Subject title: Chen's sketchbook ★

Hey everyone~! This is my first time in this forum.

I'm not nearly as good as the others here, but I'm hoping to improve as much as I can.
In the past few months I started taking drawing more seriously (I've been drawing here and there, mostly portraits and occasionally digital anime style art), but lately I began making it a habit to draw everyday.
In the past few weeks I started doing some figure/gesture drawing and following the Proko playlist on YouTube. I'm still pretty bad at anatomy, but I'm trying to improve.

Now for the art-
EDIT I used links cause the picture turn out too big when I put them here :P
quick sketch from a few weeks ago, trying to combine anime and realistic style:

A drawing I finished today using Copic Markers, tried doing an original character for once since I always do fanart :P : (looking at it now I can see the arms are perhaps too short)

Welcome to the forum! Don't worry about how good the other artists . Try to be inspired by them to improve.
I like your original character. You are on a good path. Just a little work on proportion and anatomy.
Keep drawing and have fun.

Make your pic under !000 Height and width if you want to post them here

I second KeaneFox--others talents can and will inspire you, I promise. It also helps when they're critiquing you (although, don't be afraid to listen to people "below" your skill level or who focus on other skill sets, they can still be FANTASTIC for insight as to where you need to improve).

Welcome to the forum!

Well I am still young so I guess I got a long way to go :P

Hey! Nice sketchbook, I like your works :)
And yeah, don't worry about comparing yourself to others and just keep on going ^^

I can recommend good software to change size of your images. I'm personally using Fotosizer, which is free and pretty cool.
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.

Looks nice! I'd be careful with the way the stockings bend, because they're not following the form of the leg and it looks pretty wierd.
If you want to challenge yourself I'd say you could try a different pose or incorporate some form studying into your stuff

Otherwise, just keep drawing because when you draw something over again, you can do it better, or faster, and you can fix mistakes.

The last piece is pretty, I like her clothes ^^
I'd keep an eye on the size of the eyes when you draw them. They're pretty but sometimes they look a bit too big, if you consider the whole eyeball :0
Besideso f that your stuff is lovely ^^

Anatomy look good to me, but i feel like you don't know what to do with the arms. You draw the arms limp down, straight to the sides. In some of them one arm slightly raised. it becomes very notable when most of your drawing like that. I think Its not a big problem, just give the arms and hands something to do.
Please don't be discouraged because i love your style.

Thank you :) I haven't really noticed that but I'll definitely start working on giving the hands/arms different poses ^^
