    Minella wants to improve!

    Hi! I've been floating around here a while and finally got courage to register and make my own sketchbook I have drawn a couple of years or so but didn't bother to construct things or think about bones and muscles or anything, just drew shit from imagination and needless to say didn't improve much at all. And I played videogames, MMOs etc. many years even if I wanted to develop my drawing skills but I was just always too distracted. I mostly just admired other's creations, but now I'm SO ready and willing to improve! It would be one of my biggest dreams to be able to draw anything I see in my mind

    Critiques and advice very much appreciated!

    As someone who struggles with gesture drawing I really like yours, some of them have a great sense of motion. I'm currently watching these videos by Vilppu and can't say enough about them, he's a really great teacher, if you have time for over an hour of gesture drawings give this a go.

    Very useful studies indeed - you can try to make more convinient shapes I mean that I can see how you skew the cilinders and so on. It will be in good use.

    Best wishes!
