Hey there! :wave: You sent me a note for a gallery comment, so I hope I can say something helpful. ^^

I think what I noticed first about your gallery is the sheer volume of it; you have quite a lot of deviations, which is great because it shows that you have the motivation to practice and generate new material. And that desire to draw or create is really important! Even some of the most accomplished artists create at a slow pace, so it's great to see that you can actively make new things.

Also, I noticed the main subject material of your gallery: people! Looking through the gallery, you've improved a lot since your first deviations, and you've definitely gained a better grasp on shading, anatomy and proportions over a pretty short amount of time. You seem to enjoy creating and drawing different characters, and I love that your gallery has such a variety of people and characters. I think what I would most like to see more of in your gallery, though, is characters in "action" poses. They take a lot of practice to get right, but there is a certain stiffness in a character that stands in the center of the frame with his hands at his sides. Body language and a sense of movement can add a lot to the character's personality and the appeal of the image.

My best advice, I think, would be to check out some books or other resources on human anatomy, since those are endlessly helpful for any artist of any skill level or style. Studying and drawing people from life is a good way to practice, too. I'd also recommend adding a little variety to your gallery--maybe try drawing some animals or landscapes just to be different, or try drawing different poses as practice and play around with facial expressions. As long as you keep drawing and learning, really, you'll always continue to improve!

I hope that I've been able to say something helpful, and if you have any questions or want a more in-depth critique on something, let me know! :heart:

:thanks::thanks: Thank you very much for your input. I appreciate you taking the time to do so (and not bashing the living daylights out of my hard work).

People in general and anatomy are something I struggle with occasionally and still do. I have a hard time with action poses since I usually cannot fit the entire character onto the paper and some poses are really quite difficult like you said. If you can recommend some tutorials that would be extremely helpful as well. :heart:

Again, thanks so much for your suggestions and I would love to try them out sometime. ^^

No problem! There are tons of tutorials around, and some are better than others, but I found a few I thought you might find helpful or just might want to check out.

Here's some basic anatomy stuff:

Some fun ideas on character expressions: [link]
And some of these might be helpful for feet/hands/anatomy, too: [link]

Have fun! ^^

We luv ya here! :icononiontantrumplz: Keep on rockin okay!? :headbang: I've been going through a rough patch with my art too and I always end up remembering that I love my art because it's an expression of me! I'm still learning and I want to continue to learn and grow and I know you are the same way! Don't let people get you down because as long as you've got something to draw with, you can create a piece of you and do what makes you happy! And that's all that matters! :tighthug: We all hart ya here and don't you forget it!!! :iconhandsomeonionplz:

It seems like that's been happening to quite a few people. And I'm not upset because of something some ignorant troll said, or because someone left a mean critique on my work. I'm just upset because I couldn't help but notice that no one cares and it's stupid because I work just as hard making whatever garbage I manage to come up with look decent. On top of that, I just haven't been enjoying myself when it comes to drawing.

(Sry for ranting, btw. I just don't want my friends blaming themselves).

No no it's okay! It's quite okay to rant to me! In fact I rant too much so I don't mind people ranting to me dont worry!

That's what I mean like I go through that alot! I feel like I don't get enough feedback on the things I work hard on that makes me want to stop working...it happens alot believe me. But the more I draw the more I feel like this is why I do it...for me! I hope you find inspiration and your joy again because it would be a real shame if you stopped drawing...id miss it... :C Your art is quite good! I don't think it's bad at all don't call it garbage! I'm actually kind of jealous cus you and like everyone on DA are so quick at drawing things. Like me? It took years to just learn to draw a person. And I'm still tryin to master it. Like you have a knack for it (my bro too! gawd so envious how it doesn't take much time for yall to draw so quickly). I wanted to quit drawing people. Because I didn't like how the things I drew turned out (still kinda a problem but im still learning as I go XD). But I just kept up with it still keepin up with it...and maybe someday I will master people. But ya know that's whats being an artist like us is all about~ We gotta hang in there and have faith in ourselves so we can continue to grow.

I went to the museum once this one time. And it showed this one famous artist we all know. His work is well known, his paintings are well loved. His name is VanGogh. His art got almost nothing but negative feedback. And ya know what? That guy is kinda a role model to me. He kept on drawing his awesome strange and different style and he kept improving, trying new things as he went. He could have quit but he didn't. And one day he grew so masterful at his skill people recognized it and it became famous! I don't know if that's such a great role model cus I think he was kinda crazy. Butttttt I admire how he didn't care what people said. No no it's okay! It's quite okay to rant to me! In fact I rant too much so I don't mind people ranting to me dont worry!

Oh yes, I heard about VanGogh. Wasn't he the same guy who cut his ear off and sent it to some woman who rejected him?

I think anatomy is something we all struggle with. I think that anatomy and the awkward manner in which I draw my characters was one of the major reasons why I considered stopping. Because the character looked better in my head (rudeness from mean people didn't help either. >.<)

(Ummm...I think you wrote the first part twice, lol)
