    Ryujisama's Sketchbook. Amateur Artist Looking to Improve on his own Style.

    Hello all! And before you all start panicking, Anime is my main art style because it's one of my main influences, but when I started to seriously learn how to draw and apply it to learning how to design games, it wasn't what I used to train myself to be a better artist. I learn from observing real people and then stylize it into my own style. That being said, I know there is always room for improvement. I have a Deviantart and a FurrAffinity account, but I haven't gotten much help from those sites. The accolades are nice, but I'd rather people comment on how well/poorly I did something. So I'm posting my stuff here to see if you guys have something constructive to say. A word of caution, I am and adult, and therefore like/am asked to draw adult things; and if the NSFW prefix hadn't warned you enough, then I'm not sure what is. Though I'll try to keep it as tame as possible. I guess the only thing left to do is start posting stuff I started posting on my DA account up till today to show you guys my progress. Here goes...!

    These images are for when I decided to make the transition from traditional to digital. Before I had done so I had picked up drawing again after a long period of not doing so. These were done with a mouse, because I didn't have a tablet yet.

    Here, I started getting more serious with my artwork. I began looking into anatomy study, but I was still into anime. Since I was submitting my work on DA, I joined a club and began using one of their "projects" as a way to motivate me practicing. Also, as I was using Photoshop at the time, I began dropping in some lazy backgrounds.

    Around this time, I took to some anatomy books I bought at Barnes and Nobles, and started practicing with human anatomy.

    Here, I decided to experiment with shading and lighting more. I also started showing signs where my own style was starting to appear (although it wouldn't solidify until many more drawings later). The last picture here serves as a bit of a checkpoint for me, to see how far I've come in terms of skill.

    Finally got my hands on a tablet, and started switching to going 100% digital. I was still using Photoshop at the time to achieve some neat effects, but I soon heard of/switched over to Paint Tool Sai. I stopped lining my drawings with a mouse, and started doing it free-hand.

    Getting comfortable with drawing on a tablet with Sai. Also started experimenting with drawing anthro art (got an FA account by now).

    Looking good! I would suggest you continue those figure studies, because learning form will only make your more expressive line work better! Great start mate!
