This was created a few days ago. I was experimenting with watercolour and the end result came out nicely.

Nice sketchbook, really like your robot designs.
On your last drawing you kept a nice form but you, but missed it on the right wing which looks a bit flat. also the left foot hovers.

Overall I like it! Keep practicing and keep experimenting with new mediums! :)

Ah i only realised the foot was hovering after i was done with inking. I'm actually having issues with keeping forms consistently three dimensional (thanks for pointing out the right wing though, not something i noticed).

Hi Crow!

Your compositions are very good. I'd like to see a landscape from you!

The only tip I'd have for you is making the cranium a little longer in terms of the distance from the forehead to the back of the head. Skulls fit almost perfectly into a square.

Keep going mate, you're onto something!
...you see, it's supposed to be fi_le like the file from the computer... the one where you put the data things in.

I really like your skull studies. Also those sketches are nice. It's ok if you need a break or if some days you want to draw less what matters is keep going forward. Also about not liking your art means you have progressed and you start to see your mistakes, it's part of the process don't worry you are going to get better. Every artists get through those things don't worry!

I have a hard time focusing on what i want to draw. I've been feeling a bit 'foggy' lately and my productivity is suffering as a result.

Here's todays sketches.

Some of these sketches were based on references.
The robot design was based on a Robotic piece and a flamingo/pelican head.

I feel like my "skill" is improving but i'm not too sure. I haven't really made any finished pieces in a while so i might work on a project soon.

Haven't uploaded any art in a while, iv'e been depressed so i took frequent long breaks from creating. Not particularly proud of my art but i can see some improvement.

I should draw more birds, they're quite fun. Also i like the way these skulls came out.

I wanted to create some more 'polished' drawings because i primarily focus on sketches.
