    Rissa Kay's Gotta Improve!! ((Updated 10/14!))

    Hello guys! After the changes I couldn't log in using Facebook anymore, so I lost my old account, Randomeister! But that's okay, new account, fresh new start, yeah?

    So!
    Let's just start up with an introduction!
    I'm 'Rissa! I'm 18, and I've been interested in drawing a long, long time. A few years ago, I finally began to decide to sit down and figure out how to draw WELL, and now I'm in college in a degree in History, but I'm still interested in learning to draw well, so I can properly illustrate my ideas!

    Anyway, after this, expect lots of sketch dumps, and many updates!
    Any and all comments and critiques are welcome, but try to be constructive!

    Take a life drawing class if your university has one! I would say that and my color class were the 2 best helps I had while in college.

    The stuff from reference is pretty good even though the proportions are a bit out of whack.
    My biggest concern is the values. If you want something that's not just lines I'd recommend you to
    start in black and white and a medium value background. Don't make things too complicated by doing color at the same.
    You can always colorize later!

    I think this is great advice! Mostly right now though, I'm focusing on lines/major shapes, because I guess I always felt getting the shape down first was really important. The reason I generally have color in my sketches is pretty simple though--I get very distracted when I sketch in black. But if I use pink or blue for sketches, somehow it keeps my attention. (I'm unmedicated ADHD, so I do everything I can to improve my art while also maintaining my art.) But when I do practice values more, I am definately going to try to use black/white/gray more. Thank you so much for the advice!
