    When you scan a drawing and it has a huge shadow over it, there's a few ways to correct that.

    In photoshop:
    ctrl+l. Play with the sliders and see how they effect your drawing. You can eliminate the shadows entirely and leave only lineart.

    You can also select the magic wand tool and click an area of shadow in between lines. Then go to select>similar. Then hit delete. You should be left with only line art. I may have messed up these directions, don't have a copy of photoshop handy atm to cconfirm it.

    If you truly interested in getting better (most people here are), you're going to have to drop the stylized stuff for a while. You can still draw comic-esque things for fun, but you should try studying anatomy from life or photos, and doing still lifes. Draw more from reference, and less from your head. No, it probably won't be as fun as drawing hot chicks with big boobs and guns, but it will make your hot chicks with guns look better when you get around to drawing them again. It's hard to find a balance between having fun and improving yourself, but you'll find it.

    On the same vein, you can become better with colour in photoshop by getting back to the basics and painting with acrylics and oils. It's certainly helped me a lot.

    And don't be discouraged if you update 5 or 6 times and nobody says a thing. Remember that on these forums you're on the same playing field as professionals. Also keep in mind the guest to member ratio. Right now, there are 91 members and 650 guests browsing the forums. That means a potential 650 commentless views all at once. So don't equate lack of comments to you not progressing or anything. I only mention it because I got discouraged about 2 years ago and just dropped myself off the site.

    Just keep practicing, and goodluck!

    noice stuff you got here, one thing that I might say is to be real constructive and start blocking out things as far as muscles and faces go. So far so good! Keep it up man.

    hey there! nice to see you in the sketchbook-section, too. your last photo for the challenge showed huge improvement, so i guess you'll show a similar energy in drawing.

    sticking with the general proportions and not going into details right now is a good way, so is working with reference. sorry, can't give you too much of advice here, because you seem to know what to do.

    best of luck for the spanish finals, see you

    Hey ivy, nice loose sketches here! Try and get yourself a copy of Andrew Loomis' book "Figure Drawing For All It's Worth". Just google A.L. Hope this helps. Keep postin bro!
