So, you get the whole song and dance, looking for anyone who knows anything on art and would love to dish out helpful critiques and such. Running commissions on my deviantART right now, as any money I have at the moment is dished out for Christmas, and…I'm low on supplies.

I got distracted a long time ago and lost track of this thread; I'm the guy who posts giant walls of texts.

Looking through what you've done since then, I can see progress; Particularly the sketches you did of a, uh, slightly wider hipped Hushu were going in a good direction, in my opinion. The more exaggerated body had a lot of shape and forced you to take dimension and form into account.

I'll mirror a post near the end of your last thread and recommend drawing from life; For cartoony stuff, it's incredibly important to know how the exaggerated and simplified forms in cartoons are derived from life. Try looking at pictures from life and create a simple base of the person using basic 3d shapes.

If you're weird and don't have a giant collection of pictures and videos of naked women to draw from, this website is nice: http://www.posemaniacs.com/thirtysecond

Use that tool to practice drawing the figure really quick. Go fast with loose strokes, and don't think about the details too much. Do that for like an hour a day for a week and you'll probably see some good results.

Rather than posting any sort of helpful info graphic, I opted to doodle in the oekaki thing.
Also please don't mix digital w/ traditional mediums that is triggering me. (The perfectly clean speech bubbles and dialogue box over the rough pen and pencil creates an unpleasant contrast.)

Sora here. Since I changed my name on DeviantART, might as well start going by Inkling on this site. Thanks for the feedback, I'll be sure to take your advice to heart. I find it ironic that for the past eight days I've been burnt out on drawing. I should go back and focus on it more, I know.

The problem with speech bubbles for me is that my handwriting is less than good, in fact, it's pretty awful. I've been working on it probably more than my drawing, but no matter how hard I work it…ends up flat. Believe me, I see the contrast, as well, but the only other alternative for me is…tracing the letters. I'll feel so childish if I do so, though. But, either way, I'll take as much of your advice as I can, and thank you kindly for posting on my thread.

Recent commission I did for a friend. Testing out Prismacolor Pencils now.

Decided to redo an old pic. Ish. Still a work in progress.
do you accept art requests by any chance?

On here, it's whatever interests me. I accept commissions through my dA.

Finished this commission up. Unrelated note: Just hit 300 watchers on dA. If you want to see my congratulatory pic, go vote on my recent poll.

Current spoils of work. Looked up some guides, I got into this tiny series called DRAW THIS, NOT THAT by LavenderTowne. Friend recommendation. I feel as though anyone's words are better than none. Watched their video on hair, now, the Hushu picture was inked before viewing, however, the other pictures were not.

Coloring this one soon.
Should also mention. The inking for Hushu is definitely not done.

I have no damn idea what I'm doing at all when it comes to digitally coloring. At all.
>>27
This isn't actually all that bad as far as coloring goes. I'd just say that you need to work on your line consistency and shading. Also, the inking is generally the darkest color in the picture unless it's colored inking, and then it's usually a darker shade of the color it's bordering.
>>28
Any tips for line stability or shading in Clip Studio Paint Pro? And I knew that it would be the darkest color, I just experimented to see what it would look like in colors other than…well, solid black.

I kind of have no other choice but to really post this here for now. Hopefully I'll have some stuff in here to prove commissioning me is worth it by tomorrow.

I've been learning a few new things from a YouTuber called LavenderTowne, an artist, about anatomy and expressions. You know, breaking up the body into simple shapes, drawing from life, all that stuff. Something she did teach in her video on "Mastering Cartoon Anatomy" is that pushing an expression can sometimes cause it to become better, I've personally been testing this on my own accord. I've been doodling from life as simple, personal sketches, and I think that helps out. I guess if I were to just point out my inspirations for what my…ugh, "style" is turning into, a tiny bit of LavenderTowne has rubbed off on me, along with one of my friends, who's assisting me through this art stuff, too. But one of my most early influences has got to be Tetsuya Nomura, whether it's subconscious, or completely conscious. Kingdom Hearts in general just made me want to push my stuff out there, I've based off one of my continuities off of a Kingdom Hearts-esc plot, only…minus the Disney, more leaning on the Final Fantasy inspiration, minus the…wacked up hair and outfits. Yeah, I know Nomura's anatomy is janky, but I absolutely love the way he draws his eyes. I have no idea why, they're just so appealing, the way they're bolded on the outside, and have a ring on the inside.

Oh, I should say something about the drawings. Well, I'm just kind of getting the feel of things at the moment. Note to self: Even with auto select, coloring on the same layer as the inking is a bad idea. I have no idea how I'm going to do the background on the Red sketch, and…yeah, I did cheat and import the stuff used in the game onto the picture. Placeholder for now. Unless I like it enough to keep in.

So this is what I've got so far. If anyone is interested in critiquing this stuff anymore.

In the vain attempt someone sees, and someone critiques me on this. Yeah, I did go for a more…over exaggerated back end, and I tried to justify it with a thick, chunky set of thighs, to hold it up.
If i wanted to commission you for line art, can you give me a example of it?

I think the best one that I have posted is the non colored, inked picture of Mitsuru, as seen here:

Even though I feel my art style is changing slowly.

On an unrelated note, I drew this sketch, with anatomy in mind. This guy kinda looks like Ethan Mars…welp.

You are definitely improving and finding your style, keep it up!

Alright, alright…hugh. Where do I begin? Not enough detail on my part, but I'll get it next time. Wonky looking face, but…I'll get there, I'll…ugh. Maybe I should just stop worrying so much about how it looks to the point where I get anxiety about how I draw and I should just…draw, and adapt myself to what I hear, instead of thinking so damn consciously about it. Think about it, but don't…you know, beat myself up about it. Feel like that's all I've been fucking doing and I'm sick of it.

More commission stuff. I've been working on my friend's stuff a lot lately. Like, a lot. Originally this character resembled an uncanny resemblance to Roll, kinda told him that was a bad, so, we changed it up. This is one of her outfits, I'll do the next one soon.
