    Seeing my old drawings and comparing it to the present ones makes me oddly satisfied. Due to that, I've been redrawing old arts that I did before.
    Seeing my old drawings make me cringe so bad tbh..
    An old art I did like... Around 2009? Not so sure...

    Here's something I did a few days ago... Got lazy so didn't finish it yet. A redraw from last year.

    Still made mistakes here and there... And dem shading... Welp..

    I wish I could draw half as good as that... or was actually able to stay with one activity long enough to get anywhere in it.

    The detail of the face and hair definitely improved, but.. not much about the anatomy improved, I guess?

    Uhhh.. I dunno? I dont think I have my own art style tbh
    :blobpeek:
    I'm actually not that patient when drawing... That's why my lines are no as clean as I want them to be, or I made mistakes than I think I could've avoided xD
    Yea.. Sadly.. :blobcry:

    Aww man, you've made some really great progress! I think your best strides have been in your sense of colour and your shading, there's a real marked difference that's impressive. And although it make just be an effort/laziness issue, you're also better at not adding superfluous details and streamlining designs eg. removing the chain halterneck from the dress in the first image. It makes for a nicer, cleaner image imo!

    A problem you've retained, though, is that you draw hands too small. Even with the stylisation of larger heads in cartoony styles, they're a bit small. A good marker: If you place your hand flat over your face, with the heel of your palm at your chin, it should roughly reach a little above your eyebrows. Any shorter, and they're very small. Any larger, and you've contracted yaoi hands. :blobsmile:

    You could use H pencils to make an outline first to make sure your proportions are correct. Also, try to use fewer cleaner strokes to make your drawing look better. Other than that, keep up the good work.

    :blobsleepless: omgggg.. Thank you for that advice~
    Thank you~ been working on making my lines nice and smooth. I've read that inking your drawing using a brush instead of pen can help make your hands steady, so I'm practicing on that too. :sweating_profusely:

    Yes. Copying is the way to go. At least that's how I was taught.

    I think it would help if you copy the bargue plates. Look them up. They're classical drawings but if you master them you'd be able to adapt them in stylized drawings. Fashion magazines or any reference for that matter are fine too.

    Mistakes here and there... Ugh... outlining with a brush instead of a pen can be pretty tiring :sweating_profusely::sweating_profusely::sweating_profusely:
