So right now I'm trying to focus on improving my anatomy and getting out of the irritating step-by-step manga style I'm so used to.
I own a few books on drawing and anatomy too but I find the language too wordy and I need some guidance to how best to practice. I've also looked at the posts on this forum and elsewhere on the web but I feel I need some personal one-on-one help (if I can get it.) I just joined so my sketchbook is kind of blank but I will be posting some images tomorrow. (One image is posted if anyone wants the general extent to what I can do from imagination).
I know some basic color theory and have had some experience in painting (both traditionally and digitally.) But value is something that tends to escape me.
Any help is much appreciated.
