...And when I say that, I'm not talking about me. lol I know that I have a lot more to improve. x3
This is a simple tutorial, who is also a friendly tip... :3
Some people often say that they would like to draw like me... But Lemme told you guys a thing... Don't try to draw like me... Try to draw, BETTER THAN me! <3
- Step #1: SET YOUR GOAL!
My improvement come from that way to think...
I used to think about Bernal's art....
"Someday, I'll be more awesome than this guy! >:3"
Of course that's not my desire to bypass no one... This is more like a "manthra"... Believe me, You'll work A LOT better if you have a goal. I call this system as "Master and pupil". I called this way to always remember me that I'm just a student, a pupil, who need to learn everyday if I prettend to someday be as great as my master.
Bernal used to be my "master". (Even if he didn't know it.) I tried to learn his style. His anatomy, coloring, and shading. I tried to apply his techniques at my style, that's a reall

left city streets in shame
and maimed the victors with thorns,
just to make you believe
in angels again.
Truth was never my home,
but I sought your history
in every face that fell
from too much grace and favor
or gazed upon the living
like so much cattle.
And I could feel you
time's sharp little acrobat
but nothing can grow in earth
this meek and soiled;
and my hands are bloodied
by the cries
of those you left starving.

From the moment she walks into her first class, she can't look away.
It's not like he's a particularly fine specimen of pubescent manhood - reddish blond hair, slim build, clothes too dark for his complexion (and wouldn't Kanaya be tickled at that, Terezi criticizing someone else's fashion) and heavy black glasses over his eyes. She doesn't think he notices her peeking at him - he doesn't look back, at least she doesn't think so. Then again, he could be shooting her a death glare behind those shades and she'd never know.
Stupid stupid dumb. Cool girls like Terezi do not stare at weird guys in their algebra class. No matter how oddly fascinating they are. She sighs, pushing back her own red shades to scrub her eyes. This jet-lag is getting to her something awful. Yeah. That's it. Jet-lag. She's tired, that's why she keeps staring like an idiot.
That's not even convincing in her head.

You wake up groggy and confused, and confused as to why you're confused. Then you remember - Jade spent the night at Rose's, and John's crashing on your couch. Some stupid tradition or something, he's not supposed to see her until she walks down the aisle or some kind of bullshit like that. All it really means is that you have to make your own coffee today.
You haul yourself out of bed and shuffle towards the kitchen, filling the coffeemaker and flipping the switch. John's curled into a tiny ball on one end of the couch - you flop down at the other, and when that doesn't wake him, you yank off his blanket. "Wake up, Egbert. Time to get married."
John grumbles for a moment, then his eyes snap open. "Holy shit." He sits up, hair even more of a mess than usual. "Dave... I'm getting married. In a couple hours."
You tilt your head back. "Yeah." It's way too early in the morning for you to try and deal with his nervous breakdown. "So you'd better do
14. AffectionHearts Boxcars had always known that he liked cute things. Maybe it was odd for a carapace of his stature and occupation, but he had never been one to follow the norm. That was why he had joined Slick's crew, after all. Regardless, this affinity for the adorable explained why he took it upon himself to look after Deuce when Slick and Droog would just as likely stand by and watch him blow himself up. It also explained the "doting uncle" attitude he'd taken towards the two young trolls that Slick and Droog had recently adopted. Even Aradia, who seemed impassive at best, smiled a bit when Boxcars offered her a lolipop. No one questioned the fact that he seemed to carry them in his pockets for just such an occasion.14.

Zacky sat down by Matt at the table, across from them was Jimmy, Johnny, and Brian. Well, it wasn't really across, the tables were round and could fit about 10 people at each. He could tell what Brian had told him about Matt was true, his eyes were red and puffy, and it made Zacky feel bad. He put a hand on Matt's back and Matt looked at him with a sad expression "I'm not mad Matt, I promise." he said with a trusting smile, that caused Matt to smile in return.
"Zacky I'm so sorry we did that to you....I feel terrible and I jump to conclusions a lot and Johnny's like my best friend, even if I pick on him all the time, but still...I really am sorry Zacky..." he said, lokking at him with pleading eyes.

Jimmy hurried into his and Matt's house, not only physically exhausted but also mentally exhausted, as well. The pain in his heart was deep, intense and constant. It was the worst pain he had felt in his whole life, and he felt absolutely sick to his stomach. He and Matt would have had a 2-year-old daughter of their own if it hadn't been for him and his disgusting self.

It wouldn't have hurt Matt and Jimmy nearly as badly if she had simply changed her mind and decided to raise her daughter on her own.
