First of all, I would like to thank the charming :iconKneeling-Glory: for giving me this one month subscription. I feel like I've been wasting it so I'm continuing the feature which I was supposed to do a while ago As a continuation of Late New Years Resolution http://charmed-ravenclaw.deviantart.com/journal/Late-New-Years-Resolution-Self-Improvement-Part-1-283400501 here are some other things I'd like to get better at in 2012!
I attempted to focus on perspective the other day. Didn't go so well but I found some great tutes!
An extra crease/folds tute!
An excellent Light and shadow tute! And closely related, a lineart one:
A really useful one for referencing poses!

Quilling!I was looking through a bunch of my old favourites when I decided to write my New Years Resolution when I came across something known as quilling. According to the almighty Wikipedia:Quilling!2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Quilling or paper filigree is an art form that involves the use of strips of paper that are rolled, shaped, and glued together to create decorative designs. The paper is wound around a quill to create a basic coil shape. The paper is then glued at the tip and these shaped coils are arranged to form flowers, leaves, and various ornamental patterns similar to ironwork.

2011 was a pretty good year for me artwise. I feel that I've actually improved in many areas that I wanted to improve in such as:
- Detail (at least in some of my vector pieces)
- Lineart (once again, in my vector pieces)
- Creativity (I think that's best in my traditional work)

So, I was inspired by the wonderful :iconKxhara: and in particular this deviation: to write a list of things I wanted to improve on as a belated New Years resolution featuring examples of things I want to be capable of doing as well as artists and stock that will help me! So things I would like to personally improve on in 2012:
