I'm new here and CA seems like a really cool place that will help me improve. (Something I've been struggling with this year.) So comments and critiques are definitely welcome and I hope you can enjoy my drawings. :D

This is all stylised - now try to draw from life and show the real you.

Kinda forgot I had a CA Sketchbook. XD
Black Spot: Okay, I'll try to work on that.

Cool. I like some of the funky textures you got going in some of the backgrounds.
I think if you really want to get better, you need to distance yourself from the anime for a little bit and crack down on some studying from life. Try and take a Life Drawing class if you can. And try reducing things you see to spheres and cubes and cones.
Style, I think, is something you really develop after you've got those basics.
Keep us updated!

Death Chalupa: Yeah, I love me some textures.
Thank you very much for the advice. I'm working on some RL drawings right now. :)
Thanks a la bapsi! :D
Next post will have realism in it. /)*O*(\
For now you'll have to deal with more anime. *evil laughter*

Is there any way I can edit the title of my sketchbook? I ended up misspelling my own user-name. *fail* OTL
Here's some sketches I did. I copied them from a National Geographic magazine.
