Teaching yourself to draw [Part 1: Stylizing]
Practice, they say. So you go and draw more, right? Sounds easy! A few months later, and look - you're better at drawing. Cats. Or dragons. Or whatever your poison of choice happens to be.
But now you want to draw something else.
So you start alllll over again. Great.
The problem with all those guides floating around (you know the kind; the title is 'Magic tip to become an awesome artist," and there's a clickthrough, and it says something along the lines of 'draw more.') is that they're missing something very essential that people who got a great art education to start with never had a problem with. Most of the young/new artists out there who are having problems learning to draw (I'm still a new artist myself; but I think I've got the learning part down now - otherwise I wouldn't bother writing this...) are approaching things from a strange direction; they're learning from observing Manga or MLP or other people's art, but they want to draw other stuff too. Unfortunately, a lot of them

No worries :) You do great work and have an intriguing style so I cannot wait to see more.
I also find color is something I struggle with the most, and your tutorials have a clear way of communicating the information which is difficult to find.
