Subject title: [Chimaera]

I've been seriously thinking about art as a career as of late. I'm skeptical of it working out for me, but eh. It's really the only thing I'm passionate about. Though I've been struggling to actually sit down and study. It's so overwhelming; there's just so many areas of art to study. Construction, form, line weight, values, anatomy, perspective, style, and so on. All that led to me deciding to make a sketchbook. Maybe I can learn from you guys as to what to study. And oh how I'd love to get some advice for once, I don't really have anyone to share my art with. Also let me just mention this, I love looking at everyone's sketchbooks on here, the lot of you are very ambitious and have showed much improvement over the years. Anyways I think too much, on to the actual sketches.

These are all from the last couple of days.

Trying out some lessons from DrawABox, haven't got very far since I only started few days ago.

I heard drawing skulls helps with drawing faces. Anyone know of any good resources for learning how to draw skulls? I've just been getting pictures off of Bing and referencing a Bridgman book. Bridgman's complete guide to drawing from life is one of the only art books I own haha.

Image
Did some of these in the car.
Image

Was playing Dragon Age: Inquisition and decided I wanted to try making a tarot card for my inquisitor, this shit is a lot harder than I thought it'd be.

Image

Thank you for taking a look. Hoping to upload some stuff every couple days, if not every day. <3
Also, I'll edit images to be smaller in future uploads haha.

Hah, yeah you're not the only one who thinks they are a bit boring and hard to do! I am also not used to drawing with my shoulder, but for me they are difficult mostly because I'm trying to get through them without banging my head against the wall >-< (I get bored really easily ha). The exercises do start to look a little more interesting later though!

I was getting frustrated with how I could draw a nice skull with reference yet I'd struggle drawing them from imagination so I practiced iterative drawing. First and second row of skulls were done half with reference and the bottom row were all from imagination~

I admire your skull studies! Also the form ones. Do more of them :D
And your digital painting looks nice :)
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.

Nice design. I like how you added a skull on her kneecap. I might actually steal *ahem* I mean borrow that idea from you and add it to my own character.
