Since you're one of my active commentators I decided to go through your gallery and find some more illustrations that I like. That is a really difficult task to accomplish because there is so much in your gallery that I like.

I really like this illustration a lot because you did such a wonderful job showing fabric folds. Plus the subject is so nicely drawn as well. Beautiful lips and eyes.

:XD: constructive hints are most important, right? I try my best to follow your progress!
thanks again for your comment! I'm happy you like it, although that drawing is very old now I can now do much better

well it's a damn old work and when I started working on it, I changed few details compared to the reference. as you can see, she wears more clothes ;) and I've had issues with the angle of her back, it turned out to be a total mess.
I focused more on the shape of her body, and when it comes to draw her back I decided to leave it out. It would have kinda crashed my drawing, although it looks beautiful on her "real" back.
btw you're the first one who ever asked me!

:) i saw that one last year i think, and i can never forget girls with attitude and the pose was awesome, unforgettable :D "eyes on the prize!" :blush:

u could have tried, u do very clean and soft artworks, u might have succeeded. i can never keep mine clean enough for soft shading, but working on it..

mhh I guess you're right... I've never tried to draw tattoos before, maybe I should give it a try.

oh I really like your gallery! you've got a great drawing style! human skin looks very natural and soft shaded by you, now matter what you're telling me :P

hmmm thx for the props, but i have to disagree, my hand adapts to the relationship between light and dark, i wish i had a style, but my parents didnt let me do art school to evolve one.. there are alot of things i dont "see" yet when i'm drawing.. so if its anything great about it, its pure coincidence.

i'm not ready to do tattooed skin yet.. but like i said, u could try..

ohh don't be to impatient, you DO have a style. believe me, it just takes a while untill you can see your own style in your work.
mmhh going to art school isn't always worthwhile. I've been to different art school in my free time for about 10 years. at first it really benefits, you're quickly improving your style. but after a while you meet teachers who want to tell you something about how to handle a pencils, trying to influence your work or just tell you it looks good without any useful hints.

I found out drawing with people who also love arts benefits most. it doesn't matter how experienced they are, as long as they're interested in helping each other. the biggest advantage is saving money, and you can meet at each other's home so you don't have to travel. when you're living in a bigger town I'm sure there are few private drawing groups around :)

wow.. u're like the first person here that made me feel important, gave me attention, and some proper advices.. i dont have notes in my inbox as long as your coments :).

dunno about that last part.. i mean money would not be an issue here as long as i got my job, but my job has nothing to do with art and its kinda holding me down.. i mean, i only have my weekends to do some pencil works, and not even the weekends if i want to be socially active :D.. and i dont want to give it up for something as useless and inconsistent as art. dont get me wrong, i'm trying to stay as much realistic as i can.

i'm a bit of a loner, even when i'm surrounded by friends, so i'd be joning groups, but only to observe i guess, i learned a lot for the last 3-4 months just by looking at traditional artworks.

you're most welcome!
the longer you get involved to the community, the more people you'll get to know who really want to help each other.

mh I know what you mean. when I started studying at university I first didn't had any time at all. but by now I adjusted to very less freetime. I sometimes prefer drawing than learning, so I kind of force me to keep my biggest passion alive. I can really understand your situation but honestly when art means that much too you, sooner or later you'll find the time for it. I needed a long time untill I returned to draw continuously.
just take your time and get to know some people on DA! I do also feel the way that looking at other artists' work makes you lern a lot!

There's nothing to say about this apart from the fact it's great art and I bet your ex is eating his heart now and thinking of ways to get back with you. Personally, I think he might be a little crazy to have let you go in the first place, lol. You have a great style.

yeah I'm sure he regrets some things but to be honest I'm more than glad to be rid of him. I prefer being with people who estimate my art more and help me improving my style. I'm doing much better now!

You are young and very beautiful with a real talent. I'm sure you will be overwhelmed with guys wanting to form a relationship. And really, you could pick who you want, I'm sure. But you know you are courting one muse now whose jealous by nature and will demand all your time and then some; for your whole life... Art. I still haven't discovered whether this lover is a gift or a curse, lol.

oh you're so damn right... when we don't paint or draw we feel like incomplete. but I really don't ever want to decide wether I live for art or the people I love.

Is it easy to live with anyone? I guess there are a few success stories :Joy: I've lived alone for so long now I wouldn't know what would be expected of me in a relationship. I enjoy the models' company when I paint them and some have been lovers and some are still friends. I had the choice once of choosing art or family. I choose family. Still don't know if it was the right or wrong call. All I know for sure is, people come and go, but art stays with you always :Love:

It was a long time ago and it did change my life and took me away from art for many years. But I've been forced away before and always came back to what I love most in this world apart from women, lol. I'm sure you and art will have a long and fruitful life together and still find a space for someone special. Just make sure the guy you choose understands your an artist and everything else comes second, lol. Seriously, you have the one and I'm sure one day you will find the other and you'll become a very happy woman :Joy:

This is a wonderful drawing, the shading is very well done and the only critique i would mentioned would have been the hand, but some one has already commented and done a much better job then i would have. Great work keep it up!

Great choice of reference! Love the sultry pose, and just about everything looks great! The only thing that really seems to need work on is the hand that goes out in front of her. The base of the fingers are starting to low so it makes it look a tad misformed. I love the individual strands of hair!

yeah, you're right, her hand was the hardest part for me to draw. I probably erased it 6 or 7 times and every time I started again it seemed to look even worse :( I'm not satisfied with the result but I wasn't able to improve it anymore.
thanks for your comment!
