oh gosh thank you! thats really nice of you ; v ; i’ve been drawing for too long wow uh… i started when i was about 4 i believe? thats the earliest i can remember but i feel like i didnt start taking my drawing seriously until the beginning of high school :O
im really flattered that you like my work enough to ask this buT I REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY wouldnt recommend following what i do cause i have no idea how to use cs6 really, only the basics but even then not really;; here are some process shots tho?? i’ve never done this so i hope you find these a little useful!
ah thank you so much! im sorry tho im not very good with giving advice and this is the most repeated word any artist (or anyone trying to hone a skill rlly) has ever heard but PRACTICE.
PRACTICE ALL THE TIME
im still learning and im not at the level i want to be but you just!!! have to practice a lot!! especially if you’re the kind of artist that can only do it on and off and you need references!! references are really good tho so dont feel bad for using them but try to at first do it on your own and see what you took from your source and then look at your ref after and to take note on what you need to work on
try to draw when you dont have anything to look at and go off from your head, do it casually! doodling is really important in the learning process cause it loosens you up and gets your mind to be more fluid with your ideas?? idk if i phrased that right but it helps me a lot cause i just draw one thing after the next and even tho its messy and doesnt look all that right im too focused on just getting everything out on paper to care. which is good! for me at least because it gets your brain juices flowing >:OO
another things that helps is life drawing of course but like really quick, timed life drawing. just get the basic shapes and lines out cause when you get down to it, thats all art is. simplify what you’re doing and build up from there
