Holy crap your art is perfect for studying and practicing. Thank you so much for making so many anatomy tutorials and just generally showing how you crafted most of your drawings!

thank you so much for the kind words. :) 
i'm happy you were able to get something from my studies.

Didn't say nothing you didn't deserve! Not enough people show their process and your technique is a really great way for someone with little experience to build something decent.

thanks again! :)
over the years i was very fortunate to have the opportunity to learn from some very good instructors. even after my art education ended i continued to study and practice.

some very important things to always keep in mind are-
-build a good simple understanding of the basics (structure, proportion, perspective, anatomy)
-learn how to break down any form into basic shapes (keep it geometric, keep it simple)
-learn to draw loose (don't be afraid to draw sketchy)
-don't worry if a drawing doesn't come as you'd hoped (it's all just practice)

Your work is truly inspiring, I love how you draw Batman in your own style!
myconius Featured By Owner Nov 13, 2016   Traditional Artist
thank you very much :)

and i'm very flattered you enjoy my Batman art.
it's helpful to study a good variety of other artists and pick and chose the traits that you enjoy from each. :)

as much as i have always enjoyed comic style art, i blend what i've picked up from classical artists into my comic art and vice versa.

Yeah, that's what I try to do, it's a fun way of developing my "own" style, sorta, because there's a lot of great Batman artists, and I can see the classical influence in all of your work, not only Batman's, that's pretty amazing I have to say.

I'm pretty sure you won't remember, but I've known DeviantArt for a few years, and I made an account back then, and, I had the opportunity to ask you if I could do a rendition of your work (…), which you said yes, it was a long time ago, I don't even remember my username, but can I reupload it if I find it again? It was one of the best pieces I've drawn since I started this journey, honestly, because my skills at that time were nonexistant hahahaha.
