    I wanna get better, better better better ~

    Hi! I'm 18 years old, and hope to work in the animation industry someday. I'm feeling very stuck when it comes to art lately, so critiques are very much appreciated! Thank you!

    I like the second drawing a lot, the exaggeration of the facial features works really well. Although you might want to shuffle things around so the naked lady isn't the thumbnail.

    Your work is looking good. Looks like you just need to keep practicing to get that mileage. Don't be afraid to step out of your comfort zone and do stuff like environments and industrial design. It'll all help you grow faster.

    Sorry about that, I didn't realize it was an issue but I shuffled it. (side note, would this be considered NSFW and should it be tagged as such?)
    Thank you for the complement!

    Thank you!! I'll try to get out of my comfort zone more! I've been a "realism is boring. I'm drawing cartoons so I don't need the "fundamentals" Kinda kid until this year so even perspective and form is out of my comfort zone! (Ridiculous, I know. ) I'm making sure to practice the fundamentals though so hopefully that should help a lot.

    Watch out for that "Ridiculous, I know" thought. Don't be ashamed of not knowing something. That mindset might hurt you on the long run.

    Acknowledge your weak spots and work on them, but don't ever feel ashamed.

    I don't think the rules here at that strict when enforcing NSFW stuff. But at the same time I think having nips in the thumbnail might be pushing it. Ehhh it's fine. I'm sure if it was a problem it would have been moderated by now.

    Questions for ya'll: How do you feel about tracing and color picking when it comes to photo studies? When I do photo studies I tend to trace for a rough shape/sketch, and then I stop tracing and work aside the photo, color picking it.

    Honestly, I think tracing is a great way to learn. I used to trace a lot of faces and bodies because I wanted to practise it and I always felt sort of bad for it, but I guess it did have an effect!
    It sort of teaches you that lines and connections to look for. That's something you can't study as well from reference without tracing, because you have to make those connections yourself and don't use the original ones. Or, well, are tempted to make them up yourself. and that's tough to turn off.
    When it comes to color picking I think it's fine for practise, too. As long as you maybe spend a few thoguhts on "hm thsi color here is colder than the one I picked here" "why is this color on the skin green?" and stuff like that. It definitely teaches, too. So I say go for it !! Love the hand study and the "soft" effect you created. A tough fist and a soft hand.
