Real name Alyssa but I like to be called by my nickname Lucy. I'm 23 years old. I love flowers, astronomy, art, animals and horror movies. Favorite colors purple, blue and red. I'm a Pagan, I believe in many Gods.
I understand the feeling of defeat. I too was unconfident in my ability to draw people. Although I am a far cry from what I was when I first started over 14 years ago, I am still learning and still practicing. If I were you and would like to improve my ability to draw and to make better art and get a better grasp at learning human anatomy and learn the female physique, I would stay away from the Azealia Dolls. Almost your entire gallery is composed of Azealia Dolls. I am not trying to crap on your art, but I looked at some of your original works of art from 2016, despite the fact that they were not all that appealing to look at, you still had serious potential. Had you continued practicing your skills rather than gravitating towards the premade Azealia Dolls, you would have surprised yourself. Had you kept continuing with evolving your art-style through self teaching and self discipline your art would be borderline halfway professional-looking for a hobbyist artist and this is coming from a soft-spoken attack helicopter who still considers its own art to be of "average quality". I will not add any of your Azealia Dolls to my favorites gallery, but I will add your 2 original works of "Athena" to my favorites gallery in hopes that you will stop making Azealia Dolls and try drawing some original works. Practice your skills, I know it seems like a monumental-insurmountable task, but like the Olympic Athletes, they didn't become good at what they did as far as sports were concerned, overnight. No, they practiced, they trained, they conditioned their bodies, competed in many games, and I'm sure that they failed many of them too; the big takeaway is that they dusted themselves off and kept going (at least the good ones who were serious about wanting to improve themselves, did). Please go back to drawing. If you need to use photographic references, then photographic references. Believe me there is no shame in that (as long as you don't start tracing your own art). Even I will reference something from time to time.
You are most welcome. Mistakes will be made, lots of mistakes it is all a matter of learning and overcoming your mistakes. Again it could take you as little as a few days to learn how to draw people or even a few years, but fear not Rome was not built in a day.
