Alright alright alright!
Let's get my comment on behalf of ProjectComment started!

Overall, you've been doing full body drawings recently, with the exception of the three upper-body drawings you've done in the last four deviations that was posted. Now, this ain't bad actually, 'cuz I like full body drawings (even though I barely draw them) since they give me a full view of what they look like, and sometimes, their behavior is also shown, most often through how they pose, or react to stuff. One slight thing I noticed though, is that sometimes, your proportions aren't spot on. For example, in your Pokemon Trainer, the right arm is a tad longer than what it's supposed to be. And in some others, the front-facing... face, are somewhat asymmetrical. What would help I guess is understanding the basic frames needed for sketching. I wouldn't suggest using a copy, paste and flip method to having more or less a symmetrical face, as this won't help with improving.

Now, let's move on to the questions you gave.

What would you personally prefer me to draw?
Being the indecisive assbag that I am, I just like all art in general. As long as it's been worked on with care, even if it's bad. Unlike some people who spend 1 minute messing with the circle tool to draw people, and posting over a hundred times per month. Those ones sicken me to the core.

What overall impression do you get?
What I get from your stuff are basically different poses, to probably get you used to drawing people in other poses, I presume? And most of these have a complete backdrop, to add some mood, and emotions. Not really sure if I'm right though, so pardon me for this question.

Do you think I've improved from 2013 to the present?
Definitely, no questions need be asked.

What is your favourite artwork from my gallery?
The Gift of Art, no doubt.

What does my artwork say about me?
Hardworking, gives care and attention to artwork, tries to improve, but does it slowly. Sorry. :/

Anyways, that's all for today, and thanks for reading this, when you do.
A hypocritical idiot, signing off.

Hello from ProjectComment!
You have a lot of questions listed so bare with me if this is long.:heart:
What would you personally prefer me to draw?
As a fan I like just seeing whatever art another person does. Whatever they feel passionate about and can reflect that passion in the image, I think is the best art to look at and enjoy. As an artist I know how it feels to want to give your watchers something they like. Me personally, my favorite things to see are fanart drawn in styles that are not of the original series. I also like fantasy stories, or just stories that are about persons and creatures that are not human. Humans bore me too much. But that's just me. 

What overall impression do you get? -and- What does my artworks say about me?
I think these two questions go hand-in-hand. Now I can only guess, and don't take it to heart if I'm wrong on anything. 
Your art to me, is in a middle stage of development. You've got the basics down but you need to refine them, as well as work on adding that little touch of inspiration that makes you an artist. Its one thing to draw a lot, its another to draw a lot that evokes an emotion, which to me is the goal of all artwork. 
You have a lot of manga characters, I even saw Reborn and Kaito Kid, which I'm super excited about! And to me that shows that either you've loved manga since you were young, or you're still young, but with 10 years on dA I'd have to guess the former. It's great that you can keep up your passions for such a long time! 

Do you think I've improved from 2013 to the present?
This is probably the hardest question for me to answer. It depends what you mean by improvements and what exactly your goal is. 
I'm guessing that you're wanting to draw manga or comics, and that your goal is to reach the "standard manga art style" or something close to it. I definitely think you're getting close, and I really enjoyed your two comics that I saw in your gallery, but it seems as if you've been a bit stagnant in the "improvements" for some time now. 
Don't get me wrong now, the improvements are there. They're just very subtle, and hard to see because a lot of your 2013 art is watercolors, which is less precise. You've definitely gotten better on your body shapes, though you pretty much had the sizes of this down from the start. Your anatomy was good, just having the curves in the right places has improved. 
If you want, a one thing that could push you to the next level would be doing a study on Clothing, how it wrinkles and sits on the body. For now all the clothing you draw is fairly form fitting, but I know when I look down on my tank-top that there's a big ole wrinkle going from the skinniest part of my waist to the middle of my body in the place where my shirts love to bunch up and make me pull them down over my pants repeatedly. Good ways to do this are A) Look at your own clothing. Paying attention to the waist, knees/elbows, and crotch areas because those are the most obvious in artwork. or B) Look at another artist's work in the style you want to draw. See where they put the wrinkles and look for patterns with characters who share similar poses or postures. 

What is your favourite artwork from my gallery?
Ignoring the Kaito Kid which I am biased towards since it's my favorite anime, I really like your watercolors. I saw [This One] and really enjoyed the pallet you used. Watercolors are not designed to be a precise art. Paintings with them are meant to be splotchy and irregular and you were able to use that effect in this piece, while still getting the woman's face shape that you'd wanted. My favorite area is the pink of the eyes. The blend from dark at the top to light at the bottom was well controlled, yet looks natural. I'd love to see you develop your watercolor skills more. It's a media that I've never successfully worked with, so I'm pretty jealous of anyone who can pull it off. 

I hope some of that helped! Have a great day and Keep up the amazing work!

I love long comments so its a pleasure to read these!

Thank you for all the details of your feedback <3

They are very insightful and I hope I can apply them to my future artworks!

Yes I definitely need to work on clothing now~ I've tried to focus on anatomy for some time and I guess I've quite neglected clothing and backgrounds hahaha!

Well I've loved drawing since I was a kid I started with really just drawing what I saw or what I thought, then I started drawing cartoons and power puff girls and then there was a time I drew mostly clothes but I guess I was like 11-12 then. In 6th grade my artworks was mostly anime and manga since my circle of friends was fond of them and I liked watching fushigi yugi during that time too xD. I liked anime and cartoons as a child too but only really focused on anime style in 6th grade xD

from 6th grade to high school and the 1st 2 years of college I was able to draw a lot so that was the 2005-2010 ishhhh then college became harder and then I graduated and got work lol.

Sorry for sharing my life story I kinda just wanted you to know I read and really appreciated your comment xD

Hello :) Here from ProjectComment and Gallery at a Glance.

:bulletgreen:If I was the only artist left in the world what would you tell me to work on for my art to be acceptable to you?
Well, as long as your art makes you happy and it's something you enjoy, it's always going to be acceptable. :) That's the most important thing as an artist. It's not always about the audience. Your art is personal to you and it's important to get the most out of it for yourself. If you're aiming to become a commercial artist, you will have different standards of acceptability than if you're just doing it for the love of it. You've also got a variety of things here in your gallery, from 3D modelling to photography, and it may help you to think about which part of your art you find most fulfilling to work with, so you have a focus.

:bulletgreen:What overall impression do you get from my gallery?
Your style has a bright, colourful manga/anime feel to it which lends itself very well to a more graphic design approach, very clean and striking, and your characters have a great deal of life and expression.

:bulletgreen:How old do you think I am at a glance of my artworks?
I am literally SO bad at guessing people's ages. I'm going to say 16-21. How close am I? Either way, your age really doesn't matter. You make art, you're an artist. :D

:bulletgreen:Do you think I've improved from 2013 to the present?
Definitely. Your confidence with using lines has improved, and your digital colouring is a lot cleaner and more skilful than the earliest pieces in your gallery.

:bulletgreen:What is your favourite artwork from my gallery?
I really like Gaia Comission:Noe Shu:Joker. It's adorable and very sharply created, very clean and would look great on a t-shirt or similar.

Thank you for the wonderful comment!
hahahah I actually see a pattern with people guessing my age! XD My birthday just finished a few weeks ago and I hit the magic number 25 xD!
I use this question for the past Gallery at a glance and all have almost the same guess as you XD

I'm glad you think I've improved as well~ 

Thank you very much!

Hi! I'm from project comment :iconprojectcomment:

We have both signed up up to Gallery at a Glance and we have both been assigned to the same group.
You had 5 questions which I will try to answer as good as I can. :) (Smile) 

Bullet; GreenIf I was the only artist left in the world what would you tell me to work on for my art to be acceptable to you?
This is hard to answer, because a lot of it is down to personal preference as well. I personally think you should draw what makes you happy and not what is acceptable for others. Your work is mainly digital and colourful, it is entirely different from what I have hanging on my wall in the living room here, but that doesn't mean your work is not good. :) 
If I have to advice you, I would say: "What do you wish to achieve with your skills? With your art?" and then have a good think on what you need to do to achieve those goals. Not only will it keep you going as an artist, it will also give you such a rewarding feeling when you have achieved it! :)

Bullet; GreenWhat overall impression do you get from my gallery?
I get an overall very happy feeling from your gallery. Your art work looks very colourful, happy and energetic. I can see your work is influenced by anime and personally think that it suits your style very well. 
There is a lot of work submitted and I am happy to see that you kept your older work on here as well as it shows how much growth you achieved as an artist over the years. 

Bullet; GreenHow old do you think I am at a glance of my artworks?
I am going to guess that you are middle to late teens? If not early twenties, but I wouldn't think that you would be older than 25.. (please do not be offended if I have this all wrong, I really REALLY suck at guessing peoples age). 

Bullet; GreenDo you think I've improved from 2013 to the present?
You have improved quite a bit. A lot of your recent work have more dynamic poses and sharper line work and more details. 

Bullet; GreenWhat is your favourite artwork from my gallery?
Definitely this one:…
I can see that you have put a lot of effort in the characters and the background and I think the overall piece works really well together. The colour scheme is beautiful and it is all nicely tied together with the poses and matching outfits. 

I hope this helps, please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. You have a gallery you can be very proud off and I hope you will keep up the good work. :)
