    So guys, Im not really an arty person, so lately I have been trying to practice and improve my skills. Im pretty happy with my progress thus far, but I would love some tips from the great artists on the temp to help me get even better!

    I have been practicing drawing in the anime style using grids, and my latest work is in the spoiler below.

    What techniques and shortcuts could I use to improve my talent further?

    Thats not what I meant! lol
    Someone needs to teach you in person [​IMG].

    I am HORRIBLE at drawing. Specifically human art. My art teacher spent a little longer with me to improve on that [​IMG]. It didnt work too well.. but if you are interested into learning it, I am sure you can progress.

    Are both those images drawn by you? Well the red one looks.. WTF!

    • Hold the pencil in your hand, not with your foot.
    • Draw with your dominant hand.
    • Draw with your eyes open.
    • ????
    • Profit.


    Also, LOL. Good one.

    Welcome to the forums, Im glad that my story inspired you to channel your creative energy in a positive way.

    I must say that portrait of phoenixgoddess27 is eerily lifelike. And the mysteries behind that smile are comparable to the questions that stir in ones soul when gazing upon Leonardo's Mona Lisa.

    Keep up the good work, my friend, for the hand of God himself guides our hands and paint brushes.

    As I have been drawing for two hundreds of thousand years, I can tell you that your drawing is of a quality I have yet to see as perfect, but is better than even the Mona Lisa. As for a tip to help you with your drawing, try using multiple markers of different colors next time, to capture the essense of what you intend to draw. Also, tacos make everything better.
