Thanks for this llama badge. May I introduce myself to you?

Thank you very much for the :+fav:! :love:

My pleasure, it's a very nice illustration. :)

Glad you like it! :happybounce:

Your work is amzing! Please check out mine and give me some feedback. Thank you

I did and I think you have a good base and a strong line but it would be a good thing for you to practice a bit of anatomy, do some studies of different body parts as well as use reference when available because right now your characters feel a bit stiff. Your shading has also a good base , you just need a bit more of a gradient and contrast instead of flat lighting. You keep up the good work and keep practicing!

Thank you very much, I actually haven't studied anatomy, I normally just rely not my basic knowledge of it, but I hope to start doing a good study on it soon. I've probably been doing character design (normally only humans) for about a year now. Before I would have done only realistic drawing with coloured pencils and grafite ones, I was preety good at it... But then one day I tried sketching a person from Pinterest,(it didn't look preety good) something I wouldn't actually do... Thats when I discovered that there's much more than spending hours on just copying a picture, making it look as realistic as possible... Since then I've started drawing like that and found that I like character Design and drawing things from imagination... But thank you very much for your advice I try to open up my imagination more in character Design try to improve in it! Thank you again I really appreciate your feedback!!!
