Yay for tutorials, spent the past week watching Draw with Jazza and Monique Renee

I must say I feel I have improved, I strongly suggest others go have a look at their channels, they are both really good at teaching and explaining how the body works and should look

I love to listen and absolutely love learning, and if I improve in the process all the better ^-^, I still look to your works when I want to understand colour and shadow, you are an excellent teacher I don't think I would have improved without your guidance ^-^

Me teach?, I'm better at giving pointer then at teaching, wouldn't say it was for a lack of trying though, I tried to teach a friend but she didn't understand anything I was sayingSweating a little...

Good to know someone is looking at 'em :)

My theory is that if one is a good student, then one knows what id needed to attain a certain outcome and therefore it is easier to pass on the knowledge to others. Perhaps with a little more time and you'll be teaching stuff.

It would be nice if I could pass on what I know, even better if it sticks with others :)

Well thanks for the many favs ^^"

Than I strangly hear this alot, many ppl that draw better then me (in my opinion at least) say I'm ahead cause I allways try new poses or stuff like that.

You can do the same, I mean with your skill and details, the poses for your chars would be much more impressive then mine :)

Your most welcome GiveMeAttentionPls, I'm loving the energy in your characters and I look forward to seeing more of your work ^-^

Thing is poses are difficult for me, even when I do draw out a pose it usually wind up very odd.

But thank you for the compliment, its much appreciated Hug

What tab do you use and what program do you intend on using for your drawings?

At the moment a pad from my friend "BAMBOO Pen"
Programms I use "Gimp" (planing on getting Manga Studio)

But all my drawings are made by Hand, not digital yet.

Well First thing I do to my tablet is set it up so that the touch only response to the pen this keeps the tablet from freaking out on you when you accidentally touch it with your arm well you are drawing with the pen.

In terms of programs you want to set the pressure sensitivity this well make it so when you draw with the tablet the lines work more or less like you are drawing with a pencil. I've never used Gimp or Manga studio but this tutorial explains how to set up the pressure on Gimp. This is very helpful as it gives you more control and freedom in my opinion 

www.youtube.com/watch?v=hQl6ZQ…

With layers you want to create a layers for rough work, and a layer for lines (this is your final line layout) you will delete the rough layer after you are happy with the final line work, then you add a layer for colours, keep the color layer under the line layer this makes it so you don't lose your line work. I will send you a Note with picture examples of what I am talking about.

As a side note when im working on the rough I lower the opacity so that it makes it easier to work on the final lines
but remember this is how I work you might find a another method that works for you ^-^

sorry for such a late responses it was late here so I went to bed Sweating a little...

Very, very nice!
I definitely will have a look at those sites, thanks a lot for sharing

The improvement is fantastic! General anatomy, body construction, gesture, your hard work shows and I have to take my hat off at it :clap: Did you also improved on hands? because the newest one has hers hidden x'D I was just wondering, because the most common complait is "hands and feet being too difficult to draw" and I personally love drawing them, even if they're far from perfect
