try checking out other people's account's then You should check out lastscionz... he updates everyday, and some of his old works were done using only the mouse, and it's pretty amazing.
What's your DA btw? I'll add you to my watch list :P


Haha, I hate my account name now, it irritates me. They need to make it so you can move all of your work to a new account without having to upload everything individually.

Here it is anyway: http://shinn-san.deviantart.com/

I have mostly photography on there right now, as you'll see. It's been awhile since I sketched anything.


k, got you on my watch list has been a while since i last updated my account too...


Hah, added you to mine too, as I'm sure you saw. Nice drawings on your account so far by the way.

Thanks. Try buying a tablet for your PC. Something like Wacom Bamboo (costs roughly a 100$). It helps a lot, especially if you use Photoshop

Yeah. I wish I had enough money to buy one, but I don't. It would help a ton though.

My problem: I'm horrible at drawing, and I need to improve! I mean....look!

Pretty bad, no? How could I improve? I've been practicing for over a year with no improvement.

I'm late but, draw people, from real life. Stop trying to do anime.


Whoa, I had forgotten I posted that, haha. But you're right, I started drawing more from life and I've improved quite a bit so far!

Yeah. I drew horribly, only could do really cartoony drawings, nothing original. I started to draw a little from real life and I got better. Still not very good, but I am improving pretty fast. Still can't draw original stuff though.

Original stuff is easier to draw. Nobody is around to correct your mistakes

Yeah, same here. I still can't do anything original, which is possibly what frustrates me the most, lol.

try learning proportions first. pick up a good art book (like 'How to Draw the Marvel Way' by Stan Lee to draw superheroes or polykarbon.com for manga style art.) and practice drawing to proportion before attempting anything else...


Well, I realize first I need to learn to draw from life, and get proportion down. I have to ask, is it alright to be only drawing from photos? I feel as though I'm doing something wrong that way. I probably won't get proportion right if I only draw from photos.

So, what are some good ways to get used to drawing without having to draw exactly what you see all the time?
Like...Sketching some guy you never saw before just from a description. That sort of thing.

And what would help practice proportions with realism? Any good sites?


wow. i commend your spirit..i hafta say keep it up.lolz..i know it's random..

Alright, this is pretty stupid and I know what you're going to say, but I need encouragement to do what it is you will surely suggest, so here it goes. I went to school with this girl from middle school through high school. We were best friends. Inseperable. Like sisters. Even on school nights we would be over at eachother's houses. We loved eachother very deeply. My senior year I moved away to California and we kindof lost touch. I moved back to Aspen a year later, but she had already moved to Denver for college so we still hardly ever saw eachother (except at anime and sci fi conventions) and when we did see eachother, she seemed distant and standoffish toward me. Eventually I moved to Denver for college as well. I continued trying to contact her and make time to hang out, but she always ended up flaking on me. I heard rumors that she was depressed and all she ever did was play WoW. Years passed, and I went to a party with my new boyfriend (we are engaged now). Lo and behold, there was my friend-she was dating one of my boyfriend's friends. Now we were back in the same circle, but she was never around. Turns out she was cheating on her boyfriend with a guy in NJ that she met on WoW. Another two years passed, never once did she accept my invitations to go out or to parties, and then one day she shows up at the bar I was bartending at. She shows off her new boyfriend from NJ and tells me how much she's going to miss me. She's moving to NJ with her bf, he was flying back that night so she needed a place to stay for a couple days before she left (my couch). We hung out at my bar until I got off, we were both pretty trashed at this point. It was my birthday and we had plans to go out to lunch the next day. I woke up with a raging hangover, and she was not on my couch. Her bags were gone. And that's the last I heard from her for nearly a year. So, time has passed and I have become very close friends with her ex (my boyfriend's friend). We hang out almost every day. So I'm at work about 5 days ago and I get a text message: "Hey I'm moving back to town and I need a place to crash for a week or so". It's her. Of course I accept, I can't say no to this woman, even if she's not the same person I remember. I warn her that I have been hanging out with her ex and he will most likely be around, and she assures me that it's not a problem and she's over it. She says she'll be here the next morning. 3 days later she shows up on my doorstep and unpacks. She complains about the smoke smell on my couch and is rude to my roommate when he comes home in the middle of the night while she's sleeping. The next day she doesn't respond to my texts. Her things are still at my house, so I know she'll be back, but my boyfriend, her ex and I are going to see a concert that night, so there will be no way for her to get in if she doesn't come home soon. I leave a key under the mat and send her a text telling her where to find it. Hours later she texts me back: "Sorry I'm such an inconvenience! I didn't mean to interfere with your social life! I'm sorry I will have my stuff out of your house tomorrow and I'll find someplace else to stay. I got a hotel for tonight". She always does this to me. Puts these brutal guilt trips on me when I'm trying to help her... Flakes out on me when it seems like we're going to reestablish our relationship... It's frustrating.

Congratulations on your engagement~ I wish you happines^-^

Well, thing is.. people change. I used to have a this best friend back when I was in grade school, and we were reallly close. but a few years later, everything changed. I changed the most to be specific. I moved to study in a different school, and when I came back, I tried to hang out with her again as much as possible, but it just didnt work. I didnt enjoy her company anymore. We're two totally different people now. we still meet, but we dont talk much. That's just how it is.

In your case, I think you should try to talk to her when you get the chance. Ask her what went wrong.
If she doesnt give you a proper answer, or if she acts cold, then that's just a sign that she's changed.

Tell her to scew off. And the faster she leaves, the better.
You don't need people like her in your life. She's clearly using you, kelle. She sounds like an annoying twat. People change, clearly you guys don't bond as you used to. What's the point of hanging out with someone you don't get along with?
You tried your best to help her out and was sincere.. there's no need for you to feel guilty at all.
It's not like you stopped breathing when she moved to NJ. You'll do fine without her in your life.

Am I invited to your wedding?
