My Bio
I go barefoot in real life, full-time, and have for many, many years. See barefooters.org for more info! I also tend to roleplay (and draw) barefoot characters, almost never humans, specializing in aliens and elves, hence: BarefootAlien!

Oh my, whatever do those bikers have planned for him, I wonder?
I definitely recommend it, especially if you're going more stylistic.

If you're more interested in realism, I'd take a serious look at Corel Painter... though it does depend on what hardware you have.

The key difference is that Corel supports much more realistic physical art tools, but to really take advantage you need a tablet with not only pressure, but angle and rotation control on the stylus as well. If you do, it can do things like load up a realistic-behaving palette knife with a finite amount of paint, that acts and runs out realistically, load up finite, realistic amounts of paint onto brushes that gradually runs out, etc.

For more stylized art though, I find that CSP has really amazing features that are really intuitive and easy to use... and the 3D features are just amazing. It even has auto-color and if you have the EX version, it can automatically convert photographs into comic-style art backgrounds. Even with Pro though, you get the auto-coloring (which I don't use but is still cool) and 3D drawing dolls, which I use all the time.

Anyway, as for plane changes, it looks like you're focusing on the planes of the hand rather than the bone structure or just copying outlines. I actually suspected you might be following a specific tutorial on it I saw a while back, heh.

Nice! I can see you're focusing on plane changes. Are you in school, or following any particular courses?

If I had one comment, it's that the wrist bones look like they're an inch or two too far up the forearm, but overall very good.

For faces, I recommend "How to Draw Heads - Step by Step - From Any Angle" on Udemy, by Robert Marzullo. It's a comic book style, while it seems like your focus so far is more on realism, but it's the best tutorial I've found for how to build faces with the Loomis method. He's a really good teacher, and keeps adding more content for free, and interacts with students a lot.

For bodies... I don't think you can beat a drawing doll, either physical if you're traditional, or something like the one in Clip Studio Paint (Manga Studio). What I do is sketch from imagination, then make a drawing doll in the same pose and see how far off I was and where, so I can learn what to improve.

I like this! Very striking colors.

Also, Merry Christmas!

Also also, have you seen my stuff lately?
