It's been a year since I last drew and that was in the old thread here.

Started getting back at drawing 2 months ago near the end of December. Unlike past attempts though, this time I'm serious about getting better. I've given myself a small goal of drawing at least 30 minutes a day. Now that may not seem much but by achieving this goal each day, I've seen myself improve.

Anyways, here's the stuff I've drawn in those 2 months(Jan, Feb). Nothing really exciting, mostly studies, but I'd still like to show you guys.

Will be uploading future stuff in this thread.

Can you draw something out of your mind? Like..... Imaginative art? I can observe you that you kept on using Drawabox.com for your brainstorming and Learning.

I've done a few drawings without using a reference. I do them when I'm at school with nothing better to do.
They're usually just random sketches done on scrap paper which I just throw away when I'm done.

New Shtuff.

Not much study was done last week since it was exam week but I've decided to increase my drawing time from 30 mins to 2 hours. Hopefully I stick with it.

@Roland:
Thanks mate.

@deepstrasz
Thanks for the compliment.

I screwed up the formatting and how I uploaded images in the old thread making it looked messy. I didn't want to deal with cleaning it up. Also I didn't like the cringey title

New post, new update!

So it's been a while since my last upload. Sorry about that. Was too lazy to post my drawings but it doesn't mean I haven't been drawing. Although sad to say that I haven't done much drawing for the past month and a half because of school and because of laziness. But, I'm back at it again. Anyways, enough rambling. Here's some new stuff:

Studies: https://imgur.com/a/RTm2G

Non-Studies:

Currently working on cleaner line work.

Wow, nice study. I didnt see this thread till now o.o
Hmm... i see most of the legs are a bit short, or thats because i got too much stylized drawing?
I can see major improvent for only 3 months, damn, you sre a fast learner. And I can see that you are a really organized guy. Super cool! Keep it up buddy.

Your studies are going really nice already man. As they're doing fine now, I suggest now you should direct your efforts towards a fully-finished drawing to see what you get. You know, getting some pose + details + environment. But nice work!
Concept Art Contest #9: Overwhelming Odds *shamelessly advertising the next art competition as a very great drawing exercise*

uh oh, i see what you did here. You made te sketches one by one so it has big resolution, then color it digitally, one by one and put them in one place.
I actually still not sure what you made it. Looks like a princess protected by guards ambushed by spiders. But the concept is amazing, i really like it. Keep it up!

Yup. That way I can move them and edit them to my liking.

Yeah, the sketches are kinda bare bone right now. It should be pretty clear what happened when I finish it.
Nice perspective work! can't open your last post though D:
Thanks Mr. Goblin! The last post should be fine now. It's my fault for uploading the image at a retardedly high resolution at 7k.

More stuff. If you're wondering why a lot of them are unfinished, it's because I've been doing a lot of timed sketches lately where the time limit for working on each piece ranges from 30 sec to 30 minutes.

EDIT: Aaand the orientation of the images are fucked up. Hold up while I reupload to imgur.
EDIT2: Here.

Back at it again after 3 years. Haven't really drawn much since then but still trying chug along.
Here's some stuff I've done since then from oldest to more recent.

Looking back at my older drawings, I'm at least improving though at a snail's pace. Still ass at creative drawing though. Really need to do more of that

Posting random stuffs again.

Also, a trip down memory lane:

Amazing how small I've improved in 6 years. I guess I shouldn't be surprised considering how little I drew. But progress is progress :vw_love:
There's some gap years in there where I didn't draw cause of burnouts and other stuff.

Colored a sketch I did. Made a lot of mistakes with it that took too much time to handle. So, I quickly did the best I can to finish it.

Note: Do not zoom in, else you'll see my terrible coloring skills.

Happy holidays everyone! :vw_love:
Hope you're all doing well! Here's another update for you.
IMG_20201211_010052_475.jpg IMG_20201215_011503_889.jpg IMG_20201218_012220_242.jpg IMG_20201224_012652_632.jpg IMG_20201225_012633_756.jpg

Hoo boy! Haven't draw this much since ever. Getting that ipad has really made me enjoy drawing more with how portable it is and how great it feels to draw on.
But despite that, my biggest problem right now is consistency. I keep switching from subject to subject, style to style, etc. and it's turned me into a "jack of all trades, master of none" kinda thing. It's pretty much my fault really. I just wanna do all the arts! Guess I'm still in the exploration phase of art and haven't found yet the thing I want to focus on.

Anyways, sorry for that blog post. Here's what I'm working on right now!
