(Question from my Ask.fm account)
I’ve been asked a lot about developing styles and improving so I thought I would make an advice comic for you lovelies~ :>
It’s so hard to explain about our development in art styles. We may be influenced by the same things, but how we illustrate, express, and think is completely different. It’s not something you can buy or learn in a class.
Remember that age doesn’t matter and it’s never too late. You can draw whether you’re 30 or 13. You’re still young! And there’s no rush. We learn at our pace and should be proud of ourselves for continuing to draw. Not many people realize that art is a pretty tough field and I know a couple that have given up and chosen other paths.
Improvement will happen if you keep on doing what you love. It will take time but keep practicing and months (or years) from now you’ll be amazed at how much you’ve progressed. Soon your doodles that used to take you 2 hours will take only a minute or less.
But again, you have to just do it. This applies with music, performance, or anything else. Tutorials, books, and advices won’t mean anything unless you actually do it.
Don’t think about what anyone will think, if you’ll be famous or not, or if you’ll develop a “unique” style. Just start drawing. Fanart, figure drawing, animals, anime, just do it!!
You will improve and you will create great things. Just do it!!
I hope this helps!
sticky note doodles from today
late night doodles are the best doodles
quick Lincoln doodle.
i wish we had a president with hair like this
i’m late for valentines day. hope this hair makes up for it
more sticky notes. nice to get away from digital, but time to go back to it
another late night doodle. always seems to go to Jojo
my friend stuffy and stuffchan requiem. He’s 2 lewd 4 me
I don’t upload as much as i should and i’ve been lazy for the past year, trying to do more though. But i think my problem (among many other things) is I have very poor Time Management skills (as in, i don’t set time to draw, only when i feel like it)
so, this year i’ll focus on learning to manage my time better and anatomy, perspective, composition, line weight, shading, lighting, shapes, expression, dynamics, ideas, lines, texture, rhythm, force, ah jeez.
also posting this helps add a little feel of commitment for me
He uses his Stand and Stand accessories
first drawing of the year.
hope to upload tons of more art this year. 2013 was kinda shitty art-wise, but i did learn a lot, now 2014 will putting it all to use.
plenty wrong with this drawing, but i’ll get the hang of it eventually
