    Default In Progress

    So, I am wondering if I should upgrade my art supplies. I feel like I am not improving that much. I am also pretty lost on how to improve my work. Anyways, here's my current drawings:

    Does anyone have any advice of how I can redeem this drawing? I don't know what to mess up with Riku or Sora's skin color. I picture this scene during sunset or something like.

    with your minds

    Default Re: In Progress

    In terms of the sand and smaller details, your current art supplies seem to work good for it, but for the larger stuff you'll probably need upgrade, though I suggest when buying new stuff to only buy a few at first so you can properly test them out to see if they're worth it or feel the need to try something else. That way you won't feel like you've spent a lot for nothing (I'm always on a budget so I have to be very careful when picking new products.)

    Seeing how Kairi's skin is, I believe you'll be fine coloring Riku and Sora's skin, but I completely understand your feeling on not wanting mess it up.

    As for improvement, suggestions that comes to mind at the moment is to use references if you're not already, and to sketch things out on another piece of paper before doing it for real. Having the idea out can help big time, even if it's a little scribble on some scrap paper.

    I need some advice in regards to shading in lighting. The picture at the bottom is a reference. The character doesn't belong to me, he's named Akio Ohtori from Revolutionary Princess Utena. I don't know if you have heard of it. I want to make the things behind Akio look like stairs along with making everything close to the original reference.

    The one below the Grovyle Deadpool, Raichu Deadpool and Sableye Gambit is a reference to the background. I believe the background is from an X-Men vs Streetfighter game.

    I like it! The top one could use some narrowing of the eyes, a tweak on the shoulders so the arms look more connected, and the hair could be made less wild, but it's not bad!

    That looks great Dreaded! I like how the picture on the top is turning out. Sorry that I'm also late to reply. :/

    with time, as a symptom

    Keep it up! The first sketch looks like it's coming along well, and the coloring on the last drawing is pretty neat as well.
    But also take care of yourself, I hear you that depression can be tough.

    Well, I have made some progress. I did try texturing in the first picture above but the second one I erased and inked in the details. Axel/Lea looks a bit like a Chocobo.

    How to improve the drawings...hmmm...well you could for fun just lurk around and take a bunch of tutorials.

    Other than that the obvious thing, which is just keep drawing as much as you can.

    Thanks. I don't seem to be drawing as much as I used to in the past, though I do what I can do. I just need to stick with finishing my work. Here's one of my latest works.
