Hi. Very new here, but hoping to better my artistic ability. I go by Violet Whirlwind online. I have a degree in Graphic Communications, but have been unable to get a job in my field due mostly to "lack of experience." I am a self-taught cartoonist and aspiring writer/comic book artist, but I feel my art is not quite "there" yet. I mainly draw animals, animal-people, and made-up creatures.
Some things I have trouble with are perspective/foreshortening, landscapes (though getting somewhat better), and humans (not really interested in them). But mostly foreshortening. I just can't seem to get it right, no matter how many times I try, at least the 'receding into the distance' type. It's kind of maddening, really. The other thing about my artistic ability that drives me crazy is my extreme slowness. I must get faster, but I don't know how.
Also, I kind of have low self-esteem. I DO want critique, I just ask that you be gentle about it. Thank you.
Some of my art includes the following:
