Subject title: Impish sketchbook, no time like the present, huh

Hello, and hello again. I, as you probably have guessed, am new here and am fairly new to the whole art-stuff in general.
I have been debating myself if I should register and start a sketchbook, since I don't think my works are post-worthy most of the time, but I also have been struggling a lot without any art-friends to talk to, so what the hell, I'll let you dig through my junk if you want to.

So, to start I just going to post my most recent sketches, without any real theme. Not so much studies as much just thing I've been drawing for one reason or the other. At least for now, because I am not going to wait a good opportunity to post for another who-knows-how-long.

So yeah, welcome to my dump.

Here where I'm pretty much at, from older to newer, and only stuff that I've posted at some other places.

And this is my way to spend commute to work and back home - finger-sketching on my asus phone-pad

Still doing finger-drawing while commuting.

So things I realised - I do too much scratching while drawing so I decided to draw "cleaner" every time I draw, no matter what tools I use (oh I can't wait to try and do "cleaner" job with a charcoal). Still quite a bit of scratching but hey, one step at the time.
Oh, that and why the hell I don't draw legs?

Aww, thank you!
I think I shouldn't post older images any more and only post things I draw right now, to, hopefully, see some progress.

Welcome to the forum, and your characters are awesome! I can also see how much of an improvement your "cleaner" sketching style has over the scratchier method. I've found that forcing myself to use cleaner lines has also helped things like drawing confidence and taking form into more careful consideration. Hope you stick around! :)

Thank you, I try now to draw more with less lines, I fail miserably, but I do try (=

Here, I did another finger-drawing.
Boobs are hard, boobs with any force applied to them are even harder. I tried to do boobs held by bandages but failed, so I cut my losses by keeping the more round shape and pretending I meant it to be like that.

My faces are all look alike and are way too expressionless to my liking. I should draw more faces.

What helped me alot was just playing around with the proportions, or moving the parts of the face around.

As for expressions, I practice them sometimes with some character I drew. I pick one character and draw various expressions with that character and see if I like the results.

Hope I could help a little bit P:

I probably should make a character to practice on then (=
Because for all the characters I draw I don't have any. They're all just lifeless figures.

You have very nice sketchbook here :)
I like your characters a lot! Especially their gestures and poses.
I'm looking forward to see next updates ^^
I like to draw girls. If you like girls too, you should check my Sketchbook ^^
There's stuff on my Twitter and Instagram too.
I do streams sometimes, mostly weekends on my Picarto channel.

So, to achieve at least some levels of Koźlikness I decided to start a new sketchbook, just to put more quick practice while I commute to work, instead of spending time polishing turds on my phone-pad. I am going to do more sketches from memory. I have a long road ahead of me.

To start, here's some more of my finger-skethces

And here's the start of my new sketchbook, a bunch of shitty photos, suits it just right.

I gotta admit, I am very uncomfortable posting this, or anything I draw, actually. I always feel lazy and unskilled compared to people here. Although you lot are an inspiration to keep on going no matter what I can't shake the feeling of "oh shit, people gonna see these!"

Being uncomfortable to post drawings is a problem that I and some friends of mine also have and it is really understandable. A sketchbook in the end is a very personal thing, I guess kind of like a diary. I guess when I think about it, I kind of fear that people will not like my work or not understand it, but every creator of something is liked and also disliked by people. I think that if you just keep posting stuff, you will feel more confident over time to share your works.

Also, the first pages in your sketchbook are a good start!

Thank you.
But the thing that scares me the most is that people will see how lazy I am. Because I can bullshit my way posting semi-presentable stuff, but a sketchbook? It's a raw representation of your work, not even art necessary, but actual work, time, thought and or feeling you put into your skill, and my efforts are lacking.
And that's why I post this, because I want you to sneer at it, I want to get pissed enough to push through my laziness.

It's been a while. I guess this is where I am at right now. I have to practice more.

I feel this deep. I hate my own work and i hate posting it anywhere unless i'm somewhat satisfied with the result. But i have to get over it somehow right?
