks. : D I don't think I'm uber depressed or anything, but it gets frustrating. well they say when you're frustrated you are learning the most(?). haha.
blahblah, i only got 5 hours of sleep and my cat is sick so it wasn't the greatest..had to go to vet, had to get medicine, give it to her........giving medicine to cats is hell o_o
but! I had a great day of getting inspired, reading tutorials, and drawing / painting from my tiny little head.
(nose studies are ref'd)

Looking at the sketch at the bottom of the latest post I have a suggestion. Try doing some studies of how the edge/crests of the pelvis shows on the surface of the body from a number of angles, including the major muscles later on. If you don't have a life model to study check out this site, it has a pretty good 3d skeleton.
wow your colors are really amazing,
but i must say, your are lacking some basics man,
hit those pencils a little harder, learn anatomy.
once you do, the drawings from your imagination become much much better and way more fun
well, thats just my opinion, its not a fact.
Aragah Thanks. Yes I'll have to keep working on them haha. it will come with time, i'll just keep working hard
Tb0ne yeah, they were pretty crap! I'll keep working at them =D
the last four days have been pretty draining. :/ I had to present my games at school (even though I'm not in school, it got into a competition), we placed first and blahblah. well it took up the whole day. then I had a friend's birthday and i watched Ergo Proxy...which was AMAZING inspiration.
i have to get up at 6 AM so no descriptions sorry T_T
I hope you don't mind but I have blogged about your sketchbook. http://www.artfreck.com/wp/art-revie...ok-eros-kwerps
Seriously awesome stuff but if you are not happy about me showing off your work just note me and I will take it down.
Keep up the excellent work.
phoenicorn: oh noo T_T I don't mind, but I really don't deserve a post on any blog. I'm not worth it at all. ;_; thanks though.
wow I'm so wiped o_o My mom is away and she left me in charge of her...duties. Well, we have Korean homestay and I had to make breakfast/lunch/drive them to school. and run a bunch of errands for her...clothing to charity, grocery shopping, then picking up the homestay students after school....
so drawing today was not my best.
But I had fun with Re-L ergo proxy fanart.
I guess this post concludes January...which would be my first full month of actually focusing on art. o_o February will be much more awesome for improvement I swear!
quick studies -_- wow these are shit. tomorrow is painting day for sure.
hands...first is observation, second is painstakingly/obviously imagination
imagination. second one is ergo proxy from imagination...Re-L

I love how you work out body values!
Your hand studies remind me of practicing more hands for myself.
Very motivating sketchbook, thanks
Risen from the Dead
thedestroyer Oh thank you~! work hard
rastaray thanks! =) Yeah I'll ..probably draw everything haha.
well I worked for half the day today. o_o
and my mom is still away so I am still stuck picking up homestay students and making sure people eat around here. also a friend popped by for a visit without warning and that ate up time...
so today was shit, and i didn't even get painting done tonight. So I just feel awful and gross and i will go to sleep now BECAUSE RAHUGHH FIRST WORLD PROBLEMS </3. well I should shut the hell up with these excuses.
besides, tomorrow will be much better. No work! =D hoorah
gestures from weird dancing videos
hands, first from ref, next from imagination. haha i'll get better after doing these forever hopefully.
arms. they are shit. I know.
WELL I WILL KICK TOMORROW IN THE ASS
THURSDAY WILL BE SORRY MwAHAHAhahahauahauhahah

great to see you pushing it!
the ergo proxy sketches look awesome.
you should watch out for proportions(specially in the last page) but dont stress, youll get it with practice.
Aragah yeah my proportions suck. well I'll get it one day some day rahrahrah D:
hmm I am up late tonight o_o it's 2AM here.
well I think I just felt like I didn't get enough done today because of work, it always feels that way haha.
unfff i can't wait to get some storyboards going, but I still need to practice more from imagination and get faster >: i'm so sloooooww.
there are so many ideas i want to execute...but so little skill still ;_; what the hell. having Obata's art (Bakuman hahah) beside my bed is a constant reminder how far I have to go... holy shit. enough complaining though I NEED 2 SLEEPZ
hahaha look how out of proportion it is!! awesome. but the second page is from imagination.
arms from mister vilppu
figures, gestures, blahblah
stuff that totally kicked me in the ass ;_; I need to find a better way to paint what the hell
twenty minute from-my-head bullshit. o_o why even post this? I dont know. too much fluff brush and ...wow I have to paint so much more.
I don't really have something to say...
Maybe a "keep on rocking" even though I wanted to say something more D:
Your sketchbook has motivated me. I mean, your colours and studies... ugh just... awesome!
I won't even say about the way you put your thoughts into paper... they are just simple yet so well executed that seems something complicated, something with a story behind it.
I can feel there's something behind it and is not just a murder...
I'll be watching you for now on... and not... in a creepy way C:
In the end I DID said something lol
