    Yuu, not You! ~ A dump for crappy art

    It's been about two years since I started this thing... Guess it's about time I give my introduction a little update.

    Around the web I'm known as Yuu-chan, though I've taken to using the pen name Rose R. Crawford for my artwork. I'm a twenty-something year old college student from Philadelphia majoring in computer science, and I spend my free time (when I'm not drawing) watching cartoons and playing video games. I like art that's sexy, kinky, fetishy, and stylish, and I hope to be able to make art that's as wonderfully erotic as that of the hundreds of artists across deviantArt, FurAffinity, HentaiFoundry, Pixiv, and elsewhere whom I admire. One day I hope to be an illustrator of erotica or erotic comic book artist :3

    Feel free to look around, I apologize my sketchbook is such a mess ^^; I'm constantly jumping around between different styles, techniques, and subject matter, and I'm getting inspiration from different kinds of art. Questions, comments, and critiques are welcome :3

    So I tried drawing a figure using this guide: http://www.dollmakersdream.com/female-anatomy.html

    I ended up with this:

    If you fail at something, you suck at it, so trying is therefore the first step towards being sorta good at something!

    I have a sketchbook and a deviantArt! FurAffinity and pixiv too if you can find 'em.

    Welcome to making actual art. Here's your 10,000 hour instruction DVD.
    Also, I would say that if you're going to draw the figure from guides like that, you need to spend more time on them. Really measure out the lengths and such, don't make 5 minute doodles.

    It's hard work but it really pays off! Also pro tip: never ever draw anime again, it's poison for a beginning artist.

    Hi Yuu, welcome to CA. I know you mentioned making erotic art in your post, but to do that you need to have a good understanding of the body. Andrew Loomis has some good books on the subject, two that I recommend are 'Fun with a Pencil' and 'Figure Drawing for All it's Worth'. I also recommend you study the human form in realism before you deviate to different styles, it makes it easier to find out if something is off in your figures.

    http://www.freshdesigner.com/good-fi...ference-guide/ Has some awesome tips
    http://artists.pixelovely.com/ Is a great place for figure and gesture references

    All in all, take some more time to construct the body. It indeed pays off!

    This stuff is quite an improvement over your other stuff! (Also, a small tip for faces; there should be a one eye width of space between the eyes.) Anyway, keep it up!

    Not bad on the Wacom sketch, but a couple of tips; don't sketch in black, try using a darkish grey, and, I wouldn't sketch on a white background, it's not so great on the eyes, try using a more neutral colored background when sketching.

    I also just realized I gave her two left hands lol

    Next time I'll try using a brown-ish background.

    When doing landscapes/backgrounds, use a perspective grid, it will defiantly help.
