Seriously, don't compare your work to others if it's gonna bring you down. It'll hinder you a ton because then you might start to have a fear of drawing; and to be honest, even I had that at one point. So if you're gonna compare your work.. compare it to yourself, because you can learn and grow and see progress that way.
Don't let others deter you from posting. Seriously, post away! I'd love to be able to help you even if you think you're just starting out! Don't be afraid to do it! Seriously, every artist has to start somewhere and it's really worth it if you feel like you want a second opinion or just some pointers!
Post, post, post! An art community really is that; a community! And we're here to support each other!
Emily: Thanks! I'd love to see some of your work, too!
I'm trying my hand at more dynamic poses-- I'm not having too much trouble with perspectives I've chosen as of yet, but I realized that facial structuring is hell of a lot more difficult than I anticipated. So while I hammer out the workings of things in that area, I thought I'd get some help on this little doodle I was working on. The man on the right is particularly uh... questionable, because I had a hard time imagining how his pose would look and couldn't find a ref. And maybe the girl's leg that's being tripped should have a bent knee? IDK v___v;;;
Gonna have to lock this one up. I plan on making a new thread today for general artistic critique, on all art forms. And given that this has been dead for 6 weeks, I think it'll be necessary to reinstate it later. But I want the drawover and paintover ideas to continue flowing. So anyone looking for someone to help on their drawings by drawing and painting over they will be allowed to post their work in the new thread. I'll have that up very soon guys, so bear with me while I get this section on track! Thanks!
