    Hello guys!
    Been around here for a while on CA, mostly just lurking... when I not forget to log in for weeks. :D

    Anyways, I've reached a level when I'm sort of happy with my works, but want to push things forward, so maybe I could get more comissions and anyways I have still not given up on becoming a professional one day SO...

    Please take a look at these (my latests drawings) and tell me what I should pay more attention to, what is weak, how could it be better, etc.

    Oh and, just so you know:
    I always use multiple references (except when drawing with pencil out of boredom, as can be seen on the first drawing, and on the 3rd drawing where I just wanted to try out what can I do out of scratch).
    I have a pretty old tablet with no pen pressure working.
    I keep experimening with different brushes.
    And yes, I mostly draw fanart.

    Thanks!

    Hey, thanks for commenting! Not quite sure how to put more dynamism into my drawings.... well I guess I could try more challenging poses. Different angles. Hmm.

    "More practice" is always the right answer. If your "referenced" works are way better than your drawings from mind, then you need more fast sketches/live drawing/overall experience, so, you can retain what makes a work from reference good.

    I dare to say that somethings are already pretty good.

    I feel like you're on the right track in your drawings. I agree with the "more practice" advice. What I would recommend, besides gesture drawings, and more referenced works, is maybe try and find some reference with a strong light source. Just to practice figuring out where to place light in your drawings, and how it effects the shadows on forms and figures. I feel one of the things all of your pieces are missing is a definitive light source. Not that you always need an ultra contrasty piece or anything to make it good. I just feel that a lot of your shading on the faces and forms are sort of tentative as far as light source goes.

    Also, you'd be surprised how much "presence" a few keenly placed shadows/cast shadows could do for a painting's overall feeling.

    I agree with the previous poster that you are doing somethings pretty well, though. Keep it up.

    Thank you very much for the feedback!
    Yes I have to admit, I didn't do as much practice as I should have, but it's good to hear that I didn't mess up so badly.
