Hey guys, i don't think i have many friends or watchers, but just wanted to give some advice for upcoming artists who feel they are struggling or in dire need of help.
I advise you to look at reference when you can't draw something, a little reference goes along way, because in time it will be etched into your memory, this is also true for figure drawing! Which is another important thing to do!
My biggest advice is to not give up, even if you don't feel up to par with other artirst or can't seem to learn things. Everyone has their own
techniques that help them. You can watch,read,copy how to draw tutorials but it wont always help, but it is best to take what you can from that and implement it in your studies.
One thing i discovered that works for me when drawing a character is to use a light color pencil (when doing traditional) for a rough draft before doing my final lines. Its a technique that helps me with placement and allows me to create fun poses. When i try to go to dark right away it makes things hard and feel constrained as well as finding myself erasing alot.
Same technique works when doing digital, except i start with a rough layer and build on top of that in new layers until i get a lineart i like.

All i am saying is find something that works for you and learn from others! See ya! Happy drawing!
