The improvement is showing. Be proud of it!
I see you are "keeping it up", so no need to say that again. Right on track!

My first "study" I guess. Tried to learn something about how better artists do the coloring/ lighting.

Maybe do that "draw my life" type video, where u give us a brief rundown of your biography while illustrating it.

Thanks for the suggestion. I am afraid people wouldnt really be interested in my personal history. Maybe some day in the future.

Good job with breaking the character down to basic shapes!
You can also try to draw his head from diffrent angles (for example profile) for better understanging of the structure :)

The Undertale character studies look rad!
I think you need a little work on lines, they're a bit rough and could use some cleaning up. Besides that, I see a lot of improvement! Keep up the awesome work :D

The last one really shows improvement =) Can I ask what program do you use? You mentioned that you had trouble with getting the kind of lines you would like, have you tried to find something or did you stick with what you had after all? I think more flow in your lines would help you to improve with other things in the end. Hope you don't mind me mentioning that ^-^ Are you doing some studies, exercises on the side too? You haven't posted many of those lately =)

No, it doesnt show improvement! :P Its the same as always! But because its a kind of portrait, I cleaned it up a bit.

I stick with what I had. I use Krita, have still a mini-lag when putting the pen down and I still make very many very short lines which then add up to one bigger line. If I draw one single line everything looks wonky. In my view with many short lines everything gets more solid. And I can clean it up afterwards.
Studies im doing at the moment only traditional, not in digital.

Maybe I will try the use-only-one-line-thing later and see what it looks like...

I like the last portrait too :)
Drawing long lines might be really hard when you're starting, but if you do exercises everyday it will pay off ;)

Well it takes some practice to achieve nice clean and swift lines, but it will speed up your drawing eventually, when you don't have to do milion of short lines. I am struggling with my lines in digital too, so I decided to do warm ups every day to improve my line quality and accuracy... It takes some time to get that muscle memory, but I think it is worth it. So maybe you could practice just lines for few minutes every day, it will add up and you will get better at it =) Just use some thicker tool/pencil than you use for those small short lines, it will go better, those super thin lines always look wobbly :D

Good video, watched that, thx. Exercises everyday, yes, maybe at least several days to test it.

I dont think that its my `muscle memory` or the thickness of the lines that need to be fixed. If i can draw something in traditional, but on the computerscreen it looks wobbly, its the translation of my hand movement to the movement of the cursor that is not 1:1 and needs to be taken into account. But yeah, by practice it will get better i guess, i'll try.

Here's a first exercise of drawing females with only using one line instead of many short lines:

It is muscle memory that develops the way you draw, and it does take a long while to refine it. I'd suggest using thick, bold lines like a gesture, that shows the form and dynamics of a pose instead of tiny hairy lines owo

Well it's not going to be better after just one drawing xD
It'll take thousands of drawings to improve
