    I understand what oyu mean, I am self teaching myself too, I was last semester at arts school but had to drop out in part because of what you say, I was there to improve my technique and fundamentals, not to learn how to express my feelings with a lemon

    The best way I have found to improve is see how other people are studying (aka Crimson Daggers) and doing it over and over again. A really good artist around here told me that the only way to improve is practice every day, each time try to see what you did wrong on the past study and try to correct it. Obviously first times will be shit, but then without you even noticing things will start to look amazing.

    The Crimson Daggers is a study group, we work together to achieve our goals, and learning from each other is an amazing resource. Keep an eye out on the thread or facebook because people do streams daily, and multiple times too. Dave Rapoza and Daniel Warren (our "leaders") organize challenges for us to study and test out habilities.

    If youre willing to study and work hard consider yourself a dagger too!

    If you need anything I can bee reached at Skype: alvilval.

    Keep it up!!

    Hey~^^
    I will watch all your future posts in your SB
    And I'll watch yours~

    Hope you get along with your tablet fast, so you can do even more impressive stuff!!
    I had one before, I consider myself work just fine with it~but it broke=.="

    might be better to think I'm not good yet than just settle down and don't get forward now. I will try to hold my promise to post something everyday. I have a lot of time at night
    You're right

    Now that's a good gun shape over there~
    And about laziness, I'm a pro! X'D<<pathetic
    An advise: don't waste no more time, or else you'll be cursing time for the rest of your life O^O<<or maybe that's just me..

    All right then.I'll come back on the next update.

    You're right, it's all about the start.I get into the mood once I do.

    Sparta, now the second and third drawings are gorgeous.They got the action and intensity.
    Yes you need to work on your anatomy drawing skill and lines flow.
    I suggest you draw gestures, that would be from posemaniac.com
    I don't know if you know it already, but anyway it'll help you in both capturing the form flow and action, as it'll help making your lines more flowing since you don't lift your hand off the paper.
    Another site I use as a refrence is shutterstock.com, you can find great dynamic poses here.Try for example searching "modern style dancer".I found really handy poses.
    And lastly, some really useful stocks I found on DA. Here.
    I hope it helped.

    Traditional art sure is a good practice, and good luck on your tablet

    I really like it~~
    You know, I was about to ask you what's that thing in the bottom left XD
    It needs more highlight don't you think?Now that I think about it, the kids need highlights surround their shapes.

    I thought about adding some more, like vehicels in the background or blood running down the head of the jumping kid, but I thought that would be too much and make it look unrealistic.
    True.I'll keep that in mind~
    The smoke and the particles of the explosion in the background isn't too good.
    Yeah you should've used a reference.

    Anyway, it's a great mood switch here~
    Keep up the good work!

    A colour study:

    I tried a new blending "method". The colour blending at the top was just blended from one, to the other colour. For the blending at the bottom I used a higher saturated colour in the middle. This makes it look more colourfull overall. I'm sure I will need this one day, and also try out in my next painting.

    maybe I will do some sketches for a new painting tonight, if not just some more studies.

    Good study~
    Though the first method doesn't provide good contrast but it might come in handy.
    The second is totally gorgeous.
    Keep studying and posting~
