    Not bad, the emotions come across nicely in the faces, way better than anything I can make. Obviously practice makes perfect, so keep on drawing. :)

    You definitely seem to be improving. I'm not really into drawing, but my girlfriend kept pestering me about it so this is my result. Nothing spectacular but it made her happy.

    I traced the middle one sadly. I can't take a lot of credit for it

    I can definitely see some improvements compared to some of your earlier drawings. You can only get better as time goes on, but only if you keep on doing what you are doing. I remember back when my sister started drawing in middle school, and when she showed me a picture that she had drawn, I didn't think it was very good because my drawings were far better at the time, at least form what I could remember. Fast forward several years later, we are in high school and I can't draw to save my life since I stopped trying, and now I think she's gotten pretty amazing. I know it might sound kind of corny, but that's what I believe.

    You really need to start using spoilers... the Thread is getting too heavy with all those images loading at the same time...



    About the drawings, a good thing to always do is to see other people drawings and try to understand what was the process to make them (youtube drawing videos are also good) ...then, you apply that with your drawings (only mentally understanding is never enough).
    Another magical thing to do (that I have a difficult time doing myself .-. ) is to draw everyday for at least a hour.

    You would be surprised with what you can get by following this simple steps..

    Edit:

    Btw, before any of that, watch this video:




    Don't mind much about the light/dark lines, but more on the continuous lines that he shows. Start to get confidence in your lines is the 1st major step in my opinion ;)


    It's always good to warm up before drawing (something around 10/20 min. ). It will increase you line confidence and allow you to make better drawings. This is a good video to start it up:




    Good luck

    I've seen the line video. It doesn't apply quite so much to drawing digitally. I'll watch the second video later.

    Spoiler tags don't actually stop images from loading. If they did, I'd use them.

    You should spoiler huge images in general, as they are a pain to scroll through.

    Ah, it sure do. As a digital artist myself I would say it can be applied in a equal amount.

    Watch the second video, it's good to start ;)
