    Citronbalsam's Art Journey

    Intro:
    Hey guys, I am Mene and I am 26 years old. My dream is to one day become an illustrator/concept artist.
    I drew as a kid and a bit as a teenager but never consistently. I would draw for a month or two and then I wouldn't touch my tablet or sketchbook for months or years. Hence why I never did improve much.

    2009: The first year with a tablet and where I drew the most.

    2010 - 2017: Kept losing my motivation and only drew a couple drawings a year. I think I drew a total of 20 drawing.

    2018 is the year where i started taking my art seriously and began learning fundamentals. At 25 I finally realized what I wanted to do with my life.

    2018 - The year of learning fundamentals [January - September]

    Hello and welcome, the attachments in the previous post didn't upload properly The older drawings are very gaia, and you've definitely improved from there. Still drawing people from imagination a bit too narrow. But that's fine, just keep at it.

    Haha, yes the older drawings are very gaia indeed. Used to spend a lot of time on there drawing people's avatars. Thanks for the feedback! I'll see if I can reupload the attachments:0

    Heck yeah dinosaurs! Anyway, the bones look a bit too much like something out of how to draw anatomy book. With the grid like look to them looking rather forced and not like something you were actually learning from. Also it doesn't look like you're applying that sort of learning to your other drawings. I think you should just get some reference photos and try breaking those figures down and drawing that. Rather than going for the more rigid tutorials, work out your own way of deconstruction.
