    Improving my drawings

    Any tips on improving my drawings i feel like i am stuck at one level i am not really sure what should i improve or more like how to improve things such as proportions and perspective i think i get the basics but feel unsure when drawing, is the best way to improve to just draw things because for example when doing portraits i am always worried that i am gonna actually get used to doing things the wrong way and not actually improve my skills. Also would you recommend any books to study from, currently i am looking at some loomis books but i am unsure how to study from them should i try to copy the drawings and then do them from imagination would redrawing the stuff from the book actually improve my skills?

    Just draw. Draw real things, put them up for critique, take note of the points people make, rinse, repeat.

    It's been recommended numerous times, but Proko is a great resource for improving your approach and thinking towards drawing: https://www.youtube.com/user/ProkoTV

    Proko does cover some fundamental topics a bit quickly (in a recent interview, he stated that he is also working on a beginner's course of videos), so I also like Marc Leone's Youtube channel since he does hours of videos on concepts such as perspective, gesture: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCNP...KvmhLGQ/videos
