I really like your character designs! You've got a good sense of shapes and movement, and your color schemes have a great appeal in their simplicity. I think you could benefit from focusing more on incorporating 3D form in your drawings; it'd help your art look a little less flat and more constructed. Learning anatomy and whatnot will get much easier the more comfortable you are with 3D form. Keep up the great work, I'm interested to see your progress! :D

You are doing so well! I can already see it in your imagination drawing.

Something I really like about what you are doing are two things: you do the same training exercise multiple times. Some people only do them a few times and that's it. To become a great artist, you need to do the exercises over and over again.
Another thing you are doing really well is that you go out of your way to study difficult angles. You are studying looking down, up or any other combination of angles. Artist tend to shy away from those. By doing this, you learn to understand the subject in a 3D way instead of a couple of 2D images.

Because you do these two things, you are already improving fast! Just between your earlier faces and the portrait of the lady with the headphones, I see improvement. Your eyes, for example, are not drawn like symbols, instead you have defined the bottom plane of the eyes and the eyelids are clearly wrapping around the eyeballs. I can see this improvement in almost every other part of the drawing.

And the last thing I want to say is that you have been drawing quite a lot too. You are clealy working hard.

Please do keep it up!

We have DID (the thing Sycra has).

Quick summary of forum writers:
Artist: she is mainly the one who draws.
Writer: he is usually the one who writes on the forum.
Lawyer: he studies everything, honestly.

Plumbum makes some great points. It really looks like you're doing everything you can to improve as quickly as you can, and that's awesome. I very much like that portrait of the lady with the headphones, her eyes are very well done. Looking forward to seeing more:)

A redraw from an erlier photo. I think its fun to redraw things. It helps you see where you are progressing, and where you arent.

Welcome to the forum!
I recommend you to try to loosen your lines, try to draw with your whole arm and not so much with your wrist. I you know what I mean. :lol:
Keep up the good work!

Nice work, I like your mermaids.
A couple of tips, the women hands tend to be a bit less round, try to use straighter lines, they'll look more gentle.
Second tip, the scales looks kinda like fur, try to draw an "U" form.
Here's a video about how to draw them, it's a very realistic approach, but you can adjust it to match your style, like I did. I could certainly improve that nowadays, but, you get the picture. :lol:

Cheers!
