Hi, I'm therahedwig. I study international game architecture and design at the NHTV in Breda, the netherlands. I'm at a little weird time in my life, I had a burn-out past year, and until a few weeks ago pretty much anything I made looked absolutely horrendous because I was so stressed I lost sight of the basics. Gradually this has been returning to the point I feel a little good about my art. I guess it has come to the point I'm not feeling too afraid to join this place anymore.
I currently find myself good enough to be able to draw what I want, but I feel I'm still pretty average and there's a lot I need to try out still.
Old (defunct) deviantart if anyone's that interested in how I drew like, four years ago.
I uploaded a variation of stuff. The church-pictures and the self-portait are two years old and drawn from life. The inked landscape and old lady are from around april and the big painty piece is actually a crazy piece of fanart finished last monday.
I hope you'll like them.
Uhm, I guess I'll be doing some facial studies soon.
I'm at a point in my live where there's no outside institute directing how I spend my daily life, so my mother suggested I work on this comic project that had been lying around.
So anxious to make sure everything went alright, I posted my designs to a webcomic forum.
It's a little bit of TL;DR type of story.

My problem right now is that I don't want to lose the character designs because 1) It's exactly how I identify them. 2) I know that there's a good design in them, even if I can't get it out.
Furthermore, I can't really trust these people, because the feedback they give me is unhelpful, they don't seem to respect the idea that I may have an own opinion about things, and for some reason on every subject we agree is a weakpoint, they are apparantly some world experts, because they can't seem to be bothered directing me to an expert on drawing shapes or character design. (Truthfully, I don't think the person who said my CDs were bad has very good CDs himself, but that's neither here nor there)
Anyhow. Does anyone have any character design tutorials? Specifically for characters that are more on the realistic side?
