A good way to improve is to study other's drawings and drawing from life. So here are some tips:
- Every day, draw from the site posemaniacs.com
- Study from Loomis, Bridgeman and Vilppu's books.
Copy their drawing and try to apply what you learn to your imaginative stuff.
- Draw things from life. Everything goes pretty much. People on the train, bus etc. Your dishes, shoes, cellphone, your hands, everything.
- Copy drawings you like. Just remember to say who your copying. and try to understand why the original artist placed the lines where he did.
- If your can find life drawing classes with models near where you live, go to those. Drawing from life is pure gold.
Drawing from imagination takes ALOT of work. Before you can do it properly, you need to study and create a library of shapes in your head. The aforementioned tips will help you build this library.
Keep drawing and posting...

Hello there. Nice start :D
I think you're doing well but practice drawing eyes and mouths more, they seem flat. As if you've looked at your refference and thought "I know what an eye looks like!" and not payed much attention to the manly little details that make a face 'pop out'.
Eyes and mouths are probably the hardest thing to get right, try practicing them in isolation for a bit.
I know Loomis is helpful when it comes to those things.
When you're drawing something, regardless of what it is. Don't just draw, think whilst you're doing it. Eyes aren't just a shape, they're a sphere sat inside the head with skin flaps covering them (romantic description, I know. xD)
Don't be dis-heartened. But certainly never believe you're at your best. Even the best artist you've ever seen has room for improvement. So keep working at it!
Hope to see some eye and mouth studies from you soon. :heart:
