Hi anon!! Thanks for the nice message!! By biggest piece of advice for improving is to just take a break from more stylized/cartoony art styles and to really go to the basics. Drawing from life (and going to figure drawing sessions) really really helps. Knowing how to draw anatomy realistically really helps your stylistic drawing too!! I’m not at home rn, but if you want any recs for good anatomy books, hmu a little later. Hope this helps!
could you make a video about finding your 'voice' as a writer? like stylistically? i love your writing videos!
There actually isn’t really a way to find your voice other than to write, write, and write some more. I don’t think writers can make conscious choices about their voice (short of weeding out technical errors), I think it’s just something you find and uncover as you gain experience. You will reach a point in your work where you will go “That’s it! That’s my voice!” For me it took three novels to start feeling I had a voice, and it wasn’t until my sixth novel that I felt my voice had solidified. Now I feel like I know my voice so well that I can describe it’s makings, workings, and tones–that took a lot of writing to get there. And, it took hearing some other people’s thoughts on my voice for me to realize where it was going.
this is one of my first “successful” digital arts but i’m kinda ‘eh’ about it what do you think???
!!!!! definitely very successful !! the first thing i actually noticed was how you coloured in the shirt, theres like a very subtle two tones goin on that looks really damn good !! its also a really nice blue, overall i think the colours look nice…. there’s not much colour but it all goes nicely !! and the way you’ve coloured too, like the white you’ve left in some places looks very… painterly!! its stylistic and i love it. also your linesssss! they’re awesome, they look really smooth like woah. also, a rlly cute expression, very :O i think this is awesome !! you obviously have really great potential for digital art if this is one of the first ones you deem as ‘successful’, keep drawing pls <33
